Sea Monster!

Being a fan of pop up cards, I've been waiting for an opportunity to make the sea monster card from the Simple Pop Up Cards cart and here it is! 

Every year I challenge myself to make a card with a turtle in the design for my DSIL's birthday and this little guy from Stretch Your Imagination is one of my favorite images. I layered him to the corner of the 'Just Keep Swimming' sentiment from Animal Antics and added some light green gems hoping they would look like bubbles.  Since the sea monster's tentacles extend beyond the card, I placed the turtle slightly beyond the edge too.  I love the monochromatic look of this card with its pops of color.  : )

Here's the pop up sea monster in the middle of the card.  I cut the inner sentiment in the inside layer instead of writing it.  Still can't decide if that was a good choice or not!

I remember being scared silly as a child after reading John Wyndham's "The Kraken Wakes."  My dad was an avid sci-fi reader and I used to read his library books when he'd finished them - and sometimes, to his annoyance, while he was in the middle of reading one!   (I kept moving or losing his bookmarks, and couldn't resist telling him what was going to happen.)  

Thanks for visiting with me today. : )  Christine

A Print Then Cut Card

We are off on our travels tomorrow and I needed to make a quick card to encourage someone who has just had surgery. Thank you ProvoCraft for Print Then Cut!

The background comes from the Animal Antics cart and the cars come from the Disney Cars cart.  The cars are pop-dotted for dimension.

  I think it turned out cute!

 Right, back to the packing!  Thanks for visiting with me.  : ) Christine

Lame joke...

I know, but I promise you that my DGD thought it funny when I gave her the card and her valentine candy, last night!

S loves pandas and for her last birthday, my DDIL cut bunches of them from Create a Critter and hid them throughout the house.  The party guests had to find them all, count them (without moving any of them) and report the total to my DDIL.  What a fun game!  Lots of running about and squealing!  LOL!

Back to the card.  I searched and searched my stash for a newspaper print that was black and white rather than antiquey looking yellow - nothing!  Instead I had to go for a chalkboard look and I achieved this by inking inside my Cuttlebug Script embossing folder with black ink, adding white textured cardstock and rolling it through the Big Shot.  Very cool!

The panda comes from Animal Antics and the heart from Create a Critter.  The flowers are from Art Philosophy and I added three little red gems to the banner so that I could link my card with the Valentine Challenge at Exploring Cricut.

I am also linking with the FCCB  # 197 "I Heart you!" challenge here!

I'm not quite Valentine'd out, one more card to share later this week.   Thanks for visiting with me today!  Christine  : )

Valentine Treats Part 1!

 I was wandering around the aisles at Freddy's looking for Valentine candy for the DGKids.  There were the CUTEST heart shaped boxes of candy attached to the CUTEST stuffed animals and I was so tempted to buy them!  But, really, S and G and even J,  have bedrooms full of stuffies and have no room for any more.  Then it occurred to me that I could create a paper animal that would look just as cute since I have a gazillion carts!

My first thought was Teddy Bear Parade and the way Nadia morphed them into other animals - here
but I really, really, really don't like the bear's big head.

Her paws are holding a heart border cut from Paper Trimmings and the flowers are from Art Philosophy.   Back to the drawing board, as they say!

 I found this panda on Animal Antics and cut her out after 'hiding' the vacuum cleaner.  I DO like this one. 
I used three different patterned papers for the flowers so that I could enter my panda in the FCCB  Challenge # 195  Mix and Match

Again, I apologize for the quality of the photos since I took the pictures this evening and my DD, who was lending me her Lightbox to see if I like it, has not brought it up yet!!!!!

I'll be back with Part 2, tomorrow!  Thanks for visiting with me.  : ) Christine
