Humorous Sign

DH saw a door mat with a design similar to this on it.  We have some friends who are avid hunters and enjoy all types of firearms so he asked me if I could make a sign for them.  I'd been given some old plaques that had certificates on them so I removed the plexiglass and did my sign using cardstock and clip art images.

Once the sign was completed DH replaced the plexiglass to protect the cardstock.

It was laid out and cut in Make The Cut software.  I used Silhouette software to do a print and cut for the Sig Rainbow gun and the bullet hole images.  The fonts are Lobster 1.4 and Lucida Console.

Card Challenge

Shirley Thompson posted a card challenge for this weekend.  This is her file she created and posted a link on her blog, Okieladybug's Scrap 'N More

I really liked the honeycomb and bees and decided to see what I could design using her basic idea.  Here are two cards using puns.

If you're not familiar with the Minions from Pixar movies, one of the characters wears a hat with flashing red lights and runs around yelling "Bee-do, Bee-do!".

One of the sentiments I wanted to use was "Don't worry, be happy".  So I used a doughnut and a bee!

Stamped and Punched Bookmarks

Owl Bookmark
 Stampin' Up Owl Builder punch and scalloped circle punches were used on this bookmark.

Diamond Bookmark
 The facets on the diamond and the base for the wording were cut from silver metallic paper.

Brown Flowers
I've set up several files in Make The Cut for bookmark bases to provide just a little variety of shapes.

This one uses some Stampin' Up flower stamps and a background stamp.

Purple Bookmark

The bookmark is a shape from Fancy Frames cartridge.  It took me a while to locate a suitable sized calendar to print.  It's one found online and resized to only 2" wide.  The flowers are some that were sent to me from a message board friend several years ago.  The centers are yellow Stickles.

These will go to the local library on my next visit for the librarians to share with patrons.

Arrow Bookmarks

The font used is Stencila A.  It was super simple to weld the triangle and rectangle at the right size for these using Make The Cut software.

 Made some more bookmarks to donate to the library.
  Our school mascot is a Chieftain.
How about a slithery snake?

 Or a super easy to make snowman?

Story Hour Bookmarks

The local library hosts a story hour each Wednesday for children.  A volunteer reads stories to them and encourages them to read on their own.  Today's project was making bookmarks for the library to hand out to patrons.  I made quite a few for the adults to pick up as they check out books and volunteered to make some geared toward children to be handed out at their Halloween party.

The Jack 'O Lanterns and candy corn are images I traced and cut with my Cameo.  I made the quarter moons with a 1" circle punch and punched the stars.
