Thursday September 18, 2014 with My Cricut Craft Room and Design Team- Emboss Metal, Create a Steampunk Trunk Gift Box With Shellie


Thursday September 18, 2014 with My Cricut Craft Room and Design Team- Emboss Metal

Create a Steampunk Trunk Gift Box With Shellie
If you have teenagers in the house, then chances are you are familiar with the term Steampunk. In short, Steampunk is a literary genre and can be described as being inspired by 19th century industrial civilization, with elements of fantasy, and futuristic inventions. Think of Jules Verne. I was inspired to make this Steampunk Trunk gift box after I read a steam punk novel.

I created this Steampunk gift box using these Cricut cartridges: Box it Up, Robot Party, Ornamental Iron 2 and Sentimentals. I also used a free svg file, and an embossing folder.




Materials
Cricut Explore cutting system
Aluminum- I used pop cans
2 sheets of DCWV  black cardstock
1 sheet of  Hot off the Press crocodile specialty cardstock
Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder
Glue of your choice


I started by cutting out a box from the Cricut cartridge "Box It Up" out of the black cardstock. There are many to choose from. I cut the box as large as I could, I wanted it big.  I cut the top out of the black crocodile cardstock.




I cut out everything except the box from aluminum pop cans. I used a free dragon svg file from openclipart.org.  I cut and embossed him using the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. I imported the lock image from the Cricut cartridge Sentimentals. After I cut the lock, I embossed it using the score tool on the Explore.  I used a permanent marker to color the  lock gold. Note: Make sure your mat is super sticky and clean and the aluminum is secure or the aluminum will catch and tear on the blade as it cuts. 



Next, I cut out my gears using the Cricut Cartridge "Robot Party"



I welded the number 7 inside this gear and then embossed it with the same embossing folder as the dragon.



I then created the straps for the trunk by welding 3 images together.  In Cricut Design Space I inserted these images: a square, and from the Cricut "Ornamental Iron 2" cartridge the Fleur de Lys Ornament image, and the Iron Swirl Ornament. I then placed them on the square which I re-sized and then I welded them together.




And finally I laid everything out and glued it on the box! 



It's ready to fill with a surprise and give to someone special!
 Go On, Craft On!

New Cartridges in the subscription?? 123 Sesame, Bits and Peices, Home Organization, Photo Props Through the Year, Sophisticated Invitations


I see 123 Sesame, Bits and Peices, Home Organization, Photo Props through the year,
Sophisticated Invitations, all on my list of linked cartridges... Things that make you go HMMMMMM

So I was just looking at my Cricut.com account. By going to cricut.com on the top right and clicking LOG IN --Then I clicked on Linked Cartridges and it showed Sesame 123 .... 
Which is a full color set of images.... Hmmmm.  
It is not coming up in Design Space or Craft Room..... But HMMMM I wonder if it will become available with Print to Cut.??? 

Very curious for Sept 22 when Print to Cut is open to everyone.... I can only hope for more "Imagine" cartridges. Or maybe it is like the images that are in full color for design space... 
5 more days!!! 

Does anyone else see it in your list on cricut.com of linked cartridges?

Wednesday September 17, 2014 with My Cricut Craft Room and Design Team- Use Embossing Powders



Wednesday September 17, 2014 with My Cricut Craft Room and Design Team- 
Use Embossing Powders

I made this video a while back on how to use Embossing Powders... 
Curious about how to use them and some stamping techniques?   Click here. 









I helped my friend (she cheered me on while I crafted) make her very first box card for her sister's birthday!  Included, lots of purple, love, and an embossed Happy Birthday sentiment in silver.  The card itself was a free file for Design Space.  The flowers, butterflies, and nesting scalloped circles are dies for the QuicKutz Revolution.
