Stampin Up! Country Greetings Card

Last year I purchased a ton of used stamp sets from a friend of mine. I made a promise to myself that I would try to use them all this year.  This set is called Country Greetings and is from Stampin Up!  I really like this set!

Tea and Coffee Cup Gift Holder

I'm continuing my series on the Cricut Tags Bags Boxes and More, 2 Cartridges!  Did I mention how much I like this cartridge?  Here's a tea cup that I made using this cartridge. I set my Expression to cut at the maximum size. I absolutely think this would make a sweet get to know your neighbor gift!

Here's the cut for the coffee cup.  I loooooove coffee!

Card - For You

Continuing my posts on the Cricut Tags Bags Boxes and More, 2 Cartridges that I love!
Here is the For You card that you can make with this cartridge. Using the scoring blade and a Cricut marker I was able to create this card with 3 passes through the Expression. The first one was the score, then the cut, then the sentiment. I added a cute flower as a finishing touch!

Cheeky Glamour Card

I purchased the Cheeky Glamour stamp from The Greeting Farm late last year and I just haven't had a chance to use it until this weekend. Admin's day is coming up so I made her to look like one of the admins at work.  I think she'll be thrilled.
