This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "It's Hot Out There" - use hot, bright colours on your projects. It's also time to "Get Buggy" at Fantabulous Cricut. I decided to make some fun birthday cards which fit the criteria for both challenges! (It's not actually my design team week at Fantabulous Cricut but I decided to join in anyway!)
I used Paisley for the ladybird and bee and Mini Monograms for the scalloped square frames. I embossed the top layer of the frame with my Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder. I added some pearls and gems to insects as well and then popped the insects on the mats. I used a My Craft Spot "Happy Birthday" stamp from Inside and Out Set #2. I finished things off with the some absolutely fabulous, bold crinkle ribbon, using Caribbean and Hot Pink. I LOVE the new colours!!
If you haven't checked things out recently, be sure to look over all the amazing crinkle ribbon at My Craft Spot. There is sure to be something to suit your style! And if you are ribbon challenged (like me!), you'll find crinkle ribbon so easy to work with and very forgiving.
I invite you all to check out the other design team crafts and then link up your own "It's Hot Out There" projects at My Craft Spot this week. Also, please head over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out the design team creations and link up your buggy projects too!
PS Happy, happy birthday to my middle guy who is 14 today!! Also, we're leaving tomorrow for a camping holiday but I'll look forward to catching up with your blogs when I return.
Coming soon! Get ready for lots of fun with My Craft Spot during the week of August 22. The design team is busy working away on creating some fabulous projects using new stamp sets! You'll get to see them all during the release week, with a new stamp set released each day (Monday to Thursday). Plus, to end all the fun, Kimberly has organized a blog hop for Friday and the the entire team is taking part - with My Craft Spot prizes to be given away on EACH of the design team blogs!
