Coffee or Tea Dingbat Font- Coffee and Friends are the perfect blend.

Hi Y'all!
Robyn here on vacation this week, so I made two cards last week, using the same files and 
to show you the versatility you get with each purchase from

The shaped card is created from the
Coffee or Tea? Dingbat Font
On the mat

Install the font and you get 26 designs to cut, sketch, whatever !

Design mat

Hints:
  • Make several copies of each image so if you mess up modifying  you have another one handy
  • use text to mark images you want to save, identify. 
    • Set the text in the image to "no cut" right away so you don't forget!
  • Have fun, mix and match, modify and see what happens! It's only on the screen.
  • Cut out dummies with copy paper to make models to see if you like it before using the good paper and vinyl.

New Stamps

Lots of new files and stamps yet to share, so please come back often!
More inspiration to be found at Quietfire Creations-keep your eyes peeled for upcoming designer challenges!

Home On The Range - Heart Of Country Font - You Are The Best


Yogi here today, and since it's almost Father's Day, thought I'd make a nice western card for a guy...

The font "Heart Of Country" works great in emails, Word, Excel etc. I used it in my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot)

I'm using sentiment stamps on the floor from Quietfire Design  ("I Don't Tell You Often Enough" 5pce set);

These are the electronic cut files I'm using from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to 

purchase. 

https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/view-shape/268946https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/view-shape/267816

Opened SCAL software and the Home On The Range file. Ungrouped, removed some of the items keeping the hat page and the horse page, the square and the hat and leaving all at the size opened. Click on images to enlarge.




Positioned the horse page and hat page. Butted up the edges to meet at the middle. Used the square and enlarged it to hide the opening of the hat page (see 1st pic above). Grouped and then selected it all. Welded (see 2nd pic above).

Selected the "Heart of Country" font and typed each letter for "DAD" separately. Twisted and repositioned them to overlap. Grouped them, resized to a total of 2"wide, and welded together.

Cut away the horse from the easel structure, score and fold to create the easel.

Cut a horse page, color as desired and adhere to front of card. I colored direct to paper with Distress mini pads "Black Soot" for the horse, leaving the tail and feet white. "Tea Dye" for the ground area. I left the frame on the horse page white.

The Hat page, colored the frame with some brown and embossed with Emerald Creek Baked Texture "Dirty Sand" embossing powder. Colored the hat on the hat page with "Antique Linen" and the single hat with "Brushed Corduroy". Adhered to hat page, then onto front of card.

Colored the DAD with "Faded Jeans" and clear embossed. Adhered diagonally across frame edge.

On the floor: Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
Adhered square gems as my stopper.
