Same layout, two different cards

How's everyone doing today! So far today has been a good day except for one little mishap. I was helping hubby put his portable hunting blind away and it got away from me and snapped up and hit me right across the bridge of the nose. OUCH! It hurt like the dickens and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get a couple of black eyes from it. They should put a warning on those things. Good thing my hobby isn't dangerous. I can't imagine anything like that happening with my stamps and other stamping tools!
Speaking of stamping tools, I have been playing around with my Cricut some more. Man I love that machine. It's definitely a justifiable expense. If I added up what it would cost for all the die cuts that it makes it would be hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Both of the cards here were made using the same layout and the Cricut.
On this one the large DP with the ribbon slots was made using my George Cartridge that came with the machine and baby letters were made using my Mini Monograms. I also used my Giga and large square scallop punches, corner punch, paper piercer, cuttlebug and flower EF, pearl stick-on gems and ribbon. The stamped sentiment is from one of those clear $1 stamp sets from Michael's. The papers are Pretty In Pink (SU) and DP (the paper studio).

On this one, the flower was made using my George cartridge and changing the size each time. I stamped the Cranberry Crisp (SU) flowers with By Design (SU), sponged all the flower edges and then embossed them with clear EP. The other items used to make this card were my corner punch (scallops), ribbon, Greetings Galore (SU) and a brad. The paper is Soft Sky (SU) and Figgy Pudding DP (Basic Grey). The inks used were Cranberry Crisp and Versamark.

That's all I'm gonna post for now. I do have two more cards ,but there is a line forming for the computer. The kids are out of school and hubby is home and I have to share.

Hope you all have a great day! Be back later!

Ouch! your poor nose.....I think you are being rather tame, saying it hurt like the "dickens"! I might have had to say more than THAT but then I wouldn't have been able to put it in print! :) Glad you like your Cricut (I used to say cry-cut)Your cards are great!

Betsy said...

I can see you are enjoying your Cricut!! That's so great. And be careful when helping the hubby...those black eyes can be hard to explain! Take care of you,

Michele Kovack said...

Ouch! Hope you don't get those black eyes! I love my Cricut too! Your cards are awesome! Just an FYI....There is a site called Bitten by the Bug. I am on their DT and every week Regina Easter posts challenges using different cartridges. If you are looking for ideas or a chance to win prizes....pop on over! The link is on the right side of my blog.

Ouch, your poor nose. I hope your DH spent the rest of the day pampering you ;)

Your cards are so nice. Isn't it amazing how many "tools" we can use on just one card, LOL

Looks like you're having big fun with the new Circut. Great cards.

Ouch! That sounds very painful! Stamping, card making, and scrapbooking are MUCH safer activities! Cute cards! I love my Cricut! I probably don't use it to its full potential, but I'm so happy to have it when I need it!

Happy New Year Becky!

P.S. It might just be me, but the yellowish font on your blog is a little tough to read. I just wanted to mention that. Happy 2008!
