Cooking with Cricut Challenge # 67: Something New

Hi and welcome to the first Cooking with Cricut challenge of 2012. In honor of the NEW Year, our challenge this week is to incorporate something 'new' into your project- a new technique, or new supplies or tools from goodies you might have found under the Christmas Tree. I got a Cuttlebug for Christmas and was so excited to add some embossing texture to a project! I also received some new copics (a newfound passion of mine- I'm self taught, just trying to learn all the techniques)! I used my copics to color this cute Digi from Paper Crafting World (Bear Holding Hot Chocolate). Here is my card:
I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder, and then sanded a bit to reveal the white core of the cardstock. The patterned paper is from Echo Park Winter Park Collection. The stamp is colored with copics and I added some puff paint from my snow marker for the 'cream' and some stickles on the snowflake. Here is a closer look:
The stamp sentiment is from Robin's Creative Cottage and I used a border punch from American Crafts. I hope you enjoyed my project today, and I am so excited to see all the 'new' goodies you all are using!!

I am also entering my card in the Fantabulous Cricut challenge for this week- Hot Cocoa!!  


  1. Hi Heather! Happy New Year!
    This is just such an adorable card. I love the paper and the colors you used. The image is just adorable!! My favorite part of your card is the puffy paint. I would have never thought of using that. It looks fabulous on the cupcake. Great glitter on the snowflake as well.
