Here is my Linky Party project.....

I used a sentiment from the Hey Pumpkin set. It is perfect for Fall projects and Thanksgiving. I stamped on a label from my Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge. I dressed up the sentiment with some bling. The leaf paper is from DCWV Sweater Weather stack.

The adorable bear is from the Monthly Bears file at TCBJ. He is the November bear. I used some black pearls for his eyes, embossed the pumpkin with my Cuttlebug, and decorated the ground with some leaves,

And now for my projects.... I used the adorable turkey stamps and a sentiment from the Let's Get Stuffed set and made a feminine and a masculine version of a Fall themed card.

I decided to try my hand at making a rocker card. I've seen them on Pinterest and I just can't get over how easy they are! You just cut a circle and fold it in half! I used my Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge to cut the circles. To keep with a Fall theme I made wreaths out of autumn leaves. I love how these cards rock side to side. It's so cool!

 The papers are all from DCWV Fall themed stacks. The tags are cut with my Cricut Small Talk Frames & Tags cartridge. 

I used my Cuttlebug on half of the card to give it a bit of texture and embossed a few of the leaves. I heat embossed the sentiment with gold on the first card and added some bling. 

I had so much fun coloring these turkeys with my Spectrum Noir pens. I went over the turkey feathers with my Wink of Stella pen and it gave them just a perfect amount of shimmer. This is such an awesome Fall stamp set! You can even use this rocker template to do place cards for your Thanksgiving dinner table! Easy peasy!

I hope you liked my projects. Thanks for hopping by!

Happy 4th Birthday to the Exploring Cricut and More Blog!

Hey guys! This week we are celebrating Exploring Cricut and More's 4th Birthday!! Diane has asked me to share a birthday project and so I have a cute little puppy card. I used a TCBJ file called Cupcake Dog. Isn't she cute! 

This is a 5 inch rounded square card that I cut from my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I stepped out of my comfort zone using several different patterns. I wanted it to be happy and festive and hopefully not too busy.  The papers are from MME Hootenanny. I love this paper. I used a corrugated DCWV stack for the cupcake wrapper.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's Happy Celebrations. I added some polka dot ribbon and bling to the tag and cupcake. There is a shimmer on the hat that is a little hard to see where I used my Wink of Stella pen.

I hope you enjoyed my birthday card!  Make sure you head over to Exploring Cricut and More to see more fabulous projects! Also Diane is having a fun Birthday challenge where you can link up and win some fun prizes.

Happy Owl-oween!

Hello everyone! It's Tina from The Scrappin Rabbit Blog here today to share a Halloween card I made. 

I made a center step card and I used the Frightfully Cute stamp set for the owl and the sentiment.

This owl is super cute and I had such fun coloring her! There couldn't be a more perfect sentiment than Happy Owl-Oween! The papers are from a DCWV Halloween stack. The clouds are from my Cricut Zooballoo cartridge, the circle moon from my CTMH Artiste, and the branch is from Create A Critter 2. I used an EK Success punch for the trees and the bats are stickers from my stash.

Here's a closer look at the stamp set I used!
