For my fist project today, I have used the Father's Day Seasonal Cricut Cartridge.  

For my card base, I cut some light blue Recollections card stock.  I cut it at 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and folded in half making it 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  My green layer is cut at 5 1/4 X 4 and is also from Recollections.  My back ground paper is from DCWV - The Glitter Mat Stack and is cut at 5 X 3 3/4.  My bat and ball image was cut at 3 inches, cutting each layer.  I adhered it to a piece of white card stock and cut it out by hand to make the ball white.  My ribbon is from Weal- Mart.  My sweet sentiment is from K Andrew's Splash-tastic Summer stamp set.  I stamped it on a piece of white card stock and cut the ends off and inked around the edges. 

My next card was made using the New Arrival Cricut Cartridge!
This cartridge is one of my favorite cartridges.  This is a typical A2 card.  I used pink card stock from my scrap box as a base and inked around the edges with some SU Certainly Celery ink.  I added a yellow layer also from my scrap box and inked around the edges with the same ink.  I rounded all the corners with my corner chomper.  My images were cut at 3 inches.  I added some light green glitter glue to the Stork's hat and used my black gelly roll pen to add some faux stitching to him.  I then pop dotted him up on some foam tape to give him that flying look.  I added some wiggly eyes to my baby along with a piece of pink and white baker's twine as a bow.  I used my white gelly roll pen to add faux stitch lines to the pink blanket and pop dotted the baby up as well.  I stamped my sentiment on the blanket using K Andrew's Owly Hoo Sentiments and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  To get your own set of these awesome stamps click here!    You can also get her stamps in Erica's online shop.  My ribbon is from Michael's.

And for my final project today, I used the Tie the Knot Cricut Cartridge.

My 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inch card base is cut from Recollections Precious Metals pack using the silver sheet.  My white layer is from Georgia Pacific (Wal-Mart) and ran through the Cuttlebug using the Sizzix Tulip Frame folder from Stampin' Up.  I cut the purple center layer from Recollections Jewel pack.  I cut my image (sentiment) at 1 1/2 using the same silver paper.  I then cut it again using the shadow feature on white card stock.  I pop dotted it on the purple layer and then added some crystals in the corners. 

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today, as you can see I like clean and simple.  What blog hop would be complete without blog candy, right.  Well for your chance to win some surprise blog candy from me, just leave a comment on my blog.  I won't require you to become a follower, but if you do or if you are already a follower, leave a 2nd comment telling me so.
