Whimsical Anna Griffin card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Whimsical Anna Griffin card
Today, I have a fun card that I made using the Cricut Anna Griffin Elegant Embellishments cartridge (that is a real mouthful). I love an elegant Anna Griffin project as much as the next lady. However, this time when I decided to use this new cartridge I thought it would be interesting to mix it up a little. Making this card more whimsical than the usual all done up Anna concoction would be a challenge, but was so much fun! 

To simplify, I used all solid color cardstock. I wanted to use several cuts, but didn't want to make this super fussy with lots of patterns. 

I used the Have a Happy Day stamp set (pictured below) for the sentiment. This set is one of my favorites from the new catalog! Isn't it adorable?

Cricut Artiste 'Owl'oween card

Hello, friends!
Cricut Artiste 'Owl'oween card
Today, I have a Halloween card I made using the stamp of the month and the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

I used our new markers to color this little cutie. To add texture, I used the Colorless Blender and made little v's all over the owl's body. What a difference it made! I will definitely try this technique again!

Yesterday in the comments section, someone was asking about step by step instructions. I was going to email you more information, but I could not find an email for you. However, I do provide the cutting file for every project I make. Even if you do not have an Explore, you can still click on the file and you can see what the sizes are. Since I do provide the files I do not give a step by step. Anytime you have questions about a project, just email me and I will help you out! I do need to figure out a way to make you all happy as far as instructions go with out adding a ton more hours to my blogging work week.

Cricut Wedding card

Hello, friends!

Cricut Wedding card
Today I have a card made using the Cricut Formal Occasion cartridge and the Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set. It is for this week's Bitten by the Bug challenge which asked for a project using a dress form from any Cricut cartridge.

I searched Cricut Design Space for 'dress form' and this was one of the images that came up. I thought it was so pretty and would make a beautiful wedding card. This one will go into my card stash because I do not know of anyone getting married. It is good having cards like this ready to go.
