Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Father's Day! Here is a quick card I made w/ my Silhouette. The main image is a cut that I purchased and threw together. It took me less than 20 min to put this together and I just love the design. I even used pretty much the same colors that was in the example. I liked it. To determine the size I made a rectangle on my silhouette software the size of the white cardstock then sized down the image for it to fit inside it. 

I embossed the white image w/ the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I thought it was prefect w/ this style of card.

Episode 129: Teddy Bear Flocking Technique

Hi Crafters and Friends!  I finally got the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge and decided to make a birthday card and try out a new technique, at least for me.  It is flocking w/ two different colors.  I also made a video showing how I did this.

No Color Wedding Card

It's the first Friday of the month which means it's time for the Cookie Card Challenge! The cookie that I chose is from a challenge that Georganne did on her own blog, LilaLoa. She challenged her followers to make a cookie without using color. When I saw them I thought they would be perfect wedding cards. The one I'm basing my card off of is the one on the bottom left with the Damask image on it.   To see the blog post these cookies are on go HERE.

The damask image I chose I got from the Silhouette store.  I couldn't find one on my Gypsy.  I really liked the elegance of this, it does make a great wedding card.  Which is a good thing because we have like 6 weddings this month!  lol

Sorry for the shiny pic, w/ the cardstock being silver I couldn't take a pic w/o a flash on it.  I also had to use my cell phone for the pics so they aren't the best or w/ the best lighting.

Make sure you stop by Georgeanne's blog to see what project of mine she made into a cookie!  :)

Love Birds!

Today's card I made for my cousin. She is getting married and this card was for her wedding shower. It's from the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge. The cut only has a limb on it and I felt like it was just floating in the air on the card so I cut out a tree trunk by hand to attach it to something.  :)

I added a lot of texture to the card to make it stand out more.  I wish I would have embossed the background but that's OK.  It might have actually been too much so I guess it's good I left it alone.  lol  :)
