DT Introduction

Over at Just a Scrappin' I am being introduced today as one of there DT members.  This is going to be such a fun journey for my scrapping and card making.  I am one of the first members to be introduced.  So be sure to visit often to see what the other talented designers have in store for you.  Here are the two projects I sent in for my introduction.

I made these cards with Create a Critter;  one of my favorite cartridges;  they are an A6 card.
The monkeys are cut at 3.5 inches, the vine is 5.5 inches the "let's hang out" is cut at   1.25 inches
Added some ribbon, bling on the girl card and sentiment.  The paper is DCWV  one of the very first paper pads I got when I began paper crafting in 2004.

Made some stick pins.

I have been making stick pins to add to my cards.  I made 36 of them to send to a swap I was in with CDAC.  So I made a card using one of the other pins that I made.  So here it is.
This is an A2 card that I rounded off the corners.  The envelope is from Doodlecharm cartridge and cut at 2.80 inches.  I added the lips instead of a heart it is on a wiggle wire. The lips were cut at 1.75 inches from the India Art cartridge.  The tag for my sentiment is from the Essential Accent cartridge and cut at 1.75 inches.  I added a knot of tulle with a button and added a pin with a heart and some crystals.  My card has two sentiments on it.  One is Happy Valentine's Day and on the envelope and it says Sealed with a Kiss.  Both are from Pink Designs. For a bit of bling I added three rhinestones on the top.

I'm going to enter this card in

Carson's Creations.-- Stick pin
Love to Crop  --  Wiggle wire.
The Glamorous Side of Scrapping -- Valentine's Day
Paper Playtime -- Anything goes
Hope you like it.

Card for Love To Crop Challenge

Good Evening Crafters,

I have been busy yesterday and today working on cards.  I got 14 cards done.  I made this card to use in the Love To Crop challenge.  The challenge is to make a project using a wiggle wire.  What is a wiggle wire?  Amy did a great tutorial on how to made and use a wiggle wire.  I choice not to rob my ink pens but I made my own.  A few years ago my hubby both me a thing called a wild wire it roll your wire into springs.  It make all different types and sizes.  It work great for this. 

Here is my card:

It is an A2 card.  I took a piece of red card stock and cut it 3x5 and took several scraps and tore them and inked them and adhere to the red card stock.    I cut the heart from Doodlecharm Cartridge at 2.50 inches and layered it.  Added it on a  purple wiggle wire and stamped it with a stamp from Pink Designs.  Added some twine and a sticker that is a shaker.

Hope that you like it.  Still looking for 6 more followers.  I have some blog candy to give to one of my lucky followers when I hit 100 followers.  So send a buddy over.
