SNC Canvas Diamond Fold Card

Heres another shaped card tutorial using SNC Canvas. This diamond fold card shape was popular some time ago, but I thought I would show you how to make it in Canvas.

Once made you can resize it as you like, this one will fit into a 5×5 envelope.

I hope you like it.

ScanNCut Canvas Triple Easel Card

Following on from last weeks Zig Zag card, this weeks video will show you how easy it is to make this triple easel card using ScanNCut Canvas.

I thought the card I used was fairly sturdy but in retrospect I think I should have not put the dashed centre fold line on the largest heart, as it seemed to weaken the design and it couldn’t support itself properly.

The video on how to make the card and assemble it is Here

I hope you like it and are enjoying seeing the alternative shaped cards.

I have another one to show you so please subscribe to my Youtube channel to be kept up to date will all my postings.

Easter Cards

So Ive made a few more Easter cards, this time Ive made them using a free SVG cutting file from Birdscards, If you google you should be able to find the site and I found this design in the “shaped cards” section.

Ive used Papermill Linen effect white card as my base

Stampin Up designer series Paper

Stampin Up Card

The colours I’ve used are strawberry slush, costal cabana and crisp cantaloupe.

I added a little sponged inking around the edges of the bow for definition in matching colours and a little stickles glitter glue, simple but so cute I think.

All cut with ScanNCut on cut pressure 1, blade depth 5 for Papermill linen effect card, blade depth 4 for SU card and 3 for SU DS paper which is like a light weight card rather than paper.

My blade and mat are over a year old so you may want to test cut if you use the same products especially if your blade is newer.

A Sneak Peek at February’s Newsletter/Video Project

So as I’ve been snowed in I have been playing with and working out a project for my February newsletter.

I am giving you a sneak peek, and hopefully I will be able to record a video on Monday and get this out next week.

It’s looking cute though.

Cutout Card for ScanNCut

I saw something similar to the white part of this card on the internet I think it was a spellbinders die shape. Anyway I decided I would make my own in Inkscape, so I drew the shape and used the create tiled clone tools with rotate as I have shown in a video recently and created my own design.

I duplicated the design and used the path dynamic offset to create the outside of the shape bigger and when I put the two together I got this cut shape that has lift up sections.

I also made the scollop circle in Inkscape again I’ve shown how to do this In a video but it’s basically using the clone with rotate options again.

Easter Card

We are getting into Easter mode in my house at the moment, not eating eggs yet! But lots of cards being made one way or another.

This card I designed in Scan n cut Canvas and I think it’s turned out ok.

The card is from the Papermill I think it’s about 240gsm and I cut it on the regular mat blade4, pressure3, speed5

Scollop Easel. Card

I’ve made this little Easter card tonight, it was all made directly on the ScanNCut machine, except for the faux stitching, which I did with a 005 Micron pen.

The base card is two 4 inch scollop squares welded together, I also cut a 4 inch scollop square in white card and pink paper.

The eggs were cut at 2 inch and 1.5 inches. I used the bird border with the pen tool to decorate the large egg, this border was reduced from just under 12 inches which is it’s default size to 1.5 inches wide and look how good it still looks drawn with the pen tool.

A card made with the free ScanNCut FCM file I offered recently.

This is a card I’ve made for my brother in law using the free FCM cutting file I offered a few days ago.

I duplicated one of the designs and made a border and an outset mat. I think it’s turned out ok.

Here’s the step by step if anyone is interested.

Flowerpot Card

I had a lot of flowers left over from the wreath I made in the week and wondered what I would do with them.

I’ve seen these flowerpot cards on the internet so tonight I decided to make my own in canvas. It’s a nice simple shape so came together easily.

I already had the bow which was a Pazzles file so I converted it and sized it to fit my card. quite cute I think don’t you?

Now with a bit of added faux pen stitching.
