CRICUT & GYPSY
Sweethearts
“Bless Your Nest” cut @ w 2.18 x h 2.26 … on the Cricut I would cut this @ 2 1.4 inches.
Base Camp
“God” and its shadow cut @ h 0.70... Set the height and the width will be right....I welded the shadow “God” to the top of Bless from “Bless this Nest”…. . On the Cricut I would cut this @ ¾ and inch…. You can adhere this to the paper without welding it if you use your Cricut.
Stretch Your Imagination
Birdhouse its shadow blackout and its layers cut @ h 3.44...set the heights and the widths will be right… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3 ½ inches.
Home D├ęcor
Birds and their shadows cut @ h 0.93 set the height and the width will be right… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch.
Pooh and Friends
Branches cut @ w 3.65 x h 5.86 … I used the hide contour feature on the extra piece by the branch so that it wouldn’t cut… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 5 ¾ inches.
George
Hearts cut @ w 0.57 x h 0..45... You will only need 7 hearts… I cut out extras to put in the envelope with the card… on the Cricut I would cut these at ½ an inch.
Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… this cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.

Carmen said...

I really love your cards! I don't have a Cricut or a Gypsy though, but I still look at your blog for the inspiration! I like to do a nice job on the inside of my cards too. It so adds to the homemade effect of them! Enjoyed your video as well...love your accent!

most of my cards now and have told people
who read my blog to come here and check out
the instructional video about it. :)

Sandy Bayles said...

Jeannie,
I love this card and all the great things you do. I see my special gifts every time I use the computer. I wrote an e-mail to explain what is going on. I might get lucky and win the candy. I miss your e-mails.

CuttlebugCourt said...

Jeannie, this card is great and the tutorial is perfect! Thank you! It's videos like that that give us new card makers different ideas such as the glue you use with the small tip - I've been using Tacky Glue and it's not that much fun to do the small pieces with. Anyway, thanks so much and for the opportunity to win the stamping kit. I've been wanting to order that and try it!

~JulieH~ said...

Jeannie I love to watch your videos to see how your beautiful cards come together. Great tip on inking the circle I would never have thought about going from the back! Beautiful card and I love the text birdhouse and the heart leaves are adorable

Jeannie, I always love seeing your creations and first saw this one on the MB this morning.

Yet another lovely design.

Regina E said...

great project....love it...

mary said...

Cute! I imagine it is easy using cuts from several carts when you have a gypsy. I have DS which isn't too bad- if I have the right carts for the cuts I want. I would love to try the stamp kit. Thanks for the chance.

Maryellen said...

Jeannie, you'll never guess what
I came across today. A real bird's
nest in my butterfly bush! How
funny is that? It was perfectly
made, no eggs in it so I'm sure
it must be vacant now. I love
this card, your birdhouse cards are
always so pretty!
Hugs,
Maryellen

Hey Jeannie, my favorite card maker of all time, I love this card. I love the sentiment, the newspaper looking house, and the wonderful job you do! Glad I hopped along today.

Julia Moss said...

Margie said...

Very pretty card! Thanks for the instructional video!

Susan said...

You are soooo sweet. What a nice morning message. I am now the proud owner of a new tripod so I will now be shotting at a better angle - hopefully with no arm in the way action!! I would LOVE to have your tips - though I did figure out two already. I need a cheat sheet off camera with cartigdes and cuts listed. I also need to block in my filming area, just outside the camera view, so that I keep everything in frame. If you have a few more I could be good to go.

One of the things I love about this hobby is that we crafters LOVE to share our skills and knowledge with one another. Such a blessing!!

Hope your day is wonderful!!

xx Susan

Carol<>< said...

until next time...God's Blessings

Jeannie,
I am so glad that I found your blog page. When I first started going to the Cricut site and looking at all the great things people were making I was extremely impressed with your beautiful cards. I was so happy to find that you were creating videos so people like me,with not such a good imagination, could make such wonderful cards. Thank you so much and I always look forward to you next card.
