Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #306 - Anything Goes

Welcome to another Monday challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  This time our theme is Anything Goes.

Create a project that features anything in the Cricut Library!

This Weeks Sponsor

To qualify for the prize of 4 digital stamps, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project. If it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Our DT has some fabulous inspiration as always.  I used Bubaboo's Unicorn image and here's my card:

Unicorns seem to be quite trendy right now so I was delighted to have a chance to use this darling image.  It's colored with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut out with an oval Nestabilities die.  I dusted chalk around the image while it was still in the die.  I cut the overlay using the Art Philosophy cartridge - isn't it beautiful?  I stamped the sentiment and distressed the edge after die cutting it.  Then I glued the sentiment to the oval, attached the overlay to the card base, and popped up the oval in the center.  The sequins finished it off. 

We want to see your projects at FCCB so hop over and check us out!  Maybe you even won our last challenge.

613 Avenue Create #199 Anything Goes - Option Monochrome

Hi, friends!  I apologize that my post is a bit late for this month's Anything Goes Challenge at  613 Avenue Create.  The optional twist is Monochrome.  Sometimes things just don't go the way we plan them.  Oh, well.  Anyway, I created a masculine birthday card and here it is:
 I went with all patterned paper for this card, only stamping the sentiment.  I just love those two-toned shoes!  I fussy cut them and popped them up The sentiment is popped up also.

I have stamps with all those images except the pipe.  So in the future I may a similar background using my stamps.  I think that would be fun.

Be sure to show us your project and check out our winners for June.  You have a month to play along with us.
