Hey Everyone! Ken here with another kreation and for the first time I used all 3 of my crafting machines to make my birthday card for my niece. That is right. All 3 cards can play nice in your craft room without getting into an all out war. So for this card I used my BROTHER SCAN N CUTSILHOUETTE CAMEO and the CRICUT EXPLORE. This was also my first project to use my all new 12 X 12 wide format printer EPSON ARTISON 1430 to print my paper from digital paper. So lets get to the project:

I found the digital paper at a website called Sassy Designs and the digital paper pack was called Rhapsody and you can see the whole collection by CLICKING HERE. I printed this paper out on 12X12 paper using my new EPSON ARTISON 1430. I am so amazed by the quality of this printer and how amazing the outcome was. I am very excited to keep testing this printer out and making a YouTube review video on this Wide Format Printer since this seems to be a current rend in the digital world. I Used my BROTHER SCAN N CUT to cut the paper into my card shape. I found that the BROTHER SCAN N CUT is an easy machine to use to cut basic shapes since they are preprogramed in on their display on the machine. I will also be uploading a review on this machine in the next few days and my experience with it. 

Once I had the card base cut I used my SILHOUETTE CAMEO to Print and Cut the designs that I got from PPBN designs. The Print and Cut feature is not amiable for the CRICUT EXPLORE yet, however it is rumored to be released in September of 2014 and I look forward to testing this out and releasing a video to see how it compares to the Silhouette Cameo's Print and Cut feature. For the genie's cuffs and and bottle I used the GOLD PEARL PENS to give it a nice shine. I raised the both of the pieces up using 3D FOAM SQUARES and the genie is on a WOBBLES. For the illusion of fog I just used some glue and cotton ball that I shredded. 

For the sentiment I used the CRICUT EXPLORE and their amazing Draw and cut feature. I love how easy it is to write with this machine. I used the font found on the CRICUT CREATIVE MEMORIES STORK CARTRIDGE. I used the CRICUT METALLIC PEN SET to write the sentiment ".....WISH BIG" in gold pen. I finished the card off using the GOLD PEARL PENSKIWI PEARL PENS, and LIGHT BLUE PEARL PEN at the top of the card. 

I love how this card turned out and using PPBN designs you can easily make this card in about 20 minutes. Everything was used with the following supplies below! Thanks for taking a looking at todays kreation. Come back tomorrow to see what kreation I come up with next!



  1. Great card! Hope you enjoy your new room!

  2. Nice! I hadn't heard of the Kiwi pens before. When the ink dries, is it pliable or does it get pretty solid? Also about how long did the dots you did on the card take to dry? I really like the 3D feature of it. Looks like it could replace enamel dots. Love getting such good ideas on the blog. I'll be sure to buy through your link so you get some credit for it :)

  3. I love this card Ken! The cotton at the bottom for the smoke is such a fantastic element!
