You've Got Me in Stitches

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have a fun new challenge on the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.
Along with using a die cut, we are also using stitching (faux or real.)

My project is this adorable Tiger Lily Gift Bag.  The file was provided by our challenge sponsor,
Fluerette Bloom.

I cut all the pieces on my Silhouette.  A little bit of rolling and inking was all that was needed to create this pretty flower with its leaves and bud.  I found the lily designer paper in my stash - love the colors!.  I used Jaded Blossom Rectangle dies 1 and 2 for the mats which provided the required stitching and also found the "stitched" ribbon in my stash.

Be sure to visit the Cut it Up Challenge blog to see more projects from Fluerette Bloom - she has some amazing cut files!!!!  And be sure to join us in the challenge for a chance to win a gift voucher to the Fluerette Bloom store.

Love and Sunflowers

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today is my design team day on the Paper Crafting World blog.

 I'm sharing a card that I made for a country wedding.  The bride loves red, white and blue, checkered plaid, bandanna print, and sunflowers.  This cut file from Paper Crafting World let me fill the bill!

I used American Craft and Paper Studio Yee Haw patterned papers and plain card stock from my stash.  The cut file is Card Daisies Sundflowers N Pennants.  I cut everything using my Silhouette.  The stamp is a Crafter's Companion cling set called Words of Wonder set 2.  I used Powder Puff chalk ink to stamp and also to shade the flowers, leaves, and mats.

Thanks so much for stopping in today.

Shades of Green

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for challenge # 117 "Think Green" at Cut It Up Challenge Blog.
Along with a die cut, we're asking you to use 3 shades of green.
I was lucky enough to be a comment winner at The Cutting Cafe and received this darling cut file as one of my images of choice.  

I used my Silhouette to cut the file and just added some twine, doodling, and epoxy dots -easy peasy and I love the way it turned out.

Love Me, Love Me Not

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my day to post on the Paper Crafting World blog.

I am so ready for spring, how about you?

Today I'm sharing a cute little digi file that can be for spring, Easter, or just to say, "I love you."

This file is Bunny, He Loves Me DS which can be found in the
Paper Crafting World store.  Just click the link to go directly to the file.

Everything used on this card is from my craft stash.  The pattern paper is a scrap from Authentique.  The "love" is a chippie from Make It Crafty.  I love these because you can color them so easily with Copic markers so that they match your design.  The filigree flower is a LaLa Land die.  And, of course, I colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Please visit the PCW store for your spring and Easter cut file and digi projects.  There are so many to choose from.
