Father's Day Fisherman-Silhouette Challenges



Silhouette Challenges




Challenge #37 "Anything Goes"
Starts: May 1
Ends: May 31








Doesn't this character tickle you? I just grinned when I first saw this cut file created by Snapdragon Snippets and purchased through the Silhouette Store.  My Sweetie's Father is quite a Fisherman-so this card was just perfect for his Father's Day Card. He's one of those guys that watches the mailbox for his special card! I just love that!

I used some SU! craft for the base of this card and then The Paper Loft Hooked on Fishing 6x6 patterned paper.  The fun part of this card was searching through all my scrap drawers for just the right color of browns and greens to use.  It has a gazillion pieces, but was so fun to put together!







 I couldn't stop at Mr.Fisherman, I had to make his  'wife' too. Meet Gardener Gal. I made her for Fisherman's wife's birthday! These cards look so fun sitting side by side. They are rather large...A7 size. about 5.5 x 7.25, so they take a special envelope.

I used a yellow base and different pieces from my scrap drawers for Gardener Gal. A fun part of these files was deciding which pieces to add pop dots too..such fun dimension!

There are a whole series of designs like this, so you will probably see more down the road!

I adore this Charlie Chaplin cling stamp!  He looks so happy dancing around with his pointy shoes!  


I found some Chaplin quotes online and printed this on to my card base. I colored Charlie with lots of browns and then cut him out with my ScanNCut2 machine. I added him to the card with pop dots and that was it!!!

HMFMC 219 Mid Way Reminder -You are my Sunshine!


**HMFMC#219 **



Mid Way Reminder


"YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE"





I pulled out this "oldie but goodie"  stamp for this card. This is an oldie from Stampa Rosa named Strike a Posey.  As always...one of my favorites! (aren't they all?)  My card base is a fun shaker card cut file from Lori Whitlock #59930,  3D Shaker Embellishment . The sentiment is from a sentiment set from Hero Arts , Anytime Messages. I added in some sequins for a little shaker action!

Thanks for popping in today! I would love to have you join our challenge this week!

You Are My Sunshine HMFMC219


** NEW CHALLENGE, HMFMC#219 **




"YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE"







I had fun making this sunny creation! 

I love that song "You Are My Sunshine"--it reminds me of my Mom singing that song to all her grand babies-including my children! You could certainly use any inspiration at all for your Sunshine creation!

I cut this sun with my Silhouette and added a Lawn Fawn pierced circle in the center. I used my new cling  Forget Me Nots stamp-cut out with my ScanNCut2. Isn't this image just sweet?  The sentiment is from  Technique Tuesday Bring On the Sun by Ali Edwards-one of my favorite sentiment sets.

Thanks Coach-Penny Black Saturday Challenge May








Masculine




I made this Thanks Coach Baseball Box as a perfect compliment for  this darling Field of Dreams stamp! I colored him with copics and added him on to the baseball with pop dots. The box is fairly large (5 x 6.5) so you can add lots of goodies to surprise your coach.  Both my little grandsons play on teams so I am sure I will be making more than one! Sorry this pic is just a little blurry.




I cut out the image on my Scan n Cut 2 with a .04 border.

Mother's Day Cards 2016










This is my 2016 Mother's Day cards...one for his and one for hers!  This is a new file from Lori Whitlock-Mason Jar Bouquet Box Card. I just love that this file used the sketch pens for the jar lid. I have not used my pens much so I was excited to use them on this project.  One thing I did change was to trace the sketch pen lid piece and then offset .015 so that the cut line would be outside the traced lines. I also added dimensionals on several of the flowers and the flower centers. 

Who doesn't love polka dot flowers???  




Just so fun to make-and they fold flat for mailing too!

Enjoy!!!

Girly Shirley!



I just love this 'girly' Shirley cut file from My Scrap Chick! I can't wait to dress up her sisters, Goodness and Mercy too!
You can find the three chicks file HERE.

I made these for two very dear friends that had birthdays this week. Of course I had to use cherry papers since I work at a Cherry plant!

I made Shirley as a standing card by making a mirror of the front body piece and stapled the top at the head pieces, tucking it into her bonnet to hide the closure.   I did make two sets of leggies(doubling the legs for strength)-so that means I cut 8 legs. To finish Shirley off, I did a little chalking and added a few accents with a white Kirarina Wink pen. Her wing and sunflower are added with pop dots. Inside I used a Paper Smooches Hey Chickie sentiment and wrote Happy Birthday below that. 

This would make a darling Mother's Day card don't you think?

65 Mustang Birthday Card

Silhouette Challenges




Challenge #36 "Anything Goes"
Starts: April 1
Ends: April 30


Welcome to the April Anything Goes Challenge over at 
We would love, love, love to see what you are doing with your machine these days!

Today I am showing off a guy card! My sweetie had a birthday and he told me he wanted a 65 Mustang...so this is as close as I could get LOL!

This is a cut file from the Silhouette Store designed by Megan Hardy.  It cut so nicely, but fair warning...this is a BIG card. I cut it to size and it turned out to be 10.5 inches long. That posed a wee bit of a challenge to photograph...the darned thing would not fit in my light box!  

It was easy to put together...I must say I fell in love with the tires-they are so fun-check out the close up !


                                    
I am entering the following challenges:
