Primitive Bird

Joycee Card 1

Hey everyone. I have a lovely friend over on Ustream, The Frugal Eclectic (Joycee) who inspires me regularly. Her ability to take things I would normally throw in the recycle bin and turn it into something lovely. Well a couple weeks ago she made this sweet little card out of some paper she was painting on. Some of us loved the shape of her bird so much and the card we actually got her to measure it and give it to us so that we could all make a template (I added a wing to mine).

Joycee Card 2

I used some of my Graphic 45 French Country (8×8) that I have left in my stash. I lifted the card that Joycee had made fairly closely. Kept it simple and let the primitive bird stand out on the front. I used some May Arts twine to tie around the bird and the front panel. Behind that I have some DCWV burlap. All the papers have been inked with Walnut Stain.

Hey everyone! I am here with another card that would work for any love occasion or for Valentines day. I am really happy with the simplicity of this card.

I layered DCWV Adhesive Fabric to a piece of scrap cardstock. I absolutely adore the way the versafine ink and the sharpie pen bleed out ever so slightly in the fabric. The faux stitched lines were done with a ruler and a sharpie pen.

The Serendipity 6×6 pad (that I received in my colour add on from the hip kit) had the perfect pink patters to die cut the hearts from the Film and Polaroid die from The Greeting Farm, I then free handed a double outline around it.

Yuletide Blessings by Kay Roussel




Hi There Its Kathleen from Morgan’s Fancies here with my contribution to the October Holiday Cards hosted by the lovely Jessie Banks.

I have acquired the Silhouette Cameo this year and have been in love with it and want to thank Jess for the inspiration for using this wonderful machine in my card making efforts.

This card is built upon a white cardstock 6 x 6 card base. All files were either free files from a wonderful designer named Penny Duncan, her site is or were created by yours truly.

Here is the material list I used:

  • DCWV: The Christmas Stack 12 x 12 pad
  • Darice Core’dinations: Cardstock in Golden Pearl
  • My Mind’s Eye: Lost & Found Christmas 6 x 6 pad
  • Momenta Textured Cardstock 6 x 6 pad
  • American Crafts Cardstock
  • Various Cardstock scraps from my stash

I used a label cut file from Penny Duncan and altered it to fit my needs for this card. I then offset it twice to get the resulting two mats. The font used for the sentiment is called British Outline Masculine.

For the Fireplace I used Google to find a clip art picture and traced it in the Studio software. I then did two internal offsets to get the other layers.

For the Yule log, candles and flora I again used Google to find reference photos and drew out the log, candles, leaves and shapes. I added with fine line markers the texture lines on the log and leaves and used Bazzinks! Squares to outline it all. The candles are actually two layers. One white and one yellow I just snipped the white flame parts off and glued it down to the yellow. To make the flames stand out I also inked them lightly with Memento Ink in Morocco.

Once assembled the sentiment, fireplace and Yule Log were mounted on the Golden Pearl cardstock and popped up on some pop dots from my stash.

Inside of the card has a few layers from a Shapely cut file from Penny Duncan and printed a lovely poem about Yuletide I found while doing some picture reference researching for this project. This was printed using the sketch function of the Cameo and the font used was Black Chancery.

Thanks for checking out October Holiday Cards and stay tuned for more great cardmakers and ideas as the month continues.

Going to the Chapel


Here I went again using some patterned paper, I have some seriously ancient paper pads in my stash. This is an old DCWV paper pad, I have had it for ages, all the patterned paper and the flocked flower stickers came from that paper pad. (I can not remember the name of the pad if you would like to know just leave me a comment and I will find the name of it for you.

DSC_0049I really did love those flocked flowers, and I think they look very classic on this card. I also used red and black cardstock (I believe they are Bazzil Cardshoppe cardstock) just to add to the richness of the card.

The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder and the stamp it’s self is a CC Designs set called Wedding Labels.
