Summer Fun

Hello all,

How is everyone holding out now that summer is officially here in the states. It has been a hot week so far where I am. And rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for the next week. Guess not much floating on an swim ring around here much. But don't you just love this cute Sassy Cheryl image. She is so ready for a nice hot summer day.

I have colored her with my copics. I air brushed the water then added waterfall stickles to it for a little sparkle. The sky is created with a template I have and BG-000.I have a little bit of everything happening on this card. My papers are digi papers from Sherry K. The flip flops are a "charm" silhouette cut file. I added some cute flower bling I have had for years to the straps. I remember as a kid you could get those rubber flip flops with the big flowers on them. 

The "summer" speech bubble I created on my cameo super easy. I also cut the words "FUN" out to add. See a lot going on. Of course since she has some cute blinged flip flops I had to give her swim suit some sparkle bling too with cotton candy stickles. Her swim ring was given polka dots using a white sharpie. And I couldn't not add some pearls to match. LOL

I had fun creating this card. Sassy Cheryl creates some really fun images to work with.. 

Of course as a kid I would always end up with pink cheeks from the sun so I had to add a bit more pink on her cheeks even added a bit on her arms and legs.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello everyone,

I hope your week is off to a good start. I am a real set of cuties for you today as well as a new Cameo video. I got these image a while back from Sassy Cheryls. I am not a big Disney fan but I just loved these images. I found some other Disney items to go with them.

I have colored this little cuties with my copics. They have been cut out using my Cameo. The frame behind them was one that was designed by a member of a FB group I am on with the cameo. I offset the frame so that I could do red and black. See below for my video I made on how to make mats for you digi images on your Cameo. 

I found the little Mickey ears "pearls" online from Joann's they were perfect. 

The funny thing is the little verse "let the magic begin" I found in my rubber stamp while going through some of them to put up for sale. How perfect is that verse for these images. I also scattered a few black pearls on the card to give a little more balance. 

Can you just see this card as a birthday card or to put with a gift of a Disney movie or better yet tickets to one of the Disney Theme parks for Summer Vacation. I am going to put this one up in my Etsy shop. I hope you have enjoy the card as much as I did making it. It just came together very well. 

Be sure and check out the video below if you have wanted to know how to make the matting that I put behind my images. I have had the video made for a while now just haven't posted it. Hope it is helpful for someone.

Wedding Couple Circle Step Card

 Happy Wednesday,

Hope everyone is well. Well this is June and that is normally the time we are invited or see a lot of weddings happening. My card today is one that I created a circle step card on the Silhouette Cameo after a friend asked if I could do this rather than having to cut this. So Kim and Joann this is for you. I will have the files at the end of this post for anyone who would like them. This was fun to try and make and was happy that it turned out. 

The image is a Mo's Digital Pencil Too image. The couple are colored with my copics. You can't see it all that well but the brides dress has Stardust stickles on it. The funny thing is the flowers on the back of the dress are a pale pink but darn if you can see that in the photo.

As with the card base the layers and flourishes were cut using my cameo. The image and mat were also cut with the cameo as well. 

The verse is one that I have had for years by Stampin Up. I did use a spellbinders die to cut that out with. I did break out my embossing folders and used one of my spellbinder folders that is reversible to emboss the white layers

The black "pearls" are really a glitter pearl. I don't often us flowers but this beauty was one I purchased from the Dollar Tree a couple years back. So I did use some of my "stuff" from my stash and stopped hoarding it. LOL

Here are the files for you to download. One file is a 7 inch version and the other a 6 inch version. Now there is one step you will need to break out the scissors for but just a little snip and it will take care of it. Below are the pictures showing what you will need to do once you fold your card. Some may not care but some may want to do this. 

As you can see when you do the fold there is a little over hang on the circle now. You can take your scissor and trim using the circle to guild you. 

See just a little snip

And this is what it will look like after you have snipped that piece off. 
If you are using the layering pieces for the steps, you will need to shorten the side a tad because you have removed this piece. 

I hope if you have a Silhouette you will give this a try. Much easier than measuring and cutting by hand. LOL

Polka Dots

Hello Everyone,

I know it's been a bit since I posted but I have been in a major organizing mode. I feel like I am getting a lot done but still much more to do. But today I do have a card for you. This is for the new challenge that has just been posted over at MayzyArt.

Theme this time around is Polka Dots. I have to say I started out with a different thought in mind for the polka dots but ended up doing something different but I am so happy with the way it came out. 

I am using a file I purchased from The Cutting Cafe for use with my Cameo. I just thought it was so fun.
I changed the word to ice cream to make it fit.
If you can see the inside a bit you will notice it is polka dots. When I put that on the front just did not work but it was all good cause I think her shirt looks adorable with the added polka dots. Darn I wish I could find one that looks like it. Very cute. Of course I didn't have an ice cream cone file I could use so I made my own on the Cameo. I have added some sparkle to the ice cream to give it the sprinkle look. Yummy Ice Cream.

Now this is Mallory she is enjoy a stroll and some chocolate ice cream while waving to someone. 
She is available in Mayzy's shop along with all kinds of other fun images. I have colored her with my Copics.

I think most will agree that eating some ice cream is a great way to keep calm. LOL

I hope you will stop by and check out my fellow DT members projects.
And don't forget to see who the winners are from the last challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to have a new video up very soon on working with the Cameo.  Maybe even a new file too.
