Ice cream cone birthday cards!

I made these fun birthday cards with a file designed on Silhouette

and some of My Craft Spot metal dies.  

I covered the icecream and flower with glossy accents (rub a light coat on with your finger) and then sprinkled with glitter.

Happy Crafting!

May you find peace . . .

I made these cards for some sweet friends who have been going through some very hard times. One lost her husband at a young age and the other a dear son. I feel so sad for them!

I cut a circle out of the center of the patterned paper

and added some silhouette cuts, some twine, and a button to frame the sentiment.

I did some stitching around both cards and added some gems.

This is the card I made first and it doesn't have as many embellishments.

 I inked the edges with a little bit of white.

Happy crafting!

A couple of tags . . .

I made this cut file in Silhouette Studio by scanning a two piece tag from a piece of clothing I bought and then traced it (Butterfly icon) Fun, right?

The "Congrats" die cut is 5 layers. 

 I just cut it 5 times and then glued the layers together.

The tag I scanned in had the brand name where I stamped the word "Enjoy!"

It made me think about what a fun tag it would make for a gift!

I used dimensionals and stamped this butterfly stamp from Close to my Heart.

Happy crafting!

Have a happy day!

Valentine's Pillow Boxes

Pillow Boxes are so fun and easy!

I cut this pillow box at 6" from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

The hearts and swirly border are die cut.

I stamped the sentiment with a permanent black ink and inked all of the edges with Walnut distress ink.

I cut the paper borders along the bottom with a paper cutter and then hand trimmed the edges so they would match the curve of the pillow box.

I'm going to fill these with truffles and send them to my daughter and her missionary companions. :)

I hope they love chocolate!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Snowmen birthday card

My sweet daughter-in-law and I made some fun Winter birthday cards together!  Same card . . . different colors.  This is the card my daughter-in-law made.  Isn't it cute?!

The cut file is from My Scrap Chick.  There is even a tutorial.

This is the card I made:

I inked around the edges of the scarf piece and nose and then added a little chalk for the cheeks.

It's an easel card!

Have a happy day!
