She's a Sassy Lady

Over at She's a Sassy Lady she has a challenge to make a gate card.  She had a fantastic video on making gate cards on the gypsy.  Mine didn't turn out the way I wanted it to but I improvised.  Here are my gate cards.

I made them with the Hello Kitty cartridge and my gypsy.  I tried to make it like She's a Sassy Lady was demonstrating but did not turn out quite right. So I had to make a bit of my own style. 
I stamped the Be Mine and stickled it and cut out in the shape of the heart and the star.
The ribbon tied on the side came from the Dollar Store.
I really liked how they turned out. 
Thanks for the challenge.  Took me out of my comfort zone.  LOL

PCC #76

First off I have a huge announcement.  I found out yesterday that I am going to be a grandma to twins.  My youngest daughter is due in August so excited. 

Now for the challenge at Paper Cutz Challenge this week is to make a card, LO, or project for Valentine's Day using a hand stamp, digital stamped, or cricut cut image of a cake, cupcake, cookies or candy, using any colors you'd like.

Here is my card for this week.

My sweet as candy card is made as an A2 card.  The candy is from the cartridge Celebrations and cut at 1 3/4 inches.  Then I use different pieces from the candy to put together to create the designs on the candy .
I use stickles on the candy to give it bling. 
The sweet heart is from Stampin' Up.  I colored with gel pens and put glossy accents on the globe to make it look like glass. 
The word "as" is cut from the cart. Blackletter on the gypsy at 1 1/4 inch.
The word "candy" is from the cart. Sans Serif cut at 1 1/2 inch on the gypsy
I purchase the ribbon for The General Dollar Store.
I used pop dot on all the candy items.
I hope to see your projects on Mr. Linky  at the PCC blog site for this week.

 Basic rule is to enjoy and create.

It is cut at 3 1/2 inches.
The LOVE is from the Home Accent cartridge and cut at 2 inches.
The small heart on top is a misc. stamp that I had.  Not sure who makes it.
The heart border at the bottom was made with the Fiskar Border Punch.

The card is an A2 card the paper is from the DCWV The Natural matstack.
The butterfly is a brad from Oriental Trader.
The butterflies trail is made with jewels and the I-Rock.
Both the ribbon on the bag and on the card is from The Dollar Store.
