Day 636

This card is one that looks better in person. It is a another use what I have card. I have a ton of handmade paper scraps that I bought somewhere along the line. So I put a piece on a blue card and then just printed the congratulations.

Day 634

This sheep has been cut out and ready to use for some time now, along with the rest of his flock. :O)The sheeps body is gemstone paper, the flower and the sheeps eyes are vinyl. I don't remember where the file came from but it was a purchased file. I love his expression!

Day 633

Another simple card made trying to use up existing supplies. I have come to the conclusion it won't happen in my life time. The paper is from a stack of DCWV La Creme paper. The black and cream piece is flocked. The Happy Birthday is Passion Conflict font cut from vinyl.

Day 632

This card was made using a tutorial from SplitCoast Stampers. You take a paper napkin, seperate it from it's backing and iron saran wrap to the back of it to give it a more handmade paper look. In my opinion, unless I had no paper and REALLY needed to make a card, I wouldn't go through the work to do this again. :O)
The lettering is cut from vinyl.

Day 631

Another card that is much sweeter in person. I fell in love with these birds and decided to cut some small for a card and some big for the wall. Once I had them cut for the card I tried to find the perfect paper and every patterned paper seemed to distract from the birds. So I grabbed one of my kraft paper cards and it seemed  to be a perfect fit. How easy...kraft paper and black vinyl.

Day 630

Isn't this the cutest little dog??? This was originally a digital stamp that I converted to a KNK cutting file. I cut the dog from black vinyl and applied it to white textured cardstock .

Day 629

I made this card using a free file from My Scrap Chick .
I changed the words a bit. The bat is black cardstock, the eyes, ears, cheeks, fangs, and letters are vinyl.
When I finished it I thought that it would make a cute vinyl wall decal for the little people in my life so I made this. They are 12inches wide and 5 inches tall. My grandson Gavin was happy because not only was it a bat, it was a vampire bat!

Day 628

My daughter and family just moved and are temporaily staying in a house my brother owns until they can either find a house to buy or they will build. He wanted some car things for his room, something that we can out up and take down without much effort. This Lightning McQueen car wa made from a free SVG which I converted to a KNK and cut using my KNK Maxx. It has 3 layers of vinyl. I was definitly more impressed than my grandson. :O)

Day 627

I am not sure where I got this file from as it has no name attached to it. It was called the oval flower frame. After I cut it, I noticed a couple of the scallops were flat on the end, so I edited the cutting file for future use. The paper is all coredinations and the flower centers are vinyl.

Day 626

This card was made using a technique that I saw on another blog. It uses the Quikutz metal sheets, the Cuttlebug, and alcohol ink. You apply alcohol ink to the metal and let it dry, run it through the cuttlebug using what ever folder you desire, and then lightly sand it. It turns out gorgeous, the problem is even though I let this sit for a week, the color rubs off when you work with it.

Day 625

This card was made using a Numbers cutting file from My Vinyl Designer. I welded the 5 and the 0 together and then just added the words "Over the Hill" to the middle section. It was cut from vinyl using my Klic n Kut.

Day 624

This card was also made with a free file that I found on line. I thought it was so sweet! The graphic is all cut from vinyl and applied to the pink cardstock. When I applied it, it was a bit off center so I added the ribbon to balance it out. :O)
It would make a cute "Thanks A Latte" card.

Day 623

This card was made with a free file that I found online. I cut the cat from vinyl using my Klic n Kut and applied him to cardstock. Such a simple card! The cat reminds me of the cat that lives in our house. :O)

Day 622

I have used this dragon before on a card, I have a tendency to cut more than one pattern piecing file when I cut them. I love dragons and this guy is so sweet!
The paper is all coredinations, the teeth and toenails gemstone, and the eyes are vinyl. It was cut using my Klic N Kut.
This card will probably be a Birthday card for one of the little people in my life. :O) I do not remember what company I bought the file from.

Day 621

I think I have mentioned more than once that when I got my KNK and then a scalloped circle file, I thought it was the best thing ever! I must have cut 100 or more scalloped circles in all sizes and colors. I saw something similiar to this on a scor pal site and thought it may be a good way to use a scalloped circle! I just used my score pal to score the scalloped circle, and hand cut the stem and leaves. The center of the flower is an old button.
