Cut It Up Challenge #76 - Numbers

Hi Crafty Friends,

Cut it Up Challenge #76 is open.  Along with a DIE CUT, we want to see a NUMBER somewhere on your project.
Here's my card:


For this Birthday Bingo card I stamped the frame and numbers from Jaded Blossom's Bingo stamp set.  The sentiment and birthday icons are from JB's Birthday Bingo stamp set.  I used JB's Card Mat Dies for the patterned paper mat and the Frame and Journal Dies for the bingo mat and arrow.  The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants Designs.

I hope you'll join in the Cut It Up Challenge HERE

Clear It Out Challenge #87

Hi Crafty Friends

Our Clear it Out challenge this week is to use a summer theme and include ribbon as your stash item.

I'm using the Owl Trio from this week's sponsor SLS Lines.


Since the owls were rather quirky I decided to color them with unconventional colors using my Copic markers.  The sun is from Jaded Blossmom's Spring Dies 2 set.  The branch was created by using the sand die from JB's tropical die set and cutting twice.  The leaves are from JB's Spring Die set.  All of the papers and ribbon are from my stash as are the stamps from KAndrew Designs.

Head on over to Clear it Out to see more summer/ribbon creations and to enter our challenge for a chance to win 3 image from our sponsor:

WORD!

It's time for another Cut It Challenge.  Challenge #75 is WORD!  Along with a die cut, we were asked to "feature" a word or sentiment on the project.

In Memory of Jack

Hi Crafty Friends,

I wanted to share a shadow box project I made for my husband.  
Jack was that ONE dog that every dog lover and hunter dreams about owning.  He was kind, gentle, devoted, and a hunting fool.  Hubby raised and trained him from 7 weeks and he was part of our family for 13 1/2 years.  We will miss him beyond words.


I designed this and cut it on my Silhouette.  I recently updated to Version 3 and it cut like a dream using the default vinyl settings.  I found the images on Google, imported them into Studio and then traced.  I also used the two images at Christmas to make floating ornaments.  I was pleased with how easily the font cut, even the commas and dash.   The background paper is from a hunting set that I ordered online.
