Joy’s Life Cri-kits BLOG HOP

25 Aug

Welcome to the Joy’s Life Cri-Kit  BLOG HOP.

I have made a gorgeous card to inspire you how to use these fun pens with your electronic cutting machines.

Here is the card I made which is a mixture of using the Cri-Kit pens and and then I also used a die cut butterfly to accentuate the colored design.

I am using the stamp set called Sweet Popsicle Puns.

 The drawn butterfly design is from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.

 The die cut butterflies are fro Cheery Lynn Designs.

 I had so much fun this week learning how to use the pen in my Cricut Expression.  The Cri-Kit pens open up a whole new world of possibilities.  I can’t wait to keep trying more things with the many different colors I have.

I used the Glitter Pen set to color in the butterfly and WOW, do those glitter pens shimmer!

I hope you have enjoyed my card, since it is late and I did not have time to get together any Blog Candy…
