Close to My Heart Artiste Swing Birthday Card

Hi,

I made this Artiste Swing Birthday Card for my sister who is turning 60 tomorrow. I used the Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge for all the cuts including the number 60 and sentiment inside. I am entering this card in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Create a project using at least one Cricut cut letter or number.

Sorry if the pics are not the best.  The colors are so pretty in person.

Operation Write Home VCMP Final Challenge

Hi, The final challenge is to use a negative of a die or punch.

2013-08-13 07.58.13I used the negative cut of my shape on the butterfly paper and stamped my sentiment in the space created when I taped it onto my card. I used a Martha Stewart stamp for the butterfly, colored it with Tombow Dual Brush pens and hand cut it out.

Hi,

I made this fall card for Operation Write Home VCMP challenge #7.  We were to make a card with a fall theme with an I Love You, Miss You or Thinking About You sentiment.  I actually made two versions with different papers.  The papers were from a pad I bought last year at Michaels.  I used the  cut and print feature on my silhouette for the cute little bear from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I embossed using the pinking folder from Cuttlebug.  I plan on making a few of these to add to my box of cards for OWH.

Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown X 3

Hi all,

I know I have been away from this blog for a while but I have had a lot happen. I had another grandchild born which was such a blessing. I spent a lot of time with my daughter after the birth.  I also had surgery to remove my gall bladder.  I am feeling so much better now. Needless to say I have been itching to get back into my craft room.

Operation Write Home put up another challenge this week. They are challenging us to use something on our card three times, an embellishment, stamped image  etc.  for our heroes to send home to their family and friends!

I made this thank you card using my silhouette.  The flower-pot and sentiment were from their on-line store.  I used paper from my stash and flowers from Michael’s. I love the colors.

Please keep the people in Oklahoma in your thoughts.  They need all the prayers and help we can give.20130522_152808

I hope you all have a great week and enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend.

 

Silhouette Birthday Swing Card for Operation Write Home

Hi,

I have been busy making cards for Operation Write Home.  This week’s challenge was to make a card with a fun fold.  I chose a swing birthday cake card that I  got from the 2013-02-21 13.54.42 on-line store.  I decorated the front of the card with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I used the cut outs for the cake as masks for the front.   The icing layer on the front of the card was a  Martha Stewart stamp I purchased during Halloween. I love using my stash for things other than what they were intended for.  I used Recollections paper for the base and2013-02-21 13.53.36 insi2013-02-21 13.54.26de of the card.  I added a little stickles to the candles on the front.

I had a lot of fun making this card.

I made this card for the Dynamic Duo’s color challenge. We were to use the color combination turquoise and black. It is hard to see in my picture but the outfits were colored with turquoise and black. The stamps are from Close to My Heart.  I used Tombow dual brush pens and Recollections paper. I love the sentiment. It is sooo true. LOL

Valentine’s Day Card

Hi,

Today I made a Valentine’s Day card for my mom.  She loves her coffee so I thought this would be perfect for her. I am enclosing a Dunkin Donuts card inside (her favorite place).  I used my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from the on-line store to create the cup. The punch is a Martha Stewart heart border punch. I also used Martha Stewart red embossing powder for the sentiment. The paper is from K&Company. I used My Creative Time Gift Card Sentiments for the stamp.

This was so easy to put together. I cut two of the cups, one in white and one in the print, and paper pieced them together. I used pop dots to adhere the cup to give it some dimension.

I am entering this card in Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific 2013-02-06 09.42.01-3Tuesday Challenge and Dynamic Duos Color Challenge.

 

Male birthday card and OWH challenge using Silhouette

Hi,

Here is another birthday card I made for the OWH birthday challenge. I find male themed cards very hard to make. I think this one works great for a male birthday card. I used my silhouette and the print and cut feature to create the car card.  I purchased the car shape card from silhouette online store. If you haven’t tried the cut and print feature, I highly recommend giving it a go. There are 2013-02-04 14.42.112013-02-04 14.41.43a lot of videos on you tube that explain how it works. It really is very easy. The stamps for my card are from Close to My Heart. I paper pieced them on the card. I really like the way the card came out and plan on making one for my brother-in-law with his name on the license plate instead of USA.
