Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's April SHowers, Full of Flowers blog hop
If you arrived here from Ashley's blog, then you are in the right spot. If you just happened upon my post, you will want to start at My Cricut Craft Room as she is giving away a Cricut Mini.
On the first day we will show you a project with the theme, April Showers, then on Sunday we will either transform our project into a "Full of Flowers" project, or we made a matching item with the theme of Flowers....
Erica's Craft Room is sponsoring this blog hop with ONE of the prizes being a Cricut Mini machine. Be sure to comment on ALL of the blogs both days to be entered to win the Cricut Mini Machine!Yes, you read that right Erica's Craft Room is giving away an actual Cricut Mini Machine. This isn't small candy you guys. This is super generous of her, so spread the word and invite your friends to the hop.
Here is my project for today. I made a card featuring the same inks and cartridge I used yesterday, but with a very different end feel.
SPECIAL TIP...When spreading glossy accents, stickles, or liquid pearls with your finger you don't want to leave fingerprints in the surface. Avoid the prints by coating your fingertip with a thin layer of the product you are using. It will fill in the ridges on your finger tip and keep you from leaving prints in it. I actually glued them down with glossy accents too. It makes a great adhesive too. You can also get your Glossy Accents from Erica's Store
HERE.The flowers were created by pressing white roses into the Wild Honey distress ink pad. I then squirted it with a mini minster to make the color spread. Once it was dry I sprayed them with Frost glimmer mist. It still needed a little something, so I squirted a little ice stickles on my finger and rubbed it across the edges of the flowers.
I really like the way the card turned out and hope you enjoy it too. Remember to visit all the blogs in the hop and comment on each one to be eligible for the Cricut Mini.
