HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CRAIG - Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone!  Well, today is my husband's birthday!  He's as much a kid about his birthday as my son, Jacob!  He has a list of things that he wants to do through the weekend to celebrate his birthday.  Do I need to say that he hasn't grown up yet?

So today, I bought him a cupcake cake made in the shape of an ice cream cone.  When I brought them home, he loved them.  Told you that he was a kid.  So I made  him a card because he doesn't like store bought cards.

I used a cut file for a pop up card on my Silhouette Cameo.  I think that Craig will like it. 

I'll give it to him tomorrow night after we go out to eat and come home to eat the cupcakes for desert - YUM!!

Thank you for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna

My Last Easter Cards (I think) For This Year

I got my Easter cards ready to mail today and breathed a sigh of relief.  Then I realized I needed two more.  With not much time, I remembered some printable vintage angel images I had downloaded from Wings of Whimsey.  This is a site that has vintage images all the time.  So I printed them out and set about making these clean & simple cards.

First I embossed each card with Anna Griffin Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. Then used doilies, pearls, gems and ribbon to decorate and twa la, I have 4 cards to send.  

Thank you for visiting with me today. Your visits mean so much to me.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Masculine Birthday Card

Donna's husband, Craig, is having a birthday Thursday.  His card was at the top of my list for this week.  I chose a cut file from the Silhouette Store to use on his card, worked with it for a while, then decided I did not want to use it.  After that I chose an image from the Cricut cartridge, 'Paper Lace 2' and went from there.

Card Supplies:
5.5"X5.5" Card Base
Background Paper - KandCo. 'Blue Awning' paper stack
Happy Birthday - Paper Lace 2 Cricut Cartridge
Brad - KandCo.

My Crafting Bug Wall Hanging

In my March 18th blog post, I showed you a digi I had enlarged and colored as the beginning of a project.  Over the weekend I finished this wall hanging.  I think it turned out cute.  I made a card similar to this when I first got the image but I like him as a wall hanging better.

Project Supplies:
11"X14" artist canvas
Image - 'Craft Bug' by Priscillastyles
Acrylic Paint Colors - for the background - Turquoise, Lime Green, White (to lighten colors). 
Scissors & Sentiment - From Cricut Everyday cartridge
Paper swatches - I drew a rounded square in Silhouette Studio Design, replicated it and filled them with patterns of digital paper I had added to Silhouette software.  I used the print & cut feature to produce them.  
Flowers - Micael's $1 bins
Lime Zest, Lime Green, Primrose, Magenta, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Tan, Light Peach, Peach.  I used a silver metallic gel pen for the scissors. 

I hope you like my little project.  Now all I have to do is decide where to hang it.  I hope your week is filled with God's blessings.  Thank you for your support.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Another Easter Card

This card was made entirely from a cut file from the Silhouette online store.  I didn't know it would take as long to make as it did.

All you have to do is choose your paper (you could fill the pieces with color in Silhouette Studio, then print & cut instead) and cut out the different shapes.  What takes so long is figuring out where to put the pieces, then adhering each piece in place.  I don't think I will be making another one.  The image # is 56993.

Thank you for dropping in today.  Please come back tomorrow for our Paper A La Mode Challenge at The Outlawz.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Easter Blessings

The lovely Granmargaret commented on my 'An Empty Tomb' card and told me I could find some Easter images & papers at Daydream Designs.  So naturally to go to the website to have a look see.  I loved so many of their designs but I just bought the Easter products.  As a result, I made this card.

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Digital Image and background paper - Daydream Designs 'Christ Is Risen Ensemble'
Label - Silhouette Online Store cut file #40619 - Stacked Label Set.  I chose 3 different sizes of the label, filled them with color.  On the white one, I placed one of the cross images & a sentiment from the Christ is Risen Ensemble.  Then I printed them and the Cameo cut them out.  This particular image was pre-colored so it was a very easy card.  

Thank you for visiting with us today.  Don't forget to enter the contest in the right sidebar.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy
