Silhouette Cards with The Cutting Cafe

Hello crafty friends! I am here with inspiration from The Cutting Cafe. Our assignment this week was to use the Fun with Silhouettes file and leave the silhouette black. I'm not going to lie. This one was hard for me. I had NO idea's. How can you make a card (or project) cute with a black Silhouette? So, I went to the best place I know...The Cutting Cafe Design Team. I started looking at the pictures of their projects and was instantly inspired. We really have a great team of talented crafters! 


I went through my scraps of paper and found this cute snow man paper. Perfect for a Silhouette of a snowflake, I thought. I had this adorable card made in about 20 minutes. WHAAATTT??!! Yes, 20 minutes! I was so excited with how fast this card went together I decided to make a couple more. 



Another 30 minutes later, I had 3 cards done. I was hooked! I wanted to keep making them. So, I busted out 2 more. 



I seriously had these 5 cards done in less time than it usually takes me to make one card. And they're super cute! I'd say these are perfect cards to be making and selling at craft bazaars. The are unique, cute, take hardly no time at all AND they are a great way to use up scraps.

Here's a couple more shots of each card...










I'm super happy with how all of these turned out. Who know cards with black silhouettes could be so cute?!?! I will be making more for bazaars! 

Thank you so much for stopping by tonight. See you all again soon! Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team came up with tomorrow (July 21,  2017) on The Cutting Cafe blog.

Flower Pop Up and New AHNM image

Hi everyone! It's inspiration time at The Cutting Cafe! This week we are working with the Flower Pop up file. You have to stop by later today to take a look at the DT inspirational post and all the different things that the DT did with this file. It's awesome how many different things we can come up with using the same file. If you leave a comment on that post, you will be entered in a chance to win 3 free Cutting Cafe files of your choice! You can't beat that! 

Ok, on to the card I made...


Eeekkk! So many cute tiny blue flowers! I cut about a million of this little things, inked them with faded jeans distress ink and then glued them together. 


They were the perfect accent for this beautiful new image from Angels Hearts and Memories. 


This lady looks like a Goddess. In fact, her name is Goddess Ivy. I think the tiny blue flowers surrounding her makes her even more beautiful. 


When I look at a card, I am often drawn to the little details...like these tiny flowers. They are small, but they really complete this card perfectly. 


Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a craftastic day!

BINGO with The Cutting Cafe

Hello! How is everyone enjoying their summer? I have been working my tushy off! I've got the veggie garden in, spring cleaned my girls' bedroom and my bedroom, we've been hiking a "hill" once a week (I call it a mountain, but my husband says it's a hill. It's 900 ft in elevation. On the trail there is 480 steps. No, that's NOT a typo! I almost died the first time we did it this summer, but it gets a little easier each time we do it.), we clean the cat kennels at Petco every Saturday for the animal shelter and we are fostering kittens. (Getting new foster babies on Thursday)  Not to mention trying to keep up on the daily chores AND make time for craft therapy =) 

I'm so thankful for my DT positions so that I have to make time to sit down and craft! Otherwise I might get to wrapped up in all the work that needs done. 

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we are working with the Printable Bingo Card Sets


There are so many fun things you can do with the different bingo cards. I went with a card, well because I love making cards. 


The butterfly was hand made by my Great Aunt. She is 86 years old. A couple of months ago she got into tatting. I had no idea what tatting is when she started. It's a very pretty form of needle work, just in case you didn't know either. 


I usually layer the inside of my cards with card stock to make the card strong enough to hold all the embellishments.

I think the Bingo Card Set Printable Stamps make adorable cards. You can also print them out to play a bingo game. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Check back at The Cutting Cafe on June 21st. If you leave a comment on the DT inspirational post, you will be entered in a chance to win 3 free Cutting Cafe files of your choice.

See you again soon!
Hugs,

It's Road Trip Time with The Cutting Cafe

Hello! A road trip sounds fun, don't you think? I'd like to drive down to the lower 48. Drive through Washington, Oregon and into California to hit a warm beach. Maybe take the kids to Disney Land. 

The only problem is is that it is fishing season and there is no way that my man is going to be missing that. Plus my two oldest kids are going to be going to Dillingham, Alaska in a few days to help a family friend during the fishing season. He owns his own boat and does commercial fishing. 

On to today's project. The Cutting Cafe Design Team is working with the It's Road Trip Time file. This file is soooooo cute! It comes with different printable sets that you could use on a card or scrapbook page. 


I think this may be the cutest Interstate sign I have ever seen! The paper I used is from My Minds Eye. It's called Abbey Road. I have had this paper in my stash for years. I am happy to be putting it to use. 

I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the card, numbers and word. 

Check back with The Cutting Cafe tomorrow, June 6th, to see what the rest of the DT has come up with using the It's Road Trip Time file. If you leave a comment on the DT inspirational post you will be entered in a chance to win 3 free Cutting Cafe files of your choice. 

Thanks for popping in! Have a craftastic day!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

When you read the title, did you sing it in the tune of Madonna's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun? I do every time I see it. I love that song. 

Anyhoo...I have a rocking card to share today using an image from Angel's Hearts N Memories.  


The image (Rock Star Molly) kinda reminds me of Madonna. Which is why I made her blond. I used Copic Markers to color her. 



 I used some GORGEOUS papers from Prima. The pack is called Rose Quarts. I got the ephemera that goes with the paper pack. There's some awesome stuff in there!


The pink butterfly is from Renea's Bouquets. She has LOTS of gorgeous butterflies, dragonflies and more. You should totally check out her store. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. This girl needs to get to bed! Have a good night/day wherever you are =)

Hugs,
