Today I a making some fall cards. I try to leave them blank, I can always add a sentiment later.  I really like the way this one turned out. I used Heartfelt creations dies and stamps for the flower, a Silhouette cut for the background and a concord & 9th die for the thank you.  I cut everything out of white paper and then add color from inks. I like being able to get just the right color. The background peper is from a DCWV fall stack. Hope you like this, I know I do.

Eagle Scout

Today I am getting ready for this weekend.  My grandson is receiving his Eagle Scout certificate.  We are haveing a big party and I make a card I found in the silhouette store #73859.  It turned out great and I hope he likes it.  My daughter and I are also doing stars and flags to put in mason jars for the tables. 

Here is what the card looks like.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you come again soon.

Today I am working on my stamping.  I have had this swirl stamp for years, and have just now become reacquainted with it.   I love the way this turned out, nothing special. It didn’t take a lot of time to make, I like that.  I used sizzix dies for the butterfly, label and banner, then added a few Nuvo drops for accent.

Hope you like this and stop by again sometime.

Today I thought I would work on my stach of male cards.  It has always been hard for me to put together something for a guy.  I like feathers; however, I just can't seem to get them the way I want.  I thought, breafly, that I would use real feathers.  I know I can find some down by the water, I see them all the time. Today I am going to use a file from Silhouette design #78354. I cut everything in white card stock and then color washed the background and used embossing powder on the foreground.  I like the way it turned out and hope you do too.

Beautiful Day

I have had this stamp set for a while, I tried several times to cut the stamped images with the Cricut and the Silhouette.  I didn't have any luck. the lines are too thin and the software just couldn't make out the images. I recently purchased the dies to go with it.  This is such a lovely stamp set. I used Distress inks on the flower, leaves and pens on the little details.   I really like the way this turned out.  The saw the original design on Pinterest.  The background cut file is from Silhouette.

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

Lovely Flower

Today is a very wet cold day, so I decided to make a few cards for my stash.  I recently received several dies I purchased, just after Christmas, from eBay.  They are so nice and the cuts are wonderful. I must remember to put some sticky back on them though. They were very hard to get glued down.  There are several different dies represented in this card: Hero arts is the flower and bee, sizzix the wreath and the stems are off brand from china.

Hope you enjoy and come again soon.

Valentines Day Boxes

Sorry I didn't get these posted prior to valentines; but I was busy making so many.  My daughter needed 12 and I had to make some for the girls at the office. They turned out so cute and I had a blast making them.  The file is a little difficult, the insert for the eyes is exactly the same size as the front of the box.  I cut them down by hand on each side and the bottom; however, if you had time, you could adjust them to be a perfect match. These are both Silhouette files, dogs are #89360 cats are #89222. I enlarged the box part to fit the entire mat and used a pen to write the sentiment. It was a perfect fit for 2 mini bags of M&Ms.

Hope you like these, I am going to try and post more of my creations. So often I just make them and never post.  Have a great Monday.
