Plastic is Fantastic ! City Crafter Challenge 297

Hello lovely ladies and gents.

 I’ve been playing around for ages now making shaker cards and using acetate so when I saw that City Crafter were having a challenge dedicated to Fantastic Plastic I knew I had to play along.



I love to make large cards I’m all about the size lol but most of the stamps I like are a bit on the small size so this is were my Cameo comes into play. With a bit of jiggery pokery I can with the aid of my scanner import the stamped image into my Cameo software and then enlarge the image to whatever size I fancy, which is what I did in this case. I converted the image to a cut file so the black top layer is card cut very nicely thank you  Cameo. A tad more jiggery pokery and I was able to colour between the black lines after I had removed the compound path. I printed this out onto acetate and placed the black card over the acetate , I popped it up with some foam to give dimension. There are some great sentiments with this stamp set but I just couldn’t bare to cover up those cute little faces.IMG_2636

Here’s another using different colours I’ve slightly offset the black layer to give a different effect.

Do pop over City Crafter  the DT have some amazing cards for our inspiration.

Take care

  3. Oh wow Marie, these are fantastic. Love those gorgeous faces and how clever are you to come up with the method of offsetting the black layer to give that slight white edge. You’re a genius my friend!

  4. I’m still not sure how you did this on your cameo … you’re obviously very technical with it … I’ve never even used the scanner mat yet! Lol! However, your finished result is breathtaking!! I LOVE it! Thanks so much for playing along at CCCB! Have a great weekend Marie!
