Christmas cards

Happy Wednesday, everyone.
I think I'm going to make 2 cards of every design this year. Maybe I'm starting early enough to get them all done.
This is another card kit from the Silhouette online store, #36504. I cut it at 5 x 6 1/2. I added the branches with the MS branch punch.
Inside I used another Silhouette cut, lady decorating tree,#35778 cut at 3.3.






I am really enjoying the card kits from the Silhouette studio.
 Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

DIL Birthday card

Happy Wednesday all you bloggie friends. Hope you're having a great week.

Today I have a birthday card for my DIL.  Saturday is the day and she loves to shop. So it's cash or gift card for her. Of course I may bake her favorite brownies for her. lol

This sweet card is from a file I downloaded and cut with my Portrait. I found Adele and her wonderful designs on The Bug Bites. (She posts every week there) Her designs are free, just leave her a comment.  I love and appreciate you sharing your fabulous designs.

This card is cut at 4 x 6 with layers. I added the punched butterflies and tiny flowers.

I like the way it turned out.

New Box

Good morning! Hope you're having a great day.

I thought I'd start my day by entering some challenges.

On the Silhouette Blog it's anything from the store that's 3d. Yesterday they added some new things and I had to have the 3d watermelon box. I love 3d and couldn't wait to make it. It's perfect for a small gift or treat. I decided to make it a thank you treat box. , My darling SIL is taking my grandson for the day so I'll give it to her when she brings him back tomorrow. (tried to get her to take her brother, my hubby, too but she wasn't having it) lol  I added a blackbird (sil. store) and a sweet little tag, a little stickles and a button.




Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Challenges:

Silhouette blog - anything 3d
Craftin Deseret Divas - summer
Paper Playtime - use a tag
2 Creative Chicks - 3d

One of my sisters just turned 60 last month. This month they are having a surprise party for her. I don't think she'll suspect anything. Anyway this calls for a second card.
This cared cut is from the Silhouette store and cut with my Portrait, #3715. I just love this cut. I sized it to fit my mat and the P did all the work.

 
I glittered the card base then inked the filigree and glued it down. Spellbinders for the labels. The "60" was cut from Ashlyn's Alphabet with my E2 and glittered.
 
Check out the rest of the DT's projects. Create something and link it up at Jo's Scrap Shack.
The winner will be given a Guest Designer spot for August.
