Welcome to my blog for today's daily challenge. There's this really cute little fella that I just adore. He's one of my BFF's son. His birthday was this past week and he just turned 5. For those of you like me without children of their own, my friend's children get special attention from "Aunt Emily". Being a "special" aunt also has its privledges. This is the card that I made my favorite 5 year old for his birthday. He can't get enough of trucks, trains, and other heavy guy things. This was absolutely perfect for him!
For this card I used Beep Beep for the tractor. It was cut at 3"
Learning Curve for the title, cut at 1"
Disney Princesses Dreams Come True for the "rock", cut at 2.88"
The title was welded together using the Gypsy
Thanks for visiting and viewing my project. May you have a wonderful day!!

Hi all! Today's challenge is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft using a food shape from one of the many wonderful cartridges. For this challenge there were so many possibilities, but my brother's birthday was this past Wednesday so I decided to take care of two things at one time and create a birthday card. I've always struggled creating cards for men since I love all things girly, but here is my take on the challenge.
The card base is 5.5x4.25 and is white
Pattern paper is from CTMH national scrapbooking kit.
Cardstock: colonial white, desert sand, smoothie
ribbon: chocolate and colonial white striped
Cartridges and cuts
Sweet Shop: the cake was cut at 3"
Art Philosophy: the tag was cut at 1.5"
Stamp: Card Chatter - Birthday (CTMH D1475) in desert sand
Thanks for taking the time to view my project. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I then searched frantically for a panther (nada) and then I thought about using an ant, but I didn't have that either. So I did the next best thing and improvised. I used the tiger from the Animal Kingdom cartridge cut out at 4.79x6.65 using the gypsy. Also using the gypsy, it has a hide feature so I was able to go through and hide all of the cuts for the stripes (since panthers don't have stripes!) I added a pink nose and used a Honey marker for the eyes. To make him show up a little better I used a glitter pen on the detail cuts.
The fun part was the cheerleaders. The cheerleaders were cut from Everyday paper dolls at 5". Each layer was also cut at the same size. Since it has gotten close to impossible to find a good match for skin color the cheerleaders were cut out using a white paper that comes from StampTV and then colored using copic markers. The colors that were used were:
Skin color: E00, E11, E13, R20
Hair: 1. E25, E31, E50; 2. E35, E31, YR20
Uniform: C7, C6, YR14, YR15, YR16
the same colors used for the uniforms were also used for the pon poms and shoes. I outlined her lips using E04 (natural lipstick) and just grabed a blue and blue/green to do their eyes. .
As a final touch I used bitty sparkles to set off their ponytails. Since the cheerleaders didn't really show up very well (because of the light colors) I decided to take a black marker and trace around the edges. This really helped them to pop off the page.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my daily project for this round. I hope everyone has an awesome day and Happy Scrappin'
