I LOVE it when I can create beautiful cards for my Cricut and Cameo machines without having to purchase special stamps or images. This card was made with FREE dingbats (ok for commercial use) and free font from dafont.com (I have all the details in the info under the video.)
I hope you enjoy this video and it spurs you on to create your own beautiful cards!!
I am soooo in love with this DIY Silhouette project. And honestly, it is one DIY project that REALLY feel I can use year-round in my home.
As you watch the video you will see that I struggled a bit with the transfer tape, but, thankfully, it ended well. 🙂
I decorated my new Cameo 4 with this pretty vinyl. While it is htv vinyl, you KNOW I would NEVER heat apply anything to this machine so I just used double sided tape. I am glad I used this rather than permanent vinyl because I can change up the design whenever the mood strikes!! You can get the skin in the Library.
Skin for Cameo 4
Join me for (as my husband would say) a YABO (Yet another box opening)! In this video I do unbox the Cameo 4 as well as give you the listing of the NEW features!
I’m on a roll today!! Two videos!! I really wanted to get this one done as a few people asked for it!
Join this LIVE recorded video to see how to make really cute stickers that you can put on tins for gifts!
Here’s the thumbnail from the recording.
I am going to show how to make these images into svgs on YouTube LIVE today. Not sure of the time so please make sure you are subscribed to my channel AND CLICK the BELL so that you get alerted!
I will be using Silhouette Studio and creating these svgs for ANY machine….much like you can do in Inkscape but it is much easier to use Silhouette Studio (IMHO).
Below are the images we will be working on. What’s that? You say you don’t want to create these images??? Not to worry….what you learn in THIS class can be used on ANY image that you’d like (think DISNEY!)
So, please grab these images. Simply right click on the image and save to your computer so that you can work right along with me!!!
Create this stunning card in Silhouette Software with me! First Print then Cut both the image and the sentiment, then Foil using the Foil Quill from We R Memory Keepers.
I am absolutely thrilled with how my card turned out! Do you have the Foil Quill yet? You may want to consider it if you love cards like this one!!
Check BELOW the VIDEO for the link to the tree image I used. Also, watch for my tip on how to have perfect looking foil!
Yahoooooo, my Foil Quill arrived this morning and I am really excited to get going with it. Since a lot of you asked, I wanted to give you a bit of info that I’ve gotten from my research.
Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post where I do the LIVE unboxing!!!
The following materials can have foil applied to them easily:
- card stock non textured
- card stock textured
- cotton fabric
- satin ribbon
- thin fun foam
- faux leather
I also found that the following types of foil work well with the Foil Quill
- Contour creations
Anyhooo, I’m pretty excited to get mine. Grab yours here!! As I mentioned in the video, I got the smaller ‘set’ so that I could try it out and make sure that I liked how it worked. If you’d like to take a look at the larger set, click HERE.
I will be testing mine later today and documenting my results with video so stay tuned.
