The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #2–Numbers!


TCS#2 Graphic


Can you believe that it’s already time for the next Cameo Spotlight Challenge?!  You all did such a great job on the first one, so I hope you finally have the swing of using your Silhouette or Cameo in your card designs to play along with us again this week!  This week’s challenge is to create a card or tag and include numbers in your design – you’ll need to incorporate the use of your Silhouette or Cameo in some aspect of the card or tag, as well.  Fun, right?!

TCS#2 - U R Gr8

My brain exploded with ideas when I saw the theme, but it nearly spun right off my neck when I thought about creating a “text message” card!!  LOL  I’m not a super progressive girl, but I loves me some technology, especially my beloved iPhone!  So, I studied the appearance of my iPhone chat app and went to town duplicating that look into my card.  I downloaded a word bubble cutting file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I resized it, drew a rectangle around it, and cut it out of some yummy bright green cardstock.  I adhered the negative of the word bubble to a white card base with dimensional tape.  Then I created a text message using the font called Dotum (90 pt.) and cut it out of gray cardstock.  I adhered the letters and numbers to the white card base with dimensional tape.  That’s it!!  How fun would this be to throw into your son or daughter’s school lunch sack – no doubt they would love it!


CUTTING FILES:  Three Thought Bubbles (Silhouette Online Store)
FONT:  Dotum 90 pt.
CARDSTOCK:  Cricket, White and Ash (American Crafts)

For all of the rules and details of this week’s Cameo Spotlight Challenge, as well as some amazing inspiration from the other TCS Cast Members and the InLinkz gadget to add YOUR project, please click through to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog.  I so hope you’ll play along with us!


That’s it for me today, kids!  As you read this post, I’ll most likely be hanging out with my sweet friend, and perhaps playing with my new Cameo that she brought with her – ACCKKKKK!!  I’m so excited!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – I hope you’re having a great weekend!
