Hi ya'll! Can you believe next week February will be here? It's just amazing how quickly time flies when you are older.
Tonight I read a blog, called "Monica's Creative Madness" and she introduced a challenge that is called "Cameo Creations Challenge." Monica did say it's open to ALL Silhouette machines, not JUST the Cameo. I saw this really cute card style that was brand new to me. It's a "Twisted Easel" card. I've worked on a regular easel card, but this sounded intriguing. I watched her video and saw how EASY it was. Stopped it a couple times so I could write down the measurements. Take a look at her video to see how the Twisted easel card is made. Easy Peasy lemon squeezy, I tell you!
By the time I was finished reading her post, it was almost 11pm! It's now...going on
2am 2:30am and I wanted to finish MY entry because it was so fresh in my mind.
Here is my card:
|Twisted Easel Card|
The design on the front is called "Hanging Hearts" and it's available in the Silhouette Studio online store. Hero Arts created this pretty design. I cut out some extra hearts from the image--which is ONE of the many reasons why I love my Silhouette! I was able to use the knife tool to 'slice' away the hearts and just print THOSE without the hanging part or the swirling flourish!
I added some Stickles around the hearts on the front--BABY BLUE color, and then I used DIAMOND Stickles for the hanging part. I added a couple dots of the CANDY CANE Stickles to the end of each swirl.
Inside the card, I used pop-up foam for most of the extra hearts I cut out with Sadie. The stamp is from Close to my Heart set, "Mad About You" which was only available in December, 2011 as the Stamp set of the Month.
If you are interested in seeing the current Stamp Set of the month, just head over to my CLOSE TO MY HEART website.

OH, one more thing...there's an offer for a brand new item coming out with the new Spring/Summer 2012 Idea book you can get for a VERY good price.
It's called "Rock the Block"
and it's a set of 9 (nine) 2 inch Collage Cubes, along with an Exclusive "E" sized (think full sheet sized set of stamps!!!!) for only $15 with a qualifying $25 order. This offer ends January 31, 2012, so hurry while you can! The block set retails for $14.95 in the new Idea Book, so it's as if you are getting the E sized stamp set for FREE!
