Valentine Card 2

Today I am making another valentine card. I got this one from the design store and then used digital paper from Miss Kate and 2 others. I have really been into using print and cut lately. I just like the way you can always find the right colors to fit my mood that day. I have several sets from Miss Kate. I took an envelope file and cut the top off, trimmed the sides, added color and then cut as 2 pieces.  I really like the way it turned out. Thanks for coming by, hope to see you again soon.  The Silhouette store file numbers are Card 176947, hearts 25254 and envelope 50777.

Vinyl

It has been a while between post.  I have been busy with cutting vinyl initials and names for cups. I purchase most of my vinyl in bulk from Amazon; however, I picked up some foil during a sale. It looks fabulous.  It cut and applied wonderfully.  I have a big cold-1 cup and just had to share how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you come again.

Give Thanks

Today I am working on my card for fall. I love this time of year, just like spring. Although it has very hot here for this time of year. I like this SU stamp set, full of blessings. I used a maple leaf design from the silhouette store, sorry I could not find the item number.
I put a 4 x 5.25 card front on my mat and then subtracted the cut. I took the leaf cut and stamped my image and them popped it up with some mounting tape. The sentiment is also SU, hand-penned holidays. Of course I inked all the edges and added some imaginisce heat dots.

Hope you enjoyed this card and come again soon to see what I am working on.


Here is a different version of this card made into a shaker.

Halloween Card

Today I am making a card for the grand kids.  I like the way this turned out. I followed the outline from Cards in Envy challenge (purple and green). The design is a download from Miss Kate Cutables. I changed it up a bit to add the purple glitter paper. My Explore had no problems with the heavy paper, turned out wonderful. The background cut is from Recollections, I picked it up on sale at Michaels. I inked it with Grape Crush (SU), and added a background print from Cloud 9 designs (I don't know where I got this, I have had it for a while).   This is a 5x7 card because of the background cut. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, I used some opaque sparkle embossing powder from recollections.

Hope you like this a come again to see what I have done. Should be starting on Christmas cards soon.

Rhinestone shirt


Today I am trying something new with my Silhouette. I told my granddaughter I would make her a volleyball shirt for her birthday. I watched a few wonderful videos at the rhinestone world.com and learned a few thing about heat vinyl and rhinestones. I watched a few videos about how to do it with the Cricut; however, you have to have a separate program to develop the cut file in to import to Design Space.  I don’t have any of those, I know inscape is free; but, I will have to read up on it first.  

I purchases the t shirt at Michaels and the rhinestones at Hobby Lobby. They have a limited selection, so I ordered some others at the rhinestone world site. The font is Impact and the die cut is #5833 for Silhouette store. This was fun, although it took me 3 tries to get the rhinestones in the right placement on the shirt.  But it turned out wonderful. She is turning 12 and it will look great on her.

Hope you enjoyed this post and will come again soon.

Things with Wings

Hello, Hello:
It has been a long time since my last post. I have been very busy with the garden and grandchildren this spring and summer. Once the weather turned into the 100's the garden stopped making anything.  I have a lot of caned veggies for this winter. I hope to continue to work on getting my card stack built up.  I need to start on Christmas cards, hope to have one for you to look at tomorrow.

So, I have turned back to crafting. I love making cards and seeing the persons face when the open it.  I found a few items in the design store and really liked the way they fit together.  I went with a single layer card and then added the retro circle frame (item 4279) and Mason jar (item 124055).  I had some butterfly stickers that added just the right touch.


Thanks for stopping by hope you come again soon.
