Walk In My Garden cartridge and the bees

The first card is from a Stamping Up card I saw on a blog. I don't have the stamps but I do have a cricut with bees on a cartridge. I cut the beehive at 1 and 1/2 inches and then sized the bees in design studio so they would look right. Used inking on the edges, used a studioG stamp "just beecause" on the inside. The second card is just bits and pieces I had on my craft table. extra cuts from other projects. Flowers and bees from WIMG and grass from PS. I am trying to use all my scraps this year.

Happy St. Patricks Day

Well for St.Patrick's Day I thought I would share the card I made. I used SCAL and the cricut. I found a dingbat that had Irish pictures. Converted this one into an .svg file. Cut it out with my cricut and then cut extra clovers from the paper doll dress up cartridge and pop-dot them over the others. I like how it turned out.

2 more Easter Cards using SCAL

For these 2 cards I used SCAL and some fonts I downloaded. I was not sure how the delicate font would cut but it came out great. The card with the bunny on it uses a different font which I welded together. I used the white gel pen to outline the edges. I was very pleased with the results.

Breaking Out to say Happy Easter
