Here’s a card using a silver glitter gel pen. I converted my Silhouette Studio file and imported it into KNK Studio and used the gel pen to draw the flourish. Using an exacto knife, I cut some of the rubber grip off of the gel pen to fit it into the blade holder of the KNK. It worked well with this pen, but when I tried it with the pink gel pen, it wobbled a bit and left a bad drawing. I will have to try and figure out how to perfect it as I have other colors I’d like to use.

Both hearts are Quickutz Nesting Hearts and the sentiment is from Winter Schminter (Whipper Snapper Designs). It was hard to get a good picture of the silver glitter gel pen but it really is subtle and so pretty in person. Pink silk embroidery thread was a nice added touch…and I’m done!

This card was made using a flourish heart and antique key from Silhouette and were cut using the Cameo. I cut two black keys and adhered them together, then sprayed them with Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze for some added texture. I think tying the bow took the longest, but all in all, it was a quick card. ­čÖé

My last card uses one of my favorite dies (ha, I have lots of favorites!), the branch die by Memory Box. I made this one for my husband as we’re celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary tomorrow. I can’t believe it’s been that long but can honestly say, he gets better with age. The hearts are an EK Success punch and the stamp is an anniversary set from PTI.

What I wanted was to use my Cameo with gel pens, however, I haven’t picked up a pen tool for it yet. My KNK doesn’t need a pen tool so that’s what I used. You simply put your pen/marker in where the blade holder would go and tighten it up. The flourish file is from Silhouette America and so I needed to do some converting before I was able to import it into KNK Studio. Once imported, it was a smooth ride. It looked pretty good the first pass but I did a second pass to see if the white would be crisper…and it was.

The flower file is also from Silhouette America and that I did use the Cameo to cut. I cut two different sizes, attached them with a dimensional, and added some pearls to complete my card. I picked up some new glitter gel pens and can’t wait to give them a try too. Thanks for stopping by!


This was made for the May KNK Swap over at Paperthreads. ┬áI saw a YouTube video where someone made this by hand and decided to make a cut file using my Klic n Kut. ┬áThe tag book was very easy to make and is perfect for journaling those memorable moments or adding photos. ┬áThe owl and frame on the cover are both from Lettering Delights, Sweet Nothings and Banner Day, and Labels 1 (Spellbinders) in the center. ┬áThe swirly flourish is from Shelly’s Art, Flourish Set (part of the quarterly membership for May) and daisies are K&Co stickers. ┬áThanks for stopping by!
