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.

Jut a Note....

Happy Thursday!

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

I created a card with my granddaughter in mind.  She started Kindergarten this year..and you know Grandma will be sending her all kinds of packages.  :)

I created this card set using Miss Kate's Flying Unicorn and Rainbow Dots Paper files.

I used the Print and Cut feature on my Cameo for the Unicorn.  I used foam tape to mount her.  

The Polka Paper of printed also..but..I only printed a border because I knew I was going to create a cloud background to anchor the to save ink, the center of the polka dot panel is white.  ;)

Stars & Stripes

The challenge theme is Red, White, & Blue.

Instead of using it as a title, I used parts of it and created a card.  

I cut the pieces out with my Cameo 3 and MFT card stock.

It makes a statement, I think.

Hope this got your mojo going..and be sure to join us in the challenge.

Java Nice Day

Happy Friday!

It's time for a new challenge over at Cardz TV.

I created a card inspired by the holiday and my love for coffee.

 I used Cardz TV Brew Ha Ha stamp set.

I tried to get a pic of the background..but it just seemed to not photograph well.  I sprayed the background with Perfect Pearls.

Thank You, Nurses!

Happy Thursday!

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

I created Thank You cards for the nursing staff at our local hospital.

The first set of cards were created using Miss Kate's Gell Well Soon File and Lucky Font.

I used the files and my Silhouette Design software to create a printable a panel.   I printed two panels per sheet.  Then I used My Favorite Things Blueprints 22 to cut the panel and give a decorative detail to the edge.  A piece of dark brown foam was glue between the panel and the card base.

My second set of cards were created using MKC's Get Well Soon file and Thick Type Font.

I used the cross on the pill bottle to create the focal image.  I manipulated the image to get it to fit the front of the card the was I wanted, and cut it from MFT Electric Red card stock.  The font was written using the sketch function on the Cameo and white sketch pen.

These cards were inspired by the nurses that took care of my husband during a recent hospital stay.  They were wonderful!  We didn't receive a diagnosis until a few hours before he was released....not great news either.  But the staff was very sweet, and I'm grateful for their care and attention to my husband.

America the Beautiful

Happy Friday!

Today is a new Sketch challenge over at Cardz TV.  

The challenge is anything goes...

Here is my creation for the challenge...

I used CardzTV Basic Border and Bigger Everday Sayings stamp sets.

I used the starts from the border set with Unicorn Pigment Ink.  

The stripes were created using post it notes and an ink blending tool.  The stripes are perfectly parralel...but I am ok with that.  Gives me the notion that the 'flag' is flying in the breeze.

The challenge theme is Wedding.

I created a card using Miss Kate's True Love File.

I cut the file out 4 times to provide some dimension.  I backed the focal point with silver cardstock.
