You Light Up My Life

I have finally used my Silhouette!  I love the endless possibilities that my Silhouette offers but I often feel overwhelmed and resort to just stamping.  For this card I incorporated both the Silhouette and stamping.  I used the Silhouette to cut out the super cute lightbulb and I opted to just type out my corny but cute sentiment on cardstock.  I thought the zig-zag embossing would be an "electric" effect and then continued with the chevron/zig-zag hearts.  I hope this card will "brighten" someones day!!!


Supplies Used:
Stamp: Hearts a Flutter (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Summer Starfruit (Stampin' Up!)
Extras: Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!), Zig-Zag Embossing Folder (Lifestyle Crafts)
Silhouette: Light Bulb

Challenges Entered:


  1. Oh this is adorable!love the sentiment and the bulb

  2. I love this lightbulb - and your card with it! I'm woefully unknowlegeable about the silhouette - but would love to puchase some of these cut lightbulbs from you. They would be perfect for artwork I make to "Light it Up Blue for Autism" - an autism awareness celebration. Please contact arsc651@yahoo.com if you can (legally and willingly) do that.

  3. I would love to purchase some of these lightbulb cutouts to use in artwork I create for "Light It Up Blue for Autism" - an autism awareness celebration. Please contact me at corr.amy@gmail.com with your asking price if you can (willingly and legally)sell 20 or so of these. Nice card, too! Thanks, Amy
