Cricut Imagine - Butterfly Kisses

Here is my 2nd project on the new Cricut Imagine.  I think this new machine just might be addictive.  I still have a lot to learn, but once I get it broke in and feeling like that old pair of sneakers...well I don't think I'll be able to leave it alone. :)  This image was print and cut from Nursery Tails.  

Every butterfly needs a little bling so I added small gems to the wings.  Look at the dimension you get by adding pop dots and folding the wings up.  I left the dragonfly flat which adds even more dimension to the popped butterflies.  I Love the look of the printed sentiment and hope to see lots more sentiments on future cartridges. You warm my heart is a stamp from Paper Trey Ink.


Another observation...you will still want your regular Cricut for those really quick projects as it does take longer on this machine when printing and cutting.  Well worth the extra time, but I can see myself bouncing back and forth from my E to this, depending on what I'm doing.  Especially when I'm working with the regular Cricut cartridges and not going to add printing.  So yes, my E will still have a place on my crafting table too. ;)

  4. What a beautiful card! I'm interested in seeing how long it takes you to run through those ink carts. Would you please post when you have to change them? That is my main concern about this machine. I am dying to know how long those ink carts last!

  7. I love this card Lisa.
    I love the softness of it.
    I am happy that you are doing Nursery Tales.
    At the beginning everyone was using the same cuts. That got boring real fast.
    Thanks for sharing your great talent.

  8. Pretty!

    Please do at least one card with another cartridge, such as Create A Critter. I'm interested in seeing how the layered color Imagine image compares with the regular layered cs image.
    Thanks.
