Aunt Millie's Birthday


I had been using Pic Monkey to edit my cards and add my watermark.  The last time I used it was Sept. 7th and I didn't have any problems at all.  When I tried today, it let me add the watermark, but wouldn't let me save it without a subscription.  I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if they changed their policy.  REALLY disappointed, but I'll get over it and have my daughter help me next time she is home!

I made this card for my hubby's aunts birthday.  I used Splitcoaststampers tutorial to create the circle easel card...this is my 1st easel card and I love how it turned out!  The image I used is called Silhouette Butterfly from Bugaboo Stamps.  I imported it into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out.  I added star dust stickles to some of the flowers and 3 orange gems from Hobby Lobby.  I used SB large scalloped and circle dies and Sizzix #9 flourish die.  The sentiment I created on my Silhouette Mint (AWESOME investment) and spiced marmalade distress ink.

Cruise Pics

We are back from our fabulous cruise!  We were suppose to be going to the Eastern Caribbean, but because of hurricane Maria we went to the Western Caribbean.  Our ports were Ocho Rios Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Roatan Honduras, and Cozumel.  This was our 1st time cruising and we loved it!  I've made a collage of our trip...from top to bottom

Leaving Port of Miami, hubby and I dressed for our nephews wedding, Bride and Groom, return scene to Miami, sunset at sea, beach at Grand Cayman, our Bon Voyage pic, monkey la la drink (SO YUMMY), port at Roatan Honduras.

We went on a zip line tour and climbed Dunn Falls in Jamaica, Royal Palms beach and jet skis on Grand Cayman, ocean horseback riding and private beach in Roatan, shopping and wedding in Cozumel.

Billy's Birthday Card

This is my 2nd post today...that NEVER happens!  But to be fair I did make the baby card yesterday, just didn't get it posted.  We are celebrating our son's birthday this weekend (it's Aug 4th), because they live 3 hrs away and he has this Sunday off.  This image is Video Game Guy from Bugaboo Stamps and is PERFECT for Billy!  I was one of their top 3 winners a few weeks ago and this is one of the images I chose:)  He is colored with copics and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #116.  Striped digital paper is from Doodle Pantry (no longer in business), polkadot from my stash, lime green by Bo Bunny, and blue cs by Craft Smith blues 12x12 pad.  I googled the film strip, imported it into Silhouette Studio, traced, and cut out, the "candy dots" are perler beads that I melted.  Happy Birthday sentiment is a freebie at Birds Cards, cut out with The Stamps of Life large stitched circle die, and matted with SB large circle die.

50th Anniversary

Today card is for my in-laws who will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary on July 15th!  They do not want a party so we are planning to take them to Vegas sometime this fall...just their boys and spouses!

I was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest.  I googled champagne glasses, imported them into Silhouette Studio to trace/cut out, I duplicated the glasses, edited to make the center cut for the shaker part, and cut out acetate for the "glass part".  I used double sided sticky foam board to mount the front and back of the glasses to and gold glitter for the "champagne".  Fancy label and 50 cut out on my Cameo, heat embossed in gold Happy Anniversary, divine swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and organza ribbon by The Ribbon Boutique.  All papers are Recollections from Michael's.

Chelsea's Birthday

 
Today's card is for my DIL's birthday next week.  Purple is her favorite color, so I'm sure she will love it!  This is Cowboy Dottie from Bugaboo Stamps (I couldn't find her in their new store).  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch Challenge #511 at Catch the Bug.  I colored her with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched oval die, and the scalloped mat was cut on my Cameo with a nesting image from the Silhouette Store.  The purple dp is from Cocoamint at her Etsy Shop, green plaid is The Paper Studio The Basics 12x12 pad, and purple and green cs from Hobby Lobby.  I used vintage photo distress ink around all the edges, lavender stickles on her belt and boots, and stamped the Happy Birthday (by Paper & Such) with dusty concord distress ink.  Fiskars scalloped punch, lime jute trim, and cowboy hat button from Hobby Lobby.

I made this card for a friend's daughter who is getting married...her colors are navy and gold.  I found this cake topper image when I did a google search, which  I imported it into Silhouette Studio, traced, and cut it out.  The hearts are a Silhouette image.  I used Cuttlebug divine swirl embossing folder and heat embossed the sentiment.  Navy cs from Craft & Smith blues 12x12 pad and gold paper from Recollections.

Hubby's Father's Day Card

I thought this would be the perfect image for DH Father's Day card.  This past spring we bought a couple steers to raise, so of course, he had to get a new tractor!  His is a little newer than this one, as it has a cab (with air conditioning and a radio!), a front bucket, hay fork, and brushhog!  I included a picture of his tractor.

Anyhow, on to my card!  I chose "Got Tractor" and "Hay Bale" pre-colored images from Doodle Pantry...unfortunately she closed her shop:(  The layout is for Mojo Monday Sketch #500, which is her last challenge.  The image is cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  I imported the hay bales into Silhouette Studio to add the text, print, and cut out.  The red dp is from Bo Bunny, striped and straw paper from The Paper Studio, as is the teal and black cs.  Burlap strips colored with copics and gear embossing folder from Darice.  I used dried marigold distress ink around the image and hay bales.

Father's Day

Today's card is my FIL's Father's Day card.  I CASEd one I found on Pinterest, hers was a birthday card tho.  I used The Open Sea set from Stampin' Up! and did the "triple time stamping" technique.  The layers are 2x3 1/4, 3x4 1/4, and 4x5 1/4.  I used temporary adhesive to glue them together, then did my stamping.  I stamped with Color Box in Putty and Black Soot distress ink.  Cut a mat for each layer 1/4" larger from black cs.  Referee bakers twine and sentiment from Paper and Such (couldn't find their link to post).

QKR Stampede Challenge #241

Can you believe it's the last Friday of April already???  It's also time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede and our optional twist this week is "Wheels".  I chose Train for my image, colored with copics, lots of gold wink of stella, glossy accents for the light on top, and hickory smoke distress ink.  I cut it out with Lawn Fawn large stitched oval, mat cut on the Cameo, and banners by hand.  Travel paper by The Paper Studio, train blueprint from Tim Holtz Destination pad, black cs and kraft paper from my stash.  I stamped the kraft paper with versa mark ink and steampunk embossing folder on the back cs.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
