To a crazy chickie

Hello! Today we are showcasing the Die Of The Month again at MyCreativeTime. I used a die cut from the Fun Speech Bubbles set to stamp my greeting on. I used the new To A Cute Little Chickie set for the "to a chickie" part of my greeting. I made the word "crazy" with the Alpha Pack set. I used my Cricut Explore to cut out THIS chick. I used the Chickie Face Assortment from PeachyKeenStamps for the face. OH, and I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies for the card, and the Stitched Grass Die

MCT Made in Minutes

Hello! It's Made In Minutes Monday at MyCreativeTime. For my super quick and simple card I used the Uppercase Fun Dies for my shaker. The "for being so sweet" is from the So Grateful For You set. I filled the shaker with shades of purple sequins, and mounted the panel on a purple card base.

MCT 40th Edition Release Blog Hop!

Hello! You should have arrived from Lucia's blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my cards today I have used the adorable new You Had Me At Meow set. KITTIES! Yay!!! :) Did you know I love kitties???? Well, I do! Anyhoo...for this first card I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the card base and shaker layer. 
I used the Stitched Sweethearts and XOXO dies for the shaker window. I paper pieced the kitty from the You Had Me At Meow set. I also gave her a collar from the set. I used the coordinating dies that come with the set to cut her out. The greeting that I love so much is also from the same set. 
For this card I used the Uppercase Fun Dies to partially die cut MEW. I used the kitty die from the You Had Me At Meow to replace the O, although "mew" is also a kitty noise. ;) I colored the kitty to look like my guy Simba using my Prismacolor colored pencils. 
I used the You Had Me At Meow for the birthday greeting as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE this new set. Oh, and I gave kitty the other collar option in the stamp set. A fishy collar. Cute! :)

MCT Sneaks Day 3

Hello! It's day 3 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime! Today we are sneaking a new die set called Hello Frame Dies. I've used the die in a very simple way, but I really like the look. I used vellum to soften the patterned paper behind the die cut. 
I've also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies for the card base and layer.

Sequin Seahorse

Hello! I am in absolute LOVE with the brand new Cricut Design Space App for iPad! It's awesome and FREE! Yay! It is beyond simple to use as well. For my first card made using the Cricut Design Space App, I bought this pretty seahorse image from the Anna Griffin Summer Soirees cartridge. OH and buying that image from my iPad was incredibly simple! Anyhoo, I attached the seahorse image to a rectangle so I could use the negative space. And they my favorite part, gluing the sequins. 
As usual, I used glossy accents to glue down the sequins. Eek! I love this pretty seahorse. And I seriously super love the new Cricut Design Space App! So fire up your iPad and head to the App Store. :)

I'm really excited to watch the launch of the new Cricut Explore Air machine on HSN tonight at Midnight Eastern. {9 Pacific time} A lot of folks are having a cow about Cricut releasing another new machine...but there's no need to birth bovines! ;) The improvement on the Cricut Explore Air is built in wireless capabilities. So, if you've already got the original Cricut Explore machine, you just need to snag yourself a blue tooth adapter. Easy peasy. 

♥ Nikki ♥

p.s. Also. the new App sorta reminds me of having a Gypsy. Except it's about a bajillion times awesomererer. :)

Lawnscaping Challenge Birthday Celebration

Today is a special day! It's Lawnscaping Challenge's 100th challenge if you can believe it! I have been invited as a special party guest by Design Team member Samantha Casey. Be sure to head on over to the Lawnscaping Blog where you can see ALL of the Design Team projects as well as ALL of our special party guest projects.... Thanks soooo much Samantha for the invite to join you! Yay! :)
The challenge is to create a birthday project. This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn, and the winner will receive a stamp set of their choice! Yay! Here's my card...
I used the adorable Critters Down Under set for my Koala and trees. I stamped him and then colored with my Prismacolor colored pencils. 
I gave him a hat from the Monster Mash set, and used the Into The Woods set for the clouds on the background scene. I used the Claire's ABC's set to make the greeting that is continued on the inside of the card....
Get it? Koalas eat eucalyptus. YOUcalyptus. I crack me up. :) 

Pop over to the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog to see lots of awesome creations, and to play along! You can't win if you don't play! :) Have fun.
