WYEGW - Use Cricut Markers or Gel Pens

For Today's Would You Ever Guess Wednesday
we were asked to use either Cricut Markers
or Gel Pens to draw our images
instead of cutting them.

I really ran with this theme
and made 3 cards.
I have only used my markers once before
and have never used my gel pens!!

All 3 of my cards were made using the
Silhouette Feature on the
A Quilted Christmas Cartridge.
All pattern paper is DCWV.

First up is Santa from page 31.
So sorry, I did not write down
what size I drew these at.
I think Santa is at 4"

I added some Xmas Red Stickles
and Onyx Liquid Pearls.

I filled in his beard and fur
on this hat and coat with Liquid Applique
and then heated it with my heat tool
after letting it dry overnight.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time's
"From Our Family to Yours" stamp set
stamped onto her Stiched Oval die.
I heat embossed with Zing Embossing powder.

Next up are the presents from page 76.
I thing these were drawn at 6" in length.
Just love the way this card came out!!

I added Silver and Turquoise Stickles
and colored the presents in with various markers
and blending pen.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time's
"Card Sentiments" stamp set
embossed with Zing Embossing Powder.

Last up is the candle border from page 69.

I added more stickles and Liquid Applique.
The sentiment is from My Creative Time's
"From Our Family to Yours" stamp set,
also heat embossed!

Thanks for stopping by and please
make sure you head on over to
to see more great projects
using the Cricut Markers and Gel Pens!!
