The Reader


(I went overboard with the edge coloring but it grew on me)


Details:  The card measures approx. 5” by 6”.  The shaped card is from the Silhouette Store.  I used Neenah 80# Solar White card stock.  The image is by Saturated Canary called “Reader”.  I used Copic markers to color the skin.  And Promarkers for the rest of the image.  The shading was done using Tea Dye Distress Ink Pad.  And the glitter dots were created using Stickles, Platinum.  The sentiment is from the Internet and created using Paint Shop Pro.  And I added Glossy Accents to the glasses for effect.


Stop by the Cutters Creek Online Store for some awesome crafting accessories.  And if you have any questions about the products you can contact Kim Bush.

Thank you for stopping by, Fran

Masculine Card by Guest Designer Gloria

The Cutters Creek Design Team is excited to have Gloria Williams as our Guest Designer today!

We all know how hard masculine cards are to make, well Gloria makes it look easy with this great masculine card,  perfect for the upcoming Father's Day, or a man's birthday, or as Gloria has done, a thinking of you card.

Hello Everyone!  I am to pleased to be a guest designer for Cutter’s Creek.  I do believe this is my first time.  Thanks so much for having me here today!

I want to share this gate fold card with you.  It is not the traditional gate fold but one that I found on YouTube.   I would call this an off center gate fold.  Don’t you just love that YouTube?  Papers for the card are all from my stash.

To make this card start with a card base cut at 5 1/2" X 8 1/2". Score the base at 2 1/2"  and 6 3/4". Fold both scorelines toward the center of the card. Using a bone folder make sure you get a really good crease. This will give you a gate fold card with the left front panel being 2 1/2" wide and the right front panel being 1 3/4" which results in a slightly off center gate.

Next you can add your decorative panels to the card base. Your left panel is cut at 2 1/4" X 5 1/4" and the right panel is cut at 1 1/2" X 5 1/4". Mine are the brown card stock pieces.

The piece that goes on the front is cut at 3 X 4 3/4" for the base mat and 2 3/4" X 4 1/2" for the decorative mat. For my decorative mat, I stamped a piece of plain cardstock with a wood grain stamp and some Rich Cocoa memento ink. Adhere to the left panel of the card base by applying adhesive to the left side of the front mat only. Now it is time to embellish the card.

I cut my ship out of black card stock at 2" using the My World Cricut Cartridge. I cut the ship's helm using a die from My Favorite Things, (these are a Cutters Creek special order item, just ask). To finish off the card I added my sentiment.

Thanks you so much for letting me visit. If you would like to see more of my work, feel free to visit my blog.  Enjoy and God Bless!

Father's Day Card and Tie Box by Michele

I wanted to share with you a Father's Day Card and Tie Box I made for Father's Day that is next month. I got a new machine, Silhouette Cameo. I bought an SVG file on line and that file had the card and tie box along with 4 other files. The card  measure about 7x5" and the tie box is about 8x2x2". The paper line I worked with is called Little Sport by Heidi Larsen  and the tie box was just white and brown cardstock and the tie is the Double Dot Decaf by Bo Bunny.   To adhere some of the letter's and white diamond I used 2-way Glue Pen-Zig.

I also used Scotch Quick Dry to put the box together. To give the tie some dimension I used vera color Bark. Thank you for stopping by. If you like anything I used please visit CuttersCreek store. Still can not find what you want or need a special order contact Kim and she will help get what you need in a flash. Have a great week ahead.

Party Animal!!! by Deanna M

I have a fun birthday card for you today! The little owl is a print and cut image from the Silhouette store. (Yes, Kim can order you a Silhouette!).

The card base is white card stock cut and scored to make a 5" X 7" card base. I added a purple mat cut at 4 3/4" X 6 3/4". The patterned paper is from  my stash and is cut at 4 1/2" X 6 1/2".

After I print and cut the owl, I added a bunch of Stickles to his hat and stomach. Because, of course a party animal has to sparkle and shine!  I added my owl to the front of the card with some foam squares. Finally I stamped the sentiment some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
