Coffee Gift Card holder

I've seen tons of different versions of this card, so I kind of winged it and made a template on the Silhouette.  I was thinking it can be altered to hold a tea bag or packet of hot cocoa for stocking stuffers as well. I chose the embossing folder due to living here in Florida, I like to come up with some more realistic versions of Christmas themes better suited to the tropics :D.

Season's Greetings warm cabin

For this card, I used the free template from here :JJ Bolton Handmade Cards, played around with it a little in my Silhouette so I could make it a 3 layer 3 dimensional card.  The background is just some blue cardstock embossed in D'Vine Swirls.

A little Crabby

I have been really grumpy lately between work and taking care of my very unpleasant, 86 year old  grandmother while my folks are out of town for a few months.  Anyway, like a small child I take my aggravation out on the one I love the most, my poor husband.  I love him with all my heart and have absolutely no idea how he puts up with me.  This card, an elaborate dinner and an apology is all I have at the moment to show him I really do know that I have been a grumpy bear the last few weeks.

Tiki Turtle

I found this free cut file at Bird House Stamps . I thought it looked a bit like waves washing up on the beach.  I have this stamp from my Fiskars "Island Fun" cling stamp set.  I'm  not sure I'm happy with the colors and as busy as it is, it still looks like it's missing something to me.  Ah well, I do like the frame.

Olive Juice

I LOVE MY SILHOUETTE PORTRAIT!  OK, now that I got that out of my system, I got a terrific sale on some Cuttlebug folders directly from Provocraft last month.  The 4 folder "Coolio" set cost only $1.99 :D.  I've been dying to use the folders.  I found a pic of a martini online, uploaded it and played with it a bit to make my little martini and the "Juice" font that comes on all microsoft computers.  That was a pretty intricate cut, too.  Overall, I am pretty happy with the card

I am still having a ball playing with my new Silhouette!  This time, I uploaded a pic of a flip-flop and just the text of relax.  I've been dying to use this patterned paper for something, too. I thought this would be a fun, everyday card.

Second card made with my new silhouette.  I needed to make 3 graduation cards for some boys at my husband's work.  I made three, literal, silhouettes for them. 


So, last Christmas my husband and i were unable to exchange the gifts we wanted to.  Due to a good month (and having 3 paychecks this month :D) we were finally able to exchange our gifts.  Hubby got his PS3 and I...I got my Silhouette Portrait!!  I cannot believe it!  I installed the software over a year ago and now I finally have it :D (Happy Dance.)  So this is a card for my hubby.  I found a random pic of the Tardis , imported it and cut it out on the Silhouette.  the background is embossed with one of the cards from the "Coolio" collection.

Mother's Day

I used a new daisy punch, doubled it up and used a q-tip dipped in ink with hologram embossing powder for the centers.

Baby Boy

I have seen a hundred versions of this card online, but I'm not sure who to credit.  I believe the original was from Stampin' Up, but I really don't know.  i didn't have any instructions, so I just eyeballed it and used what I had on hand
