Scrap Time Again!!

Well it's that time again, too many scraps, so I'm making the patchwork cards. I love putting these cards together, I pick random pieces of scraps using a 1" punch and stick them down on a piece of copy paper that I run through my xyron. On this piece I inked the edges of the squares before I placed them down on the paper. When I'm finished with my pieces I place the patchwork down on my mat and cut out the shape, here I used the pumpkin from SVGCuts.com's Pick a Pumpkin Svg Kit. Using a white gel pen I dashed around each piece to give it more of a stitched look. If you have a ton of scraps like I do, try this, I love to see how it comes out, you never know until it's cut out.

Happy Birthday Rory!!

Today is my son Rory's Birthday and I made this card for him. Rory is a hat person, so I thought the Mad Hatter which is a free download right now at SVGCuts.com, would be so fitting for him. I put the pieces together in Make the Cut and shadowed it, made a copy of the shadow and welded the two together to form the card. I cut all the pieces of the character on white cardstock and colored them with my ProMarkers, love those markers. I love making shape cards, it's one of my favorite things to do.

Cuddly Friends Treat Holder

I love the Cuddly Friends Collection over at SVGCuts.com especially the Halloween characters. I already made a popup candy holder card, but I seen this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFAIcwstmv0&feature=player_embedded and thought the cuddly friends would look so cute on there so I created this mtc and svg file to use with them and to give out to the kids at Halloween. I resized all the character pieces in Make the Cut to 4.5 high, make sure you lock aspect ratio. If you follow the video you should have no trouble assembling it.

As you can see the head is placed on the top flap.

And the body on the inside.

Cuddly Crow

I think the crow from SVGCuts.com Autumn's Cuddly Friends kit is just too cute and I thought it would make an adorable birthday card for my Nieces little boy Aiden who will be 1 next week. I assembled the pieces together in Make the Cut and made a shadow, duplicated it and welded it together.

I should add, I cut everything on white paper except for the black and colored it with glimmer mist.

Garden Nouveau's Cutout Butterfly Card

Here is a quick card using some cuts from SVGCuts new kit, Garden Nouveau. I really love this kit, who doesn't like butterflies!! I joined three of them to a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" rectangle in Make the Cut to form the card. I used perfect pearls cooper as the accent color. Right now if you spend $9.98 you get the kit for free.
