2nd Butterfly for Jessica

Ok, here is the second butterfly off of the "Create a Critter" cartridge.  Once again I laid out the 3 colors on the mat that I would be using.  (All the paper is from The Paper Company's Fashion Colors value packs.  I'm not sure exactly which ones because I used some scraps I had to make this.)  Then I cut all 3 layers at 3 inches.  Again, make sure you do not have your real dial size button on or you layers won't line up.


The second picture shows all three cuts, sorry that they are a little hard to see!!
The third picture shows them all glued together!!  I used mono-adhesive and a Zig 2-way glue pen to glued the pieces together.  This is not one of the main cuts that is on the cartridge, it is actually an accessory to one of the main "Critters".  This was was really simple and very cute as well.  Also if you wanted to dress it up some you could put a little rhinestone sticker for an eye or use some stickles to bling it up!!

Again Jessica, thank you for the opportunity to answer your question!!

Happy Crafting!!!!

Danger ATC

This is an Artist Trading Card (ATC) that I created for the Diemond Dies' Design Team Call.  The background is a couple different mixed media techniques, mod podging tissue paper with lots of wrinkles in it and then stamping on top of it.  Then I used some Shimmerz Texturez to add even more texture and then some gray gesso is added in there too.

I used some corrugated cardboard to add some texture and then I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Banners Die and Bat & Skull dies for my embellishments.   On the bat I covered it with haematite Inka Gold, buffed it and then adhered it with 3-D Dots.  The skull I gessoed, colored it with my Faber Castell Big Brush Pens and then used some Shimmerz Texturez to put the "cracks" on it.
This is one of my favorite ATCs that I have ever made.  I hope you enjoyed it too!!

Dragon Cricut Cut

This is just a dragon cut that my son David asked me to "make" for him.  It is from the "Designer's Calendar" Cricut cartridge.  I used a piece of 6x6 red cardstock.  It was from The Paper Company's Heritage Color Sheets.  I selected the dragon to cut and then I selected the "fit to page" button on my Cricut Expression to get the biggest cut possible with the size paper that I was using.
*Note:  If you are making a cut using the "fit to page" button that has layers, make sure you note the size so you can set your size dial for the layers so they will fit properly.

Frisky Melon!!

 I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Challenge Me Monday Contest!!  Yay!!  I started with a piece of pink cardstock cut at 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" and folded it in half for the base of my card.  This was from one of The Paper Company's value packs.  Then I cut a piece of black cardstock, also from The Paper Company, at 5 1/4"x 4" and used it as my first layer.  I attached this using my ATG gun. For my second layer I cut a piece of paper from the Colorbok Pattern Pack at 5"x 3 3/4".  I then wrapped a piece of grosgrain ribbon around it and secured it in the back using regular tape.  Then I attached the whole thing using my ATG gun.   I cut the watermelon at 4" using the "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge with my Cricut Expression.  I used a black, pink and green paper, all were from The Paper Company value packs.  I attached it to the card using 3D-Dots. Then to finish off this card I added a My Pink Stamper stamp from …
