Work Bench Card

Card Front
Inside Pop-Up
My son's birthday is next month.  And for inspiration, I enjoy my Silhouette Cameo when it comes to making shape cards.  This pop up card is a Lori Whitlock file in the online Silhouette store; the measuring tape is from a separate file.  I designed the ruler, his name plate, small piece of string to look like twine, some splatters to look like stains and the best part, a honey-do list tacked to the bench front; I enlisted his wife to let me know some of the projects she wants completed in their new home.  The paper is Stampin'Up! crumb cake, real red and shiny silver for tools.
Thanks for stopping by...

I made this card last night for a former co-worker's wife who was diagnosed with breast cancer.  The stamp is Hello Doily background stamp and the others are from the set Strength & Hope.  The colors are Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  All materials are Stampin' Up!

By The Tide

Life's simple beauty can be found all around you and the ocean is one of my favorite spots!
This is a card I designed on a rainy day in Charleston.  The materials are all Stampin' Up! except for the nautilus shell/saying by Close To My heart.  This is a side split easel card and the shells were fussy cut to hold the flap while up.

Tea Pots Anyone?

These first two pots have a rose pattern cut out for decoration.

Tea Pots are a current theme and here are a few I made today.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut our the 'parts' then decorated in different ways.  The saying and embellishments can be changed to suit your need.

 You may not can tell, but this is a shaker card and the sand on the treasure chest is tiny beads that move around.

I have this thing for lighthouses...anyone who has been in my home can see that very clearly.  My father was in the Navy so I grew up near beaches in several cities on the east coast.

Get Well Card-in-a-Box

Took two pictures of this box so you could see the scissors and stethoscope.  I love the little own punch as you can dress it up for whatever occasion.

Garden Scene

I've been enjoying making cards for the spring season.  I love my cloud stamp which covers the page and the wheelbarrow.  Reminds me of my grandmother's farm in Alabama where I spent summers as a youth.

Apron Card

I love my Silhouette Cameo!  All of these pieces were cut using it, including the card and inserts.  There are so many variations to use when it comes to paper.

Cinderella's Castle

Good Tuesday morning!  Another card in a box, which I love..
The papers are by Stampin'Up! and the castle, carriage and horse are cutting files on my Silhouette Cameo.  I'm thinking a cute card for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday in May.

Another Card in a Box!

I can't help myself!  These card in a box turn out so nice and your imagination is the limit for decorating.  This one uses Zoo Babies stamp set by Stampin'Up! and all other materials are also Stampin'Up!  To keep from having to cut the animals, I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut them...thanks for stopping by.

Card In A Box-flowers, bird and butterflies

This is my take on the newest thing, a card in a box.  Everything is StampinUp.  I really like this card because it is pretty easy to make and it gives a lot of surprise to the recipient!  I plan on making more of these; instructions are all over Pinterest.
Thanks for stopping by......

This is my take on a tutorial at the Silhouette site; it was so cute I had to make it.  Everything was cute and printed in Silhouette using white sticker paper for the snowflakes, Stampin'Up papers for everything else and a little fuzzy ball thing for the end of the hat.  For the hat and scarf, I used stickles to pop them out.  If you can't tell from the picture, those are ear muffs under the hat.  THANKS for stopping by....

Baby Valentine

Feeling better now and on to Valentine cards....this doesn't mean there won't be any more Christmas cards as I am planning to enter the Pee Dee Artisan Market in November in Florence, SC for a one day event...wish me luck!
This is a card I designed for a friends grandson, John.  Although the papers and stamp are by Stampin'Up, I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut the whale then added the sentiment. Stampin'Up has begun making SVG files that can be converted and used in Silhouette (that is why the whale is larger than the regular stamp itself)   I used Zig clear wink of Stella glitter pen to pop out the hearts and water spout.  THANKS for stopping by....
