Today I decided that I was going to participate in the Cricut Cardz Challenge at http://www.cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com. The challenge request was to make a tall card (9" x 4") which fits into a legal size envelope. This challenge had no theme and no colour basis, so it was an anything and everything goes (practically).
To make my card I used the "Life is a Beach" Cricut cartridge to cut out the palm trees, sun and waves. Before I adhered the cut outs, I embossed my background cardstock with flourishes using Versa Color Cyan and clear ranger embossing powder. Using some of my stamps that I have at home; I stamped the monkey in the inner-tube and the saying "have a beach-n birthday!" using black Momento ink. Once my images were stamped and dry I used my copic sketch markers and coloured in the monkey and then I did the taring technique around my saying.
Then WAH-LA! There you have it. A wonderful birthday card for any age.
Thanks for reading and viewing.

These were the attempts I made for scrapbook layouts. I know they are little late (4 months. lol) but I thought I would share them anyways.

Alright, so I have some more Valentine's cards I had made that weren't part of the card class, that I wanted to keep separate. These were just simple cards using my cricut expressions, copic sketch markers, valentine stamps, buttons, primas, gems/bling, faux stitching and I also did some heat embossing. Enjoy.
Some more apologies for the backgrounds, I had taken the pictures at my creation station.

Here are 3 cards I had made during a card making class with the girls at Scrapbook Central in Courtenay. I can't remember everything that was used but we did a lot of stamping, colouring with copics and die-cuting; oh and of course.. adhering and using gems. 2 of the cards are standard open-close and 1 is a swing/pop-up card (the pink chandelier). I hope you enjoy and ask any questions you may have.

I just wanted to show you a creation I made for my Mom's birthday this past Saturday.
It's a simple card where I had letterpressed with ink using the circles spellbinder impressabilities metal sheet and then I cut out 2 scallop circles and used an acrylic cupcake stamp for the center. To destress the edge of the scallop circle I used brushed corduroy by ranger and then I used copic sketch markers to colour in the cupcake.
I apologize for the lighting I took it at night and couldn't use the flash or I would get a huge glare.

My name is Stephanie Mrdeza and I am 23 years old; and I am very new to the blogging world so it will take me a while to get my blog up and going steadily. I am from a small town on Vancouver Island called Campbell River. I haven't been scrapbooking for very long, maybe just over a year. I do mostly cards but I have recently went out of my comfort zone and started to make my own scrapbooking layouts. I will hopefully get some of my projects up on my blog for everyone to see. Then my next task is to figure out how to do videos.
Take care everyone.
