Cards, Stamping, Die Cutting, Paper Crafting, Digital Cutting & More!

Category Archives: Bosskut Gazelle









Good morning! I had some time over the past few days to work on some cards. I love snowflakes and will never have too many snowflakes, whether they be stamps, dies, or cutter files. For these cards I used Spellbinders Create a Flake, 1 & 2, Cheery Lynn Cathedral Lace (for the wise men card), and Memory Box snowflake, flourish, and snowflake border dies. The white poinsettia is from Bosskut and is a digital cutter file. Both sentiments are from Verve stamps (they have excellent quality stamps and fast shipping!) and the Three Wise Men stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms. I bought this stamp well before they closed and sold their online shop, however, the new owners had their grand opening this past weekend.

Isn’t this “baker” sweet? I kept this card simple and only added a birthday sentiment. The image and sentiment are both from Whipper Snapper and adhered with pop dots.

I was thrilled when (thanks to Sandy’s post HERE) I was able to use KNK Studio software to trace this stamp and cut it using a digital cutter. I love my images cut out, but let’s face it, it isn’t always easy or convenient to do it by hand. My KNK decided to take the weekend off so I converted my file and cut it using the Gazelle. Perfect! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies – PTI Kraft cardstock, Ramsay, All Things With Love, PTI Double Ended Banner Die, pop dots, Copics, KNK Studio software, Bosskut Gazelle

Isn’t this a fun card?  It’s part of Shelly’s Art Quarterly Membership.  You get 20 cutter files for $10…now that is a steal.    I didn’t use all the elements for my card, but you get layering mats and pieces…that’s .50 for over 15 cutting pieces for this one card.  The cutter files come in GSD, AI, KNK, WPC and SVG…a little something for everyone.

Now for the deets…the stamped flowers, stamped butterfly, dies and mail are from Papertrey.  The butterfly is a SU bigz die and the daisy is from Bosskut.  I used Smooch on the daisy and love the soft shimmer it gives.  I also used a Popkut flower from Bosskut and layered it with the Fleur Di Lis die from Spellbinders (inside).  The sentiment was stamped and cut out with more Spellbinders.  Thanks for stopping by!

I had some time to play this afternoon and so I combined two of my favorite things, butterflies and roses. I airbrushed the rose, attached it to the butterfly, then sprayed them both with Smooch.  The sparkle is soft and elegant.  The flower stamp and die are from Papertrey Ink, Larger Than Life, and the sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms and no longer available.

The butterfly is from Bosskut and is a part of their new Pop Kuts line.  It is available in AI, GSD, WPC and PDF format.  The beautiful rose is from Just Laury, Simple Spiral Rose, and is available in AI, GSD, KNK, WPC, SVG formats.

Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate new and familiar faces and a friendly smile!

CAD is over now, but here are two more samples I made using Shelly’s flower for Customer Appreciation Days (CAD) at Paperthreads.  For the first flower I used a stitching template (Quickutz), which is the metal circle you see, and stitched the flower and border with embroidery thread.  I kept the flower as the focal point and added silk ribbon as my finishing piece.

For this card I made a fabric flower and  used fabric bond (for iron ons).  I left the paper backing on and cut it with the Gazelle (I used the regular blade).  It cut beautifully.  I cut two more flowers, one being slightly larger, and crumpled the smaller one.  I put the smaller, crumpled flower under the fabric flower so it wouldn’t lay completely flat.  I love dimension in my projects and this was a good solution.  I used Nesties to cut the mat in the same fabric and added a few layers and feathers to complete the card.  Thanks for stopping by!

This weekend is CAD at Paperthreads and yesterday one of the challenges was to use vintage trim.  I didn’t have any on hand so I airbrushed some lace with Copic E31 to give it an aged look.  The heart is from Laury’s Lots of Hugs.  Laury’s files are available in AI, GSD, KNK, WPC, and SVG…compatible with all types of cutters.  The butterfly dies are from PTI and SU, and the buttons are PTI.  Thanks for looking!

Paperthreads is having their Customer Appreciation Days (CAD) going on this weekend.  This flower is a freebie from Shelly’s Art and is so versatile!  HERE is a link to her post where you can download the flower file in AI, KNK, GSD, SVG and WPC formats…a little something for everyone.  I used the Gazelle to cut mine and they cut beautifully.  I added two layers of seed beads and glitter (both by Martha Stewart) to create my flower.  The picture below is what I started with…lots of fun ways to create with this flower!  Thanks for stopping by!
