  • Miss Kate Cuttables - sunflower in pot
  • Silhouette ID# 14239 (5 postage stamp shapes)
  • Foam squares to adhere sunflower center and to adhere entire image to tag
  • Craftin Desert Divas - Blooming for You stamp set (sentiment)
  • Timeless Twine - Olive Green

Tag Image Matting
  • I created an internal OFFSET with the Silhouette Software, then changed the solid line to a stitched one
  • The Cardstock cutting setting was changed to Silhouette Sketch pens
  • Removed the cutting blade and inserted a brown sketch pen

  • Almost the same process for the sunflower petals
  • I created an internal OFFSET with the Silhouette Software, then changed the solid line to a stitched one
  • Kept the cut setting so it would cut the stitch lines 

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm crafting. Make sure you pop over to PDE LINKY PARTY and link up your projects with STITCHING.

Fall - Craft It Up & Link It Up

Happy Monday!
Today starts a brand new 
Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party
hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!
Every other Monday will mark the beginning
of a new semi-weekly linky party
and you could win fabulous prizes!!

Here is my project...

Silhouette ID# 40402 - Set of 7 different label shapes

I created a shadow using the Offset feature on the Cameo.

Pattern papers from Doodlebug Designs - Happy Harvest

Buttons & Tulle from stash

I used my Print 'n Cut feature on the Cameo for the KaDoodle Bug Designs "Beary Cutest in the Patch" image. I created an Offset (shadow) so when it cut it out, it left a small white border. Then I adhered it with foam squares for dimension.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment:

The sentiment is from
Craftin Desert Divas
Simply Said

Simply MOOvelous

Hi, Crafters!
Hope your weekend is off to a great start.
My husband is painting in my craft room today,
so this card was made yesterday and scheduled to post.
Not sure if I'll get to make anything today,
but hope so. If not, I'll be back as soon as I get
my craft room back in order.

I love the new Just Pigcause and Simply Moovelous 
stamp sets by Craftin Desert Divas.

Today, I decided to show you a cow card.
