Welcome! This month’s theme was to do a new technique… so I tried something new..
I had seen some cute fathers day stamps from Jaded Blossom http://jadedblossomstamps.com/ and wanted to order them…. so in looking at their stuff I found this cute remote from http://svgcuttingfiles.com/ for a remote control to cut with my Cameo.
I bought the stamp set & the cut shape & proceeded to do for fathers day.
Here’s the end result:
So this was a new technique for me – buying an SVG file and cutting it with my Cameo. Also making the candy wrappers was new…
It did take me a little bit to figure out how to get it to size right, and I did have some issues with my Cameo (realized I had too much paper jammed into the blade housing so I had to clean my blade to get it to work properly again).
I realize I need to get some better adhesive as they came un-stuck and had to re-stick them all. I also made all of the remote buttons with pop dots – so that was very time intensive – but I love how it turned out & my dad thought it was great…. so I say it’s a win (plus I ate most of the leftover candy :))
Happy Father’s Day dad! Thanks for being so great!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and this month we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3″x6″ cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and error…I tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6″x6″ cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6″x11″ with folds at 4″, 4″,1″,1″,1″ from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.
I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card.
Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father’s day card finished and need to create one more. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! 🙂
