CardzTV Stamps Challenge "Father's Day"

The challenge this week at CardzTV is making a Father's Day project. Now don't forget, Mary always gives a set of stamps away to the winner (your choice) plan to get your project in. 

This is what I made:


Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Two Shades of Brown, Two Shades of Tan, Two Shades of Green, Teal, Black, Red, Gold, Blue and Patterned Paper
Silhouette Man Fishing Image and Flourish (partial)
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps It's a Guy Thing, " Fishin' You (A Happy Birthday)" and "Happy Father's Day!"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Tiny Mosaic Texture (Red Fish Inside) and Herringbone (Gold Fish Inside)
Darice Embossing Essentials Swirl (Green Fish on Front and Inside)
Sizzix Embossing Folder Plaid (Shirt on Front)
Sizzix Die Fish (Fish Inside)
Brown Chalk (On the Boat and Hat) and White Chalk (On Shirt)

This was a lot of fun to put together. I like it when I use more than one machine or folder to make a card. I hope you like it as much as I do. Please check out the projects from the other designers...they are always so creative.

Digi Haven Challenge Butterflies

It's challenge time at Digi Haven. This week is Butterflies. Floppy Lattes Digital Designs is our sponsor. They have a $6.00 gift card for the winner. 

Here is the card I made (I tried something different):

I printed the image twice...once on vellum and once on white cardstock...I colored the vellum on the back side of the image and the white cardstock image:

 Finished Card: 4 14" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White and Vellum
Floppy Lattes Digital Designs Butterfly Dreams 4 Pack
Spectrum Noir Markers
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Simply Said "Just For You"

It's pretty clean and simple but I think it came out nice. Now if you do try this, remember that the markers bleed though on the white you will need to put a blank piece of cardstock on the back to cover it. (I didn't think about that beforehand). I stamped the sentiment on the front side of the vellum.

Glad you stopped by and thanks. Please leave me a comment or two. 

Happy Memorial Day on Monday also. Have a safe holiday!

Thinking of You Card

I am fairly new with using the Silhouette Cameo. My husband gave it to me for Christmas, but I was intimidated and left it in the box for months and I do mean months! Finally, I put my big girl pants on and gave it a try....and I LOVE IT! Boy I wish I had opened it earlier. lol There is a blog called Cameo Creations Challenge where all the challenges use the Silhouette machines...either the original SD or the Cameo. I thought I would give it a try. The May Challenge is Mother's Day..."create anything for the mommies you love". 

This is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Maroon, Gold and Light Blue
Silhouette Cameo
Bugaboo Stamps Cute Bee Flower
Spectrum Noir Markers
Darice Embossing Essentials Honeycomb Background
Inkadinkado Clear Stamps Expressions "Thinking of You"
Black Pigment Ink
Mounting Tape

The bee/flower is single mounted on the honeycomb background.

Now you may think that the sentiment is a little strange for a Mother's Day challenge, however I think it is very appropriate. I lost my mother over 21 years ago (22 in July) and there isn't a day still that I don't think about her. I miss her very much. 

I hope you like my "Cameo Creation". Thanks for dropping by and please leave a comment.

Get Well Soon Card

I thought I would share a card I made for a friend who just had an operation. I thought it would make her smile.

Finished Card: 6" x 6"

Cardstock: Two Shades of Red, Brown, Light Brown, White, Yellow, Green, Black and Patterned Paper
Silhouette Image Love Bug Bear
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Small Circle Punch
Fiskars All Year Greetings Clear Stamps, "For You"
Mounting Tape

Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large, 3rd Largest
Sentiment from Computer "Get Well Soon"

I single mounted the sentiment and the bear with flower.

I had to make an envelope for this card to fit...that was interesting to

I am also entering this card into a challenge at Cupcake Inspirations
This is the inspiration photo:

On a bright note, my friend is doing well and hopefully will be out of the hospital this week. :)

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment.

CardzTV Stamps "You've Got Mail" Blog Hop Day 1

Hi Everyone. Welcome to CardzTV "You've Got Mail" Blog Hop. If you have come from Susan, then you are in the right place. If you just happen to stop by and would like to start at the beginning, please click here. This hop is all about Mary's new stamp set "Snail Mail". Mary is also giving away TWO sets of stamps to the winner. That is just so generous and believe me, you will have a hard time making a choice...all the stamp sets are wonderful!!! 

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Green and Blue
Elizabeth Dulemba Coloring Pages Digital Image 2013 New Year's Stork
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Snail Mail, "Special Delivery"
Spectrum Noir Markers
Silhouette Cameo
Cricut Cartridge Elegant Edges Stamp page 37, Shadow Shift
Cricut Design Studio
Darice Embossing Essentials Cloudy Day
Mounting Tape

I hope you can see the embossed clouds in the blue background. The stork is also double mounted. I was thinking of putting the stork on an Action wobble, however, it didn't fit. I think it would have given a neat effect 

I feel like I used all my craft machines on this Cameo for cutting out the stork image, the Cricut for cutting the blue stamp image and the Big Kick for embossing the clouds.

Thank you dropping by. 
Please leave a comment.

Don't forget to stop in at CardzTV tomorrow for Day 2 of the Blog Hop and see what terrific projects the designers have come up with for Day 2.

Digi Haven Challenge "Mother's Day or Floral"

This week at Digi Haven is a Mother's Day or Floral Challenge. Our terrific sponsor is My Grafico. All the designers had a chance to use one of their images from the Fancy Flowers Set. 

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Lime and Patterned Paper
My Grafico Fancy Flowers Digital Stamps
Spectrum Noir Markers
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Happy Days, "Happy Mother's Day!"
Clear Rhinestones, 4 Small
Black Pigment Ink
Mounting Tape

I fussy cut the image out after I colored it, then single mounted it on the card. The picture doesn't do the dimension any justice.  I thought about using Glossy Accents on the mason jar image, but then decided that I liked it without the gloss...maybe on another card.

I, personally, lost my mother quite a few years ago...22 this July, to be exact. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her still. Fortunately, my husband still has his mother. So we could send this to her for Mother's Day. I think she might like this.

Now don't forget to join us in this challenge. You might win a stamp set from our sponsor, My Grafico. Challenge lasts 2 weeks.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. 

Happy Mother's Day!

CardzTV Stamps Challenge "There's No Other Like My Mother"

Mother's Day is just around the corner and here at CardzTV we have a challenge called "There's No Other Like My Mother" (Make a card, layout or project for Mother's Day). Now isn't that fun? Challenge will run for 2 weeks and Mary is giving away one of her stamp sets to the winner. 

Here is my project:

Cardstock: Two Shades of Green, Tan, Pink and Patterned Paper
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Happy Days, "Happy Mother's Day!"; Heart to Heart, "I Love You  (With All My Heart!)" and Simply Said, "Have a Great Day!"

Cricut Design Studio
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Darice Embossing Essentials Corner Scroll
Darice Embossing Essentials Heart
Metal Ring
Assorted Ribbon
Black Pigment Ink
Toilet Paper Rolls

This is a fun project that you could add a gift card to for your Mom (just tuck it in the back of the last tag).

I would like to thank Mary also because this project is based on an old project that she had made a while ago.

Flatten the toilet paper rolls. Cut to different sizes (3", 3 1/2" and 4"). Wrap each one with patterned paper. Cut out tags and emboss. Cut ovals and stamp. Add stamped ovals to embossed tags, then add ribbon. Cut out "Mom" and adhere to front of first holder. Make hole in corner and add eyelet. Repeat with each holder. Add metal ring and put tags in.

Hope you enjoy the project.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment.
