Cutting Vinyl on the Silhouette for Holiday Ornaments

December 15th, 2014

Hi, Happy Monday! Can you believe that the holidays are only a little over a week away! Today I am sharing a project to assist with your holiday décor, but they also make lovely gifts! I will also demonstrate how to cut vinyl on the Silhouette. The new Cameo is available here at the Cut@Home website! We also have one left of the older version of the Cameo, that is brand new, never been opened, and at a steal of a deal – only $209.99!

This was such a fun project to make and trending in the craft world right now! Glitter Ornaments decorated with vinyl, they are absolutely stunning, and if you have a Silhouette you can purchase cut files for ornament boxes, so they make a perfect holiday hostess gift, or personalized ornaments for friends and family.

To start you will need fine glitter, floor polish ( I used Pledge Future), but you can google it: www.google.com this for other recommended products. I hear that the pump hair spray works well too, and it is less costly that the floor polish.

There are a few different methods to this but I will share what worked best for me. I used glass ornaments, fill the ornament almost to the top with the polish, do not shake the polish at all, this will cause air bubbles. Pour the polish back into the bottle slowly rotating the ornament so that all sides of the neck of the ornament are covered. Let the polish drain out for a minute. Next pour your glitter into the ornament. Slowly rotate the ornament in a circular motion to cover the ornament with the glitter. You will be able to see if everything is covered as you are rotating it. Once you have full coverage pour the remaining glitter out of the bulb, let the bulb dry.

Now I will cover how to cut the vinyl on the Silhouette:

I hope the video makes sense and is easy to follow. You can customize them with names, dates, whatever you want. Cut@Home has Silhouette America brand vinyl available for purchase. I like the Chalkboard vinyl, I am thinking of doing an ornament with that! For the snowflakes I used a Spellbinders die set called Snowflake Bliss. The Spellbinders dies also cut the vinyl like butter.

After I adhered the wording and snow flakes I added bling! (of course!!!). I am planning on making boxes for my ornaments, I purchased a cut file from the Silhouette On Line Store, they have a few different ones to pick from. www.silhouetteonlinestore.com

Here is a look at my finished project:

Here is a list of supplies that I used that are Available on the cut@home website:

SKU: S4-433 – Spellbinders Snowflake Bliss
SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T – Silhouette Cameo (This is the original)
SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-2-3T – Silhouette Cameo ( This is for the new one, it’s on my wish list!)
SKU:657900 – Sizzix Big Shot (used for cutting the Spellbinders dies)

After making these ornaments I decided that I am going to make ornaments for my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter! I normally buy them an ornament each year, but I think these are awesome, so I better get busy!

Till next time, Thanks and Happy Scrappin,

Box Easel Card with Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower collection

December 12th, 2014

Karen N here today with a fun box-easel card using the beautiful Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower collection.

CAH-boxSunflower1

 

3-D cards are SO fun, and this one is super easy to make.  The base of the card is 4 1/4″ x 11″ and the front piece is 5 1/2″ x 3″.

To make this card, score the base at 1/2″, 2″, 4″ and 5 1/2″.  Score the smaller front piece at 1/2″ and at 2″.

The panel sizes on the card base are:  Back (polka-dot in picture) 4″ x 3 1/2″; base and step (light greenish in picture) 4″ x 1 1/4″; front (plaid):  4″ x 1 3/4″.  Note that I added a scrap piece of chipboard to the base of the card to give it a little weight (so it stands well).

On the front piece, the patterned panel sizes are:  front (with the sunflower stamp): 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″  and top (cannot be seen in pic): 2 3/4″ x 1 1/4″

Here is a video that shows you the full process once you have all of your pieces cut.

 

I hope you decide to make a box easel card.  The fun part about this card is that it folds up into the size of a regular A2 envelope.  I put the sentiment on the back (and will write there).  Here’s a picture from the front.

