St Louis Cardinals car decal and custom cup

Thank you for stopping by!!! I made this St Louis car decal with my cricut explore. It is thre layers of orcal 651 outdoor vinyl. I used the magic cover to layer each piece of vinyl and then rubbed all the layers on it and added the backing to give it.
I added a white circle of vinyl as the base of cardinals image so that you could see it better on the red cup. It is hard to see in this picture, but I put Rosalie in dark blue vinyl at the bottom of the cup. Pictures had to be taken in a hurry as she was leaving to go back to Missouri and I was in a rush to finish.
Thank you for stopping by!  Please subscribe, if you haven't. I will be posting a St Louis box card I made with video of it and more CTMH cards.

Remberence glass blocks

I am sorry for the blurriness of the photo. I was taken on a camera phone and looked completely clear on my email, but isn't on here. A friend of mine had friends and family that lost loved oncs all at the same time. I made her glass blocks that all say "Because someone we love I in Heaven, there's a little bit of Heaven in out home" and below each saying is the full name of the person that passed. Clue bows for the men and purple for the women. She is giving them as gifts to those grieving. I brought the ribbon at hobby lobby and used hobby lobby brand black vinyl. I do not recommend Hobby Lobby vinyl because the letters kept falling off and shifting from the backing after I weeded it.


I hope you can see the blocks to make out what they look like. I frosted each block on both sides before I added the vinyl..
Thank you for stopping by!!

CTMH cardinal Thank you card

Thank you for stopping by!!  Today I am showing some of my favorite things, card making, CTMH stamps, CTMH ink, and CTMH paper. I made this card to thank some one for their order from me. Anyone who places an order from me always receives a custom made card just for them!

This card started out as the cardinal image stamped on white daisy cardstock in Archival black. I then used the Shinhan markers to color in the bird and flowers. I cut the image out and ran the edge of the square on the ink pad and then I dabbed bamboo ink around the bird. I left some areas around the bird and flowers white to give a highlight effect. I cut out a bracket image with my cricut explore and my Artfully sent Cartridge and I used the left over cut out as a template to sponge Sorbet ink around the edges to form a sponged bracket. I popped the bird image up with foam circles to the middle of the bracket.  I cut a piece of chalk it up paper, ran the sorbet ink pad over the edges, and added the strip just above the bird. I used the sentiment stamps from the Artfully Sent collection to stamp "thank you so very much". I added 3 green epoxy bubbles to the strip of chalk it up paper. I finished the card by running my sorbet ink pad all around the card's edges.

Here's a list of CTMH supplies used:
Colonial white card and envelope set
Fabulous you stamp set
Shinhan Carmine alcohol marker
Shinhan Cherry Pink alcohol marker
Shinhan Tender Pink alcohol marker
Shinhan Marigold alcohol marker
Shinhan leaf green alcohol marker
Shinhan lavender alcohol marker
Shinhan Touch Twin colorless blender
Bamboo ink pad
Sorbet Ink pad
Chalk it up paper
Green epoxy bubbles
Archival Black ink
Artfully Sent Cricut collection

Thank you for stopping by!! January has a great deal on double hostess rewards when you send $350 this month. I would love our business and you will love the great products CTMH has to offer. I hope you enjoyed my card today. I just received the Sorbet ink and I think it will be used a lot. It is a beautiful coral color. I also received my CTMH rolling tote. It is a lot bigger than I imagined it. I am looking forward to having all my products organized and ready to be on the go. I am now waiting for the organizers that go in it to come. I plan sometime this year to do a video demonstrating the ease of the shin han markers. If you have any requests to see the products o have any questions, please let me know in the comments. If you are trying to figure out if a certain CTMH color is what you had in mind, contact me and I'll mail you a sample. I have samples of all the papers CTMH carries. Have a great day!

Damask Divas Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Mandy Leahy's photo.
If you came here from Michelle, your in the right place. I am so excited to in back in another Damask Diva hop! This hop is featuring our new seasonal papers. I just got mine in the mail and they are almost too pretty to cut up. I loved both ides of the Heartstrings paper and wanted my project to show off both sides. I decided on this cute card from the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. I added a CTMH enamel heart to the center cut out of the camera and a part on the zip strip towards the bottom. I made the little bow by pinching a little rectangle of the zip strip and folding the sides. The sides in the back gave a place to glue it to the zip strip. Here's the outside:

here's the inside:
I love how this card turned out! Thank you from coming by. Next on the hop is the talented Felicia

More Coffee cups

Hello, I have made quite a few coffee cups now and I wanted to share some more today. I hope you have a relaxing Sunday. Beverly loves Elvis. I googled Elvis svg and found this great image and cleaned it up as a basic upload in design space. I made a navy blue Starbucks logo for my uncle Steve.
The chevon was already on the cup, but I added Jeanne Ann to it. I cut the golfer from design space subscription and added it to the center of Phil's coffee logo. 

Starbuck coffee cups in favorite colors. I cut the sleeves but only the orange one turned out any good to give.
Here's another cup I made by my tree.
