Add A Little Dazzle Diva Challenge #46

#46Hi! It’s a two post Wednesday. For information on the technique challenge from Make The Day Special- please scroll down to the previous post.

Welcome to another week of Dazzling Diva Challenge. This time Autumn/Fall is the theme. I decided to give my Silhouette Cameo a testing on how it coped with Add A Little Dazzle’s metal sheets. It required a little bit of trial and error- initially not cutting at all and then I realise it was in fact user error as I hadn’t inserted the blade properly!!

This is what I created- not my most favourite card- but a great start to seeing how far (& how thinly) I can push/cut the metal and how it cuts
I’ve created this project solely with my Silhouette Cameo. I’ve still a couple more experiments with it before I dedicate a whole post to cutting metal sheets with the Cameo- but with a little extra cutting on a couple of points, it fared amazingly well. I wasn’t sure that the Cameo would handle it, but did surprisingly well! I’ve used Golden Glimmer, Outrageously Orange, Wondrous White & Burnished Bronze. Click on the metal pic to take you to the metal page

    How exciting you can cut the metal using your SC, i have cut metal sheets with my Pazzle Inspiration but it tends to blunt the blade very quickly so will be interested to know if you have the same issue.

    Gorgeous shapes and love your card 🙂 xxx

    WOW! Gorgeousness alert. I’ll say you Cameo did splendidly, especially with the dimension you’ve added. Card is stellar.

    Lovely! I would never have thought to try these sheets with the cameo, but it looks great!

    Those pumpkins are just divine in the metal, Keren! And I love the metal sentiment! You are so making me want a Silhouette!

    Wonderful CAS card – perfect metal touches! Very cool that you can cut the metal with your die cut machine.
