This is my submission for the Make It Yourself Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog. We had to create a project that was inspired by magazine articles in the Cricut Circle Magazine! Here is what I came up with:
The Hot Air Balloon came from the Everyday Pop Up Cartridge (cut at 3 inches). The card base was cut by welding two shapes from the Elegant Edges Cartridge (both images were sized at 5.5 inches; layer cut at 5 inches). Lastly, the "SOAR" sentiment was cut from the From the Nest Cricut Cartridge at 1.25 inches.
My project was inspired by numerous projects in the Cricut Circle Magazine! The Kraft coloured paper was inspired by all the "manly" "cards in this issue. The general layout of the card was inspired by the Little Boy's Happy Birthday Card. I was influenced to create a shaped card because of all the wonderful shaped cards in this edition! This is were my inspiration came from for this card.
Today I am participating in something a little different. You may not of known, but I have decided to join the Cricut Circle for a term to see how I would like it... All I can say is that it is AMAZING! I am joining in on one of the weekly challenges. Here is my simple creation featuring two Cricut cut outs:
This card was entirely made with my Cricut. The Ice Cream Sunday was cut from the Birthday Bash Cartridge and the card base was made by welding shapes from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge together. The sentiment featured in this card is from Joy's Yummy Puns Stamp Set. You can check them out HERE. She also has two new stamp sets coming out soon; click this link to view them.
I hope I have inspired you to create something today,
I have been insanely busy the last two weeks. Its the last week of school here in British Columbia... then I have THREE provincials (exams made by the BC Board of Education)!!! I have lots of studying to do.
I thought I would catch everyone up with what I have been creating recently. Here are the past two cards I have made for the design team:
I used a variety of stamps to create a background for this card (I used Tim Holtz distress ink to stamp)! This has to be one of my favourite cards yet!
A Punny Card:
I used Create a Critter to cut out this cute little chick! The stamp comes from Joys Barnyard Puns Stamp Set. Check it out here!
I hope everyone has a peaceful and restful weekend,
