My Cricut Craft Room's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

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.
