Upcoming Schedule this week and Tea Cup Imagine Card

Here's a quick card I made using the Imagine More cartridge that comes with the Imagine machine!

It is sized at 4-1/4" x 5-3/4" and was made by first printing and cutting out the tea cup, the scalloped oval behind it (filled in with blue color) and the scalloped rectangle (also filled in with color from the designer patterns).  I cut the cup at 3", the oval at 3-1/2" and the rectangle at 4".

I used black and white pens to add stitching on the tea cup image.  That image consists of the tea cup, yellow background and green outline and cannot be divided into layers.  Cardstock was by Core'dinations; ribbon and button by Papertrey Ink.  Happy Birthday stamp by Darcie's.  Text paper by October afternoon.  Scalloped lace border punch by Martha Stewart.

Scalloped tea cup was pop dotted onto the card for added dimensional interest.

Now for the schedule this week:

Tuesday:  Big HSN kick-off for the Imagine Machine with showings at 12:01 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. (EST) and more!  Check HERE for the HSN schedule! There will be 24 hours of crafting/scrapbooking!!

For those of you concerned this will become an Imagine blog only, let me reassure you that I will NOT be doing that.  However, I do need to get some information and projects up about the machine so that my informational data on the site is useful and up to date.  So, bear with me while I get all that loaded.

Have a great week!
