First Retirement card

This card was really hard for me to do.  It's for a co-worker that I don't know very well.  He doesn't have any hobbies that he talks about.  He doesn't want a big to do with leaving the company either.  The base is a soft yellow paper that I embossed with a wood-grain texture and then inked over top.  the dark brown is embossed with a diamond pattern.  The adirondacks chair is a print & cut file that I did with the cameo.  I did make this card with Sizzex pop & cuts.  I just got them from a scrapbook expo.

Wedding season 2013

It is the start of Wedding season.  This is a special request that I did over the weekend.  The colors are the colors of the wedding.  The cake is a svg file that I had that I edited to better fit the card.  The cake is popped out from the base.  The names were cut using my Cameo.

3 Card weekend

It's been a cold and rainy/snowy weekend here.  It helped me to get into my craft room and get so more cards made.     I made three different cards.

The first is a simple Hello card.  The stamps are all from Stamping Ups "Pendant Park".  The HELLO and the bench is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.  The tree is stamped with a olive green by Studio G.  The ribbon is brown and have corresponding brown pearls.

The next card is a fun spring card.  The font label was created on the Silhouette.  The rest is cut out using Cricut.  The strawberry is from Indie Art, the leaves behind are from Joys of the Season and the flowers are from Picturesque.  There is bakers twine over a lace ribbon.

 The third card is a Get Well card.  The Band-Aid is from Indie Art is well.  The red is embossed with diamond plate.  There is black ribbon that is underneath the bakers twine.  The center of the Band-Aid is raise with pop dots.

Birthday Card with Cameo

I just recently bought a Cameo.  I am really loving the ability to make my own designs and to share designs with others.  I still have a lot to learn but will share the results as I go.  There is so much more that I could do with this design but I wanted to show off the detail of the cuts that the Cameo can do.

Spring butterflies

Spring has finally arrived here and I have been inspired to create some cards with spring as the theme.
 This was created with Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Die Butterflies Circles.  I reused the small cut-outs on the front of the card.  The two larger butterflies I found at a show a while ago.  I really like how this turned out.
