Missing You Card for OWH

Hi all,

Today I made a missing you card for OWH.  The image is a print and cut from the Silhouette on line store.  The sentiment is  a stamp I purchased at Michael’s.  l have several different  missing you cards that I made and plan to include  in my box  of cards to OWH.    This card is a combination of Cameo and Cricut cuts.  I used my Cameo for the print and cut and my Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges for the mat.missing you dog20140815_100231

I am also entering this card in Pause Dream Enjoy’s Linky party.

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.

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.
