Ink Happens!

This months ATC swap theme is "Ink Happens."  I thought about slinging some paint or even doing some doing some drippy goo, but I wanted something different. Something that no one would think of. So I decided to go with a tattoo approach, because face it Ink Happens! I found lots of great quotes about getting tattoo's that spoak to my heart, but most of them were to long to fit on a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 card and still have room for other stuff. Yes I always have to junk it up. That's just my style.  

I designed most of this ATC using my Silhouette Cameo. The background is stamped with Tim Holtz barbwire stamp in black. The tattoo heart is a print to cut feature on the Silhouette machine that I adjusted to the size I liked. If you haven't used the print to cut yet, what are you waiting for? It is super easy and it saves a lot of time. No more stamping an image, coloring it in and then cutting by hand. The tribal piece is also a Silhouette image that I streatched and then cut out of black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my August ATC card. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.

Every Candle has a Name.

  

Every year Harrisonville has a Relay for Life Walk to raise money for cancer research. The most touching and emotional part of the walk is the lighting of the luminaries. They shut all the lights off and line the track with eluminated luminaries that loved ones have created for survivors and those that have passed.

My luminary is dedicated to my Aunt Shirley that passed a few years ago to brain cancer. I wanted it to not only stand out in the daylight, but to also shine when lit. I used my amazing Cameo machine and cut her name out in vinyl and placed that on the front of the bag. On the inside I used the Cameo again and cut out lace doilies. I love the way the doilies give the bag a nice shadow when illuminated.

What is the Silhouette CAMEO?

The Silhouette CAMEO™ is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, isntead of printing, the CAMEO uses a small blade to cut your designs into a wide array of materials.

The Silhouette CAMEO™ is amazingly versatile. It can create intricate projects of all sizes form small (1/4" wide) to large (12" wide) and has an unlimited cutting length. It can cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric, and other materials. It operates with or without a cutting mat. When the blade is replaced by a pen, the CAMEO will sketch instead of cut. It can be controlled from a computer or an SD card. With the print and cut feature, the CAMEO also has the ability to cut out designs that have been printed on your home printer.
The CAMEO cuts designs created in the Silhouette Studio® software. This software is free and offers a wide variety of tools and functions to help create custom projects quickly and easily. The Silhouette Studio® software can also manipulate and cut fonts you already have - if a font is installed on your computer, you can use it with the CAMEO.
Designs and shapes can also be purchased ready-made through the Silhouette Online Store. There you will find thousands of designs by talented artists and well-known companies starting at just 99¢ each. Once purchased, designs and shapes are stored permanently in your library and can be used any time. With the Silhouette Online Store you only pay for the shapes you want - no need for expensive cartridges with the CAMEO.
