Have a goodie card made using Lovely Florals Cricut Lite cartridge and copic markers

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the Lovely Florals Cricut Lite cartridge and my copic markers. This nice scalloped image is just perfect for stamping an image and coloring it in with your trusty copics. Forget nestibillities...try one of these shapes instead!



The scalloped shape is cut at 4". The stamp used if from Papertrey Ink.



The paper is the Bo Bunny Double Dot. Speaking of which I am going to have to get some more because I am running low!



I hope you all are having a great week! I went to the dentist yesterday because I was having trouble with one of my wisdom teeth....so if that tells you what kind of week I am having. The worst part is I can't get them extracted until August!! Oh well, I guess I have waited 16 or so years to do it. What is a couple more months. Have I mentioned how freaked out I get by even going to the dentist? It has not been a great week ;-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

What a sweet card! I don't have any copics yet - I've been spending $$$ on all those new cartridges. I'm waiting to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow so I can buy all the stuff I really need. lol

Very pretty card. Your coloring is great. TFS!

coachfans said...

I have never used copics, but I looked into a class at our local scrapbooking store. Your card gives me more reason to attend.

daygirl said...

Love the card-wish I had copics too!

Michele said...

The scallop is so darn pretty and love the stamp.

What a sweet card! I love the colour combination!

Isabel Z said...

Love what you did with the coloring. Copics are on my wish list--sigh, I don't even own one.

Santaread said...

Love the scallop circle.

cinmfoster said...

Great card, thanks for sharing.

Grandma4Five said...

I love this card! I really like the cards made with the copic markers, but I'm leery of spending the money on those with all I have spent on all of the other inks and pads I already have, but this almost convinces me to make the jump! It's such a refreshing card! Thanks for sharing yet another idea and cartridge with us.
Blessings, Donna

Jude said...

Love the card! Love that you changed things up and incorporated your Copic markers. TFS

Miranda said...

Great Card! I am loving these new carts!

Luv 2 Create said...

Fabulous card. Love the shaped circle you used, but I still love my nesties, ugh. But this cut used with the nesties would really be a plus. I love the copics too. I only have about 30ish. Definitely need to add to my collection. Since they are so costly, maybe you could suggest the best way to start buying - individually, by the lg sets, or small groups of the same color shades.

Sorry about your dental problems....the dentist is no fun. I love your card...I've been using my Lacy Labels shapes as mats behind my Cricut cuts. I love all the beautiful shapes.

Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth - I've been there, done that - hang in there until August! You can do it!

jordanbev5 said...

I had both of my sons get theirs out last summer. It didn't cause them any pain. They just had to sleep the first day, and rest for the next days after. Hope you have the same type of experience. Great card and cartridge for cards. LOVE the image with the copics, too!

Gramjak said...

Absolutely gorgeous card! I truly sympathize about the dental woes. I, too, have spent time waiting because I was fearful.
thanks as always for the beautiful tips and creativity you share with us!

Sharon said...

How very pretty! I just love how you color your stamped images!! :)

Lynn B said...

Very pretty card! Great coloring! Using the cartridge instead of nestibilities makes sense.

mekei said...

This is a GORGEOUS card! Good luck with your wisdom tooth. I still have all 4 of mine... but for how long? Take care. I hope everything goes well.

nadine said...

Great card. I love the sweet flower. I have been looking everywhere for the BoBunny double dot paper since of course you made me fall in love with it. Where do you find it?

Love the card. Hang in there with the wisdom teeth. Had all 4 taken out at one time about 4 years ago and had no problems.

Cathy said...

Nice job especially on the grass. Your copic skills are impressive.

Susan L - Hernando said...

What a cute card. thank you!

Manhattan Mandie said...

Love your card!

CARDS by SUSAN said...

Love the card. Love the mat. I don't use nestabilities, I think they are awkward. So I justify cartridge purchases by NOT buying nestabilities! How is that for logic?!
Thanks for sharing

Ms. Jen said...

Love those shapes. I'm lovin my digi's so I can appreciate that. Good luck with your wisdom teeth! Been there done that..... No fun at all!

Sarah said...

This card makes me smile:) Whata nice summer idea!

CuttlebugCourt said...

Great card! I grew up in a dentist's office so I don't get scared easily, but the trick is to get ice packs on it RIGHT away. have someone you trust come with you and literally the minute they're allowed to see you have them come in and put ice packs/frozen peas on your cheeks. You'll be fine!

mahuntington said...

