Swing cards, baby!

Don't get me wrong, I love Stampin' Up.  I was about to buy the new Circle Card Thinlits Die when I discovered that I could make a swing card on my Silhouette Cameo.  Instead of spending 30 some dollars I simply spent 99 cents! YIPEE!  Check out what I made.

I used the retired Sail Away stamp on the outside and the sentiment "go confidently in the direction of your dreams" stamp on the inside.  This would make a nifty guy graduation card.

For this card I used the Giant Pumpkin stamp by Hero Arts that I picked up at Goodwill.  I stamped the pumpkin in Versamark on Only Orange cardstock.  Then I heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  Now here's the cool part - I painted with bleach and water to make the yellow parts of the pumpkin.  It looks awesome and really pops.  I have been using a lot of bleach lately as you'll see in my next post.  For the inside I bought a scallop circle for the Cameo and cut it out and glued it in.  I LOVE how easy and quick and CHEAP it is to get designs for the Cameo.  No cartridges to buy!  Have an awesome night  - Heidi
