Can I just say, how freaking awesome is my Cameo? :D
I must admit, I haven't used it a huge amount since my lovely hubby bought it for me in November - I am still getting the hang of how to do various things with it (and I must admit to not spending as much time in the craft room as usual over the winter months! :lol:).
But it really is the coolest, cleverest darn thing and I really must use it more. Cos look what I did with it over the weekend:
I made my own shaped card base!! How awesome is that?! :D
The challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week is to make a circle card and I really wanted to have a go... but I don't have any circle card blanks and I don't have any dies big enough to cut a card blank in the BigShot so I decided to have a play with my Cameo. And by overlapping two scalloped circle shapes and welding them I was able to cut out a shaped card base. Am so impressed with myself! :lol:
I decorated my card with some gorgeous freebie papers that came with a craft magazine and added a butterfly and flourish (also cut with the Cameo) and some flowers - including a resin flower from a matching set that came with the pretty papers:
And for the image I used this adorable Alisa With Roses digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. Isn't she so sweet?
