April Showers....

Hello Everyone!
 I want to thank all of you
who left a comment on yesterday's post... Sorry
you guys don't have the Imagine... But I figured
it out! I think! LOL Apparently.. you can not use
the Gypsy files you've already created? I don't like that
idea... And if you can I haven't figured out how... BUT...
I just Re-did what I already had saved and input it into
my Imagine/Gypsy file... Does that even make sense?
Probably not! :o) Either way I spent a good couple of
hours yesterday trying to make this card with the I and
I DID IT! YESSSS! My husband asked me how many cards
I had gotten done and I Laughed and said 1! LOL
That's not normal for me! :o) But I did get it made
and here it is... I hope you guys like it! :o)

Well what do you think? Not Bad? Eh? :o)
Ok here are the specks....

Black Card Stock - Stampin' Up
Everything else I used my Gypsy & Imagine!

Background Designer Paper was a 6x6 square using
the Imagine Shape and the Imagine More
Cartridge Dots Designer Paper
Cartridges - Pooh Font (Pooh Bear) Cut @ 3"
Using RGB Codes to color him and his Red shirt
Shirt was cut out 2x's
Pooh & Friends (Rain Drops) Cut @ 2 1/2" (4x's)
Used RGB codes to color
(Umbrella) Cut @ 2 1/2" Used RGB Codes to Color
(Umbrella top) Cut @ 2 1/2" using the Imagine More Cards
Cartridge for the designer Striped Paper
(Clouds) Cut @ 2" (2x's)
Zooballoo - (Grass) Cut @ 1" (2x's) Including the Shadow
Using RGB codes to color them green shades

Here's a side view to show you the added dimension I used...
I really wanted things to POP! :o)

I even did the inside....I used my word program
for the sentiment and I used RGB codes to
color the flowers which are from the
Create a Critter Cartridge Cut @ 1 3/4" (3x's) for the
grass/stems and (6x's) for the purple buds

 And a close up of the Dimension I did on the flowers...
It turned out better than I had pictured it and designed it! :o)

My plan is to add a sentiment in the front to
say April Showers... But I don't have that type of
stamp... Maybe I'll find a rub on or something..... :o)

I'm also putting this into a couple of Challenges:
BBTB2 - Disney Theme
My Sherri Crafts - April Showers Theme
Fantabulous Cricut - April Showers (Create a
project using an Umbrella or Hat)

I hope you guys like it.... It took a lot of work on
my part and I'm happy with the outcome... See ya
back here tomorrow with another crafty project!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

ok you need to tell me how to get my images from the gypsy to the I without cutting before I color them.. do i have to upload my I carts to the gypsy and do all of the design on the gypsy?

Thanks for visiting my blog.. I look forward to a video tutorial if you do one.. Also I am able to cut straight from my gypsy, that is just images not on the imagine side colored in or anything.. I haven't even played with that function yet.
