Hi all,

I have 12 cards ready to mail for the #Cards4Love-Christmas in July project.  Ken and George from Crafts By Two are organizing the event.  If you would like to take part you can find the information at  http://bit.ly/Cards4Love.  You can also make cards for the soldiers to receive.  This is a wonderful way to give to two very special groups of people.

Kite Card for Operation Write Home’s Midweek Throwdown: Go Fly A Kite!

Hi all,

Operation Write Home requested we make a card with a kite for their Midweek Throwdown: Go Fly A Kite!  I thought this cute bird flying a kite was perfect for it.  I used the cut and print feature of my Cameo to cut the design.  I added lots of additional color with Tombow dual brush pens.  I also added some glimmer with Glossy Accents.  The card is an A2 size .  I printed the sentiment using my computer.

Please consider making cards for this great organization.  The soldiers also enjoy getting any hero mail.

Shaped Birthday Card

Hi all,

Today I made a shaped birthday card using LD Birthday Fishes file.  I brought the image of the Octopus to the Cameo mat.  Then I made 2 offsets to get the layers for the image  to sit on.  I duplicated the image and moved to the side.  Then I created a box for the image to be welded to.  Once that was done, I mirrored the image to the left and welded the two shapes to form the card.  I used the cut and print feature to create the water with the sentiment.  I  separated the duplicated image ( saved from above) and cut each layer out. I then cut all the layers out and assembled the card.  I was able to match the colors for the layers by using the eyedropper and color bucket in the silhouette.

Operation Write Home Memorial Day BlogHop

memdaybloghop_2014

Hi all,

Today is Operation Write Home’s Memorial Day BlogHop. You can follow along here. http://wp.me/p2kUr6-4o6     We were asked to make a card for the hop using the colors red, white and blue.  I used this cute little girl  and part of a card base from the silhouette on-line store.  I used my Cameo to color and then print and cut the design.  As this was a paper piecing image, I had to assemble and add color to each piece.  It was easier than cutting each piece out of card stock as some of the pieces are very small.  I used a CardzTv stamp for the missing you sentiment.  I hope you all enjoy the hop!

Hulk Card for Operation Write Home

Hi all,

I hope you all had a great Easter.  The weather here was perfect and my grandchildren had a blast looking for their eggs.  Spending time with family and making memories is what it is all about.

I made this card with SVG Cutting files Hulk image.  I love their images. They come together easily.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the image and the print and cut feature to print and cut the sentiment.  I think this will be perfect for a little boy and will add several of these to my box of cards for Operation Write Home.  It is an A2 size card and the image was cut at approximately 3 inches.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks on the edges. The gate is a Martha Stewart punch.

Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown:The Nature of Christmas

2013-10-10 16.23.30Hi all,

This week we were challenged to use an element of nature on our cards for our heroes to send home to their love ones.  I used the snowmen from Dollar Graphics Depot file called Frosty Long Stocking.  I think the images and their sentiments are adorable.  The scallop frame is from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge. I love this cartridge. It has some really nice shapes.
