Two More Cards a Tip and a Free Studio Photo Corners File
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both our daughter Melanie today and also to my DEAR friend JanMary as well. Mel does not keep up her blog but JanMary has a GORGEOUS blog (with all her tales, photos and fabulous jewelery designs!) Won't you take a moment to visit her and leave some well wishes?
Still working hard to catch up on the 365 cards and it’s Mojo Monday too. I’ll post the 365 first:
Day 171 – Vintage Plus Pink
I used my friend KimB’s pretty “Just for Women” kit which is available for free on her blog site – the entire kit is simply gorgeous. Click on the preview of her kit to be taken to her blog!
Kim is a designer of digital scrapbooking kits, and if you’re a carder who has never worked with digital kits – here’s the good news. The kits consist of super high quality jpg and png files and you are able to bring these into your Silhouette software and trace the elements and print and cut! The Silhouette cuts out very nicely!
Kim has a lovely shop with many MANY kits and she’s also very generous with freebies too. Please leave her some ♥ if you download!
I printed the paper out and then cut it. I printed out the mannequin and the word arts. I stamped the mannequin with my Versamark Shimmer Stamp and then I heat embossed it with a clear powder.
My tip today is that you may notice I have lace behind the mannequin and I thought I’d share my secret to cutting the lace nice and straight – I run it right through my Fiskars Rotary slicer! Quick, easy and accurate!
Mojo Monday 205
And my take:
I used the last bits of my Moravia sheet of designer paper, thats the brown check and blue design (two sided) I cut the Brown Suede out using a jaggy blade with my Fiskars. Love this suede, just pretend you can run your fingers over this – so soft. I chose these colors and textures hoping this would appeal as a masculine card.
I cut the blue embossed cardstock and then used a Fiskars border punch. I then punched the holes and pulled the little tan dashed ribbon through. I cut three cardstocks using my Silhouette SD and then stamped and inked the sentiment. Last touches, sheer ribbon, frilly brown ribbon and then a bow of a mix of ribbons topped with a glue dot I made myself using my glue gun. Yep, that’s another tutorial I will share one day too. I think I’m going to have to start a “Tips” tab – what do you think?
And finally, I decided to squeeze out the last weensy remnant of nice paper so I designed some “photo corners” to decorate the inside of my card. Just dresses it up a bit. If you have a Silhouette –just click on the graphic of the inside of my card to download the .studio file for these corners – enjoy!
