Bopping around to all my “regular” blogs and internet sites today, I saw that My Pink Stamper was looking for 2 new design team members. I own two of her DVDs and one of her stamp sets and absolutely adore them all so I was excited to give it a go! Truth be told, this challenge / design team call is the reason I finally have a blog up and running.
The challenge was to: “Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using my favorite colors…… Pink, Green, Brown (other optional color of your choice)”
Here’s my project:
Plain wooden frame (Michaels)
Beige Glitter Paper (Paper Reflections Glitter Paper Stack)
Brown Cardstock (Core-dinations Colorcore “The Chocolate Box”
Green Embossed Cardstock (from my scraps)
Pink & Brown Argyle Paper (from my scraps)
Brown StazOn Ink
Fiskars stamp (Baby set)
Gypsy (Need Gyspsy Wanderings for the leaves)
A few choice adhesives
I used my gypsy to squish the tree I wanted to cut from the Serenade cartridge so that it would fit a bit better on the side of my frame – had I left it the way it was, it would have covered up the space for the photo entirely.
While my tree and leaves were cutting on the Cricut, I painted the sides and inside of my plain wooden frame brown.
When the tree was finished cutting, it still had a branch going across the opening of my frame so I trimmed it off and re-attached it where I thought it fit better.
The Final Project!
Once everything was dry and adhered together, I stamped my quote using StazOn ink (I tested it before on a scrap piece of the same material because the paper was quite gritty and I was unsure I’d be able to get a clean image, but it worked quite well!)
This frame was made to match Colby’s room – the project I did in there was actually featured in the Cricut Chirp newsletter – check it out 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
