Better late than never

Hi my fellow bloggers, hope you are all well.  I am fine, some gorgeous sunshine to day to brighten up the spirits.  I did mean to post these card earlier but time just runs away with me these days.  They are the cards I made for a 70th birthday and I had downloaded a file for the Silhouette Cameo recently from Craftsuprint, the designer was Amanda Davis, so decided to give it a try.



8 x 8 card
Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Teal, California Blue for Numbers and Tattered Lace Dies in the corners and Spellbinders Rose die 
Roses and background I used Creative Expression Foundation Milk and Coconut card


The numbers I mounted on an 8 x 8 card rather than cut out card design supplied as I wanted a bigger card.  The lady chose the first one so I have a spare in my box.

Since getting the Silhouette Cameo I have trawled the Internet for ideas and files to download and found an amazing amount of free files to use.  That is where all my time is going, trawling the Internet and You Tube for even more ideas.  Time now to put all I have learnt into action and to stop playing.   My craft space is filled with bits of cut outs I have tried.  I am often amazed at the intricate patterns the Cameo can cut and often try just to make sure it can do what is advertised.  Result, YES it can.  I still love my dies and the Tattered lace ones are top of my list at the moment but Spellbinders are still in use as you can see from the photos.

OK then ladies and gents I won't bore you any more suffice to say I have my pennies saved to spend at the SECC Glasgow this weekend at the Hobbycrafts show and to pick up more ideas from the lovely exhibitors.  Have not made up my mind yet what day to go but Saturday is looking good. (If that is the case Patricia and Hazel I will send and email and see if you want to meet up for a wee chat)

Take care out there, I look forward to reading all your comments as this is what keeps me posting albeit not as often as I should.

  2. Oh my goodness Wilma, these are breathtaking. I thought long and hard about getting a Cameo, but decided against it just in case it was out of my depth. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx

    Hazel and I are going to SECC on Saturday with Elaine and another friend. We will be out in the long corridor from 12.45 for lunch, we usually eat in the car but slumming it this time and using the bus.

  10. Hi Wilma,
    simply stunningly superb creations. You have really mastered that Cameo, I am in awe of your ability to master a new cutting machine. Love these superb cards. Your roses are fab too. No wonder the lady chose the teal colour as it just shows the lovely cutouts better.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Hi Wilma I love your big 70th's. They're fab. Great colour combinations too.
    Enjoy the SECC, I'd love to be going too but it's hubby's birthday and that is the last thing he would want to do....which is such a shame as I'd really enjoy it!
    Look forwards to seeing what you purchase.
    Happy crafting, hugs

    Erika.

  12. Hi Wilma
    Don't know how I missed these. Too much time in work is curtailing my blog life lol.
    Your cards are absolutely stunning. Amazing what the Cameo can do. Was tempted by the Brother Scan and Cut but will wait until its a lot less in price.
    If you're in touch with Patricia I emailed her a discount email for Samuel Taylors at the show. I'm sure she will send you a copy if you would like. Its 10% off.
    Enjoy the show.

  14. Wilma sorry I looked at my dash board the other day but didn't have time to comment and of course it's taken me till now to get back to doing so. Your two cards are stunning love them. As Patricia has said we are at the show on Saturday would have loved to have gone today but can't get time off plus husband is just getting over a bad chest infection so wouldn't like to be away all day.
