Creating with Joy's Life and Cri-Kit pens!

Happy Saturday!

Welcome to Joy's Life Stamps 
monthly 
blog hop!


Today we're creating with Joy's Life Stamps & Cri-Kit gel pens!
I used a sentiment from Joy's Life clear stamps (Sweet Popsicle Puns) and my Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge! 
Joy's Life.com

I LOVE all the colors available in these pens, they match my papers perfectly!!  (the pens are also available for your Silhouette, eclips & Pazzles too!)



If you've arrived here from Patty's blog, you're right on track!  If you need to start at the beginning for all the hop details & Prize info, hop over to Joy's blog!

Your next stop is Ashley!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Blessings!

Such a pretty scene card. Great touch with the added bling, like stars in the sky.

never used Cri-Kits only because I don't own any.

I really like the card. I also have never used Cri-Kits before. I have the regulaer markers but they are too thick for some things. These would work nicely.

Love how you did the cityscape with the Cri-Kits pens. Very nice card; I like the bling on it, too. Yes, I have used Cri-Kits pens and I really like them. I should use them more often as I love the detail you can get with them; I just don't always remember that I have them. TFS and thanks for a chance to win!

Great use of Cri-Kit pens. I used them when I first bought them, but somehow in several moves of the craft room, I lot my pen holder. Will have to replace soon. Thanks

Just Me said...

nice card. I have several sets of the Cri-Kit pens but have only use the glitter set. They are great for outlining before cutting.
