Digi stamp Boutique
Well back to Christmas cards this week and I got this fab digi stamp from DigiStamp Boutique this week and its so cute and Christmassy
I loaded the image into Craft Artist and as it is a png I was able to put it over some backing paper that also got from DigiStamp Boutique I got this idea from Donna Barber. and it is a lot easier than cutting it out and layering.
The Card was cut out on my silhouette from a downloaded file called centre panel step card, I also loaded the backing paper straight into the silhouette and used the print and cut feature for all the backing pieces. My sentiment was from digistamp boutique too and printed and cut with the silhouette.
I have colour the image with pro markers and have glittered the snow and used glossy accents on the baubles and the snow mans lovely carrot nose.

3D Picture Box

Just thought I'd have a break from Christmas craft this week and try some thing new too. I was inspired to do this from a pin on pinterest
I printed a sheet of backing paper with a great text pattern and then put it into the silhouette cameo to cut out the hearts. I  used the negative part of the of the hearts as a template to line up the hearts on a plain white background. I print the pattern again to create a border.
I distressed the edges of my hearts with tim holtz antique linen distress inks and for the red one I used xmas red stickles.
I used 3d pads to lift the hearts for a great 3D effect.
I got the 3D box from hobby craft it was already painted white. Hope you like it.

Christmas Bits and Bobs

Well I've been using the silhouette cameo again I downloaded this cute reindeer from the store its the perfect size to put a little chocolate in. I have made them for hanging on the Christmas tree for hidden treats

I punched a hole on either side and threaded butchers twine through for the hanging. For his little eyes I used flat back pearls and a lovely red rhinestone for his nose and the holly.

I have also made these gift tag labels using the print and cut feature on the silhouette and again used butchers twine. They were very quick and easy to make.

La Pashe

I love the La Pashe CD Roms they are great, I have made a birthday card for a friend who is turning 50 and he loves fishing.


The CDs provide great co coordinating papers, the main card background is from my stash. I made the rosette with the silhouette cameo. It was a quick make and my friend loved it.

 La Pashe Christmas Cards


For these I used 8 x 8 embossed cards and used my Craft Dragon for the hot foiled sentiment. The Holly took some time to cut out but it was worth the effort.
I used a quickie glue pen a gave the leaves some glitter and used glossy accent on the berries.
These are some other images on the CD I love the poinsettia decoupage.

Christmas Snowflakes Using the Silhouette Cameo

I have really put my cameo to work this year with these fab snowflakes the snowflake was purchased from the silhouette store.
In my picture you can see how I placed the snowflake into the square to form my topper.
I cut lots out and ended up with lots of spare snowflakes so I decided to use these as well as you can see in my pictures
 For the sentiment I use my craft dragon to hot foil the merry Christmas. I also used crafters companion spray and sparkle on my coloured paper which has added a great sparkle.
Hope you like them.
