Cut on the Cameo

Here's a couple of cards, first was for my daughters 21st last weekend, and the second is for my hubby's birthday on Friday. 
Pearl card is lovely to use on the Cameo, but a pain in the bum to get a decent photo of..... lol

I'm really enjoying learning how to use the Cameo to make my own designs, just wish I had more time to spend on it.... lol.

ILPM's Challenge #151

Time for a new challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers where our theme is 'Layer It Up!', so lots of lovely layers for this one.  Our sponsor is Di's Digi's with a lovely prize of a $10 voucher to spend in their online store, lot's of lovely digi images to choose from there.

Here's my DT card.

I used a digi image from Saturated Canary.  I love these images but I do have a problem with them when printing out.  Quite a few of the images I have print out with tiny dots around them.  They look fine on the computer, till they come through the printer.  I used Chameleon glitter from Debbi Moore Designs for the sparker, the BP's are from a couple of paper packs, the pink from Andrea Janye and the spotty one from a Daisy & Dandelion pack.  The sentiment is a freebie by Netty at Netty's Cards, thanks Netty for being so generous with your freebies.  Flowers and leaves were cut with punches.

A closer look at the image, and the colours used.

Skin - Ivory, Blush, Dusky Pink
Hair & Eyes - Putty, Tan, Caramel, Burnt Sienna & Blue Pearl
Clothes - Muted Pink, Baby Pink & Light Fawn

ILPM's #150 - Tag It!

This weeks challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers has just began and our theme for this one is 'Tag It', so we need to either see a tag on your project or your project can be just a tag.  We have a brilliant new sponsor for this one, Polka Doodles with a fab prize of a CD with 100's of printable elements on it.

Here's my DT tag.

I got my AquaMarkers out for this one.  I cut the tag on my Cameo, scribbled with a couple of colours on my craft mat, spritzed it with a bit of water, and placed the tag in it to pick up some of the ink, added some flowers and a sentiment.  This can either be put on a gift or added as the topper on a card.

Snowdrops by Just Inklined

Time for my first DT card of the year, for Just Inklined.

This image is called Snowdrops which is available to buy and download HERE.  This image is also on the 'Best of Just Inklined' CD.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers.  I cut the base card on my Cameo and is a free file by Birds Cards.
I must say, I had the Silhouette SD at one time, and was very disappointed with it's range of cutting, only managing to get a clean cut on light weight card stock, and I have loads of heavier card,  so I sold it.  My lovely hubby bought me the Cameo for Christmas, and WOW, what a difference!  This card is Centura Pearl and it cut like a dream!

A closer look at the image.
The colours I used are -
Icicle, Marsh Green & Lime Zest.
