If you've ever honored me with a visit to my own personal blog, then you know that I am obsessed with two things: 1) finding ways to express ethnic heritage visually and 2) using my Cricut Expression! I'm so obsessed with my Cricut, that I became a Cricut Circle Member. This has allowed me to see the work of some very talented members through various challenges.
Today's tutorial was quite eye catching when I saw it in the weekly challenge about flowers. I thought it was a great tutorial to share for anyone celebrating Easter, but this could easily turn into a fun gift for Mother's Day, for a special little girl in your life, for a flower girl at a wedding...oh there are sooo many possibilities for this adorable project!
I'll stop raving and let Nadia's work speak for itself! You can see more of her creations at her blog, With Glitter Eyes.
|The card, tag, and basket are challenge projects I have created to match!|
I cut TONS of flowers using that cart and flood filling them with colors from Nursery Tails. After I made a few test cuts, I decided on several that I liked best.
|I was so glad I had this chart once I decided to make additional flowers for a card and tag!|
|I inked, glittered, and added pearls to accent them.|
|I used a chunkier glitter than I normally use and really liked the results.|
|Allison created this sketch!!! I have to learn to do that.|
I started with the cross on Easter 2010. I cut it at 2.9" with the shadow. I used matching flowers to decorate the cross.
|I think the basket is really enhanced by the tag. It really adds to it. I love it when things work out that way!|
Today is Palm Sunday. As we lead up to Holy Week, I wanted to be free for the extra services and events and am thankful to the challenge ladies for prompting me to do this project now!
