Cards made from new Cricut Magazine

Today I purchased a digital copy of the new Cricut magazine to give it a trial.  The magazine has a lot of things in it that I'm not particularly into but I did find several things I wanted to make.

The first two cards are based on photos from the magazine. 

Heart- cut from Slumber Party at 4"
Love- cut with Cursive 101--I used DS's grouping feature to resize the letters to fit
           the letters are coated with Glossy Accents
Paper is Little Yellow Bicycle

I added a stick on gem, some white doodledots with a Signo pen and stamped some little flowers with SU white ink pad.


On this one I used SU brown cardstock, computer generated the background paper.  I cut out the words and overlayed them on the background paper.  The ice cream cone is from Indie Art, added some Prima flowers with Stickles in the center.  I used a SU scallop edge punch on the side of the card and added some doodledots with my Signo pen.


Thanks again to Karen Y. for the Prima flowers!


This last one is just something I put together.  I saw one similar in a back issue of Cards Magazine.  I printed the cloud sentiment in my Hallmark cardmaking software, cut it out and outlined it with Crystal Stickles.



****EDITED TO ADD***

I decided the little "hello Sunshine" card was just a little too plain and added a Prima flower with a Stickles center to the upper right corner of the cloud.  Now it looks finished.

Hi Linda,
I just became a follower. I've seen your cards on the mb and think you'll be my Cards for Soldiers shipper. Your work is fantastic. Your Valentine cards (all of them) are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm placing you on my blog list so I can follow easily.
Hugs,
