I just did a review over on Craft Gossip using the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing material which allows you to cut out fabric with a Silhouette die cutting machine. I was amazed at how clean it cut! For my project I cut out some banners, a bird and the word “happy” and ironed them onto some unbleached muslin, sewed on some buttons, added some ribbon knots and put it in a wooden embroidery hoop. I love my blue bird of happiness wall hanging, I think it’s adorable!

I just did a review for Craft Gossip for Silhouette’s new chipboard. This thin chipboard cuts easily with the Silhouette die cut machine and I’m thinking of so many things I can make with it like banners, shrine boxes, little houses….
I’ve seen a lot of pretty jewelry pieces lately made with layered die cut wood and thought I could do the same using the chipboard. So I cut out my shapes along with pattern papers in the same shapes and sizes and layered them, using a glue stick to adhere them together. I used two layers of the chipboard for the bases just so they were nice and sturdy. I added a little ink to the edges for even more dimension and then glued on pin backs. I think these turned out really fun.
It’s a little late for holiday cards but I had to share this one. It’s the card I made for my husband this year, inspired by the “Major Award” in a Christmas Story. All the shapes were die cut with my Silhouette machine. On the outside of the envelope I stamped a wood background and the word “fragile”, must be French.
I’m really excited to be using Inkadinkado stamps all this month over on the Craft Gossip blog! I got lots of wonderful stamps to play with and will be sharing samples and having giveaways all through October. You can visit the Craft Gossip stamping blog by clicking here.
Here’s one of my favorite cards I’ve made so far. I took the collage style cameo stamp and added a witches hat from another Inkadinkado stamp set and turned her into a witch. I used non traditional colors to make it more unique.
*BEEB BOOP BEEB* Here’s a cute Robot card I made with die cuts from my Silhouette. I made a hinge in his chest so it opens up with a stamped “I love you” inside. I added brads for his “bolts”. I love the notebook edge die, isn’t it cool? All die cuts are from Silhouette, pattern paper from My Minds Eye, the stamp sentiment is from The Stamps of Life.
Here are the cards I made for all the Dads in my life
This one is for my Dad and I also made a matching one for my Stepdad, they both love to golf. All the shapes are die cut from Silhouette.
This is for my Grandfather, the boat is a Silhouette shape and the compass stamp is from Judikins.
This last one is for my Father in Law, he loves nature and the outdoors. The trees are from Lawn Fawn and the fox is from Hero Arts. I love that fox, he’s so cute!
Playing around my my Silhouette die cutting machine and some black heat transfer material. I ironed the images onto unbleached muslin (which is hard to tell from the photo, the glass has some glare) and then put them in simple black frames. The deer image is from Silhouette, the fox is an independent file from the Wishblade Yahoo group, the font is called “elephant”, I love that font!
I’ve been using my Silhouette machine alot lately, I love mixing die cuts with stamps, it’s perfect if I need an image to complete a look I want but don’t have the right/perfect stamp and with the Silhouette I can make it any size I want. I love this machine.
Here’s a few cards I’ve made lately. The first card was for my besties b-day. It mixes a digital image of Marie Antoinette I colored with colored pencils from the Graphics Fairy site, (if you love free vintage images this is a must visit site, it’s awesome! I linked this to their Brag Monday) along with alphabet stamps and a die cut cupcake from Lettering Delights. I love how it came together.
The next card I made just wanting to play with shapes, the deer is from Lettering Delights, the rest are from Silhouette.
This last card was made for my husbands aunt who works on a horse farm here in KY. One thing I like to do when planning out a card that is all die cuts is to pull all the images I’m planning on using up on the computer screen at once, that way it’s easy to size and lay everything out to make sure it fits and looks good, I got that helpful tip from Nicole Magourik.
