Happy Easter

I hope that you aren't getting tired of my Easter cards creations?!

Once again I used the Easter 2010 cartridge. I created this card in my Gypsy using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the circle base of my card. The circles are cut at 4.75 (Width) and welded together. The little lamb is cut at 3.12 (Height), the grass is cut at 1.71 (H), and the layer (blue polka dotted paper) is cut at 2.18 (H). I used the Fiskers Seasonal Cassette Punch set for the butterflies. I used the Inkadinkadoo - Happy Everything stamp set. I did some stitching around the border of my card and finished with ribbon.

Happy Easter Cards

For this next set of Easter cards I used the Easter 2010 Solutions cartridge.

The portrait style card I cut the bunny at 4 1/2" and the eggs are cut from several matstacks that I have. I also cut the egg for my sentiment at 1 1/4". The basket is from the Doodlecharms cartridge and that is cut at 1 1/2". I used the Divine Swirls embossing folder and then did some stitching with my white gel pen into the embossing. I used the Inkadinkadoo - Happy Everything stamp set for both of my cards. I also used the Martha Stewart fence punch. The background paper is from the DCWV So-So Sweet matstack.

For the landscape style card I cut the bunny at 3 3/4" with the shadow,I also did some inking around the bunny on this card. The eggs are cut at 0.3 inches on my Imagine using the patterns from the Yummy Cricut Imagine cartridge. For the sentiment I cut another egg from the Easter 2010 cartridge at 1 1/2". I put little "pom-poms" on both of the bunnies for the tails.

Happy Easter Card #2

Today isn't quite as nice as it was yesterday, but I'm still in the Spring mood. So today's card I used the Easter 2010 solutions cartridge. I cut the bunny at 4 1/2" added a googly eye and some ribbon to her. I cut the scalloped egg at 2" and the other egg at 2 1/4". The grass is cut at 1" from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo - Happy Everything set.

There are several ways to do this particular card. You can put the bunny in front of the eggs, make the eggs smaller and off to one side, or you can cut the bunny out in white. Endless possibilities and I am off to make more Easter cards using this cartridge. Happy Scrappin'.....

Happy Easter Card

It feels so much like spring here in WI todayu, so I decided to get a head start on my Easter cards. I used the Create-a-Critter cartridge and cut the chick and shell out at 3 1/4". I used my computer for my sentiment and typed out Happy Easter and printed it in the color purple. I also used the Fabulous Finds for the label of my sentiment and added 2 yellow brads.

Cricut Cardz Challenge # 62

For this challenge, make a card (Cup of Cheer) using and cup image, any cartridge, and any color.

So since I am from Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers won Superbowl XLV I thought I would use this to my advantage! I used the Smiley Cards cartridge for the mug which I cut at 4". I also used the internet to create my background paper by using a helmet image and copy and pasting it throught. I used a piece of green cardstock to match my card base that is cut at 1"x4" and wrote the word "Cheer" on it. Then I finished off the card by using some yellow ribbon.

Baby Scrapbook Layout

This is one more of my favorite layouts and it's super simple. I used only one cartridge, All Mixed Up (font) and cut the phrases at 1 1/2". Added some ribbon and buttons to tie it all together!

Valentine Cupid Card

I used the Sweethearts cartridge for this Valentine Card. I cut the Cupid on page 33 out at 3 1/2" and all layers including the shadow feature. I embossed the heart with the swiss dots and the cupid with the divine swirls.

I also used My Pinks Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions stamp set.

I would really liked to have used the bow but it kept turning on me, so I tied a knot in its place instead. I think it may have looked better if the sentiment was on the right side instead of left too.

Green Cricut Imagine?

After watching a recent video of Sara (mypinkcricut) husband spray painting her Imagine, I decided that I can do that and so I did. It was very easy to take a part and put back together. Remember, Provo Craft said that the with the Imagine we were able to purchase colored pieces for the gray, but they have lacked to release any yet. Also, spray painting your own is going to be cheaper than buying a colored replacement. The spray paint was under $5 at Home Depot.

I chose the flourescent green to go with the Cricut logo color and since I'm sure most will choose pink or purple, I wanted mine to be different. The only minor issue that I came across is that they do not make a plastic paint in this color, so as you can see it isn't very shiny, but anything is better than gray :~)

I am still going to be "decorating" my imagine with some bling and wording, but haven't made any commitments to what exactly I want, so until then I will leave as is!

Valentine Goodies!

Making all of this was a blast and super simple!

I purchased the pink tin mailbox, heart and love stamps, and the princess pens at Target for $1/ea.

I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for all the hearts...cut at 1 1/2" and 2". I also used K&Co Valentine stack for my paper and the Martha Stewart Heart lace punch. All the notecards that I made are 3x3, and all layers are cut 1/4" shorter than the previous. I used the bakers twine that I purchased from and the colors I used were pink sorbet and marschino.

Cricut Imagine "Yummy" Card

For this card I used the Yummy Cricut Imagine cartridge and My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions Stamp set. The brown layer is cut at 4.7, pink layer is cut at 4.4, and the sweet shop is cut at 3.2. For this inside I used one of the borders from this cartridge as well and cut it at 1.3. I inked around the edges with my Colorbox inks and did faux stitching around the card. I also used pink sorbet twine from to finish off the card.
