Damask Divas Blog Hop - April 2014

Welcome to the Damask Divas' Ariana Blog Hop
for April 2014.

If you came from Mandy Leahy's Blog,  you are in the right place. 
This month I had a hard time picking the perfect card to do, so I did several and I am going to let you choose your favorite.
The first two are gift card holders that I can never get enough of, because I tend to always give money or gift cards for Birthdays.
Using the Artiste Cricut Collection Cartridge I cut out the Gift Card Image on page 55 at 4.75".
And I used the negative space on the mat to size the top pattern just a little smaller in Cricut craft Room.
Using the Art Philosophy Cartridge I cut the decorative Rectangles at 2 1/8 and 2 3/8" respectively.
Then proceeded to decorate using the following items.

Pear Ink         Hollyhock     Outdoor Denim  Ribbon    Funky Blossoms
Outdoor Denim Cardstock              Joyful Birthday
   Z1790  Z1686                X7179B
Artiste              Art Philosophy     Tombow            Ariana Paper Pack
 Foam Tape    White Daisy Cardstock

Card No. 2


Artiste Cartridge Gift Card Cut page 54 at 4"
Using the Art Philosophy Cartridge I cut the decorative Rectangles at 2 1/8 and 2 3/8" respectively.
Items Used:

           Z1790  Z1686   
(Inside Saying)
I used Ranger white embossing powder and Versamark ink to put the sentiment on the inside of the card.

My Favorite Card #3

I used the sketch pattern from the Huntington Gathering Project for the idea, then
made it my own.
Z1927      Z1924      
  (inside Sentiment)   
Z1704 (Badge Buttons) - Discontinued.
