Happy Hump Day :)

Hello there everyone! I just thought that I would pop in and post what I was up to yesterday.

I am in a swap where I have to make a Criss Cross card. One of my favorites, but I tend to sometimes get a little carried away and use too many embellishments and then I have trouble mailing them. This time I think I'll be ok. For those of you who don't know or have not tried a Criss Cross card you've got to check out the awesome tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here. It's another of Beate's tutorials and she's just so awesome she'll blow your hair back. If you've never been to her blog you need to run there NOW! Ok, back to the card....

For the base card I used Real Red. I then layered the left triangle with Wild Wasabi and white cs that I stamped the bamboo on from Hero Arts. The right triangle I layered a piece of Yuzen Washi paper from The Paper Palette. I colored the bamboo in with my SU! Watercolor crayons. For the belly band I just used a piece of gold cs and tied a length of black organdy ribbon around it. I layered a Real Red scallop circle and a 1 3/8" circle punch. I stamped the image from my TAC™ set Friendly Greetings. That was the SOTM and it's adorable.

Inside I stamped the coordinating word 'good luck' on white paper that I layered onto gold cs. For the "pull tab" part at the top I stamped one of the images hats and cut it out - I thought it was kinda cute. The card really did not take too long to make, and like I said before the Criss Cross cards are fun!

Here's another card I made yesterday. I really don't have any idea why I made it, but I have it in case I need one.....

For the base card I used Chocolate Chip paper. I layered it with a piece of DP from theangelcompany™ Rustic Chic collection. That's another fun pad of paper. I've found that it coordinates with everything.

I stamped the little chick from Hey Chick collection, colored it with pencils and punched it out with my 1 3/8" circle punch. I then took out my Circle Sampler collection and stamped a circle and punched it out with my scallop circle punch. Once I had that adhered together I had no idea what to do with it!! So I sat and thought for a minute and decided to cut a hole right thru the front of the card. I pulled out my coluzzle and cut a circle just a little bigger than the scallop punch. I then adhered the image inside the card.

Still sitting there not knowing what to do next - I thought I'd stamp the words "hey Chick" from the set and use my word window punch to punch it out. Then what!?! I took my round tab punch and punched out a piece of Chocolate Chip cs and layered the word window punch on top of it. Still looking plain, I added a piece of brown ribbon under it, flipped up the ends to make hoops on each side and added brads thru it.

For such a simple card it gave me trouble. Sometimes simple is not easy....

I'm not the type of person to push anything on anyone ~ but I just want to remind everyone that we are in the final day of the "double rewards" benefits that theangelcompany™ company is offering. I know that I'd like to know of any cool specials or deals that someone is having. Actually, it does not take too much to enable me :)

I also would like you to know that I will always list to the left of my blog the specials and deals that theangelcompany™ is always having. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me, I'm always here.

Well everyone, have a super great day! And happy crafting.
