Would You Ever Guess Wednesday?


     Good morning friends, this is my design team post for My Cricut Craft Room.  Today is Would You Ever Guess Wdenesday, and what we do on this day is make a project, not using the main Character images, and trying to show other ways, other then the obvious ones, on using a cut or cartridge.  This week I have to use a Create A Critter cartridg and not use the Animal cuts. 

     Papers used were from Michael's Recollections collections and DCWV and MY Mind's Eye. What I decided to do was take the Stamp cut on page 67  as an accessory,and instead of using it as a stamp, I made it into a picture frame.  I cut it out at 5 1/2.  I then took a piece of My Minds Eye and made the Mat.  Cut it at 3 1/4 by 4 1/4.     I then cut a log on page 72 in the accessory column at 1 1/2 and inked it with TH distress ink Walnut stain.  My next cut was the behive on page 68, cut at 2 1/2, and the edges were inked as well, and then a small piece of Trendy twine was added at the top.  Next I used the  flower accessory cut on page 69. cut at 2 inches.

     Lastly I used the Artiste cartridge to make a bow on the bottom of the card....I just Love this feature!!   After I cut it out, I used a white gel pen to make Faux stitching around the edges. and added a Rhinestone brad to the center.  I used the stamp Your the Best, from CTMH. For bling, I used Bo Bunny gems .

Well that is today's project, hope you like it, leave a comment:) I love them.
