Wild About You

Hi everyone.  I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to share another card I just finished with you tonight...

The embossing folder is Sizzix-Swirly Vines with Hearts.
I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut out the card.
The sentiment is computer generated.
The cute ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This cute lit lion is by Meljen's Designs.  I am such a fan of her digis.  She has some of the cutest ones out there.  You should go check them out if you aren't familiar with them.  You will love them too.
I used my Cameo to cut perfectly around my digi.  I can't tell you how happy I am with that feature.  It makes cutting these lit guys so easy and so precise!!

I hope you all have enjoyed my card.  Also, for all of you Silhouette users out there (Cameo & SD), go over to Cameo Creations for the latest challenge and inspiration.

Meljen's-Red &/or Pink
RRR-Valentine's Day

Have a great night everyone!!

Crafty Sprouts-Case our DT Challenge

Good morning my crafty friends.  Thank you for joining us for another fun challenge over at Crafty SproutsThis week the challenge is to Case our DT.  What this means is you need to look for a card or project that one of us has created and copy the style/layout or be inspired by the colors, image, DP, style, etc.  Basically any project of ours that has inspired you to create something similar.  We need to be able to tell where you got your idea from, so also provide the link to the card/project that you CASED.  Easy right??
So for my card, I cased Sandra's easel card.  First I just thought her card was super cute and second, I have never ever made an easel card.  Can you believe that?? So what better way to challenge myself to try something new than to just go for it!!  Here is a picture of Sandra's card:

And here is my project:

I used my Imagine and the Imagine More cart for this project, including the paper.

Here is the card closed.  I have to tell you, making this card was super easy.  I used the tutorial by Jinger Adams which you can find here.

This super cute sentiment is from Erika's (Crafty Sprouts) stamp set...Besties for Life.
The border punch I used is Martha Stewart...Vintage Doily.

Ok, my friends, I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Make sure you go on over to Crafty  Sprouts to check out all of my DT sisters fun projects for more ideas and inspiration.  You can also link up your challenge project there too.  The prize is this new PKS stamp:

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!  Who knows, maybe you will learn something new like i did!!

Have a great weekend my friends!!

Birthday Mouse using the Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone.  I wanted to share this card that I made today.  It was my first time using my new Cameo and so I was really excited!  I was really excited about being able to print and cut the digi I was going to use, instead of having to cut by hand (we all know how well that can go, lol).  So here it is...

This cute lit' digi is from Meljen's Designs.  I was able to cut the digi out just perfectly using the Cameo! I absolutely love, love that!!! I colored using Copics and added some glitter as well.

This cute sentiment is from Crafty Sprouts-Smile On stamp set.

I hope you all liked it.  I am so looking forward to using my Cameo more and sharing with you all!  This reminds me.....starting Jan. 19th Monica at Monica's Creative Madness is starting a Challenge Blog for all the Cameo lovers out there!! There will be a new challenge every other Thursday.  Be sure to check it out and join in the fun!!

Happy Birthday Monster

Good morning everyone!  I wanted to share with you a cute lit Birthday box I made for my son who will be turning 15 (yikes!) this Friday.  Since he is at that age where it is really hard to shop for I decided to make him this lit box and I plan on filling up with his favorite candy and some cash!!

I cut the lit box using Tags,Bags,Boxes & more.
The sentiment was cut with Life is a Party cart.

This cute lit' monster was cut with Mini Monsters.
The adorable lit' face is by PKS The Uglies.
I also added some polka dots using acrylic paint for a 3D effect.
