Puppy Valentine Card

Found this cute puppy image and the heart frame at the Silhouette store.  Printed then cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.  It's very quick and easy to make.  This is for the children's charity.

Sailboat Card

Our plans changed.  Our company coming from out of state has delayed their trip due to all the snow.  They are going to wait for a break in the weather before they head our way.  So it looks like I have a bit of time to work on some cards.  This card went together fairly quickly.  I stamped the crackle background on SU Bordering blue CS with Bordering blue ink.  Ship was stamped with Night of Navy ink on Neenah CS.  Cut out pieces with Spellbinders and MFT dies.

  I made this for a new charity called Card Care Connection that I just found out about. Their mission is to send cards to help brighten the day of people who have cancer.  They are in need of masculine cards which are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I grabbed some stamps and gave it a go.  I tried to make my card generic so it could be used for the boys or the men in the program.

Itching To Be Your Valentine

Front of card

Inside with saying I'm "itching" to be your Valentine!

Love these fun digi stamps from Eureka.  I printed the dog and saying, then cut them out with the
 Spellbinders Lace Heart die set.  Stitched layer was cut out with MFT blueprint die. 
 This is for the children's charity.

complete a card in a short period of time and get instant gratification.)

I'm back

I still have a few projects left to do on my list, but finished most of them, so thought I would take today off and make some cards for the children's charity. Found this cute butterfly and hello script cut files at the Silhouette store.  Created a offset in Silhouette Studio, duplicate above, overlapped, aligned and merged two to form the white card base.   Cut out all pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.  Instead of throwing out the pink butterfly that was cut out, I folded up the wings and glued it back on to the card base for more dimension.
