Wonderful Wilderness Blog Hop - Day 2!!

Welcome to Created By Cori's Wonderful Wilderness Blog Hop!

In this hop, you will see projects featuring Cricut cartridges using all things found in the Wonderful Wilderness! We hope you enjoy our blog hop today!

If you have just hopped onto the tour, please start at Cori's blog: If you came from Melody then you are in the right place!

For my Day 2 project, I again turned to one of my favorite carts...Campin Critters!!

I just love the scenes on this cart!! I chose to use the wild west for my wilderness project today. I cut the background at 4". I embossed the mountains with the Distressed Lines embossing folder, the cacti with Swiss Dots and the desert with Seeing Spots. I attached each layer with foam tape.

The happy rattler is from Animal Kingdom and I added googly eyes.

Yes, I know there aren't bears in the desert, but this guy is so sdorable and I thought he would look so cute peeking around the cactus...hiding from the happy rattler :) "Sss up" is from K Andrew Designs All About Animals stamp set. Click HERE to purchase your own or to see her entire line of stamps!!

I attached the rattler with a homemade wobble so he shimmies and shakes!! If you would like to know how to make one of these, my dear friend Amy of Love to Crop has a wonderful tutorial that you can find HERE!!

  50. Lisa Darling, this is so clever!!! I love that cartridge too, but have only got to use it a few times so far. Did you weld the images to a cactus or are the images like that? I remember critters hiding behind trees, but not cacti! Can you tell me how you did it? Also, is the cactus cut from the same cart? Please email me or leave a comment on my blog. Would love to get the directions for this! Honey, I am so sad you won't be on the team this term. We were blessed to have you as a member. Please, do keep in touch! I value your friendship greatly and I want to make sure that we can still maintain that after you leave FCCB. Your talent always amazes and inspires me!

    Lots of love,
    Amy Jo
