My Craft Spot Challenge # 110 Get Well - Sympathy

It's time for a new weekly challenge over at My Craft Spot, and the challenge this week is Get Well or Sympathy.   I just love this sentiment and knew I wanted to use it.   So I asked Annie over at SVG Cutting Files to make me a cute skunk, how cute is he?!  I love that he has his hands up like he is covering his nose!  You can get the cut file for the skunk at SVG Cutting Files.  

The sentiment is from the Cute Critters stamp set from My Craft Spot.

Have a Fabulous Birthday!

For the Hello Kitty Blog Hop go here.

I have been making a lot of birthday cards lately, because you can never have enough it seems.  I like how this card turned out, sometimes it just all works! 

This is an A2 size card, the paper is from Pebbles 6x6 pad called Seen and Noted.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set and the flourish behind it is from the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set both from My Craft Spot.  The doily is the 4"Doily Metal Die from My Craft Spot, I just trimmed the outer part of it off to make it smaller.  The string is Black Jute String also from My Craft Spot.

Happy Birthday Card!

I saw a card like this in the Silhouette store, and thought I can make that with my Tiny Banners & Toppers Dies from My Craft Spot, so I did!

The flags were cut out with the Tiny Banners & Toppers Dies and then I punched holes in them for the Cherry Red twine to go through also from My Craft Spot. They are on one thickness of foam tape.   The letters were cut out wit the Small alphabet Metal Dies from My Craft Spot, and then covered with glossy accents.  
The sentiments are stamped from the Birthday Wishes stamp set from My Craft Spot.

SVG Cutting Files Monthly Challenge!

I can't believe a month has already gone by since the last challenge!  Time is going way to fast!!  So it is time for a new monthly challenge over at SVG Cutting Files, and the challenge this month is 
Anything but a Card!
So fun and easy, right?

So with it being back to school time I went with that theme and made two book boxes and the pencil box both cut files from SVG Cutting Files.  Very easy and quick to do, I will give one hint of advice to make putting the pencil together a lot easier is to use a very light weight paper for the wood part of the pencil tip.  It just makes it curve easier.

High Heel Shoe

My daughter loves polka dots and high heel shoes, so I made this for her.  This is a file from SVG Cuts, it was a little tricky to put together, but not terrible.

My Craft Spot Color Challenge!

Time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot.  This week's challenge is a color challenge, I don't know why but this one was hard for me to do!  Sometimes they just come together and sometimes it's such a struggle.  Anyway this is what I came up with.

It is an A2 size card I trimmed about 3/8" off one side and then punched it with this MS border punch, the butterflies were cutout with my cameo, get this the small ones are just under 1/2" and the big one is 3/4" cut perfectly!

I stamped the thinking of you in white craft ink and embossing powder, both sentiments are from the Inside & Out - Stamp Set #2 from My Craft Spot.  The butterflies are from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set also from My Craft Spot.

Here is the Color combo for the challenge, good luck and have fun!

School Bus Treat box

So a lot of places the kids are already back in school, which seems crazy to me!  My grandkids in Indiana started back the first of August.  So in the back to school theme I  made this little bus treat box, it is from the Silhouette store.  I cut it at the size it came onto the mat, it is small but that's okay.

The tag was made with the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies and stamped with the Stampin Around Fall stamp set both from My Craft Spot.  I tied it on with Maraschino Twine also from My Craft Spot.

New Baby Card

I guess with the two new grandsons I had baby boys on my mind!  This is a 5 x 5 card from the Silhouette store.  I did have to use a new mat and blade to get it to cut those tiny spots, but it did it.  The paper is all American Crafts.

The inside stamp is from the Bundle of Joy stamp set from My Craft Spot.

Tea Cup and Saucer

 This is a new file that will be released this friday at SVG Cutting Files, isn't it so cute and dainty!  It is perfect to put little treats in, I just didn't have any!  Didn't want to buy any either because if I have them I eat them!!

The pretty ribbon is Hot Pink Crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot.  The twine is American Crafts and the little metal charm is so old, I bought it years ago on QVC.  The paper is Crate Paper.

Adirondack Chair and Umbrella

This is a new file from SVG Cutting Files that will be released this friday.  I love it!!  I lived in Vermont for 17 years and these chairs are everywhere, it makes me a little home sick!  I made the umbrella a little more summery than you would see in Vermont, but I like it bright.

You don't have to add the extra pieces to the umbrella, it is an option.
