Speech Bubble using Silhouette Cameo

Hi there Everyone,

Nope didn't fall of the face of the earth just taking a bit of a break to get things in my craft studio organized some. Just got the Avery Elle pockets in today and got all my dies and clear stamps sets in them. Just need to label them. I am shocked to see how much less room they take up. Yay... great buy.

Yes the card you are seeing was on here before but I have been wanting to make a video on creating the speech bubble and finally got around to do it. I had tried twice before. Now my phone never ring because of using texting or email that sort of stuff but don't you know both times I started this video the phone rings. Finally the third time was a charm. So below the card is the You Tube video showing you how to make your own speech bubble using the Silhouette Cameo. 

Oh and don't forget to keep your little cut outs of the words to use on something else. That is what I did with the word fun. I made a speech bubble and used the word FUN for this card.

I hope you find the video helpful. I would love to see what you create trying this out. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Bad to the Gills

Hello again,

Two days in a row. Mark this on the calendar. LOL

Ok, a few weeks ago I won a challenge over at Digi Galore (thanks ladies) and the prize was images from Simply Betty. I had seen some projects done using the stamps but never really had the chance to check them out. Well I have to say boy did I have a hard time picking out what I wanted for the prize. LOL Of course I went back and purchased the other that were on the wish list. So that lead me to find Simply Betty's facebook group. Wow, lots of fun activity there. She was having a give away for an image but you had to use it in the challenge. You got to pick good or evil of the mermaids. At first I picked good but change it real quick to evil. I thought Oh I am going with something different. 

I had so much fun coloring this and giving it a little bit of evil. Although I think she looks more a little more on the evil seductive side. LOL 

I have colored her with my copics. But I thought she need more so I added distress stickles to her scales. I love stickles. I think it is one of my favorite ways to dress up a card. 

Because I wanted this to have a lot of dimension I need seaweed. Ok so I check my cut files. Nah nothing.So I looked at what I had in my stash. Ok opened a bag of Christmas florals that I bought a couple of years ago. So I pulled of two piece of what was shiny silver. Broke out my air compressor for my copics and had at it. Boom they matched. Yay. 

The verse also came with the digi image and it so perfect. I thought the paper went well with it cause the distressed look kind of reminds me of bubbles . Ok I have went on long enough. Thanks so much for stopping by and checking my Out side of my comfort zone project. Be sure and stop over to Simply Betty and check out her images. She really has some really fun image.

Hello Friend

Hello Friends,

Hope everyone has had a nice weekend. Are you staying cool where you are? 

Today I have a card for you that is for a special friend. I am using another one of Sassy Cheryl's adorable images. I just love here images. Going to purchase another one here shortly. So look out another one coming up. LOL

She is colored with my Copics. Of course she is cut out using my cameo along with her mat she is one. The heart banner is also a cut file. I added stickle hearts inside of the little hearts. The hearts that are scatter around are the pieces from the cut file with some glossy accents on them. She also has some stickles on the bottom of her dress as well. I love stickles. LOL

She has a little pink pearl on her flower. The Hello Friend stamp is one of my favs from Michaels $1 bin. 

I have a couple more cards to post throughout the week. I got time to sit down and create this week. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my card today.

Honoring the flag

Happy Friday Everyone,

I was going to post this yesterday but they day got away from me and next thing I knew it was after midnight. So I thought I would play the "day late dollar short" card. LOL

I have a Sassy Cheryl card(s) to share with you today. 

I thought these were such adorable images.You can get them here. You can buy them as a group or each one by them self. 

I colored these with my copics. Isn't that flag so perfect they way it is waving in the wind. 

I added the clouds with my copic BG000 and template I have from Rosie's Roadshow. I love it. 

The "Happy" I cut out with my Cameo. The July 4th is a Studio G stamp. The punches I used for punching it out are from Stampin Up. Some red,white and blue bakers twine of course perfect for it. Not to mention the red, clear and blue star rhinestones. 

I tried something a little different with her little shirt. I gave it a "watercolor" look.

Did you notice the little lady bugs on each of them. Too cute. 

Hope you have enjoyed the cards. Thanks for stopping by today.
