Happy Birthday Card using MFT Bubble Technique

Hey There! 
So I watched this My Favorite Things YouTube video where they
made some bubbles using a circle stencil.

The trouble was...I didn’t have this stencil but I did have a Silhouette Cameo!
I made my own stenci from card stock and various circle cut outs.

I followed very closely to the video cause I cant lie, I was sure I was gonna mess it up.
I used a ton of Distress Inks and mixed them up in the bubbles.

Distress Inks:
Abandoned Coral
Worn Lipstick
Carved Pumpkin
Squeezed Lemonade
Twisted Citron
Mowed Lawn
Peacock Feathers
Mermaid Lagoon
Wilted Violet

I then cut out the sentiment also using the Silhouette.
I cut out 3 of the sentiment in white and then I cut it out of the inked background.
That was the terrifying bit and hoping I have it on the mat right and that is stuck on good.

I then used a white gel pen to add the shine bits onto the bubbles. 

I put the background onto some black and white pattern paper. 

I had a ton of fun making this card and will definitely make again!

Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!

Daffodil Card using Silhouette Cameo 3 and Distress Oxides


Oh man April was not a great month for my Silhouette Cameo 3.
No matter what I put the blade at or settings in the Studio software the machine would go crazy and cut like it was cutting through chipboard.

I went though 3 reps and new cutting strips and blades and then finally got the replacement machine sent and it worked!!!
This was the first card I made and I was stoked!!

I love daffodils and I had to get this file when I saw it in the Design Store. 

I cut all the parts from white cardstock and then Colored with Distress Oxide Inks. 

I finally shed off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist. 

Distress Oxides: 
Salty Ocean
Squeezed Lemonade
Carved Pumpkin
Lucky Clover 

Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!!

Guest Star Stamper for Color Throwdown #493

Hey Guys!

I am super excited to be sharing the card I made for being the Guest Star Stamper after
 being chosen in the CTD#491 challenge!

I was so happy when I saw the colors for this week weeks challenge CTD#493

They are my fave color combos....Aqua, Lime and White

I white heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Center Cut Flowers Stamp onto some watercolor paper. 

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers 
to water color in the flower and leaves. 

I wanted to make the flowers pop so I added a bit of Hickory Smoke onto the background. 
I cut the piece out using the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-Namics. 

The Thanks sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Die. 
I cut the shadow from vellum and the word from Neenah Metallic card stock in white gold. 

I had to add some sparkle with the Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals. 

I used the center part of the stamp to ink the inside of the card using
 Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. 

Thank you so very much for visiting and I hope to see you next week for the next challenge!

Color Throwdown #492 using MFT Bold Blossoms

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are having a lovely Mother's Day!

Today I have my submission to the Color Throwdown Challenge #492

I was at first like what am I gonna make with these colors but then I decided to go out of my box and still do a floral with unconventional colors for the leaves. 

I wanted to use a technique that Amy R did on her YouTube channel of Faux Watercoloring.

She had stamped out the images and then sprayed water to get them to bleed.
Guess what I learned.... Memento Dye Inks hardly bleed. 

Memento Inks Used:
Lady Bug
London Fog

I am pretty new to non Distress Ink using so totally didn't know that. Lol

What happened when I did the water was that it did soften the images and I know will sound weird but it gave it a suede-y like look that I just loved!

The sentiment is from the Concord and 9th Here's the Scoop stamp set and I heat embossed it onto vellum with Ranger Watering Can embossing Powder 

The card base came from the May SSS card kit. I actually cut the base just a bit on two sides to be able to use to hold down that vellum piece. 

I finished the card off by stamping some of the images on the inside with SSS Fog ink. 

Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you on Wednesday 
for the next Challenge where I will be the Guest Star Stamper! Eeeeeekkkkk!
Have a great day!

Mothers Day Box Card

Today I have a Mother's Day card I made from a Lori Whitlock design in the Silhouette Design Store.  It is a adorable 3D card which Lori is fantastic at designing.

My cameo is acting crazy so no lie it took me two days, lots of cursing and 5 hours with Silhouette tech support to get this made. lol

I cut all the images from some white card stock.

I inked up all the images with Distress Oxide Inks.
I kept the inking very simple due to the above issues I was having.

Distress Oxide Inks Used:
 Broken China
 Tattered Rose
Lucky Clover
 Cracked Pistachio
Carved Pumpkin
 Squeezed Lemonade
  Hickory Smoke

I then added some Nuvo Jewel Drops in grey mist to add some interest and to be honest,
hide some mistakes.
That is what they are made for right?

The beauty of this card is that it can be folded to fit in a card to be mailed 

Thank you for checking it out and see you next time!
