Peace On Earth - May You Have - Easel

Yogi here today with an easel card using one of the newest digital cutting files from Suzanne as a focal point. These words just begged to be made big...
This is what the file looks like available on the Silhouette onLine store

I'm also using a quote from Quietfire Design "May You Have The Gladness..."

Scored, and folded my golden toned beige cardstock to create the easel (6"w x 6"h). Cut another piece the same size as my card and adhered to front.

Electronically cut the "Peace on Earth" using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot software) and my Silhouette machine, sizing it to 5.8"h from white cardstock and while still on my mat, painted with Distress Dabbers "Tarnished Brass" acrylic paint. Removed from mat. Cut a shadow layer and painted that with "Black Soot", Adhered both layers together. Inked with Versamark and clear embossed then adhered it to my amethyst toned ribbed foil cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to front. Added a multi loop Sari ribbon bow.

On the Floor: Used my Misti to stamp the poinsettia (Penny Black "Scarlet Majesty") on HP watercolor paper using Distress pads ("Victorian Velvet" all over the flowers; "Dusty Concord" at the base and on berries; "Shabby Shutters" on the leaves; "Forest Moss" on stems and accents; "Mustard Seed" on the center), misted with water and stamped. Misted with more water and stamped again. Moved around some areas with a wet paint brush. Dried. Trimmed down. Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Sponged some purple around the edges. Added white pencil mark detail on the berries and Perfect Pearls "Butterscotch" dots to the center. Adhered to a piece of cardstock then on to floor using 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.

As a final touch, added the mini square amethyst rhinestones to the corners.

Holiday Snack Signs!

Santa Snacks Here Sign - Silhouette Design Store
A sign of the holidays?  Yes!  And holiday signs, too.
It's Suzanne here and I was working on some digital cutting designs last night (yes, this is what I do on Friday nights!) and uncovered these projects that I designed a couple of years ago.  Sometimes I just crack myself up!  I better take a set of these to our kidlets when we visit at Christmas.  It's important the reindeer know where to get their goodies.  They have to keep up their strength.

To make these, all you have to do is pop a piece of cardstock on the cutting mat and away you go!  You'll be all ready for Christmas Eve.

The Silhouette Sale is on now till December 5, 2016.  All designs are half price!  Yay!

So what do you leave out for the big fellow and his assistants?

Winter Love Polar Bear Bendy Card, In the midst of winter

Hi Y'all, Robyn here jumping on the Bendi Card bandwagon!
All Holiday files on sale till Dec 5!
On the mat
The squares are cut in black to create the face shadow. Suzanne thinks of everything!
The original file has a Print and Cut sentiment.

Printer fail ( are you listening Santa?) led to the silver thermal embossed stamped sentiment.
The beauty of digital cutting is with a minimum of effort you can customize, size, color, placement of every element and really make the project your own.

I'd love (pun intended) to see yours!
Please post on our FB page.

Merry Christmas Card Project and Silhouette Sale!

Here is a little Merry Christmas digital die cut that I've had hanging around for awhile.  I finally made it into a card! I wanted to finish it so I could show you this easy project and share information about the big Silhouette Sale.  Not only are the machines on sale, but so are all the designs in the Design Store!  That means all of my designs - over 500 of them! - are on sale.
So once you have your machine and this cutting file, here is one way you can use it!  Vinyl is perfect for preserving those fine hairlines.  It's amazing!



  1. Form a 7 x 4.5” tent fold card from cardstock.  Cut a 6 x 3.5” panel from the same cardstock.
  2. Cut two 6.25 x3.75” panels from gold vinyl.
  3. Cut Merry Christmas from gold vinyl: Place one piece of vinyl on the cutting mat and cut Merry Christmas - I used cutting depth 1.  Carefully “weed” out the counterspaces and excess vinyl.  Keep track of the dot on the “i”!  Cut a piece of transfer paper large enough to cover the design. Remove its release paper and place it on the vinyl Merry Christmas and rub.
  4. Lift the Merry Christmas from it’s backing and transfer to the cardstock panel.  Rub lettering onto the cardstock and carefully peel off the transfer paper.  Voila!
  5. Use double sided adhesive to assemble the card as shown!  
Now, I'm going to make a few more of these!  I hope this gives you some ideas for making your own cards.
Happy creating! Suzanne
