You Light Up My Life Tags

I'm cutting one more challenge close to the deadline. I wanted to join in the Peachy Keen Stamps linky party. I made some tags with one of the new sets.

I love this little light bug. Isn't it darling? It comes from the new A Little Light Camping. It is such a darling set and comes with the perfect sentiments too! I masked off part of the sentiment and just stamped 'let it shine.'

I think this flashlight is super cute too. It comes on this set too and so does the sentiment.

The tag die is by My Creative Time and is called Stitched Round Tab, Arrow and Tag Die. Here are both of the tags together.

I colored these real quick with my Spectrum Noir markers. I'm having fun experimenting with them a little here and there! I hope you have a terrific rest of your weekend. Hugs- Glora

HURRAY - Graduate

I made this card for my niece that graduated from college. She is an amazing girl and I'm so proud of her.

I used this cute girl graduate from a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons, Graduates Cutting Files svg set and since it is girly and for a girl I'm entering it into their current challenge too. I used the print feature of the Silhouette for my card and I stamped her face with a Peachy Keen face stamp from the Basic Paper Doll Faces stamp assortment. Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

Flower - Thank You

I'm joining in on the Peachy Keen Stamps Photo/Color Inspiration at the last minute. I used the colors and the flower theme as the inspiration for my thank you card.

Here is my card:

You may be wondering where the Peachy Keen Stamps are. Well they are the sentiment. The 'Thank' comes from Thank You - Big and the 'YOU' I stamped using letters from  Lucy's ABC's and 123's SOLIDS. The basic card design comes from a Lettering Delights set called Merry Month of May.

I hope you enjoyed. I have a few cards for challenges that will be posted the next couple of days :). Hugs- Glora

Bonjour! I have a simple little note card that I made and wanted to share. It will be perfect for one of my dear friends in France. I know she will LOVE it.

I used the current photo inspiration challenge at My Creative Time as my inspiration.

Here is what I made:

I used a handful of My Creative Time products for this. I used the Pretty Spring Wreaths for the flower wreath and colored it up with some Tim Holtz Distress Markers. A very sweet friend gave them to me quite a while ago. I have used them a few times but really need to learn how to master them. I've seen amazing things done with them. They are dual tipped and the small tip was perfect for coloring these tiny leaves and flowers. The sentiment comes from My Creative Time's Springtime in Paris. For dies I used the 4x4 Journal Die + More and the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die. The size of my card is 4.25" x 4.25" square.

I hope you enjoy my simple project for today. Have a great one! Hugs- Glora

Here's my project I created:

It is a s'more shape card that I created using a freebie file from SVG Cuts. I did modify it slightly so that it would have a graham cracker and a little ooie gooey chocolate on the top too. That darling face is by Peachy Keen Stamps. It is one of their larger face assortments called PK-1202 The Moodies 2 1/4" face assortment. And of course the cute and fun sentiment is from the new release by Craftin Desert Diva's called Destination Fun. Other than that I did lots of inking with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and some accent dots with my Gelly Roll pens. A touch of glossy accents for the eyes and I was done.

Here is a closeup of the sentiment. Pretty cute huh?

Thanks for Helping us Jump Into Reading

I just wanted to drop by and share a door I decorated for Teacher Appreciation week at our school. I decorated the reading recovery teacher's door. So I 'toad-ally' went with a reading theme.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.

The books and the frogs are both from files by Lettering Delights. The Frogs are from the Toad-ally School set and the books are from Love to Read and Spell. The words were all cut from true type fonts off my computer and cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.

Have a great weekend! Hugs- Glora

Happy Mother's Day Card

I have a card that I did for the cut challenge that Pam and I do. Pam chose the cut and it was a SVG freebie file by Bird's Cards. She has a bunch of cute freebies and this is one of them. It is called Tulip Digital Cutting File by Bird and it can be found in the flower and leaves section HERE.

At the time I started on this card I still needed a Mother's Day card for my mom so I thought this cut would work perfect for it. It is a long card that fits inside a business envelope. I think it was approximately 4" x 9"

I made my own oval and scalloped edge in my Silhouette Designer software. Then I cut everything out and inked all of the edges up. The Mother's Day stamp is by My Creative Time's stamp set called Mom, You Rock.

Make sure to check out Pam's blog to see what she did with this beautiful tulip cut. You can find Pam's blog HERE.

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

Good Teachers Teach From the Heart

Hi, I thought I would pop in and share a card that I made for my daughter's teacher. You may be seeing a few teacher appreciation items in the next few weeks. Our school decided to celebrate teacher appreciation week all next week. I'm trying to get a few projects done and ready to go in advance. I thought this cute sketch from Peachy Keen Stamps would work cute for a thank you card. Here is the sketch (the challenge runs through tonight if you want to join in).

For this card I used a bear and apple SVG from PPBN, I don't see it on her site anymore but it was a freebie that I got from there a long time ago. However, I did find it in the Silhouette Online Store HERE if you are interested in it.

The sentiment on the apple is from the My Teacher Rocks! stamp set by My Creative Time. The Thank You is from Sports Sentiments also by My Creative Time. I also used a couple of dies by My Creative Time. My rounded squares in the background are from the 4x4 Journal + More and the cute little heart dies are from the Stitched Sweethearts and XOXO Dies. And of course that absolutely ADORABLE face on the bear is a face stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps called the Teddy Bear Assortment. Isn't it the cutest little face?

I hope you enjoyed my card today. I have another card to share tomorrow too (SURPRISE). I'll see you then! Hugs- Glora

Tulips for Mother's Day

I made this card for my sweet Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

I used lots of My Creative Time products on this and all of the paper is from PaperTrey Ink. For my 3x4 shape card I used the following My Creative Time products: The Stitched Grass Die (grass), the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die (shape card), Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies (tulips and stems), the Stitched Sweetheart and XOXO Dies (hearts inside the flowers), and the Cartoon Cloud Background stamp.

I used the Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die for my gift card and the sentiment comes from the More Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.

This is the card with it's coordinating envelope. The Stitched 3x4 Journal die fits perfectly inside the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die. I added another Tulip and then some sentiments from the Mom, You Rock stamp set.

I'm entering this for the current challenge over at My Creative Time. The challenge is to make a project for Mother's Day with at least one flower on it.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora
