Sunflower cards from Simply Crafty SVG's

Hello everyone!  It's the first Monday of the month and my turn to showcase another amazing svg file from Simply Crafty SVG's.  Now I don't know about you personally, but for me nothing says summer more than sunflowers and gerbera daisies.  I just love them.  So I have picked out Sunflower Card SVG File for this month.  This file would also be wonderful for Mothers Day this weekend.

Rather than just write about how I did these, I took a lot of pics.  So you have been warned.

Lets get started!

There are two types of cards available in the SVG file.  So I am making both.

A little trick...I use wrapping paper that I got for holidays that is
double sided.  I got a wonderful buy at Costco.  Here is one side.

This shows the opposite side of the paper.

I have a Silver bullet Pro 24" cutting machine.  Don't know what I would do
without it.  I have used a force of 25 and a speed of 300.   I hope you can see
the flowers I have cut for the sunflower design.

Weeded like butter!

Now I have one that is gold and one that is holographic.  Love this paper.

Sunflower pieces cut out.

Gerbera Daisy card cut out.

The other shiny and holographic papers are from Dollar Tree.  Just
amazing what you find there.

Gerbera Daisy ready to be assembled.

Love these!

Completely finished
Now for the beauty shot!

I hope you have gotten a few new ideas with my post!  If you have any questions, just holler!  Simply Crafty SVG's has a surprise later in the month.  So make sure you check back or like my Facebook page, Have Colors, Be Happy!  Hope to see some new faces!

For now, Bright Blessings, Jana

New project with Simply Crafty SVG'S

Hello everyone!  I am very honored to be able to show off what my project is this month.  I thought I would do a photo essay.  Here we go!

I used a heavy weight 12x12 enbossed brown for the base.

Sandy suggested something stiff.  I used a file folder.

Worked like a dream.

Leaves are also stiff paper.  Bazill maybe?

I had a bright idea.  How about watercolor paper for the flowers.
It's very stiff and my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
would be beautiful.

I should have thought of this idea many moons ago.

Time to start putting this together.

Love the color scheme of the paper.

The back.

I inked the edges for the top of the pot.

Starting the flowers.

I wanted the Orchids to really stand out.  Bright pink fits the bill.

The flower buds.

Flowers are cut.

Here is the finished product.  

Side view.

The back panel.

The beauty shot!

So this is my project for this month.  Here is the link to the Orchid Box Card.  Sandy has wonderful directions that are clear and concise.  The SVG'S cut like butter.  I sure hope you can come on over to  Leave some love and find a project you love.  I will see you the first Monday in May!  
Bright Blessings, Jana

CHDD Challenge #13

Hello everyone.  Happy Easter.  I hope you day is filled with blessings.

I have a bon voyage card to share with you this challenge.  I has used a new design by Mary Smith.  This is called Vintage Butterfly Air Mail Digital Image.  I hope that you like what I did with it. But first lets list the colors used for this project.

 Prismacolor Pencils:
                                PC935, 1006, 1017, 1003, 924, 913, 1079, 956, 
                                1036, 1094, 105, 929
                                 Pack Your Bags 12 x 12 by Little Yellow Bicycle
                                 Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk serie
                                  Loctite Spray Adhesive
                                  Tonic Extreme point scissors
                                  Rotary cutter and matt
                                  Von Bovage Mirror embellishment
                                   The kitchen sink and other stuff I never
                                   remember and never write down.

Here is what I came up with.  Remember friends our blog challenges are always ATG, with an added element if you would like to use it.  This time it's add lace.

Tell me what you think...

The front

The inside
The back.  If you look closely, the travel theme is
carried throughout the card.

That is it for the month of April.  May 1st will be coming really fast.  May your days be filled with wonder and blessings.  Take care,
