Here is the card I made this month:
 I must admit, somehow I didn't order this in advance.  I have the May SOTM but not April.  However, since some of the shapes are available through Cricut and I love rainbow cards, I just made the balloon shape in three sizes using the Artiste fonts.  There is a 1", 1.5" and 1.75" cutout.  I then used colors to trace the shapes.
Here is a detail shot:

Here are the materials:
I also cut out a butterfly to create negative space on the card.  Affixed to the butterfly are grey gems.  The ribbon is double tied.  This card allows for a saying on the inside (which I would have if I was organized and had the stamp set).

So, although using the borders in the stamp set are easier to ink and stamp randomly, there are alternatives for additional shapes using cricut cut outs!

Continue enjoying more ideas, using this stamp set, by joining Maureen O'Sullivan  at her blog.


  1. I love that we have coordinating shapes found on our cricut cartridges.

  2. Great idea! Love how we have so many options.

  3. I love your out of the box thinking! It's super cute. I might have to lift it. ;-)

  4. Love this card!! I have seen random background stamping done with the more square bubble, love the look with the round one & so creative using the Cricut cut to make it look like you used the stamp!

  5. You are a girl after my own heart! I love how your improvised on this!! Absolutely delightful!!


I appreciate your feedback - it helps me grow!
