His & Her's

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! Aymee Gandy of 'A Scraphappy Southernbelle' here with you on this rainy day...well it is rainy here in PA. We have had rain all weekend and it has gotten a little chilly! Brrr! But, the rain provided the perfect excuse for me to stay in and work at my scrapbooking desk. I was able to create 2 cards during the rain that I would like to share with you today. I created cards for 'him' and for 'her.' I am always needing a mix of cards for both women and men in my card stash, so I am glad I got these finished.

First up, I have a masculine card. I thought I would give this to my husband one day for a 'just because' sort of thing. I like to leave cards around for him for no special reason. I sometimes sneak them in his lunchbox before he heads to work, in his truck, on his pillow before bed, etc. It's just a little something sweet I like to do to always remind him that I love him. He seems to enjoy it too. Tee hee!

"You're Out Of This World"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Core'dinations, The Paper Company
Patterned Paper: Studio Calico
Rhinestones: Michael's
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries)
Stamp: My Craft Spot
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridge Used: Birthday Cakes
Adhesive: Helmar, Beacon Adhesives

I found this cute robot and the gears on the Cricut Birthday Cake cartridge. I used my Gypsy to weld the shadow of each shape together to create a shaped card.
 I added rhinestones for dimension and a bit of glitter glue to a few of the gears. Also, I used pop dots to pop up the top layer of the robot just for that extra layering effect.
 I used a stamp from My Craft Spot for the inside of the card.
 After finishing  the card for 'him,' I got to work on a card for 'her.' I thought I might send this to my Dad so that he will have a card for my Mom sometime. I thought it would be a nice everyday card or for anniversary/Valentine's Day.

"Sweetheart, My Heart Belongs To You"

This shaped card is from the Wild Card cartridge. It is one of my favorite Cricut shapes!
 I wanted to mention too that this card is a scraplifted idea...sort of. LOL. I was on Pinterest the other day looking up pink/zebra print things. As many of you know, I have a daughter (a Yorkshire Terrier named Katie Scarlett) that I love to pamper. I am already planning her first birthday party and it will be in a pink/zebra print theme. I came across this awesome chocolate dipped strawberry. Doesn't this look yummy? I adore the colors, the patterns, everything!
 My strawberry is from the Create With Flourish Cricut cartridge.
 I added a twine bow and some rhinestones to the strawberry.
 I used crinkle ribbon to tie a bow on the edge. I then added a pin for a little extra detail.
 I popped up the strawberry using pop dots.
 For the inside, I added more patterned paper and stamps from My Craft Spot.
I hope you have enjoyed these 2 cards and that they will inspire you to create!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
