Time to Snail-abrate Easel Card

Hello friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! 
Today I have an easel card to share.

I used the card base from my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and the snail is from Create A Critter. I cut a scalloped circle and embossed it with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The papers are from DCWV. The adorable snail border is from the Walk In My Garden cartridge. I changed the flower on the snail to turn it into a shaker. Isn't she cute?! 

The adorable ribbon is from my stash and I added buttons and twine to the snail border. And finally I added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen. The fun sentiment is from the Craftin Desert Diva's  Lil Bit Buggie stamp set. 

There are some wonderful sentiments in this set!
 You can see this and much more at the CDD shop HERE.

Snail Mail Note Card Set

Hello my crafty friends! Are you ready for Spring? I know in some parts of the country it is still winter but here in So.California the weather is warm and we even got a few showers this week. The hills behind my house are green, the flowers are all blooming and it makes me feel like Spring is in the air.

 Today I have a note card gift set to share...

I used my Cricut Imagine More Cards cartridge to print and cut all the images and papers on the note cards and tag. I welded the stamp shape to make 4.25" square cards that will fit in an A2 envelope. The sentiment on the card is from the Craftin Desert Diva's Lil Bit Buggie stamp set. This sentiment goes perfectly with the postage stamped papers. The To and From stamps on the tag are from the CDD Tag It stamp set.

I added a prima flower and a butterfly and decorated them with pearls. The box is from the Cricut Tags. Bags. Boxes and More cartridge. I added a crinkle ribbon that I won from Karen at the Little Scrap Pieces blog. I used papers from the DCWV Old World stack. 

Here are some close ups of the sentiments and the two Craftin Desert Diva's stamp sets I used.

 This is my favorite set of this release (although I do love them all). I colored him 

with my Spectrum  Noir  pens. I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge and the Elegant

 Edges for the card base and banner. The voice bubble is from Create A Critter.

I added some sparkle to the belly and tail using my Wink of Stella pen. Here is the 

sentiment close up. The "Hi" is from the CDD Say It Big set.

For my second card I colored the adorable little fox. I stamped this sentiment from 

the CDD Sending Love set on the hearts.

I embossed the tree from the Cricut Sweethearts cartridge and cut

 the tree down to fit the card base. This will be another love

note for my hubby.

I have a couple projects for you today. First I made a set of Chocolate Bunny cards. The bunny is from Miss Kate Cuttables. I thought this sentiment was perfect for these adorable bunnies with the bitten ears.

The tag is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. Here is a close up of the sentiment:

For my second project I made a card for my hubby. I'm going to stick it in his briefcase as a surprise.

I just had to use the glasses for this sentiment. My whole family wears them and I immediately thought of this cute SVG from Too Cute By Jessica called Hipster Animals.

The cute paper is Prima's All About Me. I added glossy accents and then pearls to one of the glasses. I also used the envelope stamp from the CDD Sending Love stamp set. Here is a close up of the sentiment:

And look how cute today's free pattern is!!!!

Now on to my projects. I have a couple things to share today.

First I made a shaker note card set and a matching box.  It is very similar to Valentine's card I made but changed it up a bit for everyday. I used the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge for the circle cut out. The scallop box is from the Box It Up Cartridge. I used the bees from the Sending Love stamp set. The ribbon is from American Crafts. I added some Wink Of Stella over the scallop frame to add some sparkle.

I used a sentiment from the CDD Just Pigcause set. I taped off the pig and added the bee. I love that little bee!!! The tag is from the Tag It set and I used the SVG that comes with it.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.

My next card is a simple masculine birthday card. I struggle with masculine designs and I'm working on getting some cards for guys in my stash that are not cutesy.

Here is a close up of the sentiment and it is from the CDD Say It Big stamp set.

Here are the stamp sets I used
