Daughter-in-law's Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Yesterday was my daughter-in-law's 40th birthday and I created this card for her which I have not given to her yet because I finished it last evening.



The floral image I colored, using a ipad app called recolor.  I have to confess that I erased the hand/arm from the center as I didn't find it appealing!!  I printed it out using Adobe Photoshop Elements, and than cut the image with Brother's Scan 'n Cut (which I will be using more as my Cameo for some reason will not recognize the registration marks when print n cut).

I have the ribbon in my Silhouette Studio library so brought it up and sized it to fit the card, and before applying to the front, I sprayed it with glitter paint.  Apologize for the smeared look because of handling it.

Here is the inside of the card....



The birthday presents are by miss kate cuttables.  I used the jpeg file included with the cutfile and finding a verse on the Internet, I printed and  once again using my Brother's Scan 'n Cut machine, cut it out and placed in the center.

I will be posting more of my projects as I finished them.  Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and God bless you all.

Calendar Headings

I am in the process of creating calendar headings for a yearly calendar.  I color the headings on my iPad using the app ReColor (type in recolor in your app store and it will come up with the download link.)

Here is April ... I have January, February and March finished but have to locate the file on my flashdrive.



Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, which is going to be nice spring day in February in Alabama.  Blessings to you all.

A Shelf Card with a Valentine's Day theme

Heart Shelf Card

This is a pretty card cut file, but putting it together  was time consuming for me.  All the bending and twisting to get the pieces in to the slits was somewhat difficult.  So, all in all, I probably will not make this card very often.  

This was included in the Creative Kuts Card Train for February.  I actually cut this out 3 to 4 times because of the sizing.  Once I got the size I wanted, it's a great looking card.  I used stickers for embellishments that I purchased at the local Hobby Lobby.  Stamped sentiment from Stampin' Up catalog; and paper/cardstock from my stash of paper pads.

Thank you for taking time to visit with me, and blessings to all.

Another Swing Card - with a Heart/s

Heart Swing Card .  I stamped 'wishing you a' sentiment  on the white Heart layered on the red heard.  Placed a heart sticker and three gem stones below the sentiment.  And stamped the Happy Valentine's Day Sentiment in the corner of card.  I used my chomper, the 'cloud' design and cut each corner.  
 This is the front view of the Heart Swing card, showing the layered heart with a sticker applied to the center of the white Heart
This is the same card standing with the inside of the swing heart facing out to see better.  Another sticker applied just above the Happy Valentine's Day' Sentiment.

Red texture/linen type card purchased either from Tuesday Mornings or from Country Craft Creations.  The design card stock is from a 12x12 paper pad by First Edition and purchased from Hobby Lobby.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me this evening, and hope you all have a blessed week.
