Fabulous florals birthday

This is a birthday card I made for a co-worker.  It is such a simple card.  I used Fabulous Florals SU as the stamp, I stamped the image in wild wabasi,  I then attached a flower that I found at the dollar store last night (in came in 5 different colors and I bought them all).  the oval was cut from CTMH, and I cut the decorative overlay and attached it.  The ribbon is from Michaels, and the sentiment is from SU Itty Bitty Banners and stamped with Perfect Plum.  I ran the background paper through the cuttlebug and used my corner chomper on the corners.

Crop and Create -- Cornwall 2014

3 months till the Crop and Create Cornwall event.  I can hardly wait.  I was looking at pictures from last year's even and realized I didn't post any pictures from it.  So here they are.

Boat Vinyl,

In an earlier post I showed a cut that I did for my brother's boat. I made two of that cut as well as a couple of spiders for him to put on the boat. On Saturday morning I went and placed these on his boat for him. Here is the finished project. 
I used cricut vinyl for the JO-JO inside the boat, for the outside I went to Deserres and purchased vinyl there, I wanted to make sure that it was outdoor vinyl.  I'm so glad I did, you buy the vinyl from a roll, I purchased 3 feet for $2.99, it is 18x36.  That's the best deal I've seen in Canada.  They have quite a few colors to choose from as well.

Fabulous work of art

My father was a teacher at RCI in Renfrew, he was head of the Art department.  I made him this card for fathers day. 
Ink for this card was Stampin Up, Purely Pom.,Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, and Summer Starfruit,  I also used My Pink stamper Texas Chocolate.  I cut the brush and pallet from Locker Talk with my cricut.  I used the blackout feature and cut this out twice at 2.5 inches, I used the layer key and cut it out once with yellow cardstock and once with white.  I used sponge dobbers on the white to match the shades of the ink.
I was inspired by a similar card on Pinterest, which can be found on my card board.  It was done with punches instead of the cricut.

Congratulations Ana,
This is a card I made for my son's girlfriend's graduation which is taking place today.  I am not able to get off work as we are short staffed so I wanted to make her a card to let her know I was thinking of her today.  Inspiration for this card came from Pinterest and pinner -- Up State Stamper.  While she used Stampin Up products I used CTMH, You Did It stampset.  The ink I used was My Pink Stampers, Darkest Night, and Stampin Up's Primrose Petals.  The University's colors are red and black, so I added some red just to give a bit more color to the card.  Ribbon from the dollar store, brads are from Michaels.
