Sometimes things don't have to be overcomplicated *okie knows she over complicates things all the time but won't tell her readers that* or over decorated. I think this set is very simple!
My daughter liked this set because orange is her favorite color.
Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge
Cricut Stamping cartridge
MME Everyday Tango stack
White Signo UM-153 gel pen
Circle punches in various sizes.
I cut out the flowers with the Cricut and then cut them in half with my guillotine cutter and then the same method with the centers of the flowers.
I like the sentiments on the Stamping cart because they are simple and have shadows. I haven't made any stamps with them but have used them quite a bit on projects. I believe I cut this sentiment at 1.5 inches. I thought about Cuttlebugging the sentiment but once again I got lazy and just wanted to get this done and move on to something else. Do you guys ever feel that way about a project you are working on? I feel that way all the time!
You can see a bit better where I used a stylus to run a line down the middle of the flower petals and then curved up a bit for a little dimension. I used Stampin Up markers for the faux stitching on the flower and then a white gel pen for the dots. Since the flower on the bag is larger I punched 3 circles for the flower center.
Hmm after seeing the pictures on here I do like the colors but how could I go wrong matching papers when they are from a paper stack! Oh the paper I am using on these sets are paper and not cardstock. I don't like using the thin paper on layouts or cards much but I think it is great stuff for projects like this since it is cheaper and I am not putting mega dollars into something that will be used once and tossed aside.
