Sweet treat cup card - DtsArt Design Team.

This weeks project combines my love of stampin up with my love of my cricut and SCAL. This week we were given a cute little sweet treat cup flower card to play with. Now this little flower can be used as its own little card, and I really encourage you to check out the other design team's projects as there are several creative ideas on how to use this cute. Dardi also did a great job giving instructions on how to use the trap door so that you can easily access the goodies within. Check out DtsArt Blog to see the other designers goodies and to get this great file!

Dotted Scallop Ribbon Boarder Punch
Hemp twine
Sponge Daubers

To color the flower and tag I used the sponge daubers. I would get a little bit of ink on them and then would dab most of the ink off on a scrap paper and then rub the ink color on the flower, the flower was cute out of white paper.

Giraffe Gift bag - DtsArt Design team project.

This week from DtsArt we got these cute little boy and girl Giraffes to work with. They reminded me of a baby shower so I decided to use the little boy to decorate a gift bag for a friend.

I absolutely love how this came out. I hate paying more then a $1 or $2 for a gift bag but love to have a cute little bag, and this is a perfect solution. I got 12 of these little paper bags for $5.99 that's only $0.50 a bag!

Little Monkey Project - DtsArt Design team

Make sure to check out http://dtsartblog.blogspot.com/ for today's freebie, and to see what the other DtsArt Design team members came up with. Let me tell you we have a very creative bunch. Also if you would like to own this cut Click Here

My 1st DtsArt Design Team Project.

I'm really excited to be posting my first DtsArt Design Team project today. A couple weeks ago Dardi from DtsArt art sent us the cutest little boy and girl bunny cut files. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them at first, but then I came up with the perfect idea. I've been wanting to start a recipe book for awhile and thought that what would be more perfect then stating it with our Easter tradition of Honey Bunnies, and these adorable cut files would be the perfect accent to the pages. Well here is what I came up with, I hope you love it as much as I do:

Here are some close ups:

Tell me these are not the cutest little bunnies?

 I cut the title 3 times, inked each layer and then put in the little stitch marks.
