We made a card at Janice's last night, actually we made 4 cards. All of the cards were Christmas cards and were quick and easy. I will post the others soon. I don't have the stamp sets for the other cards so I haven't duplicated them. We used dies on the original but I used the cricut to make this one.
For this card I got the inspiration for Mary from cards TV, I watched her YouTube video on this project. I had to change things up a bit because my Martha Stewart punch just doesn't work. I ended up using four different cricut cartridges on this card I used Ribbons and Rosettes, CTMH Art philosophy, Winter Woodland and Mini Monograms. I also deleted the bow and added a sentiment.
The sentiment comes from Stampin Up.
I posted this card already this time I thought I do a new spin on it I used washy tape to make my ornaments I love the glitter on this. I use tape works that I got from Walmart. I cut a 2 1/2 in.² and just cleared the tape very close together trying to lineup the patterns best I could.
My Pink Stamper is up and running again. She had a bit of a hiatus but now she's back. When she released her stamp sets before I never had a chance to order any. Well she is re-releasing some stamp sets and ink pads and she has a new one as well.
I have to say that Robyn was a ton of inspiration to me when I received my first Cricut. When I purchased my cricut it sat on my shelf in my craftroom for months without being used. I didn't know what to do with it. Well then I found the My Pink Stamper Blog, and I have been using my cricut ever since. (I have 6 of them if you include the Imagine and the Cricut Cake -- and yes I use them all, I also have 170 cartridges and a gypsy). Love love love my Cricut.
Please go and support Robyn, her stamps are of the highest quality.
After I spilled coffee all over my workstation and the card I made last night (ruined it), I decided to make another card tonight. This was inspired by a YouTube video. I used plantin schoolbook and create a critter 2.
Here is the first card Info made this year.
This was a very simple card, I found a tutorial on Youtube so the design is not mine. I added the embossed ornaments to the design to give it something extra. I used some scrap pattern papers. This was fast and easy, a great way to use scraps. I think I'll make a few more like this. The punch is from Stampin Up and the Sentiment is from CTMH
This is another card we did at Janice's workshop on Friday night. I love the simplicity of the card.
We used a punch to cut the flowers, and dies to cut the leaves and black border for the sentiment. I don't use dies as a rule, I have so much money invested in my Cricut, I know without the dies I can duplicate this card. I love the stamp sets used in this they were Gorgeous Grunge and Work of Art.
