Magnolia sketch challenge

I love a sketch challenge it is always so much fun to look at what everyone has done. I always get so many ideas by looking at others creativity and that is just what is going on over at the magnolialious blog birthday bash. This week it is a sketch challenge I couldn't wait to use my silhouette to make another frame I can't remember the name of this one off hand but it also has 2 borders you can download . I normally just have the silhouette cut just once but on more intricate designs I probably should have it cut twice just so I don't have to worry about the smaller holes not being fully out when I remove the cardstock from the mat. As you can see not all my holes are out but live and learn I still think it turned out okay. I used some scrap paper from my stash to make the card,the tiny bows were made with the bow easy (man I love that thing),the sentiment is from a dollar stamp and I popped my tilda to give it a 3D effect. Thanks for dropping by and please come back I will be doing Graduation cards next week so come by and take a peek.

Tilda Color Challenge

I did a color challenge over at the Tallyscrappers I love the colors that were in the inspiration photo not colors I would think of putting together but really liked them once it was done . My stamp is a tilda I colored her using copics and water color pencils. The doily background was made with my silhouette it is the Doily Floral Scallop Die. tfl

Outdoor Wedding

It's the season for weddings and graduations and I went to a beautiful outdoors wedding today. I always think people who plan outdoor weddings are the same people who think the glass is always half full. Outside weddings just have a million things that could wrong besides the obvious rain so you have to have a positive outlook to plan a outdoor wedding. This is the card I made for the happy couple I just love white wedding cards and with this one I just added a touch of the bridal party color. I embossed the top layer with a cuttlebug folder and added a decorative border with my silhouette embellished with a few pearls and that was it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Mothers Day

Wow it has been awhile I don't know how time gets away from me. Hopefully I will be blogging regularly and sharing some of the things I have been up to with crafting. The first is a trio of Mothers Day cards I made for my Mom sis and niece. The lattice work on the side of the first one was made with my silhouette along with the frame in the purple card. I love love love my silhouette for doing intricate designs I could never find a intricate punch like these designs and if I did they would not punch through heavy cardstock. On the first card I used simple stickers and popped them one on top of another and then sprinkled the whole card with fine glitter. The other two cards are pretty simple cards. Thanks for stopping by today and stay tuned for more projects and cards along with some silhouette tips for those of you have one or are sitting on the fence.
