If you've never used the WOW Embossing Powder there's a great You Tube Video video from CHA that explains everything on the How To's. It's super easy and a lot of fun. On my BINGO card I used the powder on the card itself, and on the numbers.
The other items I used were Graphic 45 Paper and Rich Coco Memento Ink to do some distressing around the white paper. Everything that has a link to it, except the You Tube Video from CHA, can be found at Cutter's creek Store. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Hope you enjoy my post!

This week I decided to make a Father's Day Card since it is about 1 month away. First I started with a white card base and with brown cardstock I embossed using Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades-Harlequin- ask Kim she may be able to order if not in the store. Here is what it looks like after I embossed it.
We R Memory Keepers twine- yellow, around the brown cardstock before taping it down to the white cardstock. Then I cut out some strips of card stock I had in my stash in two different color plaids. For the center I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two, cut it out in white card stock and with a stamp I had stamped Happy Father's Day dad. I added pop up dots to give it some dimension.

For my 65 I used the Cricut Craft Room and the Craft Room Basics and the shadow feature to weld together the 65 purple base. I then cut the main layer out of a reddish pink card stock.Papers are from my stash. I sprayed the this layer with two coats of the Pink Glitter Dust Spray. My numbers were cut out at 4".
I used Scotch Quick Dry adhesive to adhere my number layers together. I also used the adhesive to attach my numbers to my card front.
My banner is cut from the Create-A-Critter 2 cartridge. (Kim can order this for you). I cut it at 3 1/4" out of some lime green card stock. I stamped my sentiment with some VersaMark embossing ink (Kim can probably get this for you). I formed my clear stamp so it followed the curve of the banner and stamped it. Since purple is my friends favorite color I embossed the image with some Presido Purple WOW! Embossing Powder. I attached my banner to my card using some 3D pop up glue dots. I used one glue dot on each end and two glue dots stacked in the middle so the banner has a wavy appearance.
This was a fun card to make. I hope you enjoyed it.

The saying I printed out from my computer and then added pop up dots. The hat(a stamp I had in my stash) I cut out and added some Diamond Stickles. The inside I stamped congratulations.

Today I have another tag to show you. I was never one for tags but have started making a few lately and love what I can do with them. I think I like the idea of working on a smaller scale.
I started with Core'dinations papers and used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge to cut out this lovely tag. There are more then boxes on this cartridges (Check with Kim about ordering it.)
Tim Holtz distress ink (frayed burlap pad) on the tag.
Perfect Pearls Mist (heirloom gold). It's hard to see unless you enlarge the pictures.
Kim about ordering it.) and I used Tattered Angels (Starfish) for the flower petals and Stickles (yellow) for the center.
It's been a pleasure to show you another tag and I hope that I have inspired you to try a tag if you haven't made a few already.
Thanks for stopping by,

Today for Cutters Creek I did a Birthday Card. On occasion time just doesn’t allow you to just sit down and color an image that you want to use on your card. So I went to my faithful box to see what I had stashed away. And there it was I colored a Magnolia image, Tilda over 2 years ago. That’s right 2 years ago! I was just learning the techniques of using Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol (Mineral Spirits).
I looked at it for a few minutes and said its perfect for what I want to do. I used some digital papers that went well with the colors I used on Tilda (mostly lime green and warm gray). I added dark brown color to her hair and gave her big rosy cheeks. Everything on Tilda was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils except for the skin I used Copic Markers. And I used my fine point scissors by Elizabeth Crafts. Let me tell you these scissors are awesome. I cut out between Tilda’s hair and arms with no problems (made for fussy cutting). You just take your time and let the scissors do the work for you.
Now I am thinking what sized of a card do I want. I chose a 5-1/2” square card. I rounded the corners of the card with the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. Then I went further in my stash and used some white flowers and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade and Shabby Shutters. Now you know I just had to add some bling so I used Stickles Glitter Glue in Lime Green and Yellow.
I kept looking at Tilda's posture and said I need a cute sentiment that will go with her posture. So I went shopping at the Silhouette Store and found the perfect sentiment (Hip Hip Hooray!). I glued the sentiment on green checkered cloud shape which is an external offset of the sentiment done with the Silhouette. And on the inside the sentiment will be “Happy Birthday” also cut on the Silhouette Portrait.
The large flower in the corner is the one I colored with distress ink and I added two leaves made from ribbon (very light celery green) from my stash. You know it sounds like I lot of work to do for one card. But if you have the right products and tools your card goes together so quickly. What takes long is waiting for the Stickles to dry :)
