Too many crafting toys.....too little time to play :( Welcome to my blog diary! I started out with a baby bug (original Cricut), upgraded to other Cricuts, then playing with the Silhouette Cameo mostly nowadays. I also started dabbing into digi stamping and digital scrapbooking. Thanks for stopping by!

The same but different flip swing cards
Wow it's been a while since I posted! The kids have summer vacation which means less time for me to craft :( Anyway, part of this post can also be viewed over at the Scrapper's Delights Papercrafts Blog. Thanks Janice for letting me post in your blog today. For this project, I made 4 A2 size cards. The base of the cards is a flip swing card image by Lori Whitlock I purchased through the Silhouette Store, cut with the Cameo. I chose to play with the Tears of a Clown digi set 2 which came out I believe in May. I also incorporated some of the digi kit elements from the Scrapper's Delights' Forever Blowing Bubbles digi scrapbook kit. I imported the digi stamps onto the Silhouette Studio to size them according to how big the coordinating scalloped circles were going to be. I colored the clown digis with Prismacolor pencils.
Below are some images after they have been cut in the Cameo (I'm using a 12 x 12 Cricut matt because you can with the Cameo).
And here are closeups of the cards.
the flowers on a string is from SD's Forever Blowing Bubbles
digi kit; I used the Curlz MT font for the sentiment on the
front and on the inside of the card; I embellished with Card Candis
and Prima flowers
for this card I embellished with a wavy ribbon and buttons
from my stash. I used the Abbeyline, Arial and Chopin Scripts
for the sentiments. The flower on the inside sentiment is from the
SD's Forever Blowing Bubbles kit
The heart ribbon image is again from the same SD digital
kit. I used the Abbeyline font for the sentiments, and embellished
with Card Candis and brown ribbon
the sentiment in the front came from the Tears of a Clown
digi set; I used the Curlz MT font for the sentiment inside the card,
then embellished with a ribbon, a homemade stick pin, and some
Hope you like my project for today. Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are having a wonderful summer.
