Merry Christmas Ornament Card - 2nd post today




Woohoo, I have 8 more cards to go and I will be done for this year!  As you have probably noticed, I'm using my Cameo a lot this month.   (I am trying to use some of the many cut files I bought but haven't used.)  This cutting file is from the Silhouette store. (see picture above with details from the store)  Other supplies used:  Bazzill Basics designer paper, Neenah white cardstock, rhinestones, silver cord and my Silhouette Cameo.

Snowflake Swoosh Card #2


Here's a slightly different version of the snowflake swoosh card I made earlier this month.  This time I used blue/green smooth and textured white card stock.  And I used pearls instead of rhinestones.

Holly Time


I love all the cute images from Sylvia Zet at Wee Stamps, but my budget won't allow me to buy all the ones I would like. So I was thrilled to find these precolored images that have 6 on a sheet at Joann's on line store manufactured by The Hobby House.  Also used Spellbinders dies, Snap Color Vibe designer papers from Hobby Lobby, rhinestones, ribbon and snowflakes I cut out with my Cameo.

Holiday Card #5 for the Caring Hearts Card Drive





I am trying to learn to use PSE, but I'm really struggling with the program.  I am determined to learn at least the basics of using it with digi images, so I watched a few videos on the internet this morning.   I was able to figure out how to download and install patterns in the program, then color in digi images with those patterns.  I also learned how to add the bottom saying layer by reading Jin's blog at Under a Cherry Tree.  The rest of the card was created in Silhouette Studio DE and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.  This adorable snowman is a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps.

This is going in the package to the Caring Hearts Card Drive.

Holiday Cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive




These are for the Caring Hearts card drive.  They will be given to nursing homes around the country to cheer up the residents who don't have families.  The pretty pine tree precolored digi is by Fred She Said.  So is the torn edge svg cut file I used for the card on the right.  I got these from the FSS store last year, but this is the first time I have used them.  I selected the pine trees because I wanted a card that could be given to either a man or woman.
