Silhouette Weekly Shape Challenge

I spent some time the other day on Silhouette's Blog.  I discovered that they have a weekly challenge.  It is posted every Friday and you have a week to come up with a project.  This week, they used the scalloped badges.  I had it already in my library so I just had to make a card to enter in the challenge.

I also used the Layered Daisy Flower. The card was quick and easy to put together.  I hope you like what I came up with.

Have a great evening.

Repeat Impressions - WHAT IF? Wednesday ~ Sketch Challenge M2913

Today is my last challenge with Repeat Impressions.  I have so enjoyed this month.  Thank you so much Wendy for letting me participate.  You have a great company and line of stamps.

This is the What If? Wednesday Challenge for this week.

This had so many possibilities.  I will probably use it again.    I really couldn't decide which stamp to use.  I finally decided on the tulip vase.

I hope you have enjoyed following me in the challenges.  Once again, it has been so much fun.

Supplies:  Copic Markers - RV02, RV11, RV13, RV14, G00, G02, G07,  BG15, BG18, BG53

Hope you have a great week.

Silhouette 101 - Owl Easel

I fell in love with this pattern.  It is just so adorable.  Every one who has seen him likes him.  I may just keep him on my desk for a few weeks. Just too cute.

Have a great week.

Silhouette 101 - Pinwheel Spinner Card

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone has plans to be crafty this weekend.  I am hoping to clean off my table after dinner tonight and make something.  I have a challenge over on Silhouette Online that I want to play with and then I also need to complete my Repeat Impressions challange for next week.  And then my list of stamps and digital files I want to play with is just endless.  Hopefully I will find the time to play with something.

I won't tell you how long I play with this slider card.  It has been a couple of years since I have made one.  I just had to try the pinwheel one.  I originally saw it on Dostamping.  When I saw Silhouette come out with a slider card cutting file, I just had to make it.

The sliding is a little jumpy at times but I thought the card came out great.

Have a great weekend.

Silhouette 101 - Bird's Tulip Frame

While I was on Bird's site the other night, I saved the pieces to make this card.  I just love the frames and even though the weather feels like summer, it is still spring so I wanted to make a couple of these before summer officially started.

The color doesn't show very well in the picture but I did color on the back of the vellum.

Supply list:  paper from Blanc Boutique Pack by the Paper Studio, Copic markers; G07, RV13, RV14; Thinking of You stamp by Hero Arts.

Silhouette 101 - Bird's Nest

I haven't cut any of Bird's patterns lately, so when I sat down tonight to work on birthday cards, I decided to cut one of her patterns.  I just love her site.  I can always find some thing to work on from her site.

I decided to make one of her background cards tonight.  It is just perfect.  It will be one that I cut again and again.

Have a great night everyone.

Inky Antics - Flower Turtle

I don't shop with Inky Antics often but I do love several of their stamps.  A couple of weeks ago, when I went to the Mega Meet in Novi, Michigan, I had to stop at their booth and see what was new.

One of my son's closest friends loves turtles so I picked up the Flower Turtle set.  I sat down last night and put together a simple card for her.  I hope she likes it.

I haven't been making a supply list with my cards so I am going to try to do better.  To that end, I used the following copic markers to color the turtle.  G21, G24, G40, and Y08. 

Have a great day.

WHAT IF? Wednesday ~ Sketch Challenge M1513

I am so upset with myself.  I forgot to post my Sketch challenge card yesterday.  I used one of my favorite Repeat Impressions' stamps.  I just love the daisies and butterfly.  I cut out one of the daisies for the corner.

I ordered a couple of new stamps from Repeat Impressions.  I just need to find the time to mount them and then stamp with them.

Here is the sketch.

Silhouette 101 - House

I found the original house for this card over on Corgi Creations. It was just so cute that I had to make one. I don't think I will make many of these.  There is a lot of pieces to it.

Have a great day.

Repeat Impressions - DCC58 ~ Masculine Cards

It is that time again.  Time for a Repeat Impressions' challenge and this week it was definitely a challenge for me.  That is one of the reasons, I like the challenges so much.  They make me work at my stamping.  And that makes it fun.

This week's challenge was masculine cards.  This has always been hard for me and I am not sure my card is as masculine as it can be but I would send this card to several of the men in my family.  Including my father-in-law.  Plus I just love making patriotic cards.

Have a great day every one.

Silhouette 101 - Strawberry Shaped Card

With strawberry season right around the corner (late May early June in Michigan), I just had to put together a couple of cards.  This is the first one, I am sure there will be more.

This had no stamping but I do have several strawberry stamps I want to play around with.

Hope you like the card.

More Butterflies

I cut this card with my Silhouette Cameo.  It makes card making so easy.  I know you have heard this from me before if you check my blog regularly, but I am enjoying my cameo so much.  It makes card making so much easier.  I don't have to design the actual card anymore, I just pick one out and cut.  Then all that is left is stamping my main image.

I used Stampin' Up "Up in the Air" as the stamp on the card and colored it with copic markers; B02 and YG03.

I hope you enjoy the card.  I have great Sunday afternoon.

Repeat Impressions - WHAT IF? Wednesday ~ Sketch Challenge M113

I really meant to post this before I left for work this morning but I just ran out of time. 

Here is my big announcement, I have been picked to be a Guest Artist this month on Repeat Impressions.  I love the stamps over at Repeat Impressions.  If you don't have any of their stamps, take a moment and look at their site.  They have some great stamps.

Today, they posted their What If Wednesday Challenge.  I made two cards for the challenge.  I hope you enjoy both of them.

Have a great day.
