365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#178 Tent Card and I'm a Guest Designer!!!

(Front of Card)
Hi everyone!!! I am so super excited to be a Guest Designer today for the wonderful talented Erika from Crafty Sprouts (formerly Cricut Love). In case you haven't seen her new blog changes be sure to check it out HERE she has a brand new blog design and a fabulous new blog name I love all the new changes!!!

Erika wanted her Guest Designers to make a tent card, and of course I had to say yes!! I was totally up for this challenge especially since I never made one before, I was so happy to think outside the box!  I did a search for "Tent Cards" and stumbled across this fabulous blog post from Magnolia stamps HERE and they had a step by step tutorial which was very easy to follow!

(Side View)
I just love how this card folds completely flat and measures 6x6 inches then, when you see the side you see how cool it is that it stands up on its own!

Here's another view of how I assembled the top, I colored this stamp called Sasha from TGFS called Creepin Crew, I actually stamped her on tan cardstock and colored her with Bic markers and added Stickles to her bracelet and boots. I also added a bow, and the silver ring you see her actually makes her dangle. I got the rings in a large package from Michael's jewelry section for about $2..... I felt like I was cheating on the Scrapbooking section LOL!

Here's another shot I just had to show you! Its a closeup of my famous tiny paper roses, yes they are so freaking tiny and take about 10 minutes to make but I love them! I used a 1 inch 6 petal flower punch to create these. The sentiment is Scrappy Moms stamps, and the oval shape and scallop oval are from the Storybook cart. 

Ok so I know this card looks intimidating but it was extremely easy!!! If you would like to join in the fun and create a Tent card you can enter the challenge at  Crafty Sprouts Blog !!! 

The sponsor for this challenge is PKS (wide eyed kids face assortment) also everyone that enters in the challenges until August 26 will be entered to win a Scrap N Easel! Erika is giving away a $10 Gift certificate to Market Street stamps for everyone that comments on Erika's blog and the Guest designers blogs this week!

These are so amazing prizes up for grabs and all you have to do is enter the Tent Card challenge HERE!!

Thank you so much Erika for letting me create something completely different and for getting me out of my card rut LOL! Love these tent cards!!!
