BBTB2 Challenge – Star Wars

A Star Wars challenge is up on Bitten by the Bug 2 in honor of May 4 (May the fourth be with you).  I chose to do a birthday card for my husband as he and the kids used to watch the Star Wars movies on videos (and later DVDs) together all the time.


This year my special family birthday cards are wiper cards.  You can find ways to do them online and Lori Whitlock has some cute ones too.  In the end, I made my own using basic shapes and score lines.  I downloaded a font from called Star Jedi and used it to make the front of the card which was cut out of yellow vinyl and black vinyl.  I did use the new offset feature on Design Space to do the “you” on the front.  After making an offset of the original word, I sliced the two which created this nice outline.  I downloaded an image of this old Yoda from the internet and used the print, then cut feature.  I tried to find an image on Design Space, but they all seem to be the new baby Yoda, which didn’t work with the message I wanted to make about being old. It is attached to a strip of acetate so that it pops up as you open the card.  The papers came from a Paper House pad called Hunting Paper and Park Lane’s Celestial.

Here is the wiper card in action.

Make your own Star Wars (or any project with stars) on your Circut and link it on the Bitten by the Bug 2 by May 9th.  The designers really have some cute projects there, so check it out.  May the Force be with you. – Denise


Bitten by the Bug 2 – Fairy Tales

The challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2 for the next two weeks is Fairy Tales.  I was in a different kind of mood when I thought about this challenge and did a more grown-up take on the challenge.


Last year my niece had me do several wine glasses for her and her friends with different punny sayings relating to different Disney characters.  I didn’t have pictures of those glasses, but decided it would make a fun tag for a bottle of wine (or other spirits).  This fairy godmother is from Disney – Princess Happily Ever After.  I flattened the image which makes the image into a print, then cut and is really helpful for these detailed images.  The tag itself was easy to make from basic shapes – a rectangle 2 1/2 inches x 8 inches with a score line 2 1/4 inches from the top and a 1 3/8 inch circle centered in the top.  The font is from DaFont and called Waltograph.  A few solid sequins and it was done.  Quick and easy. Now that song will be running through your head, lol.

Make sure to join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 to see what other great projects the designers have and link up your own Fairy Tale project using your Cricut.    – Denise
