Hey, everyone! Today is a great day for another challenge over at Cameo Creations. This week's challenge is to use your Silhouette electronic cutter (any model) to create a square shaped card using a digital stamp and buttons. This was my first time using a digi with my Cameo, and it was also my first time using the print and cut feature, so I was a little nervous about this one. It was easier than I thought it would be, though, and I think it turned out to be pretty cute. Here it is:
This cute little Sock Monkey Girl is a digital stamp from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I opened it in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition and colored it using the technique you can find in Monica's tutorial HERE. I chose to use some patterns from the Silhouette Online Store to color parts of the stamp, though, and I really like how she turned out. I also designed the layout of the card in Studio, filled the shapes with patterns, and used the print and cut feature to cut out those elements. Here's a list of all of the Silhouette Studio patterns/files I used:
Square Background Pattern: Dot Pattern by SEI
Circle Pattern: Happy Teal Floral Pattern by Lori Whitlock
Scalloped Border Cut File: Large Pinking Scalloped Border by Loni Stevens
Scalloped Border Pattern: Happy Stripe Pattern by Lori Whitlock
Monkey Polka Dot Pattern: Happy Dot by Lori Whitlock
Flower Petal Patterns: Happy Dot by Lori Whitlock, Dot Pattern by SEI, Happy Floral Pattern by Lori Whitlock, Happy Teal Dot by Lori Whitlock, Happy Stripe Pattern by Lori Whitlock, Yellow Dot by American Crafts
It's hard to tell from the photo, but I printed two little monkeys and used the second one to cut out the nose, belly, and bow. Then, I popped those parts up to add a little dimension to her. And, of course, that sweet sentiment came from Pink by Design's Enjoy the Journey Stamp Set. I added some ink and some buttons, and my card was all done! :)
I made sure to decorate the inside, too.
So, what are you waiting for? Get out your Silhouette and create a square card using a digi and buttons. I promise you...using a digi is not hard. Then, link it up at Cameo Creations by March 29, and you could win some digital stamps from our sponsor for this week: Bugaboo Digi Stamps.
I can't wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
