Fabric Coaster

TGIF!  Happy Friday!  I hope you are enjoying your day.  Today is Fabric Friday and since we are celebrating Christmas in July, I am making a gift with fabric.  I made this on my embroidery machine and it was a fast craft.
Who says that Christmas gift must be in the traditional colors. Not me!

I could easily make a set of coasters for my friends for Christmas.  It can be done with the family's initials or an appliqué.  The possibilities are endless.  
Have a great day and see you tomorrow for the last day of Christmas in July!

Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Happy Thursday! One of my favorite activities to do in the winter is to play in the snow so I had to create a snowflake card.  
I found this penny slider card on the silhouette online store from my favorite designer.  If you don't  have a silhouette but have a Cricut Explore, you can buy this cut file to use with your cricut.  

I love using one color family to make a card.  The snowflake paper is from  Martha Stewart stack and the other blues are from Stampin Up.  

I usually will use my handwriting for sentiments in small spaces but I just could not pull it off.  I typed this in MS Word and used a Stampin Up punch to perfect my sentinment.
I hope you have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow!

Peace on Earth

Happy Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  As most of you know we are working on Christmas in July and we are almost half way there.  I used this stamp set yesterday and today I decided to pull the other sentiment from Peaceful Season.

I picked colored that were rich and earthy tone.  The bottom striped paper is from SU and it is cut to 2 1/2" x 4 1/4".  I added details with a white gel pen.  I wrapped satin ribbon around the entire card base front and added a faux bow.  Lastly, I colored the Earth from Peaceful Season and poured glossy accents on it.
Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!

Season's Greetings

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are having a great start to your day.
I have been trying to get back into my card making groove by looking through my old cards.  One particular year, it seemed very easy and I was on roll.  Shortly after that my family expanded and I became really exhausted.  I am just now getting my second wind and I feel better. I hope to 
keep this momentum.

Easy card for today.  The masking technique is old one but a good one.  
I started off with stamping the flowers and the stamping the same flowers on scrap paper.  I then cut out the scrap paper flowers and adhered them on top of the stamped flowers.  Then I stamped the leaves randomly on the top of the flowers.  This technique protects the flowers from the other ink.

One of the best sentiment sets out there.  I love the scroll look.  At the bottom I added faux pearls with this stuff called liquid pearls.  You can find it at most crafts stores but the ink.

I added pearls to the center of each flower.  I love this simple card.  Have a great day and see you tomorrow!

Happy Sunday!  I do not mean to scare you but Christmas is in 157 days.  SCARY!  A tradition I have on my blog is to get a head start in July.  Yes, it is Christmas in July.  This week will be all about Christmas including Fabric Friday.  I am so excited.  I am pulling out old stamps and cartridges to make the week special.  I hope you will join me for seven days of Christmas.
My first card is a ladder card and it was very simple to make.  You will find a list of cartridges and card dimension at the bottom of this post.

I cut this snowman at 3 inch and deleted the face so I would have a place to stamp.

To add details get a fine tip markers and add fun character embellishments.

Here is a close up on his cute face.   Have a great day and join me tomorrow!

Happy Saturday!  I know yesterday was Fabric Friday, however, I was plenty busy with my family.  While out shopping my little one picked the dress out and I embroidered some cute items on it.
Enjoy your day!  See you on Sunday!

you're sweet

Happy Thursday!!!
Today is one of my favorite types of days.  It is pouring outside and I can use the dark day to get some rest.  I wanted to upload this card I made on Monday.  Yes, Monday!  

At the very bottom of this post you can find the dimensions to my layers for this card.  Everyone knows that Artiste is my favorite cartridge, however another favorite is Create a Critter.  
I found this cute guy on that cartridge and since I had a honeycomb background, he is perfect!

Do not be afraid to use your handwriting in projects.  My handwriting is not the best but it works for me.
In the cricut craft room delete portions of the design and add your personal touch.  I used Peachy Keen Cute and Cuddly stamp for this little guy's face.  

I hope you have a fantastic day and check back in tomorrow for Fabric Friday.
