Hello Everyone and here at MKC we have another great guest designer for you, but first let make

Jessica here from the Homespun Elegance Blog and I am super excited to be Guest Designing for Miss Kate Cuttables today! 
I used the Oh Snap File for this adorable card! To make it, I printed out 2 copies (in jpg format) of the file and hand cut around the pieces I wanted to make 3D using Foam Dots with one of them. With the other piece, I simply cut it to size to fit the Base Card with another layer of colored cardstock in between. I also stamped the Gram it saying into the quote, added some May Arts Ribbon and Sequins to finish it off! So remember! Even if you don't have a Machine you can use these absolutely adorable files!!
Now check out this CUTE one! 
I printed 2 copies of this image as well and Fussy Cut around the S'mores and the leaves. For the Leaves, I scored them down the middle to give them a little more definition and used Foam Dots to make the pieces stand out. 
I also included a little coordinating twine on this card. For the sentiment all I had to do was type it in a word document using a cute font and print it out. Cut around it and add a layer of colored card stock to help it stand out, and that's it! Seriously simple and SERIOUSLY CUTE wouldn't you say?
Now, for this project you will need some type of Iron on Transfer. Here I used the Avery Light Iron on Transfers. I printed out the Love You Tons file onto my Transfer Sheet and hand cut around it, getting as close to the image as I could without cutting into it! I also cut out the sentiment.
Make sure your surface (Onsie) is ironed and on a flat surface. Use a thin, clean dish towel to Iron on the transfer on High Heat and no Steam.
Let Cool completely before pulling off. If you have any edges of the transfer that are trying to pull away from the garment, simply put in the dryer on high for a few minutes.
I added some Hot Fix rhinestones to this one to flow with the hearts. Isn't this simply adorable! I made this for my niece Alyson. She had a little Baby girl not too long ago that I have yet to meet! They live in California, where I grew up. I can't wait to send it to them!
Now, I am known for putting a little something extra on the bums of onsies. I just can't help it I think it is so cute and it's really the only time you can get away with it! 
On the same transfer sheet I printed the image twice and cut out only the baby elephant and the hearts for the Bum of the Onsie. I think it completes it! 
What do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will stop by my blog for more inspiration with Miss Kate Cuttables!
