Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release Countdown Day 2

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release!! Were you pleased with yesterday’s projects? Well let’s see what today holds.

Let’s take a look:

Grandma blessingsI love this Grandma Blessings stamp set because the sentiments are so true.  Grandma’s are truly a blessing and we don’t know how lucky we are to have them until they are gone.

I lost my grandmother last month so this set really hit home for me.  My grandmother spoiled us.  She was tough but she really loved us and made us laugh.

Since my grandmother isn’t here anymore, I decided to create a “postcard” card to send to my grandmother in heaven.  I will place it in her bible when no one is looking.

Here’s how this card was created:

Use Cricut Design Studio to create the card base.

Placed a piece of kraft board on a standard mat and run it through the Cricut Maker.

The Cricut Maker scores (with the scoring stylus) and draws the lines (with the midnight pen) on the card front.

Once the Cricut Maker finishes, peel the card front off of the mat.

Fold on the scored line.

Using the Mini MISTI, stamp a sentiment on the left side of the card using Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

Let that dry a bit.

Then stamp the flower stamp underneath the sentiment using ColorBox Crafter’s Berry Ink.

Super simple and easy card!

There’s more:

The Cricut Maker can cut out an envelope as well.

A simple butterfly stamp in the bottom right corner keeps the entire set CAS!!

Nicely done.

National Sticker Day 2018

Hello everyone!!  It’s National Sticker Day 2018!! Yes, they have a national sticker day, LOL!!

How many of you use stickers and what for?  I use stickers in my planner/journal.  Stickers make the pages come alive. I love the bold colors and the big bold sentiments you find in stickers books.

Today, I’m going to show you some stickers I printed and cut using my Cricut Maker!

Let’s Take a Look:


For these stickers I used printable vinyl to create these super cute stickers.

I choose this design in design space and followed the directions.  Designs space prompts you to print with your pinter first then you bring it back to the machine and it cut the stickers out for you.

Take another look:

I love how easy this was to do and I created these whenever I want to.

What are you doing for National Sticker Day?  Do you create your own stickers or buy them from a store.  Please let me know.
