Silhouette cover plates! Yarned shapes

One of my favourite things to do with the Silhouette is to cut out a 'cover plate' and layer things around it.  This cut design is from a Studio calico class (pop off the page 2).

It's very tactile, and best of all, flat for mailing!

It reminds me of those games where you have to count the number of triangles in a given picture.  I tried my hand at 'drawing' with a mist nozzle under the sentiment.

Supplies; Stamps - Fillable frames (PTI), Paper - PP (SC), Orange (SU), white, Other - Silhouette, mist, silk ribbon, red embroidery thread.

Elena's baby

I have always loved Elena's masking/stamping abilities.  Here's a card I CASEd from her;  let me tell you, it took awhile to get the masks just right!

Supplies; Stamps -  Bundle of love (PTI), Envelope pattern (HA), Stella & Rose (MME), Paper - Aqua mist, cream, Hawaiian shores, Other - copics. 


Now this is going to sound absurd, but bear with me.  I have wanted to try an embellishment heavy/gender neutral/lots going on/messy/misted/Studio calico type card.  I love the look of them, they are very different from my usual style, and sort of artsy.  ...and sort of ugly!  I don't know how it's possible to love something and think it's ugly at the same time, but there you go.  Isn't it funny what we are drawn to sometimes?

Supplies; Stamps - POP2 class set (SC), Paper - SC 3 x 4 PP, white, Aqua mist, Other - wood veneer sentiment, mist (passport MH), vellum speechbubble, kraft tape (BG).
