Diva's Favorite Cartridge Spotlight

Today we are trying something new here at Die Cuttin' Divas. We are spotlighting a Diva's favorite cartridge and Candy agreed to go first. We hope you enjoy!

Hey everyone, it's Candy!
I'm here today at the Die Cuttin' Divas blog to showcase a cartridge that is a favorite of many crafters, Create a Critter. This cartridge is so versatile and not to mention so super cute!! There is everything from dinosaurs, insects, puppies and kittens and every critter in between. There is something for every occasion and holiday. Not to mention it layers so easily. That was very helpful when I was starting out making cards.

Here are some of the cards I have made with this great cartridge:
Click on any of the pics to go to the original post. I apologize, some of these cards were made when I first started blogging, so I didn't list the sizes in the post. For standard A2 size cards most images can be cut between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2, depending on the look you are after.

This first card is recent for a challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas-Squirrel Appreciation Day. She was cut at 3 1/2 inches.

This little dino card was the second card I ever made.

My co-worker(Laurie) gave me some of my favorite candies, so I made this little card to thank her. 

This one for my daughter Carlie. 

This little bear was for hubby. My first attempt at a masculine card. It needed buttons for sure. LOL!
I made this little card for my "niece" Amy. She loves cows

 I made this one for my Bestie Bonnie! Little bears cut at 3 inches. I love this little panda.

This little puppy was cut at 2 1/2 inches. For my brother Chris.
Brothers, Sisters, Mothers, Fathers, Friends, Co-workers, Children. This cartridge is for everyone! Create a Critter is a card maker's go-to cartridge. You will never get bored with this one. I hope you enjoyed my showcase today.

Don't forget about our weekly challenge. You still have time to enter the Pick Two Colors challenge and we have a great sponsor, Cute as a Button, this week.

Take Care and Keep Creating,

Create a Critter is one of my favorites also. I made some cuts and put them on sticks so my grand daugher could use then in a pupit show. She loved them. Great cards thanks for the inspiration.

I totally agree! I've used Create A Critter more than any other cartridge. It is so cute and fits any occasion! You can't make a bad card with this cartridge!

Thanks for the inspiration,

Cannot go wrong with a cartridge that has Bees & Pandas and so much more. Create a Critter is such a wonderful cartridge.
