Hello

Happy Tuesday!  It's a beautiful day here...warm and sunny.   Which matches the card I created for the Action Wobbles blog.  


I used Miss Kate's Sun in the Clouds file.  I used the sun's rays in my Silhouette software to create a stencil for the background, inked in Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide, and then inked the bottom with Salty Oxide Distress Oxide. 

I cut the sun and clouds out of MFT and Bazzill card stock.  The clouds are on several layers of foam tape to allow the sun to wobble.  



The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Onyx black in and heat embossed in clear.

Miss Kate Cuttables' March FB Challenge

It's challenge time for Miss Kate Cuttable FB group.  The theme is Clover/Shamrock. 
  

For my project, I created myself a March t-shirt.  I used the clover from Miss Kate's Leprechaun file.  I wanted a distressed style so I hit up Google.  I found a way to do it in Silhouette DE.  


 I cut the clover out of Siser easyweed.  I added lucky from Miss Kate's St. Patrick's Day Word Set.


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter your creation over on in the FB group.

Lucky to Know You

Happy Thursday!  It's March and Spring is on it's way....I hope!  We have had such an unusually brutal Winter here in Wisconsin.  Wishing we were in a warmer climate.  :P  I just keep telling myself  'Spring is coming, Spring is coming.' 

And in the Spirit of Spring and in honor of March and St. Patrick's Day, I have a card to share with you today. 



My card is a total copy of Kristina Werner's card.  (You can find it here.)  I just love her creations.  They are so visually stunning.  

For my card, I watercolored a piece of Canson watercolor paper with Gansai Tambi watercolors.  Then I cut out the sentiment with my Cameo 3 and Miss Kate's Miss Millie Font.  

I cut out a couple of clovers from Miss Kate's Leprechaun cut file.   I watercolored them with gold shimmer paint.  


The panel was adhered to a card base made from grey MFT cardstock.  I added a line of Stickles around the panel. 

The inside was simply stamped with Hero Arts ink and a sentiment from a CardzTV stamp in my stash.

Action Wobble March Challenge

It's time for our first challenge at Action Wobbles.  

Our theme this month is St. Patrick's Day.  


How cute is this leprechaun?

I just knew this little guy deserved to be on an Action Wobble.  



You can find the leprechaun over at Miss Kate Cuttables here.  

I cut my leprechaun out of MFT card stock with my Silhouette Cameo 3.  After I assembled him, I added Spectrum Noir glitter pen to his hat, Spun Sugar Stickles to his jacket, and glossy accents to his shoes.  


After I assembled the card base from using an old WPlus9 die, MFT stitched fishtail flag dies, WPlus9 enamel dots (no longer available) and an Authentique Natural 6x6 paper pad from my stash.  



I stamped the inside with CardzTV stamp (not sold anymore).

Mardi Gras Challenge

Happy Monday!   

It's time for a new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables.  

The challenge theme is Mardi Gras.

When I think of Mardi Gras, I think of flashy golds, purples, and greens.  For the challenge I created a card to celebrate.  


For my focal panel, I used the diamond pattern from Miss Kate's Spring Borders Set cut out of purple and green card stock.  I adhered that to a white panel.  The panel was a bit plain, so I embossed it with holographic embossing powder.  


I cut some feathers from Miss Kate's Feather Set from gold card stock.  They were adhered with glue dots.  And accented with some twine.  


The panel was then adhered to a gold panel, same as the feathers card stock.  

The sentiment was created using an Ellen Hutson Alphabet stamp set and heat embossed on vellum.  


For the inside, I added a gold leaf.  The card base is a white linen paper.

Cupid Tree Top

Happy Thursday!!

It's my day to post over at Miss Kate Cuttable's blog.  

My DT project is a tree top for our Valentine's Tree.  We were away from home over the holidays with no room for a real tree or any big decorations..so I told hubby that I was going to have a Valentine's tree.  

I put the tree up but didn't have a topper.  With all the weather that we have had here in the midwest, I haven't gotten to any stores to see if there is anything of use.  So I decided to make something.  Hubby wanted a cupid so off to Miss Kate's files I went.   And I found Miss Kate's Cupid cut file.   It was perfect. 


I cut the file from WPlus9 Cupids Bow Card Stock (which is not available any more).  It was a perfect match for the tree decorations.  

Then I clear heat embossed the whole cut.  You can see the shine in the photo below.  To attach it the tree, I hot glued a red pipe cleaner to the back. 

 

I know that this project seems a bit simple..but it took a lot of trial and errors to get this one.  For example, I attempted to create a glittered version, but it was a total fail! 

Thanks for stopping by.
