Springtime Koala

Are you ready for spring?  How about a project that has some flowers and bright colors to help until all of the cold and snow are gone?

Shawn has created a cute little card with a koala and flowers on it that is sure to brighten up your day.


The koala for this card was cut from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge.  To see the full project information you can go to Shawn’s blog by clicking HERE.


Male Birthday Card

Welcome to Sentimental Saturday with Brenda from Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker. Today I have a male birthday card to share.


This is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ card. All cardstock used is Recollections. The black layer on the front is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8″ and the blue layer is 5 1/4 x 4″. I used the Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge to cut the motorcycle at 3″, the large clouds at 2″ , the small cloud at 1 3/4″ and the road at 5″ wide. The grass behind the motorcycle was cut at 5″ wide using the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art Cricut cartridge.  The blue layers and all cuts were inked using the CTMH Grey Wool Exclusive Ink pad. I also added yellow buttons (3 Birds Cute As A Button kit) to the center of the tires. The sentiment is from the CTMH Card Chatter – Birthday stamp set, and was stamped using CTMH Archival Black Exclusive Ink pad.

Thanks for stopping by!
