The Queen's Royal Court Featuring Cri-kits Gel Pens!

Welcome to the Queen's Royal Court Hop featuring Cri-kits Gel Pens!  I'm so excited to show these pens,  I was so surprised just how easy these were to use too!  This is a very long post so I'm going to get right to it.  I also want you to know that this was the first time that I used Copics (I did this project prior to doing yesterdays post)!

The Cri-Kits gel pens are precision made for use in the Cricut and most other die cutting machines. When inserted in place of the blade cartridge, these pens can transfer any image to your paper. With 40 color choices, there is a color to match your latest project.

change cutting blade for pen holder

on my gypsy I created a Santa inside a blackout frame (Christmas gypsy download)

stampin up paper (I wanted a stamp quality paper)

push cut as normal, but it will draw out the image instead

I wanted the frame drawn too, so when I cut out the frame layer with colored paper, it would layer properly
(do not unload mat)

delete santas, or if you want to keep this file, then create another layer in the gypsy in the exact place

I deleted the santa's.  still don't unload mat. carefully change the pen holder and return cutter. if you don't delete the santa it will cut over it.

cut just the frame.  then cut a frame layer in gold.  I used copics to color and Martha Stewart tinsle for the hat.
