A birthday card

Inspired by a friends card to put a cutout on tag…


Used a Cheery Lynne die for the heart colored with copic to match doggies tongue, the sentiment was hero arts from a peacock stamp sheet, and I copic’d the phyllis harris image stamp from Unity.  The base is a sugar cane A7 card from Blick Art Supplies.  The little heart stamp is from the Simon Says Stamp KOM and those little flowers at the bottom are some doodlebug paper borders from years ago that I found in my stash and colored with copic to match.

Much happier with this attempt here which is a pretty much flat card, used a Bella Blvd / Unity stamp.

Both use the same My Minds Eye 6×6 paper pad — just used the negative of the cutout for this one. My Minds Eye washi tape, and soft granite Hero Arts ink

This one was inspired by the cute penguins on glad plasticware packaging over the holidays. I scanned in the penguin, and lassoed just one using photoshop. Then opened up the jpeg in Silhouette Studio and traced the outline to create a print and cut. Used Martha Stewart snowflake punch to embellish.


The background was a spellbinders embossing plate sprayed with mister hueys calico white. The tag is a hero arts framecut

Holiday Cards 1

Used my favorite memory box holiday birdie die and matching stamp. Used a Stamping up branch embossed in white. And part of another memory box die frosty border.

To facilitate making a bunch of them, i stamped the matching stamp on paper, then used silhouette studio to trace the outline(offset slightly) and then just the hat without an offset. Cut the hat out of velvet paper, And the bird out of white paper. Stickled, colored with color pencil. So ended up not using the die after all since my silhouette did the cutting for me.
