Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have come from Shelly. If you did not, please start at the beginning of the hop at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/
The first project I have made was done using the Stand and Salute Cartridge in memory of Sept. 11th.
I cut the "God Bless America" frame at 4" X 6" and then did a 2 inch tag adding the 9.11. I added a little red ink around the edges, and some stickers I had and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Not sure of the picture I am going to put in here yet, but it will be special.
For my second project I used Nursery Rhymes and made a card for my new grand nephew. Cutting the "Sweet Baby Boy" at 3", along with the shadow. I then felt it needed a little something. So I added some Ink around the edges of the shadow and used some Martha Stewarts Embossing powder in light blue to emboss the words. I added some paper, some ribbon and a cute button I had to complete the project. I hope he likes it. :)
Lastly I used French Manor and Sweethearts to create a Wedding card. This was my first use of Vellum and I wanted to try something different.
Using my Gypsy, I welded the "Mr. & Mrs." and rings from the Sweetheart Cart to the French Manor scroll card. I then cut off the back of the card to just use the front piece of Vellum and after cutting the shadow of the rings and Mr. & Mrs. and adding that, I glued that to some silver cardstock I had that I made into a 4.25 X 5.5 inch card. I then took some silver embossing and embossed the edges of the vellum and the words and rings. I embossed the diamond portion of the ring using some pink embossing powder.
So a little out of my comfort zone, but I had fun doing it.
Thanks to everyone for stopping by!
