Halloween Bendi Card - Wicked Collection

Suzanne came out with this fabulous Bendi  Hallowen card available on the Silhouette onLine store and had to make it. BIG GRIN.

The Halloween Wicked stamps I used are from a huge sheet of Halloween stamps. Suzanne only has a couple sets left and then they'll be GONE...

I opened the Silhouette file in Studio and resized it to fit my 11"w black cardstock. Cut the moon from white cardstock.

Edged various elements using either Liquid Pearls "Avocado" on the trees; "Platinum" on the moon; Viva Pearl Pen "Silver Chrome" on the cross and gravestones; gold metallic gel pen on the bird and added red glitter on the eyes.

Stamped the quotes using Distress Picket Fence and embossed with detail white embossing powder.

Folded on the score lines and inserted the tabs into the slots to create the Bendi form.

Un-tab tolay flat to mail - mention some assembly required...

Sometimes we need to share larger photos than you see on the Silhouette Design Store and this is one of those times!  This week you can actually get some pointed pen lettering in the modern calligraphy style with your boxes!

This tag box is made with gorgeous Maja Designs paper!

I've added to the Doily Card collection with these two seasonal designs which are perfect for sending a little hello to friends!

Happy cutting!

Knitted Star

Hi Y'all, Robyn here, just not feeling the holidays on a sunny, dry 80F. day!
Faux Stitched cards are all the rage, and Suzanne does not disappoint giving us a series of 
Faux Knitted Cards, that can we used for multiple occasions!

All designs available in the Silhouette Store

On the Mat
 My work mat.
I added a offset to the star.

The innermost star is cotton fabric treated with Terial Magic. 
You cut it on the mat just like paper. It is machine stitched to the offset, just for fun.
The card base is bordered with Deco Arts Metallic Luster- Rose Gold- one of my fav new (to me) products.
Rubbed onto almost any surface you get a gleaming metallic look.

The Knitted Series

These would all make great ornaments and gift tags too!

Comments and Questions warmly welcomed!

 I opened the Silhouette files in Sure Cuts A Lot software. I left the "Relax" & "Smile" the size they were, adding a shadow layer at 1.0 larger and a 2nd shadow layer at 2.0 from white cardstock. While still on the mat, painted with acrylic daubers - the top word in "Spiced Marmalade", the 1st shadow layer in "Peeled Paint" and left the 2nd shadow layer white. Removed from mat and inked the top word with Versafine and embossed with Emerald Creek "Thanksgiving" embossing powder. Adhered the 3 layers together.

Cut the ampersand from white cardstock, painted with "Mustard Seed", inked with versamark and embossed with yellow embossing powder. Painted the shadow layer with the peeled paint. Adhered the 2 layers together.

Cut the leaves from white cardstock, sponged with Distress "Mustard Seed" all over than here and there with various other colors ("Fossilized Amber", "Carved Pumpkin", "Lucky Clover", "Forest Moss", "Worn Lipstick"). Scored vein lines on the backside of each leaf, then hit the high points direct to paper with the forest moss.

Side folded my mango toned cardstock.

Cut a piece of translucent vellum and embossed using Crafts Too "Feathers" embossing folder. Trimmed down to 1/8" smaller than my card front. Adhered with ATG tape.

Adhered all my electronic cut pieces, adding a piece of gold/gold Sari ribbon diagonally under the "smile" word.

As a final touch added an amber pearl for the dot on the smile...

On the inside: Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Colored the leaf with a yellow colored pencil.

Adhered some leftover leaves
