Beach Bum Silhouette Cameo Card

Standard

Beach Bum

I am so excited, my Silhouette Cameo arrived on Tuesday!  This is the first chance I have had to play with it and I gotta tell you, I am loving this thing!  It is everything I have been looking for in an electronic cutter and more.  It cuts very small, intricate designs beautifully and the Silhouette Studio software is intuitive and easy to use.  The first thing I wanted to try with my Cameo was to import a digital stamp and use the Print and Cut feature to create a die cut effect.  Today’s challenge on Splitcoaststampers is the Ways to Use It Challenge WT384 ~ Hit the Beach, so I did a quick Google Image search for beach digi and found this cute Beach Butt Digi on Leigh’s Paper Creations.  Isn’t it a hoot!

For my card, I started with a Green Galore card base and a yellow polka dot background paper from DCWV.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and mounted it with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals.  I printed the computer generated sentiment and triple matted it in Basic Black and the yellow background paper.  I cut the Memory Box Clouds in Whisper White and sponged the edges with Pool Party for this quick and easy card.  This was my first time using a digi stamp, I definitely see more digis in my future!
