Happy Halloween


The challenge theme is Black & Orange.

I created a card using Miss Kate's Halloween Window file.


I created a shaped card to show off the image.  The front panel has a combination of cut sections and written section.  I had a bit of trouble with my Silhouette cutting the smaller pieces without tearing the card stock.  So I used the sketch feature to fix that.  *wink, wink*.

I added some eyes to the bats and Black Diamond Stickles for the spider.  

I hope my granddaughter loves this card as much as I do.

Happy Halloween T-Shirt

Happy Thursday!

Can you believe it's October already???   It has been so warm here that it just doesn't seem like it's that late in the year yet.    

So to help get in the mood, I have been creating a few Halloween projects for the family.  

One of my projects have been t-shirts for the kids.  Unfortunately, only one of the three wanted a Halloween theme.  *sigh*

For this shirt I used the Happy Halloween Title file from Miss Kate Cuttables. 


 The shirt is from Joann's.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut the vinyl.  


For my first layered vinyl project ever, I love how this turned out.  And even more important, my daughter LOVES it too.

2017 Card Design Superstar Challenge


 Happy Thursday,

Have you participated in any of My Favorite Things challenges?  If not, you should!  They are fun and the products from MFT are just so cute.  

There is a big challenge ending this evening.  Its the MFT  Card Design Superstar Challenge.   The challenge has 3 categories.  

I am submitting my entries by the skin of my teeth.  Unfortunately, my husband is fighting Stage 4 Lymphoma and has to have several blood transfusions this week.  But he's doing better now.  :)

My first card is for the Clean & Simple Genius.    I'm sure my design isn't genius...have you seen any of the other entries.   They are just fabulous.  But we all have different styles and level of talent.  :)

I used the MFT BB Beast Friends stamp set, Merry Christmoose stamp set, Abstract Stencil, Wild Wisteria dye ink, Natural hybrid ink, and Smooth White Cardstock.  







My next card is for the Coloring Virtuoso.  

I used the Merry Christmoose stamp set for all the images.   The background was colored with Copics (all Toner).  I love the way the moose pops against the grey background.  



My last card is for the Innovation Masters.  
I used MFT BB Beast Friends and Toasting Greetings stamp sets along with MFT Pierced Frames and Gift Card Grooves.
I created the background with Distress Oxides.   My first time using them and they are awesome!  So smooth and easy to use.  




Happy Fall!

Happy Thursday!

It's my day to post on Miss Kate Cuttables' Blog.

I created a set of fall cards.  I used the scarecrow from A Harvest of Memories file.  



I created the scarecrow print and cut file with my Silhouette software.  After cutting them out, I distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.


The papers for the card base are from Bo Bunny Autumn Song 6x6 paper pad.  


I stamped the inside with CardzTV "Thankful for You" Stamp set and Versafine Sepia ink.

Call Mom


The challenge theme is School.

I created a card using Miss Kate's School Zone file and Handwriting Font.



The front panel of the card was created using Print and Cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  

The card base was stamped with a MFT background stamp and WPlus 9 Fairy Dust ink.

I love this card.  My baby went off for her sophmore year of college end of August.  :)

Mini Album with Miss Kate Cuttable Die Cuts

Happy Monday!

Today the Miss Kate Cuttable design team is showcasing Paper Die Cuts.

I created a mini album with School Time and Kindergarten Paper Die Cuts, lunch bags, and Echo Park Teacher's Pet Paper Collection.  The paper collection matched the die cuts perfectly.  


No automatic alt text available.

I embellished the glasses with glossy accents.  So cute!



Some of the die cuts were adhered as pockets, so that mementos can be tucked in.  


All the stars through out the album were accented with Stardust Stickles.  



Each year has a frame (open at the top) so that the school year picture can be added.  


The pocket created by the bag has a photo mat tucked inside, with plenty of room to add other items from the year.


The paper for the back cover is perfect!  Little notes could be written...maybe some doodles added.   Endless decorating possibilities.

Cute Popsicles


The challenge theme is Summer Fun.


I created a card using Miss Kate's Cute Popsicles file.


 Aren't they the cutest???

I cut the popsicles out of Papertrey Ink card stock.  The faces are from Peach Keen Stamps.

The card base was splattered with Dilusions Ink and WPlus 9 Shimmer Spray.  

The sentiment is from Cardz TV.
