Celebrate with Cuttin and Stampin!





Hello Crafty World,
Here at Cuttin and Stampin we are HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY and in the mood to CELEBRATE.  Today we are having a blog hop Celebrating our new Design Team and kicking off our weekly challenge blog.  Each of us has produced projects to Celebrate.  (If you got here from somewhere other than Robin's blog, please click here to start at the very beginning of our hop.) 

There are 11 new Design Team members and the final stop is where you can enter to WIN blog candy.  There are (2) $25.00 gift certificates to A Muse Studio up for grabs.  So grab a cup of coffee and hop along to meet the NEW CUTTIN and STAMPIN Design Team. 



I’m Teresa and a SAHW. I just recently took a leave of absence from my teaching career to determine if early retirement is for me. I began scrapbooking when my first grandchild was born almost 16 years ago. I have dabbled in all kinds of crafting since I was a very young mom. You name it I have done it. Being a SAHW has allowed me the time to really get back to creating. I am so very thrilled to join in with Tammy and be a part of this new and exciting team. I hope you are inspired along the way to get creative and crafty. Make sure you visit A Muse Studio to see all the great products they have in their catalogue.  

I used the brown cardstock as my card base. It is the typical A2 card size 5.50 x 4.25.
I embossed the top white piece which on the back side is the chevron pattern with my swiss dots embossing folder.
Then, cut a small strip of the dark pink for the bottom. I adhered these two together and then distressed all the edges.
I cut the bird at 3.5" from my Cricut cartridge "Cherry Limeade"
I inked around the edges with chocolate ink. Stamped the sentiment with A Muse Studio's Contemporary Greetings
stamp set. I then used twine to tie around the bottom edge of the dark pink.
I turned the top right corner down and secured it with a pink sparkle brad from my stash.
All product except ink and the pink sparkly brad used to make this card came from A Muse Studio.
 I am in love with their products.


I want to thank you all again for stopping by and being part of our CELEBRATION Hop.  Your next stop is the fantastic and talented Kim

Don’t forget to hop all the way through leaving comments for each of the DT members and enter to win blog candy at the end. 

In case you get distracted along the way, here is a complete line up so you can make it to the candy.

How cute your little birdie card is! I like the way you folded the paper that you embossed so we get a little peek of the pattern there too!
You have been such a joy to get to know and I look forward to working with you on the team!

Simple and sweet!

I am looking into buying a cutting machine; confused between Silhouette Cameo and cricut, and advice on which would be a better choice?

Thanks!

Cute card. Love the turn-down corner. I have a problem with double sided paper. I feel like I'm wasting one side. This is a clever solution. THANKS!
