Just A Butterfly Card




Hi everyone!  Here is a card I made with my Silhouette Cameo.  The finished size is about 6”w x 5.5 “ tall.  All the patterned paper is from the DCWV The Sweet Blossom stack.  The regular cardstock is from my stash.  All the cuts are from the Silhouette of America online store:  I have a monthly membership.  It is a really great deal and I always find everything and anything I need!  TFL!

Best Wishes-Folk Art Festival


Good Day!  I have another Folk Art Festival card made with my Cricut.  The paper for this is another DCWV stack-Coral Couture.  The finished size is 6”wide x 4”tall.  The card front is popped up with pop dots. The little tag/label on the front is cut with my Silhouette.  The sentiment is stamped and the flower is the Reflections brand from Michaels.  TFL!

Butterfly Wreath

I was inspired to make this pink and zebra butterfly wreath from a magazine I saw.  The finished size is about 6 inches around.
I bought a piece of Styrofoam that is about 12”x12”x1/2”.  I cut circles with my Silhouette and drew them on my Styrofoam to use as guides.  Then I cut out the wreath shape with my craft knife.  I picked out a fabric I liked to cover the circle with.  That is the pink zebra print.  I cut it in 1”x 12” strips and then just started wrapping.  I added hot glue here and there to keep the strips of fabric where I wanted them.  You gotta be careful with hot glue and Stryofoam.  They are not best friends…lol.   I added bakers twine to hang it with next.  Then I layered the back fabric with some hot glue.
I tied a pink strip of fabric around the front, middle.  I knew I wanted to add some kind of embellie later.  I die cut different sizes of butterflies on my Silhouette.  I also punched some with my Martha Stewart punches.  I embossed them with various Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folders. Then I misted them with Glitter Mist.  I added to the wreath with hot glue.  Lastly, I added a safety pin with some sequins and some charms on it to the piece of pink fabric.  TFL!

Hello-Chevron rolled rose card

The paper line for this card was just so fun!  I just love me my paper stacks!  This one is by DCWV.  I got it at Michaels and it is called “The Create Collection”.  It has printed vellum and stickers and the paper is fabulous!  And you can’t go wrong with the Fontopia Cricut cartridge.  It practically did all the work for me Smile
The card and the card front are the Fontopia cart.  The rolled rose was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  I free handed the leaves.  And I used Cat’s Eye ink around the edges.  The letters are stickers by EK Success.

Wise Men Still Seek Him

These are some glass blocks I did for Christmas gifts.  I did them for dear friends that are really more like family.  I don’t get to see them very often because life is so busy, but when I do, my heart sings.
I got the glass blocks from Michaels.  The designs were cut on my Silhouette Cameo with designs purchased from the Silhouette store.  I put in indoor Christmas lights.  I just love how they look when they are lit up.  TFL!
