Print and Cut Silhouette Challenge

Silhouette Challenges #15 "Print N Cut" Week 4

http://www.silhouettechallenges.com Linking to the HOST

I purchased this digital set this morning from Stampin Up's My Digital Studio.  I just love the colors!  I brought the .jpg files over into Silhouette Designer Edition and set up the cuts for the flower and for the tag.  I added the "Happy Birthday" to the tag in a color pick from the flower.  After printing the items, they went through the Silhouette and cut beautifully!  Even the narrow border was cut with a plain rectangle.

Box Cards!

These are all the rage now - and pretty simple to do.  I do them the quick and really easy way on my Silhouette Cameo.  Here are a variety of ones I've made recently.

Lori Whitlock via Silhouette Online Store.  Love this card for my friend's daughter!
For my Mother-In-Law's birthday coming up next month.  This is also from Lori Whitlock via the Silhouette Online Store.  This one is big!  It goes into an A7 envelope.
A friend of mine was married on July 5th and their colors were Red, White & Blue.  This pattern - at least the beginning of it is from SVGCuts.com and their Summer Box Card set.  The card was to have had a house and a tree.  I changed it to fit the occasion by adding the wedding cake and the "Mr & Mrs".

Going back to June, here is a Father's Day card from my favorite piano player.  This also came from SVGCuts.com Summer Box Card Set.  There had been flowers on the piano, but I removed them since it was for my hubby.  I added the "Happy" to the "Father's Day" that I stamped on the music stand.

These cards are so much fun to create and surprise my friends and family with.

Valentine Cards for my girls!

I did Pop-Up Valentines for my two sweet granddaughters.  The only difference is one has a monkey and the other an owl.  The With Love Pop-Up heart trees by Daniela Angelova are from Silhouette. http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/?page=view-shape&id=54218 and the Monkey and Owl are from Miss Kate's Cuttables.  http://www.misskatecuttables.com/

Both Cards have the Pop-Up bench and a red bird as well as the With Love.  The "grass" is a combination of Washi tape and YG03 Copic Marker.  The Sky is more Washi tape, BG02 and the cloud is a die cut.

The fronts of the cards were done with K & Co stickers.  (I was running out of time.)

The cards for my daughters and their hubbies are identical. 

 The heart paper is from the Stampin Up More Amore collection.  Mine is using the SU My Digital Studio and printing the paper myself.  (Love that option!)  The sentiment is a digital one with the oval cut around it on the Silhouette.  The Red Glitter oval is cut using a Spellbinder die. 

The inside is from Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge with the white scallop from another (can't remember which one) Cricut cartridge.

This card is for my daughter's sweet Grandmom.  It was done on the Silhouette using Abstract Hearts also by Daniela Angelova.
