Snow Scene from Bird

I kept the best for last, I really love how this one came out....

I used once again a snow scene cutting files from Birds, and added a dark navy blue background, I also stamped a few stars to make the sky sparkle.

Behind the windows of the house, I glued a little piece of yellow felt, it looks like somebody is home.

Love that one!


Be Merry Ribbon Christmas

A fun card to make, using red ribbon... I run a white card stock through my cuttlebug in an embossing folder... it looks like a snowy background.

I printed the sentiment and made some holes in a tree shape, before threading the ribbon from behind.

I then added a red matting, and a little bow I made using a fork, I am sure you have seen this method. 

It allows to make a perfectly symmetrical bow every single time.


Chritmas Trees from Bird

Here comes a few Christmas cards using two different Christmas tree cutting files from Bird (

I just change the trees and backgrounds from Kraft to silver, and printed a few different sentiments.

The last one is even handwritten.

Some are double matted and some have an embossing line framing the card.






A New Home

Let's take a little break in the middle of the Christmas cards... i found that little home at Michaels, it is made of balsam wood, light enough to be added to a card.

It is from ArtMinds and they have a nice selection of design, painted or plain like this one....

I added some shinny red card stock in the openings, and two clouds punched with my Fiskars tool.

The sentiment was printed beforehand. 


Snow Scene Christmas Cards

Another amazing cutting file from Einnej a beautiful snow scene cut with my  Silhouette Cameo. 



I used two different designer papers to make the background of the snow scene, and stamped one of the sentiment in Stampin'up Pool Party green.

The other one is a sticker.


JOY, Christmas Cards

I needed to begin my Christmas cards, a little early, I know but I had some inspiration and help from Bird of course. Her cutting files are amazing, check out her wonderful blog:

I printed the background using the Simon font, it gives you a nice empty space where you can add some color, silver here.

The  snowflakes come from a QuicKutz Sparkles cutting file I run through my cuttlebug, and added two embossed lines to hold the silver snowflakes. Difficult to see but I also glued some little diamond in their center.


The swirly christmas tree is a Bird cutting file and there is also a little diamond at the bottom....

Simple, silver and classy... 


EKG Love Card

A fun card to make, the hardest part was to make the baker's twine (who has a will of its own) stay on the glued path...

I printed the sentiment.

Once that is done, add a kraft heart lined with white marker, and there it is!


With Deepest Sympathy

Another clean and simple card... I printed the sentiment in brown to match the band of designer paper, stamped two flowers from Martha Stewart clear stamps, and cut the two vases in vellum. 

I also added some sprinkles on the vases... for some reasons, they now look pinkish...

There you have it!


You're a Star

I found that idea on the net but unfortunately I lost the link... sorry about that...

The hardest thing to do was to center the star punch on the little dice... 

I drew free hand the lines to frame the card and added some stamped stars made with a  Skinny from Stamps by Judith.

I printed the sentiment, added some dimensional under the dice, and glued the baker's twine knot.


Thinking of you

Two different cards made almost the same way.

The first one is a sympathy card, with a card stock textured with a cuttlebug embossing folder, I also pinned the printed sentiment with two brads.


The second one is also made with a textured embossing folder and I added two clouds cut with my fiskars punches.

I cut the "you" with my slice and added a heart in yellow  felt.


Birthday Candles

This card used two different embossing folders, one to create the chevrons background and another one for the candles.

I cut around the flames to reveal the background, added some dimensional and baker's twine and used my copic marker to underline the flame.


Absolutely in Love

A printed card that took no tools but a lot of time in formatting... 

I learnt as I went...


Wedding Card

A very simple and formal wedding card, and I got to use my Slice to cut out the letters.

it is sometimes easier than to take out he cricut...

I used some shinny card stock to mimic the tuxedo, and added some texture to the background so the Mrs letter would not be too washed out.

The tuxedo needed a bow tie and some buttons, and the Mrs got a pearl necklace made with some loose pearls.

It was a fun card to make!


Adironback Chairs Birthday Cards

I made this adironback chairs card using a silhouette cameo cutting file I found on Einnej's blog, ( 

 That lady is an artist, generous enough to share some of her cutting files, go check out her beautiful blog...

I frame the scene in a blue background with eyelets on the rounded corners, and printed a sentiment in a cloud.

I added texture in the white card stock.


Happy Birthday Cruise Ship

I haven't been posting for more than 2 months, but that doesn't mean I haven't been producing cards...

Here comes the first of my 20 new cards, yes 20...
Let's see how many I can post today...

In the first card, I used my silhouette cameo to cut the ship wheel and the sentiment, and rounded the corners and added some eyelets.

The white card stock was textured with my cuttlebug and a sizzlix folder.


The second card is pretty similar, except I found the perfect water paper for the background, and added a sentiment I printed in circle.
