Sweet turtle by Marji

So in love with this card!!!! I am so tickled with how it turned out.  Love those rich colors and the gorgeous flower from Pinque Peacock.
I had to put him on an action wobble for some fun.

Christmas in July

Hi, Carolyn with another weekly posting, and seems to be the theme all over blogland that July is "Christmas in July" so with the last Saturday of July, I decided to use the theme to share with you.  Using the jpeg image that was included with the file, I created a Santa card.  Here is my card:

cutting files include:  svg, pdf, jpeg, png, EPS and DXF

Supplies used:
In Silhouette Studio DE I open up the Santa file,  sized to what I wanted, and than printed it onto white card stock.  Once printed I used my Brother's Scan n Cut machine and cut out the Santa and the holly.  So easy to create your embellishments with this machine.

The frame cut out in red card stock (heavy cardstock) I created in Silhouette Studio DE and adhered to the white card base and inserted the subway art piece right into the square.

Hoo Loves School? Layout

Hi, I'm back to share another scrap page, using Hoo Loves School? from Scrapping with Lisa.  This page is for my granddaughter's scrapbook, as a page of her 6th grade year. (I am so behind in the school year section of their scrapbook!)


Supplies used:
  • Scrap page was purchased from the LSS that has since closed their doors (sad face insert)
  • Hoo Loves School? by Scrapping with Lisa Designs
  • Bic coloring markers used with Grey on the book pages from Copic; and metallic markers was used around the edges of the school books.
  • Flowers from a files of scrap papers print and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo/Studio Design Edition.
  • foam tape to pop up the title
I layered the photograph with blue cardstock; and substituted the font with one from my library as the original would not print from Design Edition.  After tweaking the title, I offset it to make the back shadow. I popped this up on the page with foam tape; and placed a flower on the edge.

Thank you for stopping to visit with us at Sunsational Stamps and happy crafting to all.  You're more than welcome to come on over to Granny Ma's Creative blog for more inspiration; and become a follower both here and at my blog.

Life is so sweet, by Marji

Hey there, I happy to share this fun card with you today using the pretty hummingbird image.
I used my pencils to color him in then painted him with a pearl paint for the luster.  I also added crystal effects to the center of the flower.
I dressed up the inside as well, using a rub on for the message

I used my SIL program and the patterns I have in there to fill in and color my image and create the shapes for the card itself.

Swinging By to Say Hi

Hello from Carolyn with a 3D Stand Up Card (or referred to as a Tent Card) using the newest image by Scrapping with Lisa Designs ....  Swinging By To Say Hi...

Front view

 Back view

Side view

Supplies used:
  • Abode Photoshop Elements 12 Brushes
  • 3D Stand Up Card by Lori Whitlock 
  • Silhouette Studio Design Edition software
  • software
  • Stick on buttons
  • Small silver brads from Stampin! Up
  • score tape
I traced the image in Silhouette Studio Design Edition and than copy and pasted the image into where I created a png image, deleting all the white areas without the image, as I wanted it to stand alone on the mat w/out the white areas showing.

In Abode Photoshop Elements I created a green grunge mat using the photoshop brushes (Grunge), saved as a jpeg and than loaded into my Silhouette Studio Design Edition.  Placed the mat on the 3D Stand Up cutfile; and than on a separate page I created the mat, placing the png image on the mat, after I created a oval for the swing to set on.  I colored the png image with copic, bic and Stampin! Up markers - the Bic marker I used for the swing set was going dry but was able to create the bleached look.

Created a Grunge - looking mat for the back side and placed the 2nd half of the sentiment (traced, ungrouped and divided the sentiment so I can place one part on front, and the 2nd half on back.)

The 3rd view if of the 3D Stand Up card from a side view showing how I attached the pieces together.  This card base can be cut out by hand (various utube videos out there with tutorials; and also there is tutorials on, but I wanted a cardbase that was easy to cut out and corrected size.  My first attempt at cutting this out was not a great cut...but I believe it was the cardstock used - too flimsy.

Pretty doll by Marji

I chose to use this sweet doll today, I used my SIL program to add the patterns to her.  I chose to do it this way instead of printing on different papers because this way I knew her bodice would be a smaller pattern and look a little better.
I gave her real pearls for her head band and necklace and pearl "roses"
