Cardmaking with Silhouette, Hero Arts and Copics

Uh oh, how fast the time flies !

It seems t'was just a few days ago when we were wishing you a happy new year, and now February's just a number of forty winks' away ☺. Before it arrives though, let us remind you about the fabulous (literally give-away!) offers that we have for our Frequent Shopper Card holders. Just drop by our store and have your fill of crafty supplies that could possibly last you for the entire year, granting you wouldn't fall in love with the New Arrivals that should be arriving by the truckloads next month, which we're very sure you will ! ☺

And since we've already told you about the wonders of the electronic cutting machine that we carry - no other than Silhouette SD of course, our designer's favorite stamp Hero Arts ,and the Copic Sketch Markers replenishment that was the topic of our previous post - here's a couple of truly DIVINE design inspirations created by our designer that should make you sit down and explore the magic that your Silhouette SD can do, utilizing all three !

Card was cut using Silhouette shape Design Card Kit Ornate, flowers from Hero Arts Blossom Art stamp, and colored using various Copic Sketch markers:

Here's another set of cards that are fun, funky , and quite different
from the usually dainty, feminine creations of our designer . "Poster" was cut using shape from Silhouette, the words "Wanted" and "One Amazing Friend" was typed utilizing the machine's Print and Cut function, stamped with image from Hero Arts' 2011 Howdy Set , and colored using various distress inks and Copic Sketch markers.

And here is one card that is very dear to the heart of our designer, as she has done it after spending copious amounts of time exploring what the new Silhouette software can do. She downloaded one of the Silhouette shapes Flower branch card as an inspiration. She utilized an image from Hero Art's flower stamp and used the trace function of the new Silhouette studio software to design an equally beautiful shaped card, and cut it from her Silhouette ! Amazing, isnt it?!

Still undecided whether Silhouette SD's the electronic cutting machine for you ? Then these cards should help steer you towards the right direction ! ☺

Happy week-end (shopping), everybody !!!
