Day 8...sketch pens, partial cuts and VINYL!!

OK I know that everyone else mastered that crazy bar holder thingy with ease...NOT me! I could not move that baby for anything and after emailing SL support they suggested rubber gloves....IT WORKED I could finally  move that guide :) Earlier this week I cut my vinyl to fit the mat.....no fun.

Today I used white chipboard for a base, layered a doily stamp with brown ink and then used Claudine Hellmuth's Studio matte medium to glue paper doilies on top....after that I gave everything a coat of the matte medium dried, spritzed with pearlized antique linen distress ink......and then dried everything again! Finally I cut the vinyl letters and heart out of black ...loved the whole process!!





The sketch card was fun and I had to add a little pearlized water with pink distress ink mixed in and a soft tinting with my Copics...fast and flat for mailing!



The butterfly partial cut out was explained so well and the simple act of releasing the compound path, SIMPLIFY, break and then delete the point had me accomplishing what I thought was impossible..yipee!!



Sadly, this is the last day...see everyone in the next class:)

Text text and more text

I had to do something with these die cuts....they are running around all over my studio..lol!

I put some of them together and made a collage of my favorite quotes for my studio wall....love the creativity that my little Silhouette creates in me:)








Day 5..Jazzing up those die cuts!!!!

I used a clear Copic glitter pen to highlight some of the dies cuts and to others I added ribbons, button and whatever else I had  to dress these babies up!  I seriously could loose myself in die cuts and not make a dang thing with them :)







Day 4...Print and Cuts OMGoodness

Were they fun to put together or what! I have spent the last 3 days rummaging through my Digi stash to put together tags withmy favorite quotes and elements that I just brought into my Cameo and used trace to make print and cuts....this could be quite addictive :) Be prepared there are a lot of them!!












Day 3...vinyl LOVE

This was just the thing to dress up my Cameo!
