Normally, I would be posting the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday of the week, but not today - we have something even better in store for you. The Fantabulous Cricut Blog is having its FIFTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!
It's Spring Time and everyone at the Fantabulous Cricut had decided to have a SPRING FLING! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original SPRING project that includes PINK, GREEN and YELLOW on it along with at least ONE CRICUT CUT.
If you've come from Maquel's Blog, then you're heading in the right direction. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT member's blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a SPRING FLING project at FCCB!
For my project, I created a SPRING sign.
I used the Storybook Cartridge to cut out the 'Marquee2' label using the Tall/Border Feature. This cut doesn't bring a Shadow or Layers, so I used Design Studio to resize the labels and layer them.
The base of the sign was cut out of chipboard - aka Cereal Box - using my Deep Blade and MultiCut 3. Between the first layer(green) and the second one(blue) I used my homemade dimensionals. The SPRING title is also popped out using dimensionals.
The SPRING title was designed using the Don Juan Font cartridge and replacing the "I" for a Spring Tulip from the Simply Charmed cartridge.
The Birdie - also from Simply Charmed - and the Butterfly from Create A Critter are taking a rest on top of the SPRING title.
To finish off my SPRING sign, I added three paper roses in PINK, YELLOW, and GREEN. The YELLOW rose, is not originally that color. I used my YELLOW ink pad to color a white rose. Cool trick, right?
