Fiskars Fuse Letterpress

Here's a simple card using the Fiskars Fuse, this time I used just the flower letterpress plate and not the die to cut.  You can't see it in the photo but it leaves such a nice impression, really love how it looks in person.
The Peachy Keen face stamp is from the In The Garden Assortment pack, I love this set.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Sweet Birthday Wishes and the Trendy Twine is Tickled Pink.

As The Clock Strikes 12...

I finally had time to make a card using my new Christmas present the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System.  I really love it, the platform is large so you can run a whole 12 x 12 sheet of paper through.  No more cutting down pieces, plus the letterpress look is so cool, definitely going to have fun playing with this.
For this card I used the Curvy Square die and clock letterpress plate with silver ink and then I used silver embossed powder with some glitter after pressing.  The stamp sentiment is from Unity's November 2012 KOTM set.  Paper is some old scraps, thought it went well with the clock.

Warm Winter Wishes

The cool cats set from Peachy Keen Stamps is so cute and I love that you can get the coordinating svg files also, which I used for the cat and scarf.  The sentiment is also from the set.
I added the Santa hat from the Silhouette Online Store.
I used some Candy Cane Trendy Twine and the digital paper is Bo Bunny's Noel, I'm submitting this to the Peachy Keen Photo Inspiration Challenge and I thought the colors went pretty good.

Chalkboard Christmas Card

Hi everyone, I made some chalkboard Christmas tags recently and love the technique so much I thought I'd make a chalkboard tutorial using one of Lori Whitlock's vinyl phrases and a Christmas card.

I used Lori's Merry Christmas with Tree card and the Believe in the Magic of Christmas Vinyl.  These phrases for vinyl are just perfect for this chalkboard technique, it's a quick and simple project.

To check out the whole tutorial hop on over to Lori's Blog

Paper used Doodlebug's Home For The Holidays

Felt Christmas Ornaments

I am so please how these felt Christmas ornaments that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo came out.  I never cut felt I really wasn't sure what to expect, well the cameo really did an awesome job.
These files are all from SVGCuts, this is part of my design team project for the 12 days of Christmas,

I used the regular acrylic felt that come in the 9 x 12 sheets from Joann Fabric Store, nothing fancy, though I heard wool felt cuts even better.  I'm definitely going to make more of these for next year so I'll give the wool a try also.  I used both the Ultra and lite Heat and Bond, the lite for the base pieces because I sewed them by hand and the Ultra for the layered pieces which I ironed on.  It would be cute to sew each layer, but I really don't sew much so this is really a perfect project for me, lol!!

The cute gingerbread man is from the the Warm Gingerbread Cards kit, I was so impressed how it cut the white outline, that's pretty thin.  Some of the tiny circles did cut as good but I was going to use buttons and these dots anyhow.  I used some Berry Trendy Twine and a cute little holly button from Buttons Galore and More.

I love the peppermint, it's actually a card from the Clara Christmas Eve kit.  Here's so of the new Christmas Mint Trendy Twine, and another button from BG&M.

The cardinal is so cute, he'd make a great pillow I think, I may attempt that one day.
He's from the Merry and Bright Kit.  Some more Christmas Mint and button from BG&M.

And the cute little snowman is from Everyday Winter Cards, I used the new Blue Berry Trendy Twine on him.

For the directions and sizes used you can visit my Design Team page over at SVGCuts here.

The pretty Trendy Twine is Tickled Pink, one of my favorites!!

Santa Gift Box and Card

Hi everyone!!
Here's my Lori Whitlock Creative Team project, a cute gift set.
Love this adorable santa box and card from the Christmas Card Set 1,
from Lori's shop.

The box is so quick and easy to make, would be great for a teacher's gift or even for the whole class, I filled mine with some chocolate kisses.

The shape of this card is so nice, I changed the layout and added the Christmas Santa subway art, which I love!  I moved the holly to the side and added the ribbon and Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.

The paper is Echo Park's Reflections Christmas designed by Lori.  I added a beige layer to the back of the subway art and did a print n cut instead of cutting all the letters out individually.

Have a wonderful day!!

Magical Reindeer Food

This mini milk jug from Annie's Paper Boutique is so adorable, I couldn't wait to use it in a project.  I thought if would look so cute with this stamp from Jaded Blossom's reindeer poop set so I filled it with some cereal. This would be so cute to leave out on the table Christmas Eve and tell your kids whatever the reindeer don't finish they can have, my boys would have loved that!!
The pretty twine is one of the new colors from Trendy Twine, Christmas Mint, I love it!!
The adorable Rudolph I downloaded from the Silhouette Online Store, sometimes I don't like to cut out all the pieces so I assemble it in SSDE and do a print n cut, just saves time.
I used the candy charms and banners die from Jaded Blossom for the sentiment.
The tag I made real quick, it measures 2.75" x 7" and I added score marks at 3", the circle is 1.870" and I rounded off the top.
