CARTRIDGE GIVEAWAY for the CRICUT CRAWL!


THIS POST STAYING AT TOP FOR THE CRAWL! SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS!!!!
Welcome to 62Cards ( I am Sammye Jo! :) and the "Fantabulous Cricut Crawl"...our version of a progressive blog hop!


Fantabulous Cricut

If you've come from Robin's blog you're in the right place!
If you've just happened across my blog & would like to play along with Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, START HERE  LOTS of great prizes!!!  For our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, each Design Team member will be featuring a specific element related to using your Cricut. There will be a wide variety of techniques and elements that will be featured so make sure to check out each DT member's blog! There will be prizes along the way AND there will be a grand prize for the participant that incorporates the most featured elements on ONE project!!!

The element I've chose to feature for the crawl is...
Inking/drawing on die cuts!
Sure, die cuts are super cute right when they are cut, but adding ink, Stickles, glitter, White Pen, Smooches, jewels, pearls, etc to them just enhance their cuteness :)
Here are a couple more samples!





Now,  if you incorporate my element into your creation, you will be entered to win my PRIZE!
 A NEW CARTRIDGE!
I just happened to snag a great one at http://www.diecutsrus.com/ and I will be giving it away to someone who uses my element on your project!
While you are here, I would LOVE to have you join my blog as a follower! Just click the button on the right! I love giving away things :) ( be share to share this crawl and prizes with your friends on your blog!!)
Now it's your turn! See if you can use (your featured element) on a project!

Now onto the fabulous Sharon's blog! And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!
Make sure and leave me a comment here if you use my element!!!

Happy Crawling!
And for my regular readers who may not participate, leave me a comment anyways :) HINT HINT, LOL

Wow great ideas to jazz up your die-cuts so many great examples. Awesome post!!

Jessica Wekenman said...

This is a wonderful idea! I will definitely keep this in mind, and will be trying it out very soon! Like, after work! lol. Youe examples are great! Using your technique makes them more like store-bought, or 'designer' die cuts! I love this idea! TFS!

I just did this for one of the other challenges about embossing a die cut, hee hee hee......

Hey! I am following your blog now and can't wait to see more great projects. I used your element in my layout that I am uploading on FC for the challenge. Thanks for the chance to win!

Melissa said...

Thanks for the great ideas - I inked my embossed sun, drew white stitch marks on several of my cuts and used stickles on several of my cuts. It definitely adds a lot!

Jessica said...

Thanks for telling me about the crawl. Off to have some more fun. :)

Kate said...

Thanks for the challenge! I used a fair bit of inking and also used gel pens and a few gems on the layout I did for your challenge. You can find details on my blog (http://smallbitsofpaper.blogspot.com/2010/05/lady-lenore-layout-fantabulous-cricut.html). I posted at Fantabulous Cricut as well. Thanks for letting me play!

Melissa said...

I made another project for the crawl - this time a card. And of course I had to 'dress up' my cuts!!! I used stickles on the flowers and orange slice, glossy accents on the cherry, white ink on embossed background piece, and white stitch marks on the sentiment block. You really make some cute stuff - TFS and for the inspiration!!
