 Thinking Spring

Layout Challenge

 
One page layout of my granddaughter dressed for her first Semi-formal Dance.  I used two patterned papers, a border punch along the edge of paper, a doily to place the photo into and the sentiment purchased from SilhouetteAmerica online store.  Three buttons to accent the doily.

New releases at The Stamping Chef

Good morning… peeps….I would like to share with you two new releases at The Stamping Chef store….

Retro Girl          

This is the Retro Girl…from the Hippie era….using my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, I placed her on the mat, traced around her, and than cut her out using the PnC technique.  And since this is from the 70-80’s era, I printed out ‘Love’ and placed on a oval label and inserted two flowers on each end with a bronze colored brad.  I layered her onto paper with the Peace symbol on it and layered onto a shape card.

  Ally O’Malley        

This is the second image to be released on March 12th.  I used Sukura gel-pens to color in the top and my Copic markers for her jeans/shorts.  I layered mats onto a black card base, and placed a ribbon across her mid-section.  Printed and punched out a Birthday wishes tag.
Thank you for stopping by, and blessings to you all.

Mirror Mirror — Mother’s Day Challenge

Mirror Mirror

This was really cute to cut out and create. Here is what I done:

I loaded the image into my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, traced it to remove the white background, and than printed it on my HP printer. Once it was printed, I placed on a mat and inserted into my Cameo for cutting out…actually just made sure the cut style was selected first, and than cut around. First make sure the registration marks is selected so the Cameo can locate it to cut correctly.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers I colored in shades of blue with the shoes and belt colored black and than filled in with a black gel-pen to hopefully give it the patent look.

I’m not sure what software I used to create the card base and the 2 mats but it’s a oval shape card base and the oval frame mats layered onto the card. The standing mirror I found on the SilhouetteAmerica.com online store.

Placing the mirror onto the card stock with the oval frame mats centered over it, I than placed the image on foam tape to the right. While in Wal-mart shopping, I located the ribbon flowers in the ribbon section of the sewing department, purchased some cute ones, and placed the two ribbons flowers onto the lower left of the frame mat. The swirly flouish, located on my SSDE software, I made it smaller and cut out and placed onto the top left of the mat.

I did not place a sentiment on the front…thought it looked great without. It would make a great card for birthdays or Mother’s Day…for someone special in you life.

Thank you for stopping by and hugs to all on this dreary rainy day.

Sous Chef – The Stamping Chef DT

I
Mimi Digital Stamp
where I have been selected to join the Design Team mainly working with her new releases that come out weekly.  But this week we are creating cards in place of a new release this week, and since this is my first card and first image from The Stamping Chef I chose Mimi digital image.  I used my new Spectrum Noir markers to color in the image.  The flowers I made some time back after watching a video on youtube.com and I apologize for not knowing the creator of the video.
I brought up the digital image into my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to print and cut and placed on a blackout cut out.    I placed the flowers, image and sentiment on a scalloped circle that is placed over a circular card base.  Leaves are from the Make the Cut gallery. Cardstock is from Joann’s Fabrics Scrapbook section and the design paper from my scrap stash.
Thank you for stopping by, and hugs to all.
