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.
