Campfire Fox

I created this card for Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  You were suppose to use either the "Campin Critters" cartridge or the "Nifty Fifties" cartridge, but if you don't have those, as I currently don't, they said you can use a similar cartridge.  So I decided to use the "Create a Critter" cartridge.
ALL paper for this card is from The Paper Company's value packs.
I started with a piece of brown 5 1/2x 8 1/2" cardstock and I folded it in half for the base of my card.  Then I cut a piece of blue card stock at 5 1/4"x 4" for my first layer on my card.  I cut a piece of green cardstock at 5 1/4"x 2" and attached it to the lower 2" of the blue cardstock using my ATG gun.  I took a piece of grosgrain ribbon and laid it across where the two colors met and secured it on the back using regular Scotch tape.  Then I secured the whole thing to the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I cut the fox at 3" from the "Create a Critter" cartridge and I cut the campfire at 2" from the same cartridge.  The little fire-pit under the campfire I created using 2 scalloped ovals from the "Storybook" cartridge.  I cut them both at 1 3/4" using the real dial size button on my Cricut Expression.  I took the darker one and, using a pair of scissors, I cut out the center and then used a Zig 2-way glue pen to secure it to the lighter color.  I attached the fox to the card using 3D-Dots and the campfire using my ATG gun.
I used stickles, Mermaid, Star Dust and Waterfall, to create stars in the night sky.  And finally I used a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Christmas Wishes" set with a Stampin' Up! Classic, Chocolate Chip, stamp pad for my sentiment.

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.
Happy Crafting!!!!

Altered Bird Cage

This is one really made me think outside the box.  I wanted to create a 3D item, and this is what I ended up coming up with.

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die to create this.  I cut the cage 4 times, the bird once and the wing twice out of medium weight chipboard.  Then I painted the 4 cages on both sides with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint from Tim Holtz and sprayed them with some Sunflower Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.
I glued the sides of the cages together with some Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and just held them until it was dry and just did that for all 4 sides.  Then I, very gently bent in the tops of the bird cages (I cut off the little bump that is on top of the hanging whole) and used the Scotch glue again to glue them together.  I also used some Tim Holtz jump rings to help hold the tops together until the glue was dry and holding.  Then I use another jump ring through the wholes on the top to hold them together and to attach the swivel clasp to.


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!!
Happy Crafting!!!!
