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.

Encouraging Hope Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Hope Card

Hope Card

Today for The Cutting Cafe, the design team worked on things for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I know a couple people, including a former co-worker, Molly, and my cousin Kim who have both just beat breast cancer and I am very happy for both of them!  It takes a lot of prayer and support for a person to make it through and these two are living proof that survival does happen and that God has the last word!

For my project, I used the Hope Shaped Word Card and the Breast Cancer Hershey Kiss Box Set.

I used the kiss bottoms as sentiments on the card and added glittered scallops and half back pearls.  On the back, I added a reminder…

I am loving this cute gift card holder I made!  I used two stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  On the front, I stamped the cardstock with the Birthday Party Background stamp and the make a wish sentiment is from the Birthday Party Fun stamp set.  The base is cut from gold metallic paper.  Here is the back…

The additional element to this is the insert that holds the gift card…

The gift card goes on the front of the insert and you can add a note or any time of sentiments on the back.  I used two sentiment stamps from the Birthday Party Fun set…

Birthday Fun Cake Card

Birthday Fun Cake Card

I made this cute birthday card for one of my husband’s staff members.  I used the BIrthday Fun Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  You can find clear stamps, ribbons, paper, clear cardstock, and other embellishments.  Also, you can have custom stamps made!

I used the cake and candle from the stamp set and the outline shape SVG file that comes with the set (it comes in PDF and other versions too). I added clear Wink of Stella to give the cake a frosty look and yellow Stickles for the flame.  I used a Spellbinders die set in peach and cream and gold metallic paper on top of a cream base. I added little gold Dazzle gem stickers in each of the circles of the die cut.

Both the sentiments on the front and on the inside are from the stamp set.

I am back with another project using the Everyday Elisha Jean Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop!  This time I used the Ruby J. friend a the focus.  I used bright colored paper and the Assorted Card Folds Set 2 – Fold with Circle Window from The Cutting Cafe.

I added clear cardstock (which is also available in The Cutting Cafe Shop) to the window. I made a larger oval and attached my fussy cut Ruby J. to it. In between I added flower sequins and pink seed beads and put together with foam tape.  I love how it came out!

Here is the insid…

Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Super Twisted Note Card Swap

Cards and Envelope Box

My friend Tmika host great swaps all the time on YouTube. The latest one has us using techniques and embellishments.  The 3 x 3 cards had to have a combination of four or more things going on.  I used five techniques…dry embossing, distressing, texture paste stippling, glittering the texture paste, and splattering/ misting, and four embellishments…flowers, punches, twine, and a dazzle sticker.

Here is a close up of the card…
