Hello card made using the Cricut Stencil Project cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I have been meaning to make something with the Cricut Stencil cartridge for the longest time, but wanted to do something really cool. Well, I finally decided on what I could do that was different from my usual. I made a negative and just inked in my leaves and trunk. Then inked in the sky and grass later. The effect is pretty cool! I just might do it again. This was so easy and a big departure from the same old same old with usual cricut cuts.

I used a felt adhesive alphabet from Close To My Heart for the sentiment.
I added liquid glass to the leaves to give it a little bit of shine.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will see you back here tomorrow with more!

This turned out really nice it is truly different and you always do something unusual with your cartridges and that's fantastic. I really like your tree and your inking skills are really great it does take special talent to do the sky the way you did and the grass...I know this'll sound crazy but how in the world did you ink it in later this blows my mind I mean you are the Queen of Copic too but still wow!! TFS!!

A wonderfully different take on Cricut cuts! It would be fun for kids to make 1 cut, and mass produce something for their classmates.
