Create with Joy's Life stamps and Cri-Kit gel pens Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome!
You should have arrived from Ashley's blog, if not make sure you start from the beginning over at Joy's blog... this is a hop you don't want to miss! 

 If you stopped by earlier, you saw that I was having trouble with blogger 
I was able to work out all the kinks and quirks after all.

I think I mentioned this before, but the Cri-Kit gel pens are awesome!! You can use them for any image/cut to give your project a different look. When I got the cartridge Summer in Paris I loved it, but never really used it because of the intricate cuts. So, hey what a neat way to put these pens to use. 
 The chair is from the Summer in Paris cartridge. The sentiment is from Joy's You're So Punny stamp set stamped with Memento ink in Bahama Blue.
 Here's a close up of the chair - I used the regular black Cri-Kit gel pen. I added liquid pearls in Bisque on the chair. 

 

Time for some blog candy! 
Since I was having problems with blogger earlier, all you have to do is just leave a comment. Easy peasy. The winner will be chosen randomly and I'll post it up next Saturday, September 1st. 


Your next stop is Megan's blog HERE

Here's a list in case you get lost, enjoy!

Very nice card! What a great way to use Cri-Kits pens to get the detail but not have to worry about fussy cutting by the machine. I'm so glad you were able to finally get Blogger to cooperate with you. TFS and thanks for a chance to win!

Love the pun AND the use of the pens. I'll have to remember that when I get frustrated with a dull blade and an intricate cut.
