A travel trailer

Hello everyone, I have something really fun to share with you today.
This is my first time making a 3D object using SVG cuts, and I am real excited about it.  I think I found a new love, to create these things.
We manage and live on an RV storage lot, so I thought this would be cute to make and display here at home.
Isn't it just the cutest thing?  I love all the details.  The original file was created to have it sit on top of a box, but I just wanted the trailer.  The file is called Camp Firefly, you should really go check out all the awesome cut files they have.
I wish I would have put some vellum on the inside of the windows, maybe next time.
The lights are brads that I colored with my Copic markers because I did not have any red ones.  For the Flamingo's legs I used a black twistie tie.
One last picture of the front window.
 Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy my little Travel Trailer.

A Fishy Birthday

Hello everyone, sorry for the little break in posting.  Hubby had shoulder surgery last week so things have been a bit out of sort around here.
I am in love with the way this one turned out.  
 I colored this cute little Whimsy Stamps digital image Gertie with my Copic markers, I colored the lips extra dark and then covered them with Crystal Lacquer.  I cut the fishbowl using my Cricut cartridge Create a Critter a couple of times then glued a piece of clear acetate to the bowl and pop dotted it over Gertie.  I added a few Fiskars ZingZ stickers as water splashes, I love these things for water.
Here is a close up of the fish bowl and Gertie.
The saying I stamped using a Rubbernecker stamp, go check them out they have some really cute stamps and sayings.  I stamped it onto Spellbinder die cut outs.
I searched and searched through my papers to try and find some kind of water paper or something to use as a background (probably spent about an hour+), then I saw this orange polka dot paper and it was PERFECT!  I had the blue/aqua holographic paper in my stash for a while and it all fit together.  Funny how sometimes you have something in your mind and search and search only to come up with something totally opposite that works out much better.
Well thanks for stopping by to take a peak on Gertie, hope you like her.

I will post this card on Make it Monday blog.

Blue, Orange & Pink

Hello, I have a card to share with you that I created following a past Mojo Monday sketch.
I love this color combination and the CTMH Claire paper pack is the perfect combination of these colors.
The butterfly is a coordinating canvas sticker.  I cut the banner ribbon using Cricut Craft Room and CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  Using CCR I was able to create a shadow for the banner.  I love to mat my cards and use shadows, I think it really makes things stand out.
The happy birthday I "wrote" using my sketch pens in my Silhouette Cameo.  I added a little faux stitching around the edge of the card.
Well that's it, thanks so much for stopping by, I will post this card on the Make it Monday blog.

Cardabilities Sketch Challenge

I love working with sketches, in fact I am not sure I could make a card without following one anymore.  
This week on my Bloglovin feed I found a sketch challenge called
Cardabilities, this week it is sketch #82.
Here is what I came up with following that sketch.

The background paper is from Sassy Designs digital paper that I printed using my printer.  The half circle is vellum and I sprayed it with Tattered Angels and drug it around to make the swirls, then I embossed it with a Anna Griffin embossing folder.
I was so happy when I found the happy birthday stamp in my collection as it fit perfect on that rectangle.  It is a Stamper's Best stamp.
I cut the corners using my Cricut cartridge Picturesque.
I added some Cloud 9 epoxy buttons to the bottom, and that is it.
Thanks for stopping by, if you want to play along at Cardabilities you have till September 13th.

A Big Birthday Smile

I am so happy to be back and blogging a little more regularly, I am trying.
Today I have a card to share with you that I made for one of my great-grandsons that will turn 4 in November.
I used Create a Critter to cut out the dinosaur and palm tree.  I embossed the dinosaur and then the background with a cloud embossing folder. Then just for fun I added the googlie eyes.  I thought it fit perfect with the sentiment, but I can't remember whose stamp it was.
Thanks for stopping by, I will enter this card over at Sentimental Sundays.  This weeks challenge is birthday so that was easy for me.

Happy Campers

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well,  
Today I have a quick card to share with you.  I hope someone you got to do some camping this Summer, if you did you will enjoy this card.
The papers are from a stack called The Great Outdoors, that I love using for male cards.
I stamped the bear and tent and then masked them and stamped the trees in the background.  I stamped another bear colored him and cut him out then pop dotted him on top.  I called the bear and then with my Copic markers.  Tried to add some "texture" to the bear sure hope it looks like fur.  The stamps are all from the CTMH Happy Camper set.
Thanks for stopping to take a look.

Pink & Sparkly

Hell, hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.  They Summer is over but it certainly isn't here in Arizona, we are still having 100 degree days.  Yuck, I am sure am ready for it to cool down.
Here is a bright gell well card I made, don't have a need for it right now but it will go in my stash box.
It has glitter on it so it is sparkly, so hopefully would cheer someone up if they were sick.  The butterflies and circles are Recollection stickers from Michaels.  The background paper I printed using my Imagine cartridge Better Together.  The edging is a punch.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak.

Wishing you...............

Hi, I hope you are all enjoying your Labor Weekend.
Today I have a card I created using papers from the DCWV Lemon Flower stack.  I love the papers in this pack.  I was following a challenge where I had to use the colors, yellow - black - white, this stack of papers made it easy to get those colors into my card.
The sentiment is a Verve stamps and I love because it can be used for a few different occasions,  I cut the scalloped oval then put a white oval of pearl paper on top and then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.
I cut the flourish using a Spellbinder die cut.  Added some flowers I have had around here for a long time.
Thanks for taking a peak.
