More Fun with the Birthday Stamps From The Cutting Cafe Shop

Hi all! I am back again with another card made with the ADORABLE birthday stamps from The Cutting Cafe Shop. My favorite thing about these stamps is how you can use them over and over again without duplicating a card. (of course you can if you want to.) 

Here's the card I made tonight.

I used both of THESE stamp sets...

Another one of my favorite things about these stamps is how quick a card comes together. It doesn't have to take hours to make a cute card! (I'm usually one of those crafters that spends 3-5 hours on a card. Insert stressed smiley face here)

Ok, I'm off to do some more crafting! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great night!

Thinking BIG With The Cutting Cafe

Hello! This week at The Cutting Cafe we are thinking BIG.We could choose any file to work with as long as we made it big.I chose to work with the Step Cards file. The file comes with three different step cards. I enlarged the card to 11.25 x 11.25.


I cut the  Step Card and the waves out with my Cricut Explore.
 The waves are from Cricut cartridge Crocs Rule image #M3D519.

The cute little sea horses come from the Under the Sea...Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe. I used distress inks to give them color and a white gel pen for the highlights. 

 The image is Floating Pearls from Ching-Chou Kuik. I colored her up with Copic markers.

Thank you for stopping by tonight. Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe on the 21st to see what the rest of the DT came up with. If you leave a comment on that post you will be entered in a chance to win 3 free Cutting Cafe sets of your choice.

Have a great night!

Altered Cigar Box

Hello! I'm so excited to share today's project with you. It's an altered cigar box. 

I got the box from my 86 year old Great Aunt. Lucky for me, she has tons of them =) 

It started out as a bright red box. I gently sanded it down and then added 3 or 4 coats of Gesso.

Once the Gesso was dry I covered the box in pretty papers from Art Attack Supplies

Then I covered the box in flowers and embellishments from several of my favorite shops. I will leave the links below.

Here's a few more pictures...

Thank you all for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday With Stamps From The Cutting Cafe Shop

Hello crafty friends! I am so glad you stopped by today. 
I have been having fun playing with the new Happy Birthday Stamp set from The Cutting Cafe Shop

I used the balloon, party hat, cupcake and candle stamps from the set to turn a little Cricket  into a birthday alien. I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the Cricket from Kadoodle Bug Designs. Then stamped and fussy cut the birthday items from the birthday set.

If you own a Cricut Explore or Silhouette cutting machine, you probably have TONS of SVG animals and creatures you haven't ever used. With a stamp set like the Happy Birthday set you can turn any one of those SVGs into the perfect embellishment for a birthday card. Lets face it...we all need oodles of birthday cards! 

So, what are you waiting for?!? Hop on over to The Cutting Cafe Shop and check out this Happy Birthday stamp set =)

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a craftastic day!

Happy Birthday!

Hey! Hey! Hey! 
I'm back again today to show you a couple totally FAB stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe Shop

With these Birthday Party Stamps make the cutest cards in just minutes. 
Another thing I love about these stamps is that they encourage me to use up my scrap papers. I don't know about you, but I have a TON of scraps. I tend to forget about them until I get my hands on cute little stamps like these. 

Stop by The Cutting Cafe Shop and check out all the new stamps, papers and more!
