“Clearance”- I love it!


The Silhouette store has had a sale going on for the last couple of weeks. There were several designs I liked, and the price was right- $.50! 

I read the official Silhouette blog and was challenged  to really use those designs, so I came up with several cards.

For the card at the top I used the diamond mesh and the the small scallop border.  I double cut the mesh (I find this works best for most of the intricate designs) using white cardstock, then applied red and green distress inks.

The green background on the above card is called” stacked lines ” . I applied green distress ink, leaving a bonus background which I used on the nest card, trimmed it down a bit, and then used the holes like cross stitch paper (left hand side of the card).  Quirky but fun.

Yes, this is the stenciled paper from the card I made above.

This last card sports the flower that was on sale.  I love the Art Deco feel.

Try to make this week another one of those where you use an unloved stamp, stencil, or die cut in a new and  usual way, then send me a picture!
