Baby Boy Bingo Card

It is all about bingo cards for our design team post at The Cutting Cafe today!  There are many bingo card printable stamps sets to choose from but I decided to create my own using the Blank Bingo Card Printable Stamp Set and the Boy Hershey Kiss Bottom Printable Stamp Set.

I added a cute turtle chipboard embellishment and several of the kiss bottoms to make an adorable card!  I love the brown/blue/green color combo.  Here is a front view and the inside…

Pinwheel Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project and Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice

Pinwheel Card - The Cutting Cafe and Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice

Pinwheel Flower Scene Card

Hello All!  It is time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe, but I am also starting my first collaboration with Poetspice on YouTube.  So, this project is also my first for the Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice, which we are to make projects using our embossing folders and punches!  I am excited to be a part of it.  There are several ladies in the collab and I will give you their YouTube Channels below.

For The Cutting Cafe Files, I used the Pinwheel Sentiment Set and then I added the grass using the Garden Stand Ups file.    I then used multiple punches and a couple embossing folders to complete the card.  I love the way it turned out!  For now, I have not added a sentiment as I am not sure what it will be used for.  But it can be for Mother’s Day, Friendship, Birthday, or even just because.

Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month.  Leave a comment and you will be eligible to win three free files of your choice.

My Craft Space – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

21 Apr

We are doing something a bit different for our Design Team post for The Cutting Cafe.  We are sharing a look at our crafting spaces today.  Although my room is a total hot mess right now, I found a picture of it cleaned up.  Here is what I see when I walk in.

Craft Room

A little over a year and a half ago, I cleaned up and rearranged my room.  It is still set up that way and I did a craft room reveal on YouTube.  Since my room is too much of a mess to show right now, I will share that video, which also features two of my DT members and very good friends who were visiting for a crafty weekend.

But before I share the video, just a couple of things.  Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see the craft rooms of some of our DT members (and I am sure you will see Regina’s fabulous room – she is the owner of The Cutting Cafe and her room was featured in HGTV magazines and a couple of others).  We do post on the 7th and 21st of each month.  When you visit, leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice.

Thanks for stopping by!  Now, here’s that video…

Man Card Mondays #9 and The CC DT Project Bat and Ball Cards

Bat and Ball Cards

This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project.  Baseball season just started so I decided to use that theme as this was a free week and we could choose any file we wanted to.

I chose to use the Bat and Ball Shaped Card Set  and made two different cards.

Man Card Mondays #8 - Pop Out Book Vintage Birthday Card

Pop Out Book Vintage Birthday Card

Woot Woot!  I am on the eighth week of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays!  I hope that you have found some inspiration to help you with cards for the men in your life!  Today’s card looks pretty simple from the outside.  But when the recipient opens it up, bam…

Pop Out Book Vintage Birthday Card Inside

Inside

There is a pop out book insert.  You can use any theme you want.  I chose to go with a vintage feel and used numbers and words for the pattern and sentiments.  I also added some little black corner stickers and metal numbers.

You could also use wooden embellishments to keep it vintage or maybe brighten it up with metal pieces.  I also matted the back…

Masculine Cross Shaped Card

This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project to create this Easter Card.  I used three files from The Cutting Cafe:

The Cross Shaped Card Set, the Believe Shaped Word Card, and Easter Mini Words Printable Stamps.

I used shades of rust and the pop of color is red.  I whipped out an old paper pad to find the rugged wood paper for the cross overlay.  The inside is plane for now until I decide who will received the card.

Man Card Mondays Episode 6 – St. Patrick’s Day

Man Card Mondays Episode 6 - St. Patrick's Day

For my sixth episode of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays, I decided to tackle St. Patrick’s Day since that is coming up on Friday.  This card can be for any man in your life depending on the sentiment you add to the inside which looks like this…

Man Card Mondays Episode 6 - St. Patrick's Day Card Inside

I just double matted the inside. I plan to add a cream or light green mat with sentiment on the right side.

I thought the Beers to you was clever and you have a ton of choices to use for the inside sentiment.  I give several in my video, which can be viewed below, but a couple of examples are:  and the luck of the Irish too or I am lucky to have you in my life.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy St. Patrick’s  Day early, and take a peek at my video before you go!