Cottage Cutz Holiday Lights card

December 11th, 2014

Lights are so a part of the Holiday celebration, you see them on homes, parks and businesses around the World.  It’s no wonder that I absolutely adored this die from the moment I saw it.

P1140649

I incorporated Cottage Cutz Holiday Lights die into my Christmas card today.  I wanted to share how you could take one focal panel from a paper collection and make your card as I’ve shown here.  So many collections including Heartfelt Creations (which today’s decorative paper comes from) have cut aparts or decorative elements on their papers that could easily be cut to fit the front of a card base.  Mine today is a standard A2 sized card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, using white for the card itself and accenting with magenta ink around the edges.

P1140657

This die comes with little bulbs you can cut from different colored papers but I wanted to see how it would work to cut one strand from white cardstock and use my pens to color them to match my color scheme.  Worked great although I had a few hiccups along the way, I left them in the video so you can say ‘looks like something I’d do’ and I also showed the quick fixes to rectify the errors.  That’s so much of what paper crafting is all about, we all make mistakes but it’s often very easy to fix the boo boo and no one is the wiser.  I pulled out my Glitter Snow again, I just love this stuff for giving that snowy look to my projects.

P1140655

Today’s video will also show you a slick trick for getting your glitter onto your script, and most important having it stay.  I used an older die from the Spellbinders Nestabilites line called Classic Scalloped Squares for my  sentiment to rest on and the words from Tim Holtz Holiday Words die set.  I hope you’ll join me below on the video as I walk you through the whole process of creating this card.  Directly below you’ll find the supply  list from the store.

Thanks everyone,

Patti

Christmas Tag and Gift Card with Tim Holtz and Silhouette Cameo

December 10th, 2014

Hello! Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I have a fun Christmas tag to share with you! This tag also holds a gift card.

DSCF7002                           DSCF7007

I first cut out the tag from the Silhouette Cameo. I cut the tag at 7 1/2 x 3 3/4, to give me a jumbo sized tag. I cut four tags, and adhered them together, making it very sturdy! I used Heidi Swapp’s Vintage Chic paper collection for the background. I then added some dimension with a stencil and Modeling paste. I used some silver glitter tape from American Crafts down the front of the tag, along with flat-back pearls for more dimension. I did add a small piece of lace doily to the tag as well.
I used Tim Holtz Layered Angel Wings die…this was so much fun to play with! I distressed the wings, along with the edge of the tag in Distress Ink, Vintage Photo. I also added stickles to the wings. I then used the beautiful Kaisecraft Mannequin die. This is probably one of my favorite dies I own.

DSCF7019

Using a few pieces of light-weight chipboard, I added Pink Paislee’s Snow Village paper to the top of that, making it very sturdy, then added a rhinestone buckle & pearl.
I wanted to add a Poinsetta flower, and I had the perfect one in my stash. It has gold stamens in the center of it, which gives it that perfect pop of gold to my project. I added a few leaves under the flower.

DSCF7003 DSCF7004 DSCF7005

 

To the bottom of the tag, I wanted it to be a little frilly, therefore I added some beautiful trim, and wrapped it around the entire tag. I used a 1/2″ circle punch to give my tag a hole reinforcer (just for looks), and added cream satin ribbon, tied off with cream colored baker’s twine.
To the back of the tag, I wanted this to also serve as a gift card holder, therefore I added a small brown paper bag, along with silver glitter tape, seam binding, and some berry spray.

DSCF7007                    DSCF7006
Die-Namites Floral Deer die is such a fun die to work with. To me, it looks amazing when you add gold enamel powder to it. To give this tag a perfect finish, I just had to use one of Tim Holtz’s  Holiday Words Script dies, using “Wonderland”. I’m in love with this font, and it finished off my tag perfectly!!

The gift box I made previously is a great match to this gift card holder.

I’m really excited to give this tag to someone special this Christmas. I think it’s a beautiful way to present a gift card.
