Welcome to Erica's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop. I am so delighted you decided to join our very talented Design Team. Our goal is to show you some of the projects that you can make with your Cricut cartridges. I do hope you find some inspiration along the way and that you try some of these yourself.

I am using the Yummy cart for the Imagine, Tinkerbell and Robotz cartridges for my projects.So let's get started:
I just love using this cart. The image is on page 8 of the booklet which I cut @ 2".I cut one image combined and then separated the images so I could use just the flowers of which I cut 2 more layers. Then it was just a matter of embellishing the flowers with some lime green stickles on the leaves, glossy accents on the flower and glossy accents plus glitter for the frosting. After it was dry I used pop dots to raise up the flowers.
While all that was drying, I cut a background mat using Elegant edges on page 52 with the oblong and shadow feature. I used Smooch pearlized accent for the flower centers after I inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink. You know me, I love glitz, so I used some Zing embossing powder in silver glitter finish for my sentiment. Of course I used Pink By Designs stamp set called "age is only a number."
This guy is so cute! I made this card for one of my Grandsons who turns 2 the end of July. This Robot is on page 57 of the Robotz cart. He is the Retro Botz. The layers I used were Retro Botz+shift, Layer 2 shadow+shift, Layer1+shift
. Whew that's a lot of pieces! I cut him @4'' so the pieces weren't too bad to work with. I inked everything while the cuts were still on the mat before I remved any of the card stock. This actually makes it so much easier to ink. The distress inks I used were Faded Jeans and Spiced Marmalade. I used a 5"x7" base and matted it with a piece of printed card stock from DCWV All About Boys Stack. Again I used the same PBD stamp set however I found there was a defect in this particular phrase. The #2 just wouldn't stamp right so I decided to use the black glaze pen Erica sent me as a member of the DT. (LOVE when she does that!!!). I am so pleased how this glaze added so much to the dimension of the phrase.
Provo Craft also has some awesome embossing folders which go with some of the carts. I love embossing and my cuttlebug but I didn't have room to do this on the front of the card sooo, I embossed the inside!
I had to use a wobble to make this robot really move, lol. This was missing something so I decided to add some "screw" brads to the corners before I put everything together.
My final project is the one and only Tinkerbell! I used the image on page 30 and cut it @ 3.5". The cuts on this cart can be challenging especially for facial features such as the eyes and mouth. So I decided to add the features by going over the cut marks with a fine archival pen before I assembled all the pieces. to add a little life to her eyes, I used the white glaze pen Erica also included in my package. Tink is also on a wobble action device.
I had also received some Zing red embossing powder and flower soft from Erica (I told you she was good to me, Hee Hee) so I found these would be perfect to use on this card. The flowers and butterfly is from Inkadinkado stamps and the sentiment is from My Time Made Easy. I used Versamark Dazzle Ink and the Zink red powder for the flowers plus a white opaque embossing powder for the butterfly.i finally had a chance to use the flowersoft for the center of the flowers. This is really cool stuff to use.
