Feb. Farm Fresh Challenge – 3D

farmfreshchallenge

Hey all! It’s Feb 1, that means its time to start a new Farm Fresh Challenge on The Greeting Farm Blog!

The challenge for this month is 3D, and this is so out of my comfort zone!!! But I did come up with something for you all!

TGF - Carnival wm.jpg

I coloured up SSSC no. 25 – Carnival  with my copic markers a while ago, and thought this was the perfect little project for it!

I broke out my Cameo and cut a square pillow box and all the pattern paper layers with the file, once it was all cut out I inked up all the pattern papers and then glued them onto the pillowbox, adding my image, some chipboard and wild orchid craft flowers and this little box was done!

I can’t want to see what you create this month!

Just a simple Christmas.

DSC_0134

Hey everyone! Jess here again, have you been looking at the cards for the past few days! It is astounding how talented these wonderful people are.

So while I was planning out my cards for this series, I decided that not everything that you cut on your machine has to be a detailed cut, sometimes you can cut something as simple as the bottom piece for this card, just a simple half circle cut at the bottom. Honestly, unless you are cutting chipboard, or something of that nature, you can do all of your die cutting with an electronic die cutter.

So this card is rather simple, on top of the piece I cut on the cameo, I attached a green polka dot strip, and then took a piece of white cardstock that I punched with a Martha Stewart punch (sorry the name of the punch escapes me at the moment). Then I tied some chocolate brown bakers twine around that.

Then I stamped the Season’s Greeting sentiment from my go to Hero Art’s stamp set, matted that on patterned paper then added a white banner behind it, added some faux stitching around the bottom panel and put it all on a standard size, top folding card base.

That’s it for today’s card.

Yuletide Blessings by Kay Roussel

Hi There Its Kathleen from Morgan’s Fancies here with my contribution to the October Holiday Cards hosted by the lovely Jessie Banks.

I have acquired the Silhouette Cameo this year and have been in love with it and want to thank Jess for the inspiration for using this wonderful machine in my card making efforts.

This card is built upon a white cardstock 6 x 6 card base. All files were either free files from a wonderful designer named Penny Duncan, her site is http://pennyduncancreations.blogspot.com or were created by yours truly.

Here is the material list I used:

  • DCWV: The Christmas Stack 12 x 12 pad
  • Darice Core’dinations: Cardstock in Golden Pearl
  • My Mind’s Eye: Lost & Found Christmas 6 x 6 pad
  • Momenta Textured Cardstock 6 x 6 pad
  • American Crafts Cardstock
  • Various Cardstock scraps from my stash

I used a label cut file from Penny Duncan and altered it to fit my needs for this card. I then offset it twice to get the resulting two mats. The font used for the sentiment is called British Outline Masculine.

For the Fireplace I used Google to find a clip art picture and traced it in the Studio software. I then did two internal offsets to get the other layers.

For the Yule log, candles and flora I again used Google to find reference photos and drew out the log, candles, leaves and shapes. I added with fine line markers the texture lines on the log and leaves and used Bazzinks! Squares to outline it all. The candles are actually two layers. One white and one yellow I just snipped the white flame parts off and glued it down to the yellow. To make the flames stand out I also inked them lightly with Memento Ink in Morocco.

Once assembled the sentiment, fireplace and Yule Log were mounted on the Golden Pearl cardstock and popped up on some pop dots from my stash.

Inside of the card has a few layers from a Shapely cut file from Penny Duncan and printed a lovely poem about Yuletide I found while doing some picture reference researching for this project. This was printed using the sketch function of the Cameo and the font used was Black Chancery.

Thanks for checking out October Holiday Cards and stay tuned for more great cardmakers and ideas as the month continues.

Hey everyone, did you see yesterday guest post.. if you didn’t you should really go back and look at it! Today I am back and this card could be a cop out… lol. But I really like it anyway. I used some paper out of my scrap bin and stuck it through my cameo to cut square mats (What can I say my creativity was a no show this day cut me a break. Then when I didnt like the square edges I rounded them with my 1/2″ corner chomeer from We R Memory Keepers.

I used my Tim Holts Distress Paint in Picket Fence to white wash the Scraptastic woodveneers. The sentiment is stamped in Archival ink the colour is Potting Soil, and the Sentiment is from my trusty Hero Arts Christmas stamp. I finished it all off with some of my May Arts Natural jute twine.

A Holiday Hello

DSC_0056

 

Welcome everyone to day 3 of this Christmas Marathon on my blog. Did you see Susan’s card yesterday!!! Wow she did amazing. This card is ever so simple, I started by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut a snowflake from an Echo Park Snowflake set (Design ID# 51859), I then cut off some of the bottom whisps just to make it slightly more simple, finished these little snowflakes off by putting 2 coats of Hero Arts silver embossing powder.

The white cardbase and layers are from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock, the red layers of cardstock I am not 100% sure where it is from but I would guess it is a Bazzil Cardshoppe Cardstock. The silver and cream patterned paper as well as the stripes behind the sentiment is from the SSS Christmas card kit from last year and I can not remember who it was from as it was in my scrap bin. The shape behind the sentiment is a Spellbinders Die from my stash, unfortunately I have misplaced the packaging to it and can not remember what set it is from. The stamp is from a SSS Set called Holiday Hellos (SS101365), the sequins and small pearls are from my stash.
