Everything's Coming Up Daisies

This next challenge at Bitten by the Bug2 is to use a daisy - or any flower - on a project. Love this challenge especially during a cold January! 

I used the following images (and most of them on the intricate card stock setting):
Stamping: Daisy Chain
Flower Shoppe: 3-D Flowers
Free SVGs: Sun and grass-clipart-2 from the internet
Free Font: Antebellum

This was a free font with a commercial license. But if someone can explain to me why my font had solid letters and turned to an outline after ungrouping, welding, and attaching, I'd love to figure this out for next time. Here's the difference:

This was my first time printing and cutting on a shape. Now I am ready to do more attaching in Design Space.

Snow Challenge

We're hosting a snow challenge at Bitten by the Bug2, so pour yourself some hot cocoa and turn on your cricut machine. For this project, I used images for the following cartridges:

Winter Frolic: Snowflake, North Pole and Snowman (M38124)
When its Cold Outside: Snowman "There is Snowman Like You" (M38BD5)

For the tiny title, I used the intricate cardstock setting for most of the cuts, especially for the tiny title -- I am surprised that it cut so well. For the glitter paper, the glittered card stock setting. The paper still tore, but I blame the soft paper not the cricut machine. I also used a new glue (to me) for the tiny cuts -- On Point Glue from Joanns Stores. The tiny nozzle worked nice - But I hope that it doesn't become clogged like other brands have. 

This is a cute card for Valentines Day or a just thinking about you.

Coffee and Roses Card

I made this card with a Digi Stamp by STAMPlorations (Designed by Shery Russ): found at this page. I used 
Stampin' Blends Marker alcohol inks for the coloring and a brown spray mist for that old look. I also added stickles, and I liked the coffee bean texture that it gave the card. Here's a few more, in different color schemes, with different Stamping' Up! sentiments:

I also followed the sketch Challenge #321by the Paper Craft Crew - a fun challenge.
