THANKS

Better late than never, right?
This is a card I just sent out to Cut Cardstock owner Cindy. I hope she knows how grateful I am for all her generosity while doing my term for her Cut Cardstock Design Team.

Thanks
A bit of info about the card:
But, I can't remember the size, hehe. Mind is truly gone. I do know I used Curious Metallic for the flowers and leaves: Super Gold, Violette, Mandarin and Botanic. Super pretty and thick cardstock. The flowers and leaves were cut using a Sizzix Thinlit die from Jen Long (660367) and the sentiment (thanks) is from Paper Smooches (J2D056). I used the 130# Classic Crest Recycled for the card base.
In case you like the patterned paper used: Memorandum from Pink Paisley.

I love it and I hope I can express my gratitude with this lovely handmade with love card.
I also hope you like it too and inspire you maybe for a Mother's Day Card.
Talking about Mother's Day I wish you have a perfect day with your loved ones.

Thanks for stopping by.

From Paper Smooches!

I had entered a Paper Smooches giveaway (you know how much I like their dies because all they need is one pass through your manual die cutter, and I just love that plus their prices are so very affordable) and I won. Yay for me!!

It indeed brightens my day. Kim is so sweet and she kept in touch. She even emailed me from her honeymoon to apologize for a bit of delay in shipping. Who does that anymore? and from her honeymoon, WOW! this kind of gestures is what really shows what we are made of, right? I was truly appreciative and I have to give high kuddos to this girl.
Thank you, Miss Kim, you are such a sweetheart!!!

Anyways, here is what I picked because I love their font and this way I have all the letters handy for my projects.

Well, I can't wait to start blogging for good again. 
I have a procedure scheduled for May 9th and it will be the beginning of a few more but I am still around and still loving paper. So...counting on God who has kept me sane and strong while on this journey, I will be back. 

Hang in there my friends and Thank you so very much to all who have kept in touch. 
I love you all.

Bunny Banner

Hello guys, 
Long time no see you.
I know some of you have been with me for a long time and you might be wondering what's going on with me. Well, I don't want to get into many details here online but I can say we are dealing with some serious health issues, and sincerely, it has been a lot and no time or mind to come around. I will try to keep up with my blog and sharing some things as long as I can and whoever wants to keep in touch can email me. 

 Anyway, I made this bunny banner just to play a bit and to not loose the mojo that's left, lol.

Bunny Banner
4" x 5-3/4"
each pennant
 I used Pretty Pennants for the base and cut twice: one in pink and one in light turquoise color cardstock. The top layer was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder called "Textile", the bunny and the basket are from Stretch your Imagination and the mini flowers are from an Impression Obsession die.

 
 I also should mention some parts of the pennant were "contoured" on Design Space.
I stamped some texture on the baskets, very lightly and chalked some areas for definition.


The pink walls are the new color of my craftroom. It is really pretty in real life but for some reason, it looks this bright.
Below is a better pic.
This is the real color. It is a Valspar color called Rose Buff, in case you like it.
Maybe after I finish re-organizing my room, I take pics to share. It will take some time because of everything going on right now.

Stay safe and well and thanks for stopping by.

WEDDING "BOWS"

Welcome to the Cut Cardstock blog! 
Today is about weddings and I have made a super simple square box with a scalloped edge lid, a few rectangles to use them as cards/tags to display the bow pins and a few rosettes just for decoration.

I chose the Classic Linen cardstock as my main cardstock. I like the texture and I like its weight. It was perfect to hold and display the small guests "mementos".
I also chose the lovely Gold Glitter cardstock to complement the Linen cardstock. 

The box and lid are from a Cricut cartridge called "Sweet Tooth Boxes". I cut the box at 4 inches and it is a square box.
The heart border is from Ribbons and Rosettes. The hearts are super tiny but cut amazingly well on the Gold Glitter cardstock.  I used the double-sided score tape to assemble the box and lid.


The bows are from a digital shop but Cricut has many to choose from. 
I added a thin rectangular gold strip around the heart cards to continue the gold and white color combination.
I used a glue gun to attach the pin to the back of the bows and a piece of square foam tab to adhere it to the card, as seen below. 
A small white pearl was then added to the center.

A few more pics of how this small ensemble is coming together.

The rosettes were made with one-inch strips of the Classic Linen cardstock and scored at every 1/4 of an inch. 
A gold heart was added to the center.
All Done!
A Svery pretty and simple ensemble for any event, in this case, a wedding. 

Hope this project helps as an inspiration to you all.

Take care!
and a huge thank you for all your love and likes.

Enjoy the new team!

I AM NOT WEIRD...

This quote makes me laugh and I wanted to have it around the house. I chose to work with the 130# Classic Crest Recycled cover cardstock because its thickness, great for a sturdy base, the burgundy 80# Royal Sundance Linen cardstock  (the color is a beautiful dark red wine) and the 54# Gold Glitter to add some sparkle to this so cute quote.

The size is a 8 x 10. I cut the base first, then some thin frames to mount around the base.  I used score-tape to attach them to the base and then cut the words using my die cutter machine but...I first cut them on scrap paper, to use the negative as my positioning tool. After I made sure it was properly centered, I proceeded to add the letters to the base.  

Then I thought it needed some "bling" so, I got my beloved Gold Glitter cardstock, die cut another thin frame and heart and I was very pleased with this add-on. I also die cut an easel from the Classic Crest cardstock because I wanted to place it on a flat surface instead of on the wall.

Cute, huh? plus it puts a smile on anyone's face.
Hope you are grinning too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
