Saw

ALL paper is from The Paper Company's Value packs.



As I'm sure you can tell this one was free handed all the way.  I measured out a piece of gray cardstock double the size that I wanted the saw and folded it in half.  I cut the jagged edge of the saw blade, through both layers, definitely free hand this one, it makes it look more real.  I cut the handle out, make sure you have a big enough edge on one side so it can connect into the blade.  I ran ATG tape on the inside edges of the saw blade, put the handle in, ran a little more ATG tape on top of the handle and closed it up.


I cut photo-mats so that they would fit inside the saw.  I used ribbon attached with a brad to add a grab tab to make then easier to pull out


I used eyelets, brads and ribbon to connect them all together and to connect them to the saw blade.


You need to use a good amount of ribbon so that they will fit nicely inside.

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 …
