You Are My Sunshine Card

I was searching through the Silhouette Library looking for a good file to make a card with. When I found the “You are my Sunshine” sentiment I just knew I had to use it.

Using the feature in Silhouette Studio that creates an outline of the letters made it so much easier to get the letters straight. All I had to do was adhere them to the outline and then adhere the outlines to the card. This large sentiment is the main focus of the card so just a few embellishments were needed.

Here’s a clickable list of supplies I used:

Silhouette Cameo 2
Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastel
(for blue background)
Luster Mica Powder in a Spray Bottle (for background)
Tim Holtz Stamp from Psychedelic Grunge (sun rays)
Versamark Ink
Gold Embossing Powder
Sequins (from the $1 store!) You can also get some lovely sequins here. 
Rhinestones
Glitter Paper
ATG Tape Adhesive Gun
Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen (used on sentiment)
Multi Medium Matte (to adhere the sequins)

Here’s a close up where you can kind of see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen. It’s a lot more sparkly in person.

This card came together quickly and easily. I can’t want to see what I can make next with my Silhouette Cameo 2!

Sunset Cemetery Halloween Card

I’ll have to be quick about this post but I want to cover some basics . The sunset idea was taken from Kristina Werner . She did it darker than this but the idea entirely came from watching her recent video. I originally did want to have a haunted house in the background and to have a fore and mid ground. However my brain has issues putting distances on a piece of paper so I scratched that plan. The On the Edge die that I used for the fence is called “iron gate” . The stamps are various studio g, fiskars, and inkadinkado stamps from this year and the past year. I used Spectrum Noire markers for some simple coloring. The labels die cuts are from a Spellbinders set. The far right headstone was made using ECAL and cut on my eClips . It was very easy to make, but if you’d like the svg file I’d be glad to send it. I’m not going to get into details but if you need to know the colors I used, what stamp is which company and etcetera , just ask me and I’ll be happy to tell you .
