Surprise everybody!!! I am guest designer for today on Miss Kate Cuttables. I was so happy when I discovered her site a few years back. I check back everyday to see what the new Freebie file is and I use her cuts a lot in my cards. When I found out that I was being offered a guest spot on her site, I was SUPER excited. I love doing all kinds of crafts and especially cardmaking. I make a lot of Birthday and Christmas cards every year. For today, I decided to showcase some Christmas cards I made using these 2 files from Miss Kate Cuttables. (Santa Paws and Frosty Fun).

For the first card I used the files which can be found here (http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/santa-paws-cat.php#).

I cut out the images using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space. Then used my Xyron to assemble the pieces easier. After assembling the items, I used Clear Wink of Stella on “Santa”, the holly and the bow. On the leaves, I used Wink of Stella – Green 040.

For the face on the cat, I used Peachy Keen Stamps – PK110 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment. Used StazOn – Jet Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Brightened up the eyes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Adding a touch of pink, green and red markers to accentuate the eyes and mouth.

Patterned paper is from Bo Bunny –  Silver and Gold Collection Paper – 6 x 6 in pad.

Square stitched backgrounds is cut out using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Went around paper background edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.

Faery Ink Birthday Card


Hi There,

Sharing a birthday card that I made using the fairy for this month’s challenge over at Faery Ink using Fairy2 image.

FaeryInkBDCard

Here is a close up:

FaeryInkBDCard-CU

 

I printed the image and coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir markers. Details of colouring image are below.

Then I fussy cut out the image.

I wanted her to look like she was floating in water and mystical, so I used watercolour paper and Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Turquoise and Ultramarine Blue. As the paper was drying I sprinkled some Sea salt onto the paper and just love the effect that it created. I also used my hot gun to dry the paper a little faster.

Positioned circle die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the portion of the background that I wanted.

Next I cut out the dark blue background using AC Specialty Paper 5 x 7 foil with die cut from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

Used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the larger circle and then embossed the circle with We R Memory Keepers Polka Dot Embossing Folder. Inked around the edges with Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise Ink.

Lastly, I used the new free embossing folder that came with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine – Issue 148. I used DCWV Cardstock Neutrals paper and then once the image was embossed I used very light sandpaper to go over the image and bring out the white core to enhance the image.

I layered all of the above using 3M VHB tape.

Lastly, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Jennifer Ellory – Bake a Cake Clear Stamps with VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail

Spectrum Noir Markers Used:

Hair: GB1, GB3, GB6

Eyes: LG2, Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen

Wings: BT2, TB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Dress: BT2, TB2, IB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Birthday Bears


Hi there,

Back to share a card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica Bears from  Too Cute by Jessica – Birthday-Girl-Bears

and Too Cute by Jessica –  Birthday Boy Bears for my Aunt’s birthday.

Sentiment on front of card is from JadededBlossom stamps “Party Animal”.

Dotted eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Used Wink of Stella – Clear on the pompoms and on the base of hat to add some extra sparkle.

I made the card so that the 2 front panels opened up to reveal the sentiment.

Here are some close-ups.

GirlBDyBear BDBoyBear

The bears were really fuzzy, but I put them through the Xyron, so they look a little bit scruffy. LOL! I still like how they turned out though. Hope you do too!

My aunt really loved her card. Made me very happy!

I used Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the pieces. For the bears, I used the scoring tool and mulberry paper. Then I just outlined the pieces so that I could see them better. Wet around the outlines and pulled my bear pieces apart to make them fuzzy. Added some brown chalk to give the edges some added dimension.

On the inside, I added this sentiment from  “Whatnot Sentiments Set Three – Your Next Stamp”.

Hope you like it too!!!
