This project has a lot in it today. A Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card.
In the past week I have become a member of two design teams. With this project I’m showing how to use items that meet both of the design team requirements.
The first design team I want to tell you about is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (aka FCCB).
Being a part of this blog will challenge me to use my Cricut more often in projects. My biggest hope is that I’ll learn more techniques on how to use my Cricut and become a better user of this device. Hopefully this will benefit you as my audience as well.
The second team I want to tell you about is Calico Collage.
The designer Norella puts together beautiful collage sheets for the public to purchase and use. Looking through her designs I knew that these were a perfect fit for me to use in my art creations. My hope is that you will enjoy seeing these images and will be inspired by what you see.
For today’s project for the FCCB the challenge was to use something new. Since I’m new to the Calico Collage team I chose one of her Dashing Men images for this project paired with the Circut cut file: Home Decor Frame M3C018.
Other products used, scraps of Canvas Corps Brands paper – Damask, scrap of 7 Gypsies American Vintage State Plates Paper, scraps of black and kraft from my stash. Brutus Monroe Detailed Ink – Raven, Sharon’s Script – Thinking of you. Tim Holtz Distressed Ink – Brushed Corduroy. A Stamp in the Hand Script stamp. Lastly Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – It’s Black.
Here is a video of how the card was made.
This was a fun card to make, that helped me use things I had on hand. Making this card also made me think about my Cricut Cut files a little differently. I’m looking at the files in new ways to figure out how I can use these in more of my projects instead of every once and a while.
I hope that the Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card project has inspired you. Please make sure to visit the vendors using my links. Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
