Nautical Card

I created this nautical card with the Sailboat 6 X 6 Card Kit from Paper Creator.  I used Silhouette Studio DE to trace the life preserver, printed the image and cut out several layers with my Silhouette Cameo.   Inked the edges of the life preserver with a black Memento pen.  Cut out the 2 of the sailboat and lighthouse images by hand. Assembled all the layers, then attached them to the antique map background paper.  You can't see it very well from the photo, but all the layering gives it a lot of dimension and a 3D effect.

Little Brown Mouse Easel Card

I created this easel style card using a super cute mouse image and patterned papers from a wonderful kit called Little Brown Mouse Ultimate Kit available at the Paper Creator store.  Also used cut file #117494 by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette store. Corner pieces were die cut using a Whimsy Stamps corner die set.  All the other pieces were printed, then cut out with my Cameo.  Note, I made a few changes to the cut file.  I added two extra layers under the image and the patterned scalloped saying background layer for extra dimension.  Also increased the size of  circle with the image to cover the scalloped layer points which gives it a cleaner look.

You are SEW special

Here's a sewing theme card I made with a darling digi image called "Sewing Bears Thread" from the Bugaboo store.  I colored the bear with Copic markers and cut out with Spellbinders dies,  Used MFT blueprints dies to cut out the stitched layers,  Scalloped border was cut out with a Spellbinders die. Patterned papers are made by Wild Rose Studio,  The three embellishments I used are Prima flowers, pearls and satin ribbon.

I created the diamond print paper in GIMP using a template from Melstampz.  Created the scalloped card base using cut file 10396 from the Silhouette store.  (Resize the largest scalloped square to be 5 X 5.  Make a copy, then mirror above, overlap, then align image.  Merge all layers to form the card base.)  Colored all the layers with Studio, printed, then cut them out with my Cameo.  Attached all the layers to the cardbase.  Added some twine, then attached the Bently image with pop dots.

Here are the cut files I used from the Silhouette store:
