The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #5–Color Challenge!


Happy Saturday, Peeps!

TCS#5 Graphic

I’m up to my eyeballs in packing tape and boxes as I type this, so I won’t bore you with a bunch of blah, blah, blah today.  But I wanted to pop in and let you know that there’s a brand spankin’ new Cameo Spotlight Challenge today, and we’d love for you to play along!  This week’s challenge is a color challenge, so all you need to do is create a CARD OR TAG using the above color graphic as your inspiration, and you must include at least one element in your card or tag that is created using any Silhouette electronic die cutting machine (i.e., Silhouette Cameo or SD).  Easy peasy, especially considering the time of year, right?!

TCS#5 - Incredibly Grateful Color

I created this super simple chevron pattern using my Silhouette Cameo and the 6 Borders Cutting File that I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store.  I simply sized it in Silhouette Studio and then copied and pasted it multiple times to create the pattern.  I drew a rectangle around the chevrons so that the chevrons would be centered on the card front.  I then cut out that card front from white card stock.  I repeated this process three more times using the three different colors contained in the challenge graphic.  I adhered each colored chevron border to the card base with my glue pen, stamped the sentiment, and then popped the card front up with foam tape.  I love the pops of color, don’t you?


STAMPS:  Handwritten Sentiments (Simon Says Stamps)
INK:  Black Dye (Memories/Hero Arts)
PAPER:  White Linen CS (Ellen Hutson Essentials), Yam and Bazzill Yellow CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Orange CS (Hobby Lobby)
CUTTING FILE:  6 Borders (Silhouette Online Store Design #27671)

I’d love to stay and chat, but I really must get back to my packing and moving.  I hope you’ll pop on over to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog for all the details of the challenge, information about an amazing prize from our sponsor, Avery Elle Stamps, as well as some incredible samples that my other design team members have created for your inspiration and viewing pleasure.


Thanks for stopping by – I hope you have a great weekend!
