Another Yummy one...

Here is my version of a card that I scraplifted from StephanieR who is on the Cricut message board. This card was also made entirely from the Yummy Imagine cartridge.

Here is another birthday card that i made. I used the Imagine More Cards cartridge for the Imagine. I bought this cartridge for a super amazing low price. For a time on Amazon.com they had this cartridge listed for $5.21. I thought it was a trick, but I decided to try and see of it would go through and yes it did. I can't believe I was able to purchase it at this price. 
All of the cuts and background paper were used from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. I loaded the cartridge onto my Gypsy and I was able to print and cut it out. I cut the images out in layers instead of using one solid design.

I am one of the lucky persons who was chosen to be a Beta Tester for the Imagine App on the Gypsy. I'm not sure what the finished application will look like, however, I will post some pictures of the Gypsy screen tomorrow on another post.

Here is a birthday card I designed on my Gypsy using the Yummy Imagine cartridge. It is was so much fun to make. The only cartridge used was the Yummy cartridge. Even though some people think the images are flat or dull, with the addition of some glossy accents, glitter, or some other embellishments you can jazz up your die cuts as much as you want.

I used the I-Rock to attach some gems to the mini starbursts that are on the pattern paper. I added glossy accents to the letters in "Make a Wish", the swirls on the cupcake wrapper and also to the sprinkles and cherry.
