I have been busy playing with my new Brother ScanNcut and haven't had time to blog or do much of anything else. Perhaps I should say my focus wasn't on anything but my ScanNcut.
This was a gift from a very dear friend and I am having fun although there is a "learning curve." I have to admit though, the learning curve isn't as difficult as it was with my Pazzle. After six video tutorials I was no closer to understanding the Pazzle then when I started so I gave up.
It currently sits under a desk in my office ready to be sold to anyone with a reasonable offer. I still have the packaging and several cutting file disks to go along with it, so if you know anyone interested, please refer them to me.
Well, after all my playing and using cutting files I finally returned to card-making and have finally finished my first Easter card. It is a simple but cute card; at least I think so (said with a smile). Of course I could be a bit biased so you check it out for yourself.
The recipe for this card is as follows:
Image: Mo Manning "Easter Chickie"
Ink: Spectrum Noir, Distress Inks
Paper: My Minds Eye
Greeting: Computer Generated
Embellishments: MS Border punch, SB Nestabilities, Offray Ribbon
On the inside I used the same paper but had to piece it in several areas to keep the colors coordinated with the front.
