Pepe Le Peu's Cousin makes it to the (3D) Eiffel Tower!

I have been wanting to try the 3D eiffel tower since I got Summer in Paris and I finally found the time to do it today! It's really easy to put together you just have to make sure you use really good adhesive. I stamped all over it with a swirl stamp to give a more metalish look and I embossed the black with D'vine Swirl. The whole thing was cut at 8 3/4 which is fit to page on the 12 x 12 mat. TFL!

Defender Mice Card!

I was reading a poem called Here's to the mice and I thought of this card! In this card the elephant was trying to eat the peanut and the mice came to the rescue and scared the elephant to leave the peanut alone.Hopefully you got all of that without me saying anything:) So I used Create a Critter for the mice, elephant, peanut, and platform. Then I handmade the ladder because I couldn't find any in my cartridges. The rest are Sticko Stickers. TFL!!

I used some of my favorite cartridges Sentimentals, Summer in Paris, and Create a Critter:) I used to love watching Pepe Le peu so when I saw this skunk I thought of him!TFL!

Tweet-Hearts Card

I just got the DCWV Flower Shower Stack yesterday and I love it! I don't know why I waited so long to get it. So for this card I paired it up with my favorite cartridge at the moment, Create a Critter!All of the cuts on here are from that Cartridge. I saw these birds when I was looking through the cart booklet and was wondering why they weren't paired together. So I took the liberty of putting them together in this card!TFL!

Little Piggie Birthday Scene Card

I am in LOVE with the Create a Critter Cartridge! I just got it today and the hardest part about it is choosing which thing to cut first! I saw this cart the very first day it came out and I even loved it then. Well, today I finally got this adorable cartridge after everyone has made such cute things with it! So I cut out a ton of cuts from the cart, I just love them all!TFL!:)

Camping Birthday Card

You know I have gotten into designing cards on my gypsy before I get the cartridges. And it's so awesome because once you get your cartridge you're not stumped on what to make since you already have something set up. So I got Summer Vacation and I love this tent because the only other tent on the carts was the Camp Out one and I am not terribly fond of that one. So I made my first card with Summer Vaction with that tent. I'm going to give this card to my grandpa for his birthday.TFL!

Frog playing in the water card

Yay! This was my first gypsy creation! And I adore that gypsy I don't know how I ever crafted without it! So here's the card I made right after I linked all of my carts to the gypsy. I got OUAP at the same time as the gypsy so I used them both in this card!TFL!

3D Medieval Castle

It's official I'm addicted to making these castles!! I made one for my cousins daughter and I knew my 6 year old nephew would want one. So I made him one so when he would come it would be done. He's so funny when I told him I made him one he said" Why didn't you wait for me so I could help you?" But I knew he would get bored because it is a bit tedious to make.TFL!!

An unusual pair of friends

I LOVE inking!! Since I got my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Ink Blending Tool I have been inking everything in sight! So this entire card was cut out in white and inked to make the different colors and layers. I just love the look of inking, it gives a smooth and soft look.

When I got Preserves I started looking through the booklet as I always do when I first get a cartridge and I ran into the watermelon. I thought it kind of looked like the bottom of a boat and this card came to life from that watermelon boat. I made it to cheer someone up and gave it to my friend who was really stressed out at the time.:)

Vintage Living Room Card

I designed this card before I actually got the Summer in Paris Cartridge on my Gypsy. So the moment I received I got my gypsy out and got to creating. I altered most of the A Child's Year Cuts by cutting off some pieces so it would work with the card.

Mother's Day Flowers and Vase

I made these Flowers for my Mom for Mother's Day. These flowers gave me so much trouble, they kept breaking and sticking together! I was this close to throwing them in the trash! But since it was for my Dear Mother I kept at it. Finally I finished 2 hours later with my hands full of ink and glue. But it was so worth it!

P.S- I used Flexible Straws as the Stems of the flowers. I just put some glue around the top and slipped it into the bottom piece of the flower. Since they are flexible you can twist to the way that fits best and cut them to be different lengths.
