Your Thoughtfulness Warms My Heart

I am loving my new Cameo! I have learned (through the help of many YouTube videos) how to create shadows for stamped images, how to weld images or letters to a shape, how to create a custom sized sentiment mat that fits the individual stamped sentiment perfectly... oh the magic. :)

  • Little girl from Cameo "Print and Cut" feature. Remember her? She printed in the black outline only. I cut her out with the Cameo. Then I colored her with BICs, Le Plumes, and the skin tone Copic marker. Her cheeks were chalked in. The dots on her flower and skirt were created with a white gel pen.
  • CARDZ TV STAMPS "Heartfelt Wishes" for the sentiment stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • The sentiment matting "label" came from the free cuts included with the Silhouette purchase. I stamped the sentiment and scanned it in to the computer and loaded it into the Silhouette software. Then I grabbed that free label and custom fit it around the stamped image including a shadow. Send to Silhouette. Cut. Voila! Once I had the label and shadow cut out, I simply stamped my sentiment on it. Perfect fit!
Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis
