Trim the Tree

Hi Gazelle Lovers!

For the last two years or so, my daughters and I make ornaments for the Christmas tree. It allows us to spend time together and it keeps them busy for a while. This year, I wanted to try my hand at cutting felt with the Gazelle! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed!

When I saw the Moose File, I HAD to use it for this year’s ornament! The file has several layers to it, but I only used two of the layers.  To cut the felt, I used a small amount of Stiffy stabilizer (the more you use, the stiffer the felt will become). Once the felt was dry, I cut it out on my Gazelle using a deep cut blade, force of 6 and a multi-cut of 3. It cut with no problem at all using these settings. I only had brown and white felt so I colored the face with a glimmer spray. I also used googly eyes…so cute! The nose of the Moose was cut with the left over felt when I cut the antlers.

The ornament is light, but I used an eyelet to give the ribbon a little more support. Since the googly eyes have lashes, I made the Moose a girl by adding a bow.  That’s it!

I hope you all enjoyed today’s project! Check out for files and inspiration! Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~

Happy Birthday

Hi All!

My friend is having a birthday soon and when I saw the Turkey file, I could not resist! I knew I had to use it for his card! Isn’t it the cutest turkey ever?

Although the turkey is adorable, it can still be used for masculine projects! I decided to use the embossing tool instead of cutting the layers of the Turkey. Didn’t it turn out great? When you emboss, remember to mirror your image. I put the foil face down so the debossing was on the top. You must be very careful when lifting the foil or you may end up with unwanted creases and you can ruin your embossed images (if you are using foil).

The sentiment was stamped and then (wet) embossed. For the corners, I used a corner punch. I like this particular punch for masculine projects for some reason. To man the card up a little more, I added brads to the corners.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Don’t forget to go to for your embossing tool and embossing mat. I know you will enjoy using them as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~
* You can emboss on paper, cardstock, aluminum and more; adjust your force depending on the material you are embossing.*

Falling Leaves

Hello Everyone,

Kenya here to share a fun fall card with all of you! The leaves were cut on my BossKut Gazelle using the files that are in the Fun Time library. They were colored using various sprays. Once they dried, I took an embossing tool to make the veins. The daisy was stamped, colored with Copic Markers (can be purchased at and fussy cut. It was layered on top of the Butterfly Doily which was colored with distress inks. For fillers, I fussy cut some of the images from the pattern paper.

To continue with the fall rustic look, I wrapped hemp cord around the mat and added my sentiment. The leaf is from my stash.

I hope you try out this fun card! Don’t forget to check out the images that come shipped with your BossKut Gazelle! Stop by for files, inspiration and supplies. Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~
