We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 2 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Cynthia at Ink-a-Doodle Creations. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.



Even though it's more than a week away, I have started working frantically on cards for Father's Day.  This is definitely one of my favorites.  I created the card with Stampin' Up! cardstock, my Silhouette Cameo, and a Fishing Vest download from Snapdragon Snippets.  I really like their downloads because they provide such great instructions on their website.




I decided to do faux stitching on the vest and found that the Project Life journaling pens were perfect for the job.  Most of the edges of the vest and pockets were sponged with Soft Suede ink to make them stand out.



Do you hoard scraps of paper?  Me, too!

Those scraps come in very handy in a project like this one.

This is a screenshot of the Silhouette Designer Edition software.  You can see that I have grouped the individual elements from the card in different areas on the mat.  With the grid lines on, I can tell exactly where to place my paper scraps.




This is a picture of my Cameo preparing to cut the multiple small pieces from the card.  I'm able to use up a lot of scraps this way and minimize my cutting time.

The colors used on this card are:  Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Real Red, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Lost Lagoon, Night of Navy, and Whisper White.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
