Cricut Fun


Hi everyone!
I've been having fun playing with my Cricut so I wanted to post some of the cards I created this week.   This one was made using both the Cricut and the Cuttlebug.   The vase and tulips were cut with the Cricut.   I used a sponge and some turquoise ink to add some shadow to the side of the vase, and I'm not sure if it showed up in the picture or not but I also added some details to the tulips with my ZIG markers.   The scalloped ovals and the corner accents were cut on my Cuttlebug, and I also added some sponging to the corner accents to give them some dimension.

Next, I did this cute little turtle card.   Isn't he stinkin' cute?   I sponge the sky and grass background and then added some blades of grass with my ZIG markers.   Then I added all my die cuts and embellishments like the googly eye on the turtle, the buttons on his shell, and finally two button butterflies.   I don't think I'm giving this one away.  Hee Hee.

This last one was made almost entirely from the Cricut.   I sponged  the background to look like sky and grass, and then  I sponged the edges of the flower pot and then popped the top part of the pot up on foam tape.   The flowers were all cut from scraps and then  glittered in the centers for some sparkle.   I did use a punch for the leaves, and then cut the word Thanks on the Cricut.

I hope you enjoy!
God bless!
