This week on Silhouette Online Store

Hi there!
Thought I'd share a bit more detail about the Quietfire cards that are on the Silhouette store this week.

Since this funky pointed pen lettering is all the rage, here is a Print & Cut card using just that style! This is call just for you card.

This is a layered card that has all the cutting shapes, including the cardbase.  There is an extra circle included that isn't shown on the photo which can additionally be matted with the background frame. The mats are only 1/16" larger, so there isn't a lot of room for misplacing the shape, but it gives is such a classy accent that it's hard to resist making small borders. The possibilities for colour combinations are endless, but for this card I used Distress cardstock as the base and Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings for the frame.  All pieces were cut with the Silhouette Cameo.

The next one is coffee or tea card:
The shape was inspired by a Walnut Hollow sign and a project I did for Father's Day which you can see here.

This card was made using those exquisite Kanban paper which you can find on the Quietfire site here.  This is quite thick cardstock.  I cut it at setting 7, but I think you could double-cut at setting 5. The letters are cut from Recollections cardstock at setting 3 and the steam and cup base is from good old Staples 65# white cardstock, also setting 3.  You can just use one word or the other on this card by enlarging it to fit the panel.  The white background for the cup may be slightly offset as a dropshadow.  I used a Pop Dot to raise the cup and steam to give the card some dimension.

And last, but not least and because you can never have enough butterflies, here is a calligraphic butterfly placecard.  The wings drop down into the body of the place card and there is a matted panel for lettering a name.  It's hard to see on the online store, but there is a small cut out butterfly in the top panel.

This card is cut from Recollection cardstock at setting 3 and the decorative paper is Bo Bunny Little Miss, also cut at setting 3. Be a bit careful when you pull this card off the cutting mat!  Sometimes it's hard to know which part is suppose to stay and which part is suppose to come off!
I hope you enjoy these new designs.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Suzanne- these are all great designs! I have to tell you my favourite is the butterfly card. I'll use them all, but that one will be first! Thanks for the great samples here.
