When Vintage Meets Shaker !! Tags with Cricut Explore Air 2 and items from my Stash

Ohhh Child!  Have you ever gotten so inspired by what you are making that you ask yourself, "Honey child!! Did you make that??" Well, I had that type of fun making these gorgeous tags!! It was truly a great project from beginning to end. For all of these tags, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2, and Design Space, as well as a combination of frilly and delicate dies from my stash.
This one was all about Vintage Charm, and thanks to my Cricut, and some tulle, I was able to easily make this into a shaker card with lots of delicate bits of glimmer and sequins.

Gorguss Girl Cards with Cricut, Watercolor, and Lots of Cuteness!

Hi all, Lately I have been more active on my youtube than on my blog, so it's time to update, and refresh these virtual pages. Following are some cards that I made using Santoro London Gorguss Girl stamps, Cricut Design Space, different dies from my stash, and lots of fun details.

I love to use different mediums to color my images.  I like to begin with watercolors, and then transition into Prismacolor pencils and Oxide inks. On this image, I also used paper piecing to add her little dress!
For a special touch I used stamps from Martha Stewart, and my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform to make a perfect coordinating envelope. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a beautiful vellum piece that has glitter bits here & there. The heart stitched die added the perfect touch. My Cricut Explore Air 2 also allowed me to Write and Cut the sentiment in a balloon shape. Perfect!
