Monkeys and bananas

A friend from church asked for 30 bananas and 3 Monkeys.  I cut them with the Silhouette.

She is using them to decorate for a teacher appreciation day.

Flowers with Silhouette

I cut these flowers with the Silhouette as well.  I haven't made cards with them yet but I will soon. 

This next one is far to big to be used on a card.

Layered roses with the Silhouette

I made the card that says Hello for a lady at church.  It is a normal 5.5 by 4.25 card.  It is pretty much the cut file directly from Silhouette

This second one is a big 8.5 by 5.5 card for work. I had to stretch the roses a little bit to work. I also got the words from a different set I bought off of Silhouette Design Store.  I made my own offset with the Silhouette for a background for the words. 

I also coated the words with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.

Finished a couple more cards

This is done with some paper I got at Micheal's. I them painted it with Dylusions paints and a sponge applicator from Tim Holtz.  The words are a die I got from eBay. 

The background here is a paper I got from Artco It already had the embossing and weeds on it.  The words are a die I got from eBay. 

I am getting some extra cards in stock. I am thinking of trying to get more serious about selling cards.

Sending you sunshine

Recently I came across a box from Artco in Rexburg Idaho. This company does wedding invites and stuff. You can get envelopes and odds and ends by the pound from them. 

The background of this card is a paper from them.  The die to cut the word is from Stampin Up.

Altenew Vintage Roses

I splurged and got the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp and die sets.  I have been stamping some of them and not having a lot of luck designing the cards.

I found a set of Altenew inks today at the Craft Outlet today.  I stamps a bunch of yellow roses and leaves today. Rather than using one of the yellow ones, I used a couple pink ones that I stamped before.

The background paper is paper from ArtCo in Rexburg Idaho. I found a box of papers today in the basement.

I will post more cards with the flowers I stamped but here is the start.

The background paper is pearlescent which the photo does not show of course. 

Paper pumpkin - March 2018

I am pretty sure I am just about done with paper pumpkins. I paid for three last kits and I just don't see myself getting more. This one makes a set of five cards that fits into a box. There are 20 cards and four boxes in total. 

I followed this kit pretty much the way they recommended. I changed a could of the sayings around. 

I also stamped the "thanks" right on the cards.
