Easter Treats

Easter's on it's way and I have a  couple of more treats and a card to share!

The first is a 3D carrot from Teresa Collins 'Bunnies and Chicks' Cricut Exclusive.

Easy to fill with Easter goodies!

This was designed and cut using CCR and my Expression.  The carrot is 10.917-9.00.
Although there is a layered bow image with this exclusive I decided to use the scalloped bow on the Cricut Exclusive - 3D Bows, cut at 8.13-4.29 using my Gypsy (Yes, the exclusive is now linked on my Gypsy too!)
I layered the patterned paper "Smile" Floral orange paper by My Minds Eye over white cardstock and then added Glitz 'Stardust' glitter gel by Close To My Heart on the scallops.

I topped the carrot with a  green card stock border, fringed with Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors.
I embellished the top of the carrot with a border using Martha Stewarts Doily Punch and added  Recollections Pearl Stickers in the center of each doily.

The egg label is My Creative Time's 'Hello Spring Stamp Set with Layering Egg dies and 'Color Me Happy' For Happy Easter.  I popped between the layers and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots Folder. I then added a little bow using Baker's Twine.

Next is a little Easter Basket

This was all made using another Cricut Exclusive, 'Easter Basket'
I'm loving being able to use the fill mode in CCR and choose the colors for my image. It really makes it easy to place the correct paper color on your mat when you are ready to cut.

The chick and egg image is cut at 3"

This is the other side.

Happy Easter is cut at 2.208-1.417/ Shadow 2.194-1.417
Label is   black cut at 3.25-2.264
green  3.014-2.083
white  2.75-1.903

I used Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors for the grass and Martha Stewart Doily Punch border on the handle.

The basket was cut at 11.00-10.62

And last is a Easter Card

I used the cute little bunnies from 'Hello Spring Stamp Set' by My Creative Time. The egg is from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I quilled the carrots and used Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors for the carrot top. Baker's Twine holds the little label from the Ap cart and stamped 'Happy Easter' using 'Color Me Happy' stamp set by My Creative Time.

I'm happy to say my Expression 2 is working great with my wifi adapter and I'm really enjoying using it with CCR. I just got a few more Imagine carts and I'll be playing with that next. I'm also going to be trying out the new Cinch I received...I'll let you know how that goes!

Thanks for stopping by
