Wishing you Joy! card made using the NEW Cricut Twinkle Toes cartridge!

Hello, everyone!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I cannot believe that we are less than a month away from Christmas! It always seems to sneak up on me. I am very excited the holidays are here though. Spending time with my family during the holidays is always one of my favorite things! Also, I just love seeing all the beautiful lights and listening to Christmas music. It is just pure magic!

Today I have a card that I made using the NEW Twinkle Toes cartridge.This cartridge has tons of fun frames! I just love using frames on my cards because I consider myself a stamper and cutting out frames allows me to really stamp. Stretching my stamping muscle is always a great thing for me. I am not sure what it is about stamping, but it is so much fun!

The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The ribbon is from SU!
This stamp set is from Papertrey Ink. the funny thing is I did not even mean to purchase this one, but I am so glad I did.
I cut the tag at 3 1/4". Then I cut the smallest oval layer at 3" so I could add one more layer.
Thanks for dropping in to see us today. Make sure you check back in tomorrow to see what Joy has made. She always makes the most beautiful things!!

Have a fantastic week!!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

Stephanie said...

Love this card!! I have a question as to how you did the ribbon. Is it one piece or did you wrap the ribbon around from top to bottom and the bow is a seperate piece? I love that all of your ribbons and bows are so perfect!! I can't seem to master them for my creations.
Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Stephanie

Here again Melanie I love this frame but unless I was making a large scrapbook page, I would probably use my spellbinder die which is just like this on only embossed. The embossing just adds so much to these beautiful cuts.
Love your card. This one is so beautiful with that polka dot paper and pretty stamp.
