This was fun!!

I was invited this past weekend  to a house warming/open house for a couple recently married.  It took me a minute to decide on what I wanted to made for them.  Then I thought I can make something cute with my Silhouette.  So, I finally used my Silhouette Cameo to make a card, yea!  I've had it for a few weeks now and have just been getting used to using it.  I actually made the swirly white background on the cards from my last post here so I guess that was my actual first time using it for a card.  But, this card was totally cut by my Silhouette and was so fun & easy to cut and put together.

  I look forward to learning more and creating some great thing with my Silhouette Cameo.  I love it!!

Happy Crafting!

A Prayer for the Cure...

Recently I've had two friends that have been diagnosed with breast cancer.  No matter who it is that news is always sad to hear.  So, this weekend I made cards to send them in hopes that they will be encouraged and strengthened.  I prayed over the cards and will send them out this week. This is the card,  I made the same cards for both ladies.  I also included a scripture tag of my favorite healing scriptures.  I know that God will see them through this.

Have a great & blessed week!

Happy Crafting!!

More Happy Celebrations..

Lately I made another  set of cards marking very happy celebrations.  I made another anniversary card for a couple at my church who celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows.   Here's their card,
This card is very colorful and vibrant in person, unfortunately I didn't capture it that well.  For the focal point rose on this card, I decided to take advantage of the pretty paper I used, first I just cut out a large rose with a circle Nestibilities die then I went around the edge with a clear sparkle gel pen. I cut out the shape of another rose and added a stickle type glitter glue to glitz it up a bit and few pop dots to layer it for some dimension. 

My boss celebrated her birthday this past weekend and I made this card for her.  This is the first card I've actually given that I did my Copic coloring on.  The flower is from the Gina K Dogwood and Butterfly rubber stamp collection.  I decided to cut them out and use pop dots and a little bling.
Can anyone say brownie points?!  LOL, She loved it.

My sister-in-law's birthday is today but we celebrated it over the weekend and she loved her card too, here's her card.
I made this rose again that I've made on the cards in my previous post.  I love making these roses.  I used the Spellbinder Rose Creations set by Donna Salazar, the leaves are also Spellbinders Foliage set, I usually use pearlized chalk to color the rose and ink the edges with an ink pad, then spritz with Tim Holtz Pearl glimmer mist. For the background I use a Cuttlebug folder & I inked it using the Tim Holtz Red Brick distressed ink pad & Mememto yellow ink pad... I can't remember the exact color but the blend was great.  Then I cut it in thirds, added a lacey paper doily & popped a little blingy circle for just to added a little interest.

That's it for now, more later.

Happy Crafting!
