Hello Crafty Friends!
We have another super fun challenge to give you and your Silhouette Cameo a chance to “work out” together. This week’s Cameo Spotlight Challenge is to create a project using the colors in the above graphic. Easy sleezy, right?!
Our sponsor this week is very near and dear to my heart – Paper Smooches!! Kim Hughes is the brilliant genius behind Paper Smooches, and I’m lucky enough to call her my friend. Kim was kind enough to sponsor today’s challenge and not only shared some stamps with each of us on the design team, but she’s also offered up an amazing prize for this week’s challenge winner! But you’ll have to click on through to The Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog to find out what it is! Oh, and while you’re there, be sure and check out the other outstanding projects that my teammates have prepared for your inspiration. Thanks, Paper Smooches (and Kim!)!
Since Jackie was kind enough to change up the rules a bit to include projects other than cards and tags, I thought it’d be fun to create a sweet treat holder. How cute is that little owl? He was really easy to create. I downloaded the 3D Owl Totebox (by Lori Whitlock) from the Silhouette Online Store and cut out the box part from kraft cardstock. I then selected four different designer papers from the Oh Snap! 6 x 6 pad that I had picked up a few weeks ago – one for the owl’s body, and the other three for the owl’s feathers. Oh my goodness, that paper pad is full of some delicious colors and patterns!! I cut the eyes out of some light gray textured cardstock and the nose out of orange textured cardstock. Assembling this little cutie was super easy too – I just slapped some ScorTape on the tabs and folded it until the edges met up and sealed. I filled it with some Jelly Bellies and tied it together with some gingham ribbon. That’s it! Oh, and the sentiment is from the Paper Smooches set called Chubby Chums.