Very pretty card. Love the scalloped circle. Say the word dentist and I start to shivver! I always put off going for years and I even have insurance. I had such bad experineces when I was a little girl that it has scarred me for life.

Susan said...

Love the card - sorry about the whole dental thing!

shari said...

Melanie, your card is so pretty! I think I might need this cart. Shari (cricutrookie)

This is adorable! I think lovely floral is one of my favorites of the new carts that came out. You really do a nice job with the stamp/copics.

Nicki Lundeen said...

Love the card!

Cathy H. said...

Love the card. It would sure brighten someones day. Thanks for sharing your talent. Good luck at the dentist, I did the same thing last year. Wasn't too bad at all.

Chris said...

Sorry to hear about your dental problems. I am not a fan of the dentist either. Love the card and can't wait to get that cartridge. Should have bought it yesterday when I looked at it like my son said. Oh well, the pocket book appreciates that I didn't.

Jingle said...

Your card is super cute and super happy, which is interesting because if I had to make an appointment to have teeth extracted I'm not sure I could feel super cute and super happy! LOL! Good luck with your teeth!

Kel said...

sorry about the teeth! Cute card!

I love this scalloped shape! So cute!

Angela said...

Beautiful! So excited that I got Celebrate with Flourish yesterday. It's a good thing the Walmart I went to only had 3 carts to choose from because I am so torn about which ones to get.

Question: Recently one of your posts or Joy's posts mentions the best go-to set of Papertray Ink stamp sets to purchase. Can you please tell me which one it was? I am loving all of your sentiments.
Thanks for all of your inspiring projects.

Haven't tried to copics yet, but love how you used them. Cute card.

Sandy Bayles said...

Melanie,
What a great card. I love the delicate colors. Sorry about the teeth. I had to have all my Wisdom ones removed. I don't have any copics yet also been spending on the carts. I have a wish list so long it will never get completed.

ctimzthree said...

Awww Mannnnn!!! I didn't think I wanted to get that cart....but then you had to go and make such a cute care!!! I guess I better add back on the list LOL

Donna said...

Beautiful card, Melanie. I really like it.

Hope your teeth feel better real soon.
Thanks for sharing,
Donna

Scrapfaire said...

Bless you Melanie. So sorry to hear about your teeth. DH just had one removed today and so it's been a terrible day, terrible week since he went last week and found out what was causing his pain! Stitches come out next week, hopefully then the summer will get better for us. LOVE the card. That flower stamp is AWESOME. The frame is lovely!! TFS!!!

Scrapper69 said...

Oh Melanie...What a pretty card! The colors are wonderful and I still LOVE that Paper... Can you tell me where you get yours at? I have a LSS but they carry very little and I want all the colors of the Rainbow!!! LOL
Also wanted to add that I know having your wisdom teeth out is nooo fun! I had mine pulled out about 10yrs. ago and I do not like the dentist either! I did get lucky with the dentist I had at the time...he was very gentle... but it was sooooo painful.... I know...you didn't want to know that, but it wasn't painful for days and days just maybe 2 days... 1 of my wisdom teeth was sooo stuck that they had to cut my gums (OUCH!) and stitches were in that spot... but it was well worth it once it was all done! :) I hope I didn't scare you! it really isn't that bad! :)

TeresaKaufhold said...

That scallop is just so cute! Love the colors you used!

Debby said...

Sweet card, love the daisy, my son just picked me some nice daisy's out of our yard.

yvette said...

what a beautiful card, and your coloring in is awesome!! I just bought promarkers 2 days ago, so I am very much a beginner when it comes to coloring in with these kind of pens :)

Amy said...

What a beautiful, bright colored, cheery card!
Sorry to hear about your wisdom teeth - I'll be thinking of you. Mine were impacted and 2 were growing in sideways, so I had to have minor surgery to remove them...wow, that's been 18 years ago.

Anonymous said...

So pretty! I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your wisdom tooth. I used to hate going to the Dentist, too until I found the most wonderful dentist a few years ago. He is sooooooooo gentle.

Sassy Scrapin' said...

This is super cute! I so love daisy's! Love the coloring....so love copics, still working on getting good with them!

Love the papers you used. Adorable!

Oh, such a cute card. I bought a set of these markers but have yet to get them out and use them, hopefully this will give the push to do so, thanks.

This card is beautiful. Someday I hope to own some of these great copic markers.

I really like this card and how simple it looks but the thought that went threw it. What are copics? How are they different from other markers?
