Mom's Day card

It's my design day over at SVG Cutting Files
I am sharing a new card base being released this week. It's called the New Bracket Card.

I did a mash up of svg files and stamps in my stash to add a little extra something to the pretty flowers and leaves I cut from the Potted Flowers svg file.

Any stamps in your stash will do. It could be just a couple dots like mine, swirls or anything to enhance your pretty svg die cuts.

The title was made by die cutting the word "Happy" 5 times and then stacking ans gluing them altogether. This strick works nicely for thin lettering vs trying to cut tiny pieces of foam tape.
Have a crafty day!

New water color techniques.

I've been playing with some new stamps and trying some new techniques. One of those is using a water brush with my Tim Holtz inks to color in stamped images. I've watched many YouTube videos and have read several blogs so I thank all of you for the inspiration and tutorials. 

Here is what I ended up with after several tries. I still have to practice a bunch.

I made a treat topper for my bunny chocolates using some March and February cut club files. 

For the base of the topper I used the Scallop section from the card Sketch 46. I also used the flag portion turned on its side for a tag for my sentiment. 
The Simple Bunny Head is from the February bundle and works nicely for my Easter treat.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I know, it s a few days early, but its never too early to send a little luck someones way with a green card. 


I used a card layout from SVG Cutting Files Cut Club. 
You can find it here. Its one my my favorites and a go to now for a quick card.
I used some water color paper and my color burst inks for the background mixing the green with yellow. It's like magic, just spray with water and watch the colorful background come to life.

I added the Leprechaun from the Wee Bit Irish cut file set from SVG Cutting files to the front along with the sentiment from My Creative Time. 

Wishing you all crafty and lucky days.

For my project I have a little treat package filled with lucky chocolates. 

This little treat is quick and easy. I added a piece of card stock inside a treat bag. I then wrapped the chocolates with some fun paper using the JB candy wrap dies and stamped some St. Patrick's day images from the JB Lucky Treats stamp set on the top. 

Next I did a tag using the JB Treat Tag die.
The main attraction is this super cute Leprechaun from SVG Cutting Files.
I added a shamrock for good luck using the JB St. Patrick's Day Die Set
I tied the treat bag up with a bow and it's ready to bring some luck to someone special.

Go Green

Happy Friday!

We're going green over at the SVG Cutting Files store this week.
New files in the store this week are all about St. Patrick's Day.

My treat holder today showcases the Puppy Shamrock balloons file.

My base is one of my all time favorite files, the tube holder. 
I adhered my paper pieced puppy to the front and added a mini tag tied around the tube.

The tag and sentiment are from My Creative time.

Not a Cut Club Member? Find out how to become a member here.

For my card today I dressed up this cute little gal in her Mardi Gras attire ready to celebrate, beads and all. 

I started with a card base file. Next I selected a cute girl file which I modified slightly. 
Then I sized the hat and mask to fit the little girl. These files can be used to accent scrapbook layouts or like I did,  used them to enhance a fun greeting card.

Valentine Treats

Hope everyone is enjoying a nice weekend. I know my friends out east might still be digging out from all the snow the last 72 hours. 
Here in MN we have sunny blue skies and the snow is melting quickly. 

Jaded Blossom has a Valentine Treat challenge going on til Feb 14th so I did up a couple treat bags. 

The first one on the left is a box in a bag that I made using the SVG file from SVG Cutting Files.
I modified the height of the bag itself so it would fit my little gift item inside.
I decorated it with lost of JB dies and stamps listed at the bottom of this post. 

The second little treat bag is just a cello bag filled with candies. It's hard to tell from this picture but these little bags are just 2" wide and 5" tall. I had them in my drawer and frankly can't remember where I got them. You can find a larger version on the JB website.

I made the topper using dies and stamps from JB along with a cupid cut file from SVG Cutting Files. Sorry, it was a freebie a couple years ago and no longer available.

Here's the list of Goodies I used on my treats today....

SVG Cutting Files box in a bag
SVG Cutting Files World Traveler cut file

Have a drafty day!

Bug Hugs

Happy Friday!
I have a cute Valentines card to share today.
Things are going buggy in the SVG Cutting Files store today.

They just released some super cute bugs for Valentine's Day. I am using the Love Bug Dragon Fly.


I used some cute Doodlebug papers for the base of my card. Love it when I finally decided on just the right papers. Do you all have this same problem, picking out paper. It takes me longer to pick paper than it does to make the card.

Remember, check out all the new love bugs in the store today!
