Big Faith! for The Cutting Cafe

Hello, fellow crafters.  I'm posting today for The Cutting Cafe.  The design team this time, is featuring Silhouettes.  You'll find a variety of silhouettes used in many different ways.  The Silhouette Digital Stamp set & Cutting File is found here.

There are many fun images in the file, but I decided to use a silhouette as a background to create this:

The sentiment is from a custom set I purchased at The Cutting Cafe Shop.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto the black silhouette

The cancer-themed background paper on this card is from Imagine That! Digistamp. The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM and the button is from my stash.

Please visit the Cutting Cafe blog on or after July 21 to see the rest of the Silhouette creations from the design team.  Leave a comment and you could win 3 sets of your choice.  Always visit the Cutting Cafe - Be Inspired Facebook Group for more fun, news, and inspiration.

Sunflower Sneak Peek

Hello, and happy Tuesday!  I'm on the Pickled Potpourri blog today with a Sunflower Mini Gram.  I'd love it if you'd check it out and leave a comment.

Here's a sneak peek of it all:

For My Friend -- and Crafty Sentiments Designs

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog. This week, you have a choice in themes.  Either go CAS or Fussy & Fancy with your project.

I used the Crafty  Sentiments Designs rubber stamp, 'This Rose' to create this for the challenge, going for the Fussy & Fancy theme:

I colored the rubber stamp, This Rose, with Copic markers, then used a Die-namics stitched die to cut it out.  The background paper is from Paper Wishes.  The card base was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, using an SVG file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I layered up a couple of different laces from my stash to match the paper.

I hope you can join us this week at Crafty Sentiments Challenge for our CAS or Fussy & Fancy Challenge.

Wishing You a Beautiful Birthday -- for Imagine That! Digistamp

It's time for a bit of mid-month inspiration over at the Imagine That! Digistamp Creative Playground.  As always, if you use an Imagine That! Digistamp image on your project, you get a great digistamp for free.  This month's is awesome!

I made a birthday card for a friend of mine for this month's challenge.  Here it is:

I used a pre-colored image from the Fuchsia & Hummingbird digital stamp set. The sentiment is also part of the Fuchsia & Hummingbird set.  Papers for this card, also from Imagine That! Digistamp, are part of the Sweet Pastels Paper Pack.

Shakin' the Halls this Christmas -- for MHKDesigns

Happy Thursday, crafty friends!  I'm on the MHKDesigns blog today where there's a Christmas in July theme going on.  I'm shaking things up a bit with a shaker card!

  I always think they are so fun!

 I used MHKDesigns Deck The Halls digital stamp set for the holly and the sentiment.  The papers, also from MHKDesigns, are Simply Seasonal Digital Papers

Have you entered this month's MHKDesigns challenge yet?  It's anything goes, as long as you use an MHKDesigns image.  We're not quite 1/2 way through the month, so there's still plenty of time.  Check out the MHKDesigners & Friends Facebook Group, too, for even more inspiration. #mhkdesigns is now on Instagram, too!

Dear Friend -- for QKR Stampede

It's Friday, and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede challenge blog.  I'm traveling across the state to a friend's house today, and this card is making the trip with me, along with a hostess gift.  It works great for the Anything Goes challenge this week at QKR Stampede.

This card uses a digital stamp from the sister company, Eureka Stamps. It's Dear Friend (Es-digi56501), colored with Comic markers, then fussy cut, framed with black card stock, then put on a another piece of card stock.  It was a quick color and a quick-to-assemble card, but a gorgeous image! Eureka Stamps has a number of these, and I reach for them often. 

I hope you join our "anything goes" challenge this week at QKR Stampede.  We have great prizes, and I'd love to see what you make!
