Whimsical Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

21 Jul

Fun with Silhouettes Angle View

This week for our The Cutting Cafe Design Team project, we were to use the Fun with Silhouettes Printable Stamps and Cutting File which is full of fun shapes that you can print or cut!

I chose to use the rainbow and clouds shape to make this whimsical card.  I just love the way it turned out.  I used a Spellbinders die to create the card.  I am also using this for a collaboration project where I have to use any two of beads, metal, or fiber.  I used sparkly tulle for my fiber, and a metal piece with birthday on it.

Clean and Simple Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Clean and Simple Card

Clean and Simple Card

Happy New Year!  Welcome to my first post of 2017.  This post marks my fourth anniversary as a design team member for The Cutting Cafe!  Check out my very first post for the team here.  I still have that project proudly displayed in my craft room!  I have loved bringing you projects for the shop and hope to continue to bring you inspiration for a while to come!

With that being said, for our first project of 2017, we were tasked with doing a clean and simple card using the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 1 or the Everyday Greetings Printable Stamp Set 2.  I used the first set and used two sentiments from the 1a set.

I used additional Spellbinders shapes on the inside and matted a second sentiment from the file.

Flip Book Swap on Crafters with Artitude on Facebook

I made my first Flip Book!  I participated in a one-on-one swap with Kamisha who is VisionsofParis115 on YouTube through the Facebook Group Crafters with Artitute!  I had just learned about flip books when the swap went up so I thought what better way to jump in.  In a way, the flip book is the new pocket letter.

I decided that I wanted my book to be more than a pen pal letter so I went more of a photo book route with it and I hope Kamisha is ok with the direction I chose.  Here are some pictures…

The focus of the projects for this post is the With Gratitude Printable Stamp Set.  This file has over 70 images including many sentiments in square, round, and rectangle shapes, background images, and borders.  Some come in color as well as black and white and some come in a couple different sizes.

I also used the Large Top Box template .

I used one of the treasure word definition sentiments on the front of the box.

I wanted the box to look great from both sides so I added another sentiment on the back…

I printed the circle printable background from the file and usedit to cut out the liner pieces of the box.

A great thing about the Large Top Box is that it adjusts to whatever you need to go in it as it slides to fit.  Here is it with nothing in it…

When you add your goodies the top will just sit on top of your tallest item.  Here is what I put in mine…

The design team at The Cutting Cafe is shaking things up this week with fall and Halloween shaker cards!  There are so many to choose from.  Just take a look here and here!

I chose the Pumpkin Shaker Card Template version to use.  I put the shape on a card, but you can also make the whole card pumpkin shaped.

I love the fall colors of this and the shaker has flower and leaf shaped sequins and gold microbeads.  I decorated the inside too.
