Guest Designer... From "Owl" House...

Post  Andy on Sun Aug 28, 2011 1:26 am

Hi Everyone.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Andy and I'm your guest designer for today..
I was truly honered to be asked by Liz way back in January to guest on Cricutolics. And, although I've had 8 Months to prepare it's only recently that I've actually knuckled down to get something made.. Ain't that always the way!!

Now, I would love to be able to show you a picture of the project I have made, but for some reason I am unable to upload it.. This could just be me and my very poor PC knowledge which is a distict possibility!!
Liz, are you able to help?

So, in the meantime I have added the card to my Blog, so you can always take a look at it there until it appears on here..

Thanks for taking a look.

Here goes Andy with a bit of assistance:-

Back in January I was asked by Liz from Cricutolics to be a guest designer on her website.. Obviously, I said yes, as I think it's such an honor to be asked to showcase my work other than here on my Blog... As Cricutolics is a forum for those of us who have been bitten by the Cricut bug my project obviously had to be Cricut relate..So, here is what I came up with.
I cut out the Birdhouse shape from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge @ 3.75". Cutting the shape in Grey card stock using the Blackout and Silhouette functions and the "normal" image in Pink card stock.

Layering the images together with some Pinflair Gel to give them some dimension.

I then punched a border in White card stock using the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch,

adding it to the base of each of the 3 Birdhouses that I had cut to act as snow...

I then cut out a few Branch shapes using the Mariannes Creatables Pine Tree Branch die (LR0181) using some Green Glitter card.

And then added them to my base card which I had already placed my Birdhouses onto.

Next, I cut out these little Go Kreate Owl figures adding some googlie eyes to give them some character,

before popping each one on it's perch and finishing off with a "From Our House" peel off as my sentiment...

So, there you go.. Not only a Christmas card but I think the concept could be used as a New Home / Moving card too?!.. And, for all you Cricut fans out there, just look at all the new Cricut Cartridges that will be winging their way to us at Pinnacles very soon...

Anyway, it's good to be back and hope to see you again soon.
Thanks for checking us out.
Andy

A little more help for you Andy, I hope I have got them all in and in the correct place and order, apologies if I haven't, just let me know what changes you need to make and I will help do it.
