My Pink Stamper Challenge "My Style"

Ok so I said it would be tomorrow that I would get to play with my E2 but I got so excited again about it after my last post that I decided to sadly put my original Expression away and put my E2 in it's spot. When I put away the "Original" I decided to clean my craft room before putting the E2 out. I organized all my paper and my stamps, it only took me 1 1/2 hours ( my daughter had fallen asleep so I had time). After dinner I decided to play around with the E2!!! I really love the Cricut Decals Cartridge that comes preloaded on it so I decided to use that cut to make my card for the My Pink Stamper challenge that she has going on right know. The challenge is: Show YOUR style making your favorite thing!  This could be your favorite color combo, your favorite Cricut cartridge, your favorite technique, etc.

For me anything I make is "My Style" but my favourite colour is green and I am pretty sure that the Cricut Decals  Cartridge is going to be my new favourite cartridge sorry Create a Critter!! I also like trying new things when it comes to crafting so for this card I did/used 5 new things

1. I used my E2 for the first time
2. I used Cricut Decal Cartridge for the first time
3. I didn't use my Gypsy (it's been over a year since I have made a cut without it)
4. I used PKS Just baby Faces Assortment Package for the first time
5. I embossed 3 separate pieces of paper with the same folder and then glued them onto one paper to blend together ( you'll see what I mean when you see the card)

so are you ready to see the card??

Here it is:

What I used:

Cricut Decals Cartridge:
Girl on duck cut at 2.5"

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:
Seeing Spots

Peachy Keen Stamps:
Pk-650 Just baby Faces Assortment Package

KAndrews Stamps:
Splash-tastic Summer


Black ink and gem from Dollarstore

White Gel Pen:
Stitching and eyes

All paper is just scraps I had left over

I am really happy with how this card turned out, I can't believe how well the E2 cut the thin lines of the girl with the duck. The only problem I am having is hooking my gypsy up to the machine, I want to weld things together to cut and make shaped cards, I will try and find videos but if anyone can help I would really appreciate it!!

You have until Monday Night to enter in the challenge over at My Pink Stamper.

Have A Great Night
God Bless
