Happy Father's Day Grandpa!

Grandpa Loves The Red Sox!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are having a terrific day!  My dad just loves the Red Sox.  So, for Father's day I made him this card.

I downloaded the picture from the internet and edited it in my Silhouette DE software.  I inked up the edges with Basic Grey Stampin' up ink, added some glossy accents (love this stuff), ribbon from M's, and popped the top layer with Scotch foam tape.  It's difficult to see the glossy accents in the picture.  It looks great in person and adds a lot of dimension.

Have a great week!

Little Miss Sunshine!

Oh Happy Day!

Someone I know is 5 today!

Hi Everyone!
I hope your week is going great!  It's hard to believe that it is almost Friday already.  Where did the week go?

Today I am sharing a little card that I made for my great niece's 5th birthday.  Little Miss Sunshine is such an uplifting little character, just like my niece.  I print and cut most of the shapes, including the background paper, using my Silhouette Cameo.  I added Glossy Accents to her pigtails, glitter here and there and some black lines for motion on the birds, inked up the edges with pink ink and an action wobble for some added fun - and there you have it.  I sure hope she likes her card!

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the week.  If you like what you see, please leave a little comment.  It sure makes my day!

Star Trek Birthday Card!

Hi Everyone! 

I hope that you had a super week!  Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for my brother.  He loves all things science fiction, Star Trek, Star Wars - you name it.  This card is pretty simple to make.  I found this terrific picture of the Starship Enterprise on Google images. I imported it into my Silhouette software and added the text.  Next, I printed it twice and fussy cut out one starship.  I embellished it with Glossy Accents on the light and the top.  Then I adhered it with pop dots for dimension.  I mounted the picture on a dark gray card.

I am really pleased with out it came out.  It really looks like the starship is floating through space toward you.  It would look great in a frame on his desk.  I sure hope he enjoys it!

I also got a new light tent today.  I am really excited about this and look forward to improving my blog pictures.  I think this one turned out pretty good in the new tent! LOL!!

If you like what you see, please leave me a little comment - it always makes my day.  Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific weekend!

Teacher Appreciation!

Thank you teacher!!

Hi Everyone!

It's hard to believe that the end of the school year is here!  It seems like just yesterday when we packed all the new supplies in the world's largest backpack and headed off for the first day of school.

I made several different cards for the teachers.  This one I made for my son's teacher - who he just loves!   I CASED it from Emma at My Creative Time.  I didn't have the Cricut cartridge that she used.  So I used a shape I found on the Silhouette store and cut it with the Cameo.  I colored the stamped image (MCT - All Around Everything) with Copics.  I had fun picking out different papers to make this with.  It looks so cute in person.  I need to work on my photography a little more . . .  I am thinking of getting some type of light box.  It's all fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you all have a terrific week!
