Another Masculine Card – “Hi”

Another Masculine Card – “Hi”

Hi everyone!  I’m back to show you yet another masculine card.  I found a card on Pinterest by Amy Kollings that spoke to me so I created my take on the card.  I made a few changes to her card but over all I loved her design and stuck to it.

Graduation Card using Silhouette Cameo

Graduation Card using Silhouette Cameo

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you a couple of graduation cards I made for my nieces.  I did use an image found in the Silhouette online store, grad cap flourish id # 9644.  This is a cut image that I turned into a print and cut.  I wanted to  create cards that used their school colors.

I used the color fill features to change the caps to black and red.  The flourishes I used the gradient gray and changed the dots to black.  The font for “congratulations” is Jenna Sue and the “Class of” is Edwardian Script ITC, the numerals are “aerial”.  I played around with the placements within a 4 X 5.25 space.

Here is how the finished card bases looked in Silhouette:

Once I was happy with the placement and colors I used the silhouette to print the two on one sheet of card stock and used my paper trimmer to trim down the card front as close to the image with a small order around it.  I then placed the card front on the pattern paper and trimmed around the card front living a minimal border and did the same for the colored card stock that matted the pattern paper and adhered them all to the black card base.

The red card I placed a black flat back pearl on the top of cap for the button and applied Frosted Lace stickles on the tassel.  Over the numbers I applied a thin layer of Glossy Accents and to the left I had a  diploma brad that I flattened the prongs out and placed a few glue dots along the back and applied to the card base for an extra touch.

The black card I did bling up a bit.  I placed an iridescent rhinestone to the top of the cap for the button and applied Forsted Lace Stickles to the tassel and to the numbers.  I also placed small rhinestones over the black dots along the flourishes and in a couple of other places scattered around and also placed a diploma brad to the lower left of the card.  I also added a few white dash lines around the cap just to give a little dimension to the cap.

Supplies:

  • Silhouette cameo
  • Silhouette Item Id #9644 grad cap flourish
  • Black and White Congrats/Congratulations Pattern paper
  • red card stock
  • black card stock
  • The paper studio textured black pattern paper

Birthday Card Using MME Sunshine Collection

Birthday Card Using MME Sunshine Collection

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made for my Aunt who is turning 75 this weekend.  I was going to make her a card that would match the gift bag I purchased but scraped that whole idea when going through my paper.  I LOVE this paper collection. I have used it many times before, when seeing the sewing machine I knew that I had to make her card using it.  So there was no die cutting used in this card tutorial… pretty cool huh?  So if you want to see how I made this card:

Sending You Sunshine Card using MME Lost & Found Two Sunshine Collection Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Before we move onto the tutorial don’t forget to enter my blog giveaway!

This card is pretty simple and love how it turned out.  The sun was cut using my Cricut from the Create a Critter cartridge, this was just the base layer, no additional layers needed.  I placed pearls on every other ray, heat embossed the sentiment and applied a strip of lace on a roll from Michael’s.  The pattern papers are off center and meet in the bottom right corner with a few more pearls under the lace in the lower right corner.

Simple “Live Love Laugh” Banner Card using MME “Ooh La La For Her”

Simple “Live Love Laugh” Banner Card using MME “Ooh La La For Her”

Hi everyone!  I’m back to share another simple card with you using the My Minds Eye “Ooh La La for Her” 6×6 paper pad I purchased from A.C. Moore early last year.  I’m pretty sure this is the first time I have used this paper pad.  The papers are great for spring but I’m not so sure you can find it anymore but if you can do pick it up.

This card uses a few papers from the pad, ribbon and stamping. You will see in this tutorial that I goofed with my camera.  I thought I was pausing when in fact it didn’t pause so when I had selected to record it really paused so I didn’t film the card coming together.  I know!  I’ll make another card similar to this one and keep the camera rolling, I promise!  But for now if you want to see this card”s partial tutorial
