Wild Card Video Series #7 All In One Card

Today was my son's first day of school and as a tradition I take the day off of work. I got the whole house to myself! I got 3 Wild Card videos done and I hope to get one more done tonight after Ethan goes to bed. Here is # 7....All In One card.
I have to apologize now for the amount of times in the next three videos that I go out of the screen. I changed the location of my camera, which I hope will help.

Here's the video: OK so taping 3 videos in 1 day is not a good idea. This was the third one for the day and of course I messed up one of the measurements. Instead of saying 3/4 in I said 3 1/4 in. Sorry

Someone mentioned a few weeks ago that I should do all 50 of the WildCard Cricut cards. So I thought why not. I really love the cartridge and I may as well give it a try. Below you will find links to the other 3 I've already done. Today's video makes this Episode #4 in my series. Only 46 more to go. LOL

and here is your video for today

Cricut Wild Card-Video

Good evening,
Here's a quick video on the pumpkin card from Cricut's Wild Card cartridge. I cut this card on the blackout feature because I wasn't too excited about the face on the pumpkin.


Happy Crafting!

Another Winter Woodland House

I can't stop making these, they are just so cute. The Winter Woodland cartridge is the best. The 3D houses are just so darling and come in 6 different sizes. There are also 3D trees and a 3D snowman. Someone had asked where I got the cartridge, I called ACmoore...they are not on the shelves yet (at least not at my store), but they have them in back. YEAH!!

For this one I took the time to dress it up. I used white embossing powder on the black cardstock so it looks like snow had fallen. I still want to add some transparency paper to the windows and someone had mentioned adding one of those little battery operated candles inside. Wouldn't that be so sweet.

and these trees are just darling too. I added some of Stampin' Up's dazzling diamonds glitter to these. I may still add some to the snow on the roof. Sorry the picture of this is not the best. I didn't notice that my husband had changed the settings on the camera.

Cricut Winter Wonderland

Look at this. I mean come on, this is so stinkin' cute. I just got the Winter Woodland cartridge today and I think it's my new favorite cart. OK they are all my favorite carts.

This was so much fun to make. I went simple as far as cardstock is concerned, because it's my first time putting one together. I see many many more in my future. Oh yes and a video too.

A couple of weeks ago I made the house card from the Wild Card cartridge and loved that as well. Check it out here. I think the card and this house in different sizes would make great Christmas gifts. Don't you?

Happy Crafting!

I've been having so much fun playing with my new stuff.

I love this card. OK I know I say that about every card (LOL). I've been sewing on my cards and can actually almost sew a straight line.

I used "A Child's Year" Cricut Cartridge to cut out this little girl. I was having a hard time figuring out how to use pattern paper with this cartridge, but if you use a paper that doesn't have a lot going on, it looks so much better. The base of the card is made with Stampin' Up! Whisper white cardstock and the light blue cardstock is from Bazzil. The pattern paper is from my favorite collection by Daisy Bucket. I used Making Memories 5th avenue ribbon, the new tag punch from Stampin' Up! with the word window punch. "Celebrate" is from Paper Trey Ink, little lady stamp set.

Happy Crafting! Christina
