Well, Did You See Any Of Them ….?

OK – Did you watch the program?  Did you spot any of the cards I showed you in my blog post on Sunday (click – here – to see them if you haven’t looked before) anywhere on the set of the Create & Craft program “Cards with Silhouette CAMEO” this afternoon?

I spotted number 1 from the first row of the last post near the centre of the top shelf of the bookcase.  I also spotted some I’ve got to show you in this post. I was quite surprised that so many of them were to be seen really, but it was nice that they did a pan of the bookcase to see them more clearly.  I was bobbing up and down and from side to side a bit and telling Dean on the telly to move his head a bit so I could have a closer look – LOL!  I should have sent in an E-mail to ask him to move, shouldn’t I?!  I’ll have to have a closer look when I re-play the recording sometime, and pause when they are looking at the cards to see if I can spot any more.

You’ll probably have noticed that I tried to make an assortment of cards of various complexity as samples.  The CraftROBO and Cameo cutting machines are very versatile, being able to cut things from basic shapes such as an oblong mat for layering, to a seriously intricate design, and I wanted to show this versatility amongst my samples.

Time now for my second batch of samples for you to take a look at.  Several of these were also visible during the program:

1Scalloped Arch Layers SS - card04  21st Birthday Teddy - card02  3Golden 50th Wedding - card03.jpg  4Golden 50th Wedding - card05 b

  1. Scalloped Arch (scalloped Arch.studio) – This can be made up as a wedding arch, perhaps in colours to match the theme chosen by the happy couple for their wedding, but it could also be made up as an anniversary card – it looks stunning made up in gold mirror, textured, and vellum, as a Golden Wedding Anniversary card (Base card – hammered effect white card.  Arch cut from two tones of Hunkydory card. Embellished with peel-offs, ribbon bow, gems on wire branches and flowers punched from Centura Pearl Snow White card, plus sticky back gems.
  2. 1st Birthday Teddy (1st Birthday Teddy.studio) – The base card, with its intricate lattice cutting around the central teddy is all cut out using the file provided.  There’s also a stand alone little teddy piece for you to cut out of whatever colour you want.  I cut mine out of dark silk art card-stock, but I could have made him lighter and drawn on eyes, nose, etc.(Card and teddy cut from Hunkydory cardstock; Panel white glitter card put behind.)
  3. Golden Wedding Anniversary Card (5 & 6.studio; 10.studio; Corners Swirly.studio; Fancy scalloped shape.studio) – You’ll notice that I’ve used several files off the CD-ROM to make this card.  I’ve even used a single layer from the Fancy scalloped shape file that I used to make the last card in my previous post.  Two of the other layers were placed inside, and offset, for the greeting to be put on. (Base card and shaped panel from Centura Pearl card; Swirly corners and some layers of the 5 and 0 from linen textured gold card; largest panel from satin board, vellum used for other number layers and to punch out flowers for decoration which had a gem put in the centre to cover where the glue was.  Peeloffs used around the outside of the card front.)
  4. Closeup of one of the numbers and corner swirls on the front of the previous card.

  1. Frilly Frame (Frilly fRAME.studio) – I quite like red and black together and so made this large A4 card in these colours (This was by way of an experimentation.  Put a quickie glue pen in the pen holder, and put it to “write” the design and then added ultra fine crystal glitter – only problem was where the two black “holding” rollers went through the fresh glue, but it didn’t transfer too much and using a brush to brush off the line after glittering as it wasn’t attached so well.  Distressed the edge and put peel-offs in the centre before attaching to a black base card over a red ribbon I’d wrapped around.)
  2. Christmas Greeting Plaque (Christmas 1 SS.studio) – This is made up as a wall plaque, rather than as a card.  The wording is “May the wonder that is Christmas touch the child within your heart”. (Design cut out of black vinyl and transferred using transfer tape to an acetate sheet.  Glue put behind and some gilding flakes added (Won’t use glue again as when I look closely I can see brush marks from glue pen broad head, so I think one of those sheets with glue both sides would be better in retrospect).  Attached to mirror board using brads and then attached to black backing card.)
  3. Decoration for the Christmas Tree (Decoration 1.studio) – When you consider the price of Christmas decorations these days, to be able to make your own lovely ones like this out of one sheet of card, some glitter and glue is great.  And any colour of card or glitter could be used to match your Christmas colour theme, or make them in multiple colours.  (Cut out of Satin board, covered in glue and dipped into glitter.  Loop of decorative string at top.)

The ones I spotted on the show that I’m showing you in this post were number 1 in the first row and numbers 1 and 2 in the second row.
