Hello Thursday Day 4- card made with Toy Story cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today is day 4 of the Hello Thursday projects reveal! Today I am giving away the Preserves cartridge!! If you are a frequent follower of my blog you know that I love to use anything fruity, so this cartridge is near and dear to my heart! To win this cartridge all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and make sure you are signed up to get email or follow this blog.

On to the card....

Today's card is made using the Toy Story cartridge. As I have said many times, I am not much for actually cutting the Disney shapes. I do love the fact that there are usually lots of other shapes that can be used in a non-Disney way. This little lamb is a perfect example of this! I cut him at 2".



I used October Afternoon paper on this card(which I love) and a Papertrey Ink sentiment.



The background that the lamb is mounted on was cut using the Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge and colored using my copic markers.

What a beautiful card. I would never have guessed that lamb came from a TS cart! That's what I love about the Cricut carts, the images can be used and altered to suit your needs in a million different ways. :)

Great card that can be easily modified for a boy or girl. Also a good reminder to think of our cartridges in ways/shapes/uses other than the main focus (Disney Toy Story).

Jennifer said...

Melanie,

I love your card! I do want the Toy Story Cartridge for the actual Disney characters (we're a houseful of Toy Story fans!), but it's always nice to see how versatile the carts are! :)

Like you, I love fruit (I probably own more fruit stamps than any other)! Not only do we go fruit picking (mostly for cherries & strawberries and it would be great to scrap our pictures), but I am partial to pears (maybe it's the whole partridge in a pear tree thing-my last name is Partridge)!!! LOL!

Thanks for giving us another chance to win a wonderful prize, :)

PB + J Designs said...

This card is just adorable and who would have thought that it was made with the Toy Story Cartridge. I love the really soft baby blue that you chose as well as the paper. Just too cute. You always have such lovely cards but, I think I needed to see that it was possible to use that cartridge for other things too....
When my now 15 year old was a baby I really could have used it. Everything was Toy Story but, now I have a newphew and he's into it as well. So, for his Birthday I made the three main characters by hand for a card for him they came out just wonderful but, back then I really wihs I had this cartridge and now I can see that I could still use it.
