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.

This post for the design team of The Cutting Cafe features a newer and very fun file, the Pop Up Flower Card Template.  The magic comes when you open the card and the flowers bloom from the inside center..,

The set comes with the card base and layers for the outsides, the flowers, leaves, and other optional pieces like a fence,  sentiments, and smaller flowers, which I actually connected and used on the front.  Here is a better picture of the layers you can use on the front and back…

It is all about bingo cards for our design team post at The Cutting Cafe today!  There are many bingo card printable stamps sets to choose from but I decided to create my own using the Blank Bingo Card Printable Stamp Set and the Boy Hershey Kiss Bottom Printable Stamp Set.

I added a cute turtle chipboard embellishment and several of the kiss bottoms to make an adorable card!  I love the brown/blue/green color combo.  Here is a front view and the inside…

This week, for our The Cutting Cafe design team project, we got to play with the Assorted Pop Up Cards file.  It comes in two formats, with a single pop up or a triple pop up inside.  I chose the single pop up.  I also combined it with the Grad Hat Shaped Card file.

Pinwheel Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project and Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice

Pinwheel Card - The Cutting Cafe and Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice

Pinwheel Flower Scene Card

Hello All!  It is time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe, but I am also starting my first collaboration with Poetspice on YouTube.  So, this project is also my first for the Embossy Punch Collab with Poetspice, which we are to make projects using our embossing folders and punches!  I am excited to be a part of it.  There are several ladies in the collab and I will give you their YouTube Channels below.

For The Cutting Cafe Files, I used the Pinwheel Sentiment Set and then I added the grass using the Garden Stand Ups file.    I then used multiple punches and a couple embossing folders to complete the card.  I love the way it turned out!  For now, I have not added a sentiment as I am not sure what it will be used for.  But it can be for Mother’s Day, Friendship, Birthday, or even just because.

My Craft Space – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

21 Apr

We are doing something a bit different for our Design Team post for The Cutting Cafe.  We are sharing a look at our crafting spaces today.  Although my room is a total hot mess right now, I found a picture of it cleaned up.  Here is what I see when I walk in.

Craft Room

A little over a year and a half ago, I cleaned up and rearranged my room.  It is still set up that way and I did a craft room reveal on YouTube.  Since my room is too much of a mess to show right now, I will share that video, which also features two of my DT members and very good friends who were visiting for a crafty weekend.

But before I share the video, just a couple of things.  Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog to see the craft rooms of some of our DT members (and I am sure you will see Regina’s fabulous room – she is the owner of The Cutting Cafe and her room was featured in HGTV magazines and a couple of others).  We do post on the 7th and 21st of each month.  When you visit, leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice.

Thanks for stopping by!  Now, here’s that video…

Man Card Mondays #9 and The CC DT Project Bat and Ball Cards

Bat and Ball Cards

This week I combined Man Card Mondays and my The Cutting Cafe design team project.  Baseball season just started so I decided to use that theme as this was a free week and we could choose any file we wanted to.

I chose to use the Bat and Ball Shaped Card Set  and made two different cards.
