A Pretty Cut for YOU!

I’m sneaking in a blog post - I say sneaking because the weather is so beautiful here today that I am kicking my own backside out the door for a portion of the day, camera in hand, of course so I can share some of the loveliness with YOU!  And, it sounds like this weather will be disappearing in a day or two, so enjoy for now. 

First things first, I would like to share a pretty anniversary card my friend Marilyn who I met through the Silhouette Plus forums - a great creative place to be!

Don’t you just love those cherries?  They look like they are ready to pick right off the card.  I am sure the happy couple will treasure this greeting, looks totally “frame worthy” Thanks Marilyn! 

If YOU have a card you’ve created with any of my cuts I’d ♥ to feature you here, just send me a jpg at lalalime(at)hotmail<dot>com

And I need to share another card I made for World Card Day which I created with my sister Nina while on vacation.  No internet connection at that time so only posting now.  Had to play with our new supplies, right?

Supplies:

Paper - Indie Chic by My Mind’s Eye

Cardstock

Stamp - Prima Clear Stamps #550936 (keys) I purchased this stamp at Paper Nation - my favourite store of all!

Stamp - Get Well - borrowed from Nina’s collection so I’m sure she will let me know to update here. 

Ribbon

So just a simple greeting.  Sometimes less is better, I tend to get fussy!

And now, I’ll post some photos of my latest design - I actually created four different looks so you can see how simply using different papers can give it a unique look as well.  I think my dandelion cut would be ideal for a vinyl project as well.

Stamp - Fiskars

I think this second picture shows up the beautiful sparkles of this Fantasy Shimmer paper I bought at a dollar store.  It worked perfectly with the embossing and as you will see in the following cards, it cuts nicely on my Silhouette.  Because the glitter is so fine it cut on just a setting of 3 on the blade.

With a soft and completely different look.  These little seeds are so very fine, my Cameo has no problem cutting the tiniest details! 

Stamp - Studio G

Stamp - TPC Studios Celebrations

Embossing Folder by Crafts-Too

My Mr always favors anything black silhouette - he always says they are effective.  What do YOU think? 

Note: I’ve included two different .studio files for the dandelion and seeds, one set is BIG, the other is both items together and cut to fit a typical 1/4 fold card size - including 4 ‘seeds’ ( I put one inside my card as well)
