Oopsie my bad!



Hello there bloggers!  Today starts a new challenge over at the Cameo Creations Challenge blog and the theme is patterned paper - so go ahead and whip out your favorite pattern (or patterns) anywhere on your project and link up with us.  Since I am not very good at combining patterns for the most part, my project contains 3 different patterns from the Silhouette Store onto 3 different cards.  As always, this project is designed using the Silhouette Studio, images printed on my faithful home printer and cut with the Cameo.

The easel cards stand at 3.540 x 5.345 inches when folded up.  The shape of the card is based on one of the set of 12 tags by PPbN Designs (Design ID #44045).  I used the offset and the weld features on the Silhouette Studio to create all the coordinating layers for the card to create the easel effect.  For the images, I used pre-colored (cuz I seriously stink at coloring ;) ) digis from Scrapper's Delights Store - I used to do Guest Design Team work on Janice's blog and still loooove her images. 

Below is a screen shot of the images in the Silhouette Studio.  The digis were in png format which means they have a clear background and so they're very easy to size them to fit your project.  The sentiments were created using the Cartoon font from my library.

 
after printing from my home printer, I load the page
(yes, you can use a Cricut mat on the Cameo)
onto the Cameo - the 3 registration marks will
guide the machine where to cut. 
 
after the cut

I used the offset feature of the Sil Studio to create  mats for the images, then flood filled each with the patterns purchased from the Silhouette Store (from top to bottom, candy cane grunge, blue diamond snowflake, and black stripe, respectively).  I let the Silhouette Studio faux stitch the mats for me. 


And here are some close-ups of the finished project, with some flower embellishments. 

 
 
 
I'm bound to forget someone's birthday so at least I'll have a card to attach to a late gift ;).  For the inside sentiments, I used the Cartoon, Horseshoes and Lemonade, and Cajun Boogie fonts. 
 

 
 Thanks so much for looking and I look forward to seeing what you link up with us at the CCC blog.

My Cameo is on its way and I can't wait. I'll be looking to you and several others who have posted great creations with it. Think I'll be needing all the help I can get. TFS - this was a terrific demo of what the Cameo can do.

What do you mean you're not great at combining patterns? You are really, really good. I love these sassy little cards. Great job Melody!
