Memorydex Cards with Tim Holtz Stamping platform, Gorguss Girls and Cricut Explore Air 2!!


This is a loaded post!
I have recently received the Tim Holtz Stamping platform from Tonic Studios and I am sooo happy that I invested in this tool!! Following is a project share using this awesome platform, as well as my favorite collection of Stamps: Santoro London Gorguss Girls, and another favorite: Cricut Explore Air 2.
First, I must say that I am a latecomer to the Memorydex swaps, but having participated in ATC swaps, I knew I would enjoy this, and decided to join a group swap for fun! I am so glad that I did!!
All of the memorydex cards were made with Cricut, followinf Lorrie Nunemaker's free file. This made the project super easy to make! THANK YOU Lorrie!!




This one was my FAVORITE!! Can you tell??

I used Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio Distress inks on the mermaid's hair, followed by different colors of Prismacolor pencils to give it dimension. For shine, I added Sakura Clear Star pen, and Glossy Accents.
To make the Coral, I layered two pieces of cardstock. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress ink, and Ranger Embossing powders to make it look like real coral with shine!


I also added sequins to the Sand dollar. All of the dies here were cut with my Cricut Explore Air 2. The Stamps were distressed with the Cricut Distress tool for a weathered look.

 
For this teatime card, I used Cottage Cutz Cup of Love dies, as well as several other dies from my stash.


To make this flower cluster complete, I added a hear I made with plaster, painted in gold and pink, as well as tulle, and rolled flowers that I made from different pink papers. The centers each have a different type of pearl. The coffee "Foam" was embossed with Ranger Embossing powder.
For this card, I used Coffee dies from Spellbinders, and combined a banner stamp with coffee bean stamps. It was SUPER EASY with the TH platform!! Other dies and punches were from my stash also. The sentiment on the cups was made with Washi Tape :).
I colored the banner stamping with Ranger Distress and Oxide inks for a soft brown and pink look.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
