365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#237-283 Crafty Sprouts New Release blog Hop/ Nurse Smurfette and Twilight Cards

****CLICK HERE to view DAY 1****

Hi everyone!! Good morning and welcome to the much anticipated Day 2 of Crafty Sprouts Stamps New Release blog hop, hosted by Erika AKA Crafty Sprouts! If you are here fromKristi's Blog then you are in the right spot! Erika has come up with some FABULOUS new awesome stamps the our DT is going nuts over LOL!! Believe me you will not be dissapointed you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Them all!!

The first set I will be showing is called "FEELING ICKY" this is a great set for someone who isn't feeling well and needs a lift!

When I first saw this sentiment "Does the flu have you feeling blue?" I automatically thought of the Smurfs!! Luckily I have the bestest blog friends ever and my sweet friend Monica saved me because she knows how to make files into SVG's woo-hoo!!! I searched and searched for a Nurse Smurfette and I couldn't find one and Monica aka Simply Cricutting was glad to help, thanks girl you are the BEST!!!!

Nurse Smurfette was a little challenging to piece together because this didn't have an outline on where to put all the pieces like a Cricut cart does, so I pieced it together just buy looking at the picture online, I wanted to give up but I'm glad I didn't because I didn't want to let my friend down and it was worth it in the end, Nurse Smurfette is soooo cute!! I also added twine and inked up the paper with Broken China Distress Ink and added pop dots under her and the sentiment.

Here's a closeup of the sentiment and also the entire Feeling Icky stamp set it is available for pre-order HERE

The next set is the very much anticipated "FANPIRE" stamp set that we the DT have been drooling over for a while LOL! I am so glad Erika decided to make a Vanpire themed stamp set how smart and cool is that!!

I found this amazing Edward SVG for FREE HERE on Mardenz Blog I am so happy that I made the switch to SVG's because I haven't bought a new Cricut cartridge in months!! Especially when I can get SVG's for free or dirt cheap woo-hoo!!! 

 I cut the Edward SVG with my SCAL 2 using my Cricut Expression (also for smurfette) and then I placed him upside down in my Xyron sticker machine and poured black Halloween Martha Stewart glitter on top. I stamped the music notes with a background stamp and sprayed red Glimmer mist all over and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink, I colored my bling with a black marker because I didn't have black bling this large! I used my DCWV paper stack that looks like Twilight paper for the red rose background paper and distressed it using my Heart Attack paper sander from We R Memory keepers, and added some blace lace ribbon.

Here's a close up of Edward and the stamp I used along with the entire "FANPIRE" stamp set that is available for pre-order HERE
I hoe you enjoyed this release because I LOVE it and I could picture using both these sets for so many different things! have a great weekend and have fun watching Edward, Bella and  Jacob on the big screen this weekend!!

***Just a reminder be sure to leave a comment on all the DT's blogs both days to win all 4 New Release stamp sets!***

Sandra, I just love your Smurfette card. I always liked the Smurfs and remember watching wth my daughter which is now a parent herself. Would you be able to get me this SVG cut. I hand cut everything outside the Cricut because I don't have a gypsy, computer program or reliable computer I understand. Thanks so much for all te fun.
