"Toad-ally" Fabulous!

Yes, it's my favorite day of the week at My Cricut Craftroom, Theme Day Thursday! This weeks theme is Disney's Tinkerbell or Cars. Since I only had time to make a card (okay 2 cards), I needed to use a cut from one of these two carts that aren't too detailed. If you have ever tried to use a Disney cartridge before, you will notice that there are a lot of details that cut better at larger sizes. I found this cute little "toadstool" in the Tinkerbell handbook.

I used the pattered CS from Echo Parks "Country Drive" stack along with solid CS from PTI and S/U. The stamped sentiment is from MPS "Punny-licious" set. I added a little bling by using Stickles in the flower centers. One interesting item that I noticed when cutting, the top, lighter layer of the toadstool cut out a little "dot" on the right side that wasn't pictured in the handbook. So I free hand cut that tiny little piece so it would stand out as black.

Here is another interpretation using Basic Grey's "Out of Print" cardstock. I just couldn't decide "whimsical" or "artsy". The sentiment I used for this card is from Pink By Design's "Feelin' Groovy" set. I added a little Peeled Paint Distress Stickles (because I couldn't resist:-)

Please stop on over to Erica's blog at to see all of the other DT's creations. Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day:-)


  1. I love your cards. I so want this cartridge!! love it :)

  2. This is so cute! Love the colours.
    Thank you for sharing and Happy New Year! :)

  3. totally agree about the pieces to these carts cutting better at larger sizes, I made a baby name frame for my grand nephew at Christmas time, it was a good size and the pieces were still small...ekkkk
    your cards are fabulous, love the dp u used, of the two cards my fave is the first one, its really pretty and I love the play on words for the sentiment....great job :)
