007: Cricut Watermelons

My friend Carrie hosted a card swap recently. The mission: create a card using your Cricut! I chose to accept the mission, as I have never used my Cricut for anything but my scrapbooks! I know, I obviously need to get out more!

At any rate, I was literally shaking in my chair with the mere thought of not applying ink to anything on the card. I mean, is that even legal?? :) (To calm my nerves, I did manage to get some ink on there! LOL)

Here is my creation:



Stamps: PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments
Paper: Kraft, Real Read, Basic Black, Whisper White, Glorious Green
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Mike's Ribbon, Cricut Doodlecharms

I am also honored to have been given another blog award! Grace sent this one to me. Thank you so much Grace! I am blessed to have met you through our wonderful Blog group!!





I am honored to pass this along to 5 other bloggers who have become part of my circle of friends! Choosing 5 is difficult, but here it goes:

Paper Challenge: 8 swap cards created, so I am now at 48/100 projects complete!! :)
Almost over the hump!!

This challenge has been fun, in a self-deprivation type of way! LOL Seriously, I have really been loving it! I am excited to have inspired many of you to join in the challenge. I am feeling a great sense of appreciation for the paper that is slowly disappearing from my stash! How about you?

This turned out great! You should make cards with your cricut more often. And you know, I've seen tons of cards in the cards magazines with NO ink at all! OMG!

Teresa Jenkins said...

Wow... no coloring, glad you got a smidgen of ink in there though!!!! Great card! Hmmm, if you start using your Cricut to make things, your paper challenge will be done quicker LOL

Gina said...

what a challenge! You are really doing some difficult one; no paper and no stamping on that card! You pulled it off though, it looks great.

Cute card. I don't have a cricket but I am sure it is fun and addicting. It so reminds me of August with the watermelon.

Naomi said...

LOVE it!!! I can't do a no-ink card, either. Makes me shake something fierce...LOL!!! Your watermelon looks so great, and I love your simple color combo. You ROCK. Oh, THANKS for passing on the award. I will pick it up and post it tonight when I have more time. Thanks!

Good job that you accepted the challenge! No ink . . . those are tough, but that Cricut looks handy in a pinch! Pinch . . . like pinching watermelon seeds!

Wow, you did great with the challenge, what a cute card! I would have a hard time too not using any ink on my cards!
