Monogram Background Cut

This design is my sample for The Paper Cabana Challenge #4:  Backgrounds.  This was designed to go on a glass block which unfortunately did not arrive in time for the challenge, so plan B was this card.  I used part of the Curve Screen  background by Jennifer Wambach and then welded it to a frame.  I then made the circle frame and welded the letter M inside the frame.  I made an offset of the circle frame to cut out the center of the background and then welded the monogram to the background.  I can’t wait for my glass blocks to get here so I can finish my real project!

Spooky Tree with Googlie Eyes

Googly-eyed Spooky Tree

My card today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Free for All Challenge F4A135…The eyes have it! The challenge is to use googly eyes on your card, with brownie points for using them on an inanimate object. I knew I wanted to use a spooky tree for my card, but could not find one that I liked. I searched the web for spooky tree coloring pages, and finally found an image that I liked and traced it in my Silhouette Studio software. I am also submitting this card to the Out of a Hat Creations Challenge: Halloween. This fun card is heading to my son for Halloween!

Today’s challenge at The Paper Cabana is an Inspiration Challenge: Bright Wishes Kanzashi Studio.  While browsing on Etsy one day, I ran across this little shop that carries the prettiest fabric hair clips.  I loved all the beautiful flowers, colors and fabrics used to make these handmade hair ornaments.  The hand-dyed silks are my favorite, the colors and shading are just exquisite.  I chose this Summer Goldfish Hair Clip as the inspiration for my card.  I just love the beautiful shading on the goldfish!

The Paper Cabana, A New Challenge Blog!

Standard

The Paper Cabana

Now that my daughter is heading back to school, I decided I needed something to do with myself!  Last year, I wasn’t really an empty nester because I was so busy taking care of my dad, who passed away the end of January.  But this year, my nest will truly be empty, just me, Stella and Lucy at home for 12 hours each day.  If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, you know how much I love a good challenge and my new Silhouette Cameo has reignited my love for electronic cutters.  So I have decided to combine these two loves and start a weekly challenge blog for electronic cutters!  The first challenge will begin on Wednesday, September 5th at 9:00am.  You can do a card, a layout or any other project, as long as it has at least one SVG cut.  The prize for the first challenge is a $10 Download Card for the Silhouette Online Store!  I am also looking for a few guest designers for the first challenge, if anyone is interested, please email me at thepapercabana@gmail.com.

Torn Paper Challenge

Lynn is up this week with a challenge for the Card-a-Day Blog Group, Torn Paper.  First, I have to tell you how much I LOVE this group!  They are such a talented group of women and so encouraging and supportive, I feel so fortunate to be a part of this group!  And now for my challenge card:

Torn Paper Beach

I used Very Vanilla cardstock for the sand.  I tore the strips, sponged with Creamy Caramel and layered on the aqua card base.  I added the AMuse Clouds cardstock (thanks Kay!) for the sky.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the beach umbrella from Summer Set by Jamie Koay in Basic Black and Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Parade Real Red Designer Series Paper.

You Color My World

Today I have a quick card for the Ways to Use It Challenge WT388 School Tools on Splitcoaststampers.  When I was a kid, back to school was one of my favorite times of the year because I got new art supplies!  I always got a new box of 64 crayons, new watercolors, new markers, construction paper, paste, glue, felt and pipe cleaners.  I was an only child and spent many hours with my art supplies, so getting new stuff was a treat!  When I saw the challenge to make a card using school tools, I immediately thought of art supplies.  I designed my watercolor paint box for my Silhouette Cameo, but you could do the same thing with punches.

I haven’t had much time for crafting the past few weeks, but I had a couple of challenges I wanted to enter, so I made some time today to finish this card.  I designed the cut file for the beach cabanas and cut them in Peach Parfait, Green Galore and Calypso Coral.  I used a post-it note to mask the clapboards and sponged with Creamy Caramel.  I used Stampin’ Up Naturals Ivory Cardstock for the base and this fun Amuse Cloud cardstock for the sky.  I think this card is really cute, I love these colors!

Fabric Inspiration Color Challenge

I chose Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla for my colors and created this beach inspired card.  This card is one of four designs that I am doing for a gift set.  I used the Branches cut file, which I manipulated to make the frame and cut the tag off of the sand dollar from the Ocean Charms cut file.
