Two weeks in a row...I can't believe it!! I'm certainly honored to have my cards showCASed. Chrissie and Mandi...sending you a BIG Thank You! ♥♥ You made my day! ♥♥
I can't believe I've already finished three cards for this week's challenge at Less is More (which is to make at card using silhouettes). I might even get a couple of more finished! For this first card, I cut the silhouette of the three carolers with my Cameo. I cut a piece of white card stock with a curvy edge and layered it on top of the card base for my "snow". I used a Copics B0000 to highlight the mound of snow and behind the carolers. The carolers are pop dotted off the card and it looks really cool. I also added a touch of glitter to make the snow glisten. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
For this next card, I used a Papertrey Ink Christmas silhouette. Punched it out with a 1.75 inch circle punch. The background paper is actually a gold shimmery card stock from SU that I recently ordered. I wish you could see how shimmery it is, but I can't figure out how to photograph it and get that to show. I punched a 2 inch scalloped circle from the gold card stock to back the image. Then I layered it on a die cut from Papertrey Ink. I added the gold pen lines around the edges of the die with a gold Uniball pen. The sentiment was generated on the computer using text boxes so that I could make the background black, leaving my sentiment white. I also edged the sentiment with the gold pen. I also popped the background layer off the card. The black border on the gold is simply thin strips of black card stock that glued around the edges.
This next card was the result of me playing around with my Cameo. This is one of the cutting files I have, but from experience I knew that cutting all those tiny little lines would probably not work well as small as I needed it to be. SO....I figured out that I could turn the image black and print it on my laser printer!! How cool is that! I am loving my Cameo! I decided to add just a touch of pink because it just looks good to me...and it gave me the idea to add just a touch of bling to the little girl's hat. The sentiment on this card was also computer generated in my Silhouette program.
Now...just thought I share what else I've been up to. I have a long way to go before I'm any good at it, but I sure have had some fun playing with these snowflakes.
As you can see, my quilled snowflakes are a little wonky, so I'll have to work on that. It's really fun to put these together - but very difficult to photograph!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate your wonderful comments! Until next time...
