Smiley Cards Mini-Blog Hop


Crazy about Cricut had an idea late last night about doing a mini blog hop this morning, with cuts from the new Gypsy download....(you have till tomorrow to register your gypsy for this exclusive download!)
This is a quick card from Smiley Cards. Now this was truly last minute so bear with me. 
I used stamps from Pink By Design from Take the Cake set.

 I thought I was doing Blackletter one of the other free downloads so I'll show the little embellishments I made with them as well.  I am also happy to say it was the first time using my Gypsy with the Imagine. The Imagine cuts way better for me than my E. Hooray!! My first hop too. Lots of firsts today!!

I cut out a blue M and popdotted it to the M inside that  I welded.

I loved this symbol and welded it to a frame. You could open it up and there is a pic.

Putting the shield inside the frame used my Bic Markit markers


The Mini Blog Hop goes as follows:

Have fun hopping and Happy Scrappn!!

  28. Thank you all for the kind comments. I was super excited.. .I think I'm a visual kind of person.. I didn't know what the heck I was looking at on the smiley cards.. I've only had my Gypsy for a few days so I was trying to fix that learning curve and I didnt know what I was looking at with the smiles.. On the other cards you can go look at the handbook and figure oh . .. that is what that is. How these other women figured it out.. well they are amazing. I can't wait to see what you ladies create.
    Oh and a big thank you for leaving me your blog address. That really helps me. I love to follow and be inspired.
    Hope ya'll's halloween was awesome!
