Super Sweet Wedding Card!!!

Happy Tuesday!
Joann here today sharing a wedding card that I made using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge!
When this cartridge came out I fell in love with it. It has so many great cuts, which include tons of 3D items, boxes, labels, cards with envelopes, phrases and much more (check out the handbook here).  I cut the frame (pg. 60) and the phrase (pg. 61) from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.
I cut both images twice, once out of black and once out of a light grey cardstock to help add a little shadow. I also cut a few stripes of pattern paper to add to the left side of the card and a stripe of CTMH Cotton Candy cardstock to help add some color.
I finished my card by adding a heart flair from TCP Watercolor Hearts and some TCP Something Shiny sequins.
That is my card for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to stop by the shop to take a look and pick up some goodies!

Happy Mail

Hi there, today I am going to share something a little different with you. I would like to share my process for creating some PL cards for a swap at PLCS. The theme of the swap is Happy Mail and I knew that I had to use these fabulous Happy Mail flair badges from The Crafty Pickle Shop for my cards. I have to say that the font is super cute but the silver glittered words is what sold me. I hope you enjoy watching my process of creating these cards.

Flair is the perfect little embellishment to add to a cute bottle of bath soap or lotion. Our designer Kristin added our surprise flair with some die cuts for a cute little gift embellishment cluster. LOVE this idea. Couldn’t you see dressing up a bunch of bottles of antibacterial gel and passing them out at wedding or baby shower? LOVE this idea, Kristin! Stop on by Kristin’s blog right HERE.

Last but certainly not least is a great gift wrapping idea from our designer, Joann! She used her CTMH Cricut cartridge, Flair, and sequins to dress up this gift for a friend. My most favorite thing about this is that she took our Color Pop Flair and used stazon ink and STAMPED DIRECTLY ON THE FLAIR!! WHAT?!? How come I never thought of this before? Genius I tell you, Genius! It makes me look at our color pop flair in a whole new way. If I were to get a gift like this, It would be hard to open it because the outside looks so very pretty! Thanks so much for sharing this with us Joann! Check out our sweet Joann’s blog HERE.

Happy Card featuring Color Pop flair

Hi Carrie here to share with you today a fun Birthday card I created using some of my favorite flair embellishments from #TheCraftyPickle

The flair I used is from the Color Pop line from The Crafty Pickle.  There are nine different sets of Color Pop flair in a rainbow of colors.  These flair embellishments are the perfect embellishment for any layout, card or crafty project.  I just love how versatile they are. 

I started with a cut out banner card. I traced out the banner with a pencil then stamped HAPPY into each banner

Then I colored in each banner with my Spectrum Noir color pencils in a rainbow pattern. 

To Create my Balloon bouquet I used my Ranger circle blending tool and Distress ink The colors I used are spun sugar, spiced marmalade, tumbled glass, mustard seed and mowed lawn.

I added some twine to the back of my flair buttons with 3D foam squares. Then I clustered my flair in a Balloon Bouquet tied with a bow.  I think my card came out super cute.

Be sure to pop over the TheCraftyPickle shop and pick up some Color Pop flair for your next Crafty project.

Thanks for stopping by today.

My son loves rainbows and lots of fun colors so the Color Pop Flair is just perfect for any of the pages that I put together with just a little “Pop” of color!!!

On this page I wanted the flair to be show cased so I added my favorite circle punch to the back of each flair with black cardstock and then used black stamping with the CTMH Stamps and all the great color mixes of Sequins to this page …because both my boys “Color my World” for sure!!!

Happy Friday!
Joann here today sharing a layout with you that was inspired by this one!
I fell in love with this layout and I had the perfect picture of my little ones to recreate it but also make it my own! I used some watercolors to create by background and added a couple of paper strips to the sides to add a little something to this colorful layout. I used CTMH Art Philopsophy cartridge to cut all of my eggs out of white card stock and some pattern paper.
I watercolored some eggs and placed them where I thought they looked nice, glued them down and finished it off my adding my picture, the title, Spring Fling sequins, and Easter flair.
Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Remembering Dad

Remembering Dad

This Father’s Day will be particularly hard for me and my family this year. We lost our Dad in February to a traumatic accident.
My Dad was an awesome guy and the life of the party. We know that he wouldn’t want us to be sad on this day, so I decided
we would celebrate him on Father’s Day. Taniesa created some special flair for me so that I could use them to create cards for my
PL album. I have to say when I first saw them , I cried and I couldn’t believe how perfect and how special these were.

First I wanted to create a card using this My Favorite Memory of my Dad flair so I could document that memory of my Dad.

favorite

His grandchildren called him Superman, they seen him as a strong man who could get through anything, so I wanted to create
a card to honor our ” Superman” using a custom flair of a photo of my Dad.

super

Lastly I wanted to share a lovely gift that Taniesa sent to me for my family and me to wear on Father’s Day, how special is this ribbon and its something we could wear every Father’s Day!!

father

I love how special these custom flair are and how they will help us celebrate and remember my Dad on this Father’s Day.

Taniesa can create custom flair for you no matter the subject, just send her a message in The Crafty Pickle shop and let
her know what you are looking for.

Beautiful Butterfly Watercolor flair.

Good Morning Happy Scrappers. 

Today I am going to share with you a quick Birthday card I created using a beautiful watercolor Butterfly flair from #TheCraftyPickle Etsy shop

I love creating my own backgrounds using Adirondack alcohol inks 

First thing I did was to squirt two colors of the alcohol ink onto my splat mat and then add some blending solution. This helps to spread the ink around.  Then I just laid my glossy card stock right on top of the ink. 

I love the watercolor affect this technique creates.   

Once my card base was dry I stenciled some white clouds and then stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment by Technique Tuesday.

To complete my card I layered some pretty pattern papers onto my card base, added my beautiful Butterfly flair and tied some silver floss around the center. 

 

 Crafty Pickle flair is the perfect embellishment for beautiful greeting cards.  Be sure and stop by The Crafty Pickle Etsy shop

and grab some today. 

 

Happy Scrappin’
