Happy Saturday and Happy Halloween!!
I have been working on wedding thank you cards a lot today and finally finished them. JUST IN TIME because my new Limited Edition Cricut cartridges came in the mail today!!! I wasn’t expecting them to arrive until Monday so I jumped up and down with excitement :O) I pre-ordered all three of the new ones: Snow Friends, Very Merry Tags, and When It’s Cold Outside.
As normally scheduled for Saturday, I also have a new Stampin’ With Sami Lesson prepared and ready to type up for tonight so stay tuned for that as well!
Here is my first card using the new carts:
- The base of the card is Stampin’ UP Real Red cardstock. I embossed the cardstock using a Texturz plate and the Big Shot.
- This cart features a snowman from the Cricut Snow Friends cartridge. His little outfit was cut out of patterned paper from the Stampin’ UP Merry Moments designer paper pack and Very Vanilla cardstock. I used the Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker to make the buttons and the stitches on his vest and hat. His cheeks, lips and nose were cut from cardstock (Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, and Only Orange) but his eyes were drawn on because the little circles were too small to glue on. I drew them on with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.
- The snowflake was cut out of Old Olive cardstock using the Cricut When It’s Cold Outside cartridge. This wasn’t one of the most intricate snowflakes on the cartridge, but it wasn’t the easiest one either and the Stampin’ UP cardstock cut perfectly. I know some people had worried that the intricate cuts might not cut very well, but I think they will probably cut ok after trying this one out.
- The sentiment is from the Stampin’ UP Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I punched it out with the Stampin’ UP Modern Label punch. See the border around the modern label??? I made that with one of the Movers& Shapers dies!!!!! I just got these with my last order and I love them!!! The Movers & Shapers have to be used with the Big Shot. I have a Stampin’ With Sami Lesson on the Movers & Shapers (click here to see it).
