The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #6–Halloween!


TCS#6 Graphic

Happy Saturday, Friends!


I’m back today to share the latest and greatest Cameo Spotlight Challenge, which is to create a Halloween-themed paper crafted project (we’ve changed the rules as to what can be submitted, so be sure and visit the Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog to find out what the new rule is – I think you’re going to be very happy!).  Be sure to use your Silhouette electronic die cutting machine to create at least one aspect of your project.

TCS#6 - Halloween Wishes

I had such a great time creating for this challenge!  I knew I wanted to create a spider web and use that googlie-eyed spider – isn’t he too cute for words?  I was having a hard time getting a clean cut spider web from card stock because the lines are so fragile.  Ultimately, I cut the spider web image out of vinyl and then adhered it to my card base.  I love that the web looks so bold and precise.  Both the web and the spider are cutting files that I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store.  I’ve listed them below.


STAMPS:  Ghostly Greetings (Hero Arts)
INK:  Black Dye (Hero Arts/Memories)
PAPER:  White Linen CS (Ellen Hutson Essentials), Orange CS (Hobby Lobby), Beetle Black cS (Bazzill Basics Paper)
OTHER:  Black Vinyl (Ora-Cal 631 – Paper Accents), Googlie Eyes (Michael’s)
CUTTING FILES:  Halloween Spider (Silhouette Online Store Design #21468) and Spider Web (Silhouette Online Store Design #2954)


We have a very special guest designer for this week’s challenge, as well.  Jocelyn Olson has designed a fabulous project that I know you’re going to love.  And, of course, the other Cameo Spotlight design team members have created incredible projects, as well – many have included free cutting files and detailed instructions as to how they created their cards.  Click on through to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog to see what they’ve cooked up for your viewing pleasure and inspiration!


That’s it for me today, friends.  I’ve got a big day of cropping with my girls planned today – loves me some girlie time!  Hope that you have some amazing plans for your weekend, too.  Thanks for stopping by – it means the world to me!

Thanks for the tip about the vinyl for the spider web. I too have had trouble cutting webs. Love the bold graphic look of the card!

Wow - the web does look amazing...the vinyl must be key (no paper schrapnel to pick off!). These googly eyes always make a spider look like a sweet wee guy (versus mean & furry!).
