Cooking With Cricut Challenge #67- Something New

Welcome To Funky Cards
Challenge #67- Something New
As we begin this new year, we would like to challenge you to use something new that you just received as a gift.  Maybe you got a new Cricut cartridge, some new bling or some new paper that you are ready to try working with!!  Well, now's the time.  You only need to use one new thing and please remember to tell us what that new thing was.  As usual, your project needs to include a Cricut cut out somewhere on the project.  If you don't have any new products, you can use something that was recently received or purchased:)  Have fun.  That is what is most important:)

I always write thank you cards after Christmas to show my appreciation to those who gave me a gift.  I decided to make my thank you cards my challenge project this week.
(Click on the photo to enlarge).
These cards were all made with the same new paper stack, "Fancy Free" from KI Memories, that I received as a gift from my mom.  I love how the solid colors all coordinated with the patterned paper.  There are so many nice soft colors.

This "Thank You" comes from the Tear Drop Cricut cartridge.  The letters were individually glued to the orange squares.

"Thanks" was cut out using the Robotz Cricut cartridge.  The flowers were hand cut from the paper and attached to a hand made border.  Pop dots were used to pop them up for added dimension and interest.

Stamping is always fun!  This "Thank You" stamp can be found at the Pink By Design Store.  The elephant can be found on the Zooballoo Cricut cartridge.

Jaded Blossom carries this "Thank You" stamp.  The photograph is a bit fuzzy but the stamp looks great in person.  The butterflies were cut from the Kate's ABC's Cricut cartridge.

This "Thank You" stamp can be found at the Pink By Design Store.  The big giraffe was cut from the Zooballo Cricut cartridge and the little giraffe is a brad.

Jaded Blossom also carries these "Thank Hoo" and "owl" stamps. 

I already mentioned that the paper was new.  In addition, the black, grey, pink, and yellow paper flowers are also new.  I can't wait to keep crafting.  Having a break from school is great.  I hope you all had a wonderful New Year and are looking forward to a fantastic 2012:)
