Springtime Joy Wreath and Scan 'n Cut Tips

Today is the first challenge of 2021 for Team O at Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  Steph is our featured designer and she gave us some fantastic board elements to work with.

 I chose the right hand column down - pink, wreath and sparkle.

I decided to use the bunny from the Stampin' Up! set Springtime Joy.  I almost passed on this set because I don't make many Easter cards, but after thinking about it I decided the critters were pretty adorable (I do use cute critters A LOT) and could work for other occasions.  I am so happy I decided upon this set!  I combined it with the Arrange a Wreath dies (a die set I will keep forever) in a few soft shades of green and pink.  The bunny's flowered wreath looks perfect with the flowers in the die cut wreath.

Since there are no coordinating dies to the Springtime Joy set I figured I'd use my Scan 'n Cut to cut out the images.  I have a "craft area" not a craft room, so my Scan 'n Cut is put away until I need it and then set up in the kitchen. (Some day I hope to have a craft room!)  It seemed a waste of time to just cut one image so I colored a whole sheet of images.

A tip for using the Scan 'n Cut.  If you look closely, the outline is not solid in some places.  The machine needs a solid line to scan and cut correctly. Also, it seems to get confused by uncolored white interiors - like the one wreath I left empty for coloring later. To correct this, I used a pencil to complete the outlines and like filled in my bunny's wreath.  After everything was  cut I simple erased the pencil.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and will find time to join us in the challenge this week!
