Throwback Thursday "Cricutless Challenge"

I finally decided on how I was going to attempt this "Cricutless Challenge" for Throwback Thursday at My Creative Time and this is what I came up with.  I'm so happy that this type of challenge was given, it made me (and I'm sure for others too) to re-explore life without Cricut.  The requirements for this challenge was to *** Create a CARD using the colors PURPLE, ORANGE, GREEN & BLACK and obviously not use your cricuts, imagines, e2's or your gypsy! *** But you could use punches &/or cuttlebug!  I knew right away I was going to use my cuttlebug, probably some stickers, ribbon and maybe a button or two. 

I am also entering this in the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Halloween challenge

This is what I used to create this "Cricutless" card:
  • Black, orange, purple, and green cardstock
  • Cuttlebug
  • D'vine Swirls embossing folder
  • Stickles and Studio G glitter glue
  • My Moments peel-n-stick ribbon
  • Silk flower
  • Crystal sticker (pumpkin in center of flower)
  • (inside) Martha Stewart corner punch
  • (inside) stamps

Thanks for looking and I think I may have to come up with some more projects without my Cricut, this was fun!!!


  1. Nicely done! I love those swirls in the front and the webbed corners on the inside.


  2. Nice the embossing! Good luck in the challenge!
    You asked me about the containers I used for the candy corn. I purchased them at a craft store called Crafts Direct but I think you can get them at Michaels or Joannes. Maybe Hobby Looby too:) They are plastic tube containers~company is Nicole Crafts (that is on the sticker if that helps.
