The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #3 Color Challenge!

 

Happy Saturday!

TCS#3 Graphic

(Additional neutral colors allowed are: black, white and kraft.)

We had some absolutely amazing entries for the last Cameo Spotlight Challenge – you all are so clever and creative!  So I know you’re going to love our next challenge, which is a color challenge!  Use the above graphic as your inspiration to create a card or tag and include the use of your Cameo or Silhouette SD in your design.

TCS#3 - Best Dad Color Challenge

I was inspired to create a masculine card using these color swatches.  I never seem to have enough cards for guys in my stash, so this was my opportunity to change that!  I downloaded the Borders – Diamonds cutting file from the Silhouette Online Store and sized it to fit an A2 card front.  I cut it out three times with my Cameo – once in the kraft colored image panel, once in a slate blue, and once using a sage green.  I inserted the blue diamonds into the kraft image panel, adhered the green diamonds with foam tape, and then adhered the whole image panel to the kraft card base with foam squares.  I love the dimension that the negative diamond cut adds when you back it with the cream layer.  And who doesn’t love argyle?!!  Right?!

PRODUCTS USED:

STAMPS:  Grads & Dads (The Craft’s Meow)
INK:  Black Dye (Memories/Hero Arts)
PAPER:  Blueberry, Caramel and Vanilla CS (American Crafts), and Spring Breeze (Bazzill Basics Paper)
OTHER: 
Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine (Silhouette America)
CUTTING FILE:

We’d love to see what you’d create using the color challenge graphic above!  If you’d like additional inspiration, you should totally click on through to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog to see what the other TCS Cast Members have cooked up for you!  Oh, and you can find all of the details and rules of playing along with us there, too!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’m off to meet up with my sister to pick out some carpet and tile and paint and bathroom fixtures and . . . oh my gosh – so many decisions to make for the new house!!  AACKKKK!!  Hope you have something more fun in store for your weekend!  LOL
