CWC Blog-Aversary Blog Hop: Day 6

Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut's 2nd Blog-Aversary and our week long celebration! Each day for a whole week (May 19-26) we will be bringing you fabulous projects made by our Design Team members. We have some GREAT blog candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways -- so you will definitely want to make PCW-CWC your daily stop every day this week!

Our theme for Saurday (the final day of the hop) is...
And here is what I created! I have been making a lot of pretty girly cards recently so I wanted to make a masculine card this time.
Supplies used: Patterned Papers: Ki Memories; Cardstock: Bazzill; Twine: The Twinery; Star Pin: Little Yellow Bicycle; Stamps: {ippity} by Unity Stamp Co.; Misc: Button
The papers I used for this card are actually from my Halloween stash, but I love the lime green and I thought that these colors would be perfect for a masculine card. I am totally into using the negative space left over from my die cuts these days and I have done it again here.
The stars are cut from Craft Room Basics, the tag is from George and Basic Shapes and the Scalloped edge is from Just Because Cards
Here is a quick screen capture of how I cut out the stars on Cricut Craftroom. I made a rectangle the size I wanted it to be and then layered my stars on top and turned and sized them until I was happy with how they fit. Then I cut that whole bit out at once. I kept the stars to use on another project. Also in this screen shot are the tag and the border I used so you can see what they look like in CCR.

The star pin that I had was yellow and that just didn't go with the colors on my card so I used a Copic marker to color the star...it worked perfectly!

I used this {ippity} stamps set by Unity Stamp Co. for the sentiment on the card. This set is called How YOU Doin'

  9. Great card! Love how you used the copic to color your star pin. I have used them to color gems but hadn't thought of using them for other embellishments as well, thanks for the inspiration!

  10. Cute, cute, cute card. The screen shot helps to visualize how you set it up. I'm new to digital die cutting and figuring out how to arrange/size it perplexing. Thanks for sharing the delightful card!

  13. Great card!!!! I have a small stack of papers that have the negative space like this. I keep thinking I should use them. Lime green is one of my favs and looks fabulous with the paper you chose.
