Welcome to Cricut After Dark and the Fantabulous Cricut Harvest Blessings Crawl -- Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!
It's fall and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to create projects to give thanks for our Harvest Blessings! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original fall project that includes brown, orange and red – along with at least one Cricut cut.
If you've come from visiting Jennie at EarthyScrap, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE .
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration. There will be prizes along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs for a participant who submits a Harvest Blessings project at FCCB!
My project is a turkey place card/decor, inspired by this winner from Michaels' 24-hour Gypsy Challenge in 2009. I don't have a Gypsy or the cartridges used, so I improvised with my own -- and I really like the result:
- Papers - stripes by Me & My Big Ideas - Autumn; cardstock by Recollections
- Cricut Cuts - feathers are <trap1> (Upright) from Opposites Attract, page 62, cut at 3 inches; body is same, cut at 5 inches, rolled and taped; head is <round> (Upright) from Opposites Attract, page 63, cut at 1.75 inches; beak is <yourday1> (Italic) from Cricut Classic Font, page 71, cut at 0.75 inches folded; waddle is <turkey1> (Layer 4) from Simply Charmed, page 61, cut at 1.75 inches (real dial size); tag is <cute> from Playtime, cut at 2.5 inches; "grateful" sentiment is <pilgrim> (Phrase) from 3 Birds on Parade, page 41, cut at 1 inch.
- Embossing - feathers with The Paper Studio's Doodle Borders; tag with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots
- Other - inking with brown Stampabilities ink pad; hand-drawn eyes
Because one of my harvest blessings are you, my crafty friends, I have a little giveaway, too. It's one of my super bargain finds -- a QuicKutz embossing folder!
To qualify for the giveaway, please leave a comment on this entry. I'll select a winner with random.org on Monday, November 21, around 7am (Central). Please note I can only ship to US residents at this time.
Now it's your turn! Let's see your Harvest Blessings projects! Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project and be sure to use the colors Brown, Orange and Red as well.
