I stayed up all night finishing these before leaving for our vacation. I personalized 10 tumblers and 8 beer mugs. But they turned out just as I had hoped. And the girls got to use their tumblers at the lake. The photos are not my best, but was taken just before handing them out! H & H vinyl cut like a dream. I mixed some Lettering Delights floral SVGs along with a floral font, Saru's Flower Ding and SCAL2 basic shape flower. There were too many floral patterns to choose from!
Zebra print started with Denise's from Paper Pastime then made a few changes. The reverse has the flip flops for my Sis in law who spends the summer in her flip flops ( she must own 20+) including zebra!

These didn't need much more that flower w initial but I liked the spiral added

The white daisy design really popped on the dark blue tumblers!

I put together a list of my favorite fonts to use for die cutting ( using SCAL2), or just to print and cut for sentiments. I hope I can post it in the font depicted. I am giving a letter sampling as well. A size 16 is not consistently the same size as you can see. Font names are underlined. You can google for these, they were all free ! I have probably close to 1000 fonts but these are my favs. Add your in comments please.

Quick and Easy Peasy card for a birthday girl of any age
I only had half an hour to devote to a couple of birthday cards. One for now one for later. I grabbed my old time favorite Storybook cartridge and used the birthday girl phrase. I placed this on top of the Accent Blackout cut. I used Design Studio to get proper sizing. I then grabbed my Marvy floral punch and EK Success leaf punch, my We R Memory Keepers Big Bite hole punch and ta da done. DCWV Summer and Citrus cardstock made this June Birthday card pop. The bit of green use on the leaf helped to "ground" it a bit. I couldn't decide if I liked the flowers centered or diagonal, so I made one of each. I use 5 flowers and curl or bend them for dimension.
Tip - It only takes a couple on minutes longer to make 2 cards while you have all the supplies out. When coming up with a new card layout one may be your practice card but plenty good enough to give !
Welcome to the RBC ! Red Bra Chics . This ain't no Red Hat Ladies Club! This is for the 50 year old gal with spunk. Started by yours truly prior to turning 50, but just not ready for the Red Hatters. I had to come up with something for myself and friends because 50 seems to be the new 40 for us. Red Bra Chics it is. Wear it, flaunt it, hide it, you are old enough to decide. So we present the new 50 year old with a red bra usually at a party.
So here is the card I made for the newest RBC, my friend Linda. This is a multi- opening card, with a front opening bra, the cleavage revealing the letters RBC. The girls Loved It !
|Gate Fold 4 x 6|
|Opens to Retro Bats One font lady|
|Fold up to discover Red Bra from Princess font embossed with Spellbinder Flowers|
