SSS221 Dragonfly Birthday card

 The Sweet Stop sketch this week is so easy to follow. I used some pretty My Minds Eye single sheets. 
 I cut this dragonfly on my Cameo using a SIL files. I sprayed it with Glitter Blast. It sprayed a bit more than I would have liked but oh well.
The sentiments are from a small TTC Studio birthday stamp set.

Today on Inspired Stamps Blog we are making a set of Christmas cards. I made a set of cards using bread tags cut from the SIL store with my Cameo. I used my Xyron Creative Station to adhere the bread tags onto the background. The scalloped circles where cut from a Miss Kate Cuttables file. I made each card differently using the same materials. I used the same ribbon, paper, and image. I love how these came out.
These first two cards I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from Perfect Christmas Sentiments
The bottom card I used the sentiment that comes with HLO Christmas Girl. I added the bling at the top with my Irock. I used brads on the others.
 I used HLO Christmas Girl for all the cards. I colored her with Copics. I added Stickles to the red in the green leaves.

Glitter Blog Hop

Welcome to the Glitter Blog Hop hosted by Lorby's World. These talented crafters believe a little or a lot of glitter can make any project sparkle and today they are going to prove it with their creations. Please visit each participant and leave a little bit of love on their blogs.

Jearise from Lorby's World has a special drawing to go along with today's hop. One lucky winner will win a $10 gift card from Micheal's. Just leave a comment on her blog so we know you joined us today. The winner will be announced on Sunday, July 28th so make sure you visit that day to see if you are the lucky winner.

I made a few Glitter HTV shirts. I am very new to heat transfer vinyl. This was my first day using it. I love it and dont want to use non glitter vinyl anymore :)
 I used a label from Miss Kate Cuttables and added the word faith inside. I used a butterfly from SIL studio.
  It was a PAIN to weed out all those small pieces but I LOVE this butterfly.
And because I could not waste any of this great HTVI used the letters of the faith on this next shirt.
 I used a different butterfly from SIL Studio that had swirls in it.
 And because I didn't want to waste a single piece of HTV, I used the swirls on the next shirt.
 Hard to see the swirls but they are cute.

Thank you for stopping by today and your next stop is Mayra.

Butterflies & Sunshine Card

I have a thing for butterflies. They are pretty and they make so many crafty things that are butterflies. I made another simple card today.
The sentiment is Jaded Blossom Perfect Sentiments 2. The butterfly is a chipboard that is sprayed with Sparkle & Spray. It is glittery and shiny without glitter coming off. This is important so I can send it to OWH to donate.

Another fun sketch over at The Sweet Stop this week. This one took me a little while to figure out. The doilies I have were to big for a card so I cut some with my Cameo using a Miss Kate Cuttables file.
I used a couple tan doilies and a couple white ones. I used a border punch and some fun gold threaded twine.
I used a Sweet N Sassy image and sentiment. The image is a digital stamp called Butterfly & Flower but also comes in a clear stamp. The sentiment is from the clear stamp set Wedding Cake. I colored the images with Copics, added Stickles to the center and Glossy Accents on the entire butterfly.

Head on over to The Sweet Stop and check out the others and join in on the fun!
