CFC56 Hello Friend

I’ve been playing around with my Silhouette die cutting machine this week . . . I LOVE my Silhouette!!  I happened upon a super fun cutting file that I thought would be a PERFECT pairing with the darling DeNami Design images that I was given to work with.  I cut it out of some new Stampin’ Up Lucky Limeade CS.  I stamped (directly onto the card base) the Small Solid Circle and Polka Dot Circle in the openings of the die cut in three different colors, and adhered the die cut to the card base with foam tape, aligning the openings with the stamped images.  I used a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to place and stamp the sentiment.

PRODUCTS USED:

STAMPS:  Hello Friend, Small Solid Circle and Polka Dot Circle (DeNami Design)
INK:  Black (Memories/Hero Arts), Ginger and Pool (Fresh Ink), Fern (A Muse Studio)
PAPER:  Solar White CS (Neenah), Lucky Limeade (SU)
OTHER:  Circle Border Cutting File (Silhouette Studio), Silhouette SD (Silhouette America), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)

 

I’m sorry to challenge and run, friends – I’m in the middle of some super fun stuff for a publication call and need to be spending every single free minute that I have creating.  I should be back on track with sharing with you all after Monday.  In the meantime, know that I appreciate every single minute that you spend here at my little ol’ blog – it means the world to me!  Have a great weekend!
