Carried Away 2

This card was created using the Summer In Paris cartridge and cutting the hot air balloon in 4 different colors, at 4".   I pop dotted each layer on the sides and glued the centers together so that it would appear more 3D.   I added some string to the basket as well.   The paper is from American Crafts.   Embossing folder was the swirls.   The ribbon was from the Target dollar bin and the sentiment from Fiskars.

Down for the Count

My son is on the youth wrestling team so, I thought this would be fitting for a coach or for him next season.   I used the Sports Mania cartridge for this one.   I cut the 'Down for the Count' phrase at 3 3/4" and then the wrestlers at 2 1/2", with the layers. 

The mat paper is from American Crafts Travel collection and the inside sentiment is from Studio G.

Baby Elephant

I have a baby card today that I made for a friend.   I used the GBC Chic Baby stack and then cut the Elephant using Celebrate the Occasion, the elephant with the party hat, cut at 2 1/2" and then the hat trimmed off.  I used My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Breeze paper for the elephant.  I stamped a Studio G sentiment on the elephant.   The little piece of crocheted ribbon is from Darice.

Dino-Mite Birthday

This card is a very simple one.   The volcano was cut by hand, along with the melting lava.   The grass was a negative cut from a different card and the dino is a layered die cut sticker from K & Co.
The stamped sentiment is from Scrappy Moms 'Amusing Animals' set.

Birthday Fairy

A sweet little fairy for a sweet little one year old.  The fairy is cut from the A Child's Year cartridge, the Tooth fairy Shift cut, at 3 1/4".   I used some pink Stickles on the gift box and then some Blossom twine from The Twinery, tied in a knot and then cut on both ends to poof it out.  The printed papers are both from K&Co, Itsy Bitsy Baby Girl collection. 
The frame behind the fairy is also from the same Tooth fairy cut but, it's the Card Function, shift, at 3 3/4" in solid grey.   The sentiment is a cartouche punch from EK Success that I cut a couple times in different colors and then added them to the back of the cartouche to help frame it.   The stamp is from Studio G and the twice is the same Blossom. 
The inside is another piece of the EK Success punched cartouche that is framing a stamped sentiment from Studio G.

Cheer Sign

My daughter walked in a local parade for cheer leading so, I made her this sign using the Team Spirit cartridge for the megaphone.   I cut it, with all the layers, at 11" USING a 24x12 mat.   Then I cut the letters from Varsity Letter.

Sailing Congrats

Some of the larger 12x12 papers have such great designs that you really couldn't appreciate if you cut down.   The paper on this card is from the DCWV Nantucket stack with a mounted sentiment added onto the front and the inside.
