My Mom’s Mother’s Day Card

14 05 2017

It’s hard to figure out when to post some things and when not to – so you don’t ruin surprises 🙂 So even though I shared my sister’s mother’s day card, I didn’t post my mom’s early. That, and I had a busy week 🙂

So here’s my mom’s card. Both the sentiment and the butterflies are from the Silhouette Store. The sentiment made me giggle, but then felt a little arrogant, so I followed it up with something on the inside. I used the butterflies as a digital stamp instead of a cut file. I used a sketch pen in my Silhouette Cameo for the words on the card front and inside. The words were colored with prismacolor pencils and the butterflies were a mix of copics and prismacolor pencils.

I Made a Card Using All of the Things

6 04 2017

img_1331I’ve been working on a pretty big project this week, but still found a moment to play a little and make a card.

I LOVE it when I can use all of the art things I’ve spent the last couple of decades collecting 🙂

The card has a nice simple look and was so fun to do.

I stamped the images separately then used my Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils to color them.

Next, I used the coordinating die set I bought with the stamps and cut out the three flowers, two leaves, one butterfly, and one bowl of water.

I layered these on the paper how I wanted them using repositionable adhesive so they could be easily moved without damaging the images.

After transferring the three images (butterfly, water bowl, and floral arrangement) to my pixscan mat,  I used my Silhouette studio software to auto trace the three images which I then used to create and cut out black mats for the three pieces. I finished off the edges of the top layer of paper by sponging ink around the edges and finally grounding the picture a little.

See? I used all of the things to make this card 🙂

Butterflies equal Spring, Right?

20 02 2017

We had another 70* or so day, so my spring card making must be working 😉

Here’s a cute butterfly box card I made for a friend. I’ve been itching to make this for a while and finally the time was right 🙂

I cut the butterflies out on colored paper then embellished with copics, using the examples Mary used in the kit (found here at SVG Cuts).

Thanks for stopping by and happy almost spring!
