Cooking With Cricut: Spring Flowers

Happy Wednesday!  Our challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to use Spring flowers on our project -- daffodils, tulips, dandelions, etc.  After all, April showers bring May flowers!  I decided to create the topper for my May calendar.  (Click on the month to see toppers for March and April.)


I used Walk in My Garden and Cindy Loo cartridges for this project.  All of the paper is from my paper scraps stash except for the 12 x 12 background piece -- it is from a Bazzill paper pack I purchased at Michael's.

Walk in My Garden:
  • Watering can -- cut at 4 1/2" tall.
  • Gardening tools -- cut at 3 3/4" tall.
  • Daffodils -- cut at 4" tall.
  • Bleeding Heart -- cut at 2 5/8" tall.
  • Tulips -- cut at 4 1/4" tall.
  • Hyacinth -- cut at 4 1/4" tall.
  • Turtle -- cut at 2 7/8" tall.
  • Snail -- cut at 3/8" tall.
Cindy Loo:
  • Text -- cut at 2 1/4" tall.
The dragonflies are dimensional stickers by Jolee's and the butterfly is a Grand Adhesions sticker by Tim Coffey for K & Co.  A little chalk and some pen stitching added the finishing touches.

I hope that maybe I've inspired you to link up your own Spring flowers project at Cooking With Cricut -- who knows . . . you might be this week's Top Chef!   Remember:
  • You must use your Cricut or some type of die cut on your project.
  • Your Project must be a new project for this challenge and your post MUST have a link back to CWC.
  • Your entry needs to be a direct link to your project and not just your blog.
I can't wait to see what you've created. Leave me a comment and your blog address so I can come over and take a peek at what you're cooking up!

Please hop over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the rest of the Design Team has whipped up for your viewing pleasure!

What a sweet card! I especially like the daffodils. They are my favourite flower. The extra little critters are a great touch, too!
