CCMC297- A Sketch Challenge

Good morning friends. I have been meaning to get more blog posts up but just don't seem to be finding the time to get it done. I have really been focusing on learning more about my Silhouette Cameo and My Digital Studio. I never realized just how fun working with those two can be. I figured out how to buy stamps in MDS, color them in, import it in to my Silhouette Studio program, print it and then cut it out. I didn't have to have an actual stamp set or a framelit to cut it out. Needless to say, I was on cloud 9 when it all worked just like I wanted it to!

I'm going to do a small tutorial here in a few days. I want to learn how to make videos and since I don't like my voice on camera it should be a fun experience. I've heard some frustrating stories on how to edit videos so I'm assuming this will be a learning process all around.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Create with Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge. The DSP that you see on the card was made using our Watercolor Wonder paper in MDS and then printed and cut via my Cameo. It looks just like the paper does but now I have it forever to use!

The sketch is a simple one and that worked for me.


I sometimes think that the simplest of sketches can sometimes be the most challenging. I tend to want to put a lot of my cards so thinking outside the box can make me a little nutty. I think I did good with this one though :)



Can you tell that this was made digitally and then printed out on white paper? If so, just humor me and tell me no. Just kidding. Okay, maybe kidding a little. I am very happy with it and can't wait to try more. I do love our Word Bubble stamp set and dies. They are just perfect for any project! 

I am off to get my boys ready for school and then head to my women's bible study. We haven't seen each other in 2 weeks so I am ready for adult girl time. Hope you have a fabulous day! 

Happy Stampin, 

Angel

  1. I love the color combinations you used on your card and the word bubble really looks great! I'm so impressed that you made your own DSP, and no, it doesn't look like it was made digitally! How cool to use an e-cutter... that's something I'm thinking about too. Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary this week!
