Silhouette Scenes

Last month we used the new Silhouette Scenes stamps and matching Sweet Silhouettes dies in class. The stamps had caught my eye when I saw the sample cards in the catalogue - such vibrant colours teamed with the images stamped in black.

I decided to case some of those samples - I really liked them and hoped the ladies would too.
Below are the cards we made.
The first is cased from the catalogue. However, my 2nd pack of patterned paper didn’t arrive in time so I and some of the ladies made our own matching background with card and ink. If you compare it with the catalogue sample I think you’ll agree that we did a good job!

The tree die is just stunning and is worth taking the time to remove all the little pieces after die cutting.
Our second card uses the stitched rectangle dies in addition to the silhouette dies, plus we added some of the vibrant patterned paper from the suite (See a Silhouette DSP) and a little texture from the subtle embossing folder. This card is perfect for a couple, to celebrate an anniversary or event, or just to say “Hello”. The tiny raindrops are epoxy embellishments I saved from a previous catalogue (now retired) but were perfect! Finished with crinkled seam binding ribbon in crushed curry and sequins.

The third card features the young girl and one of the boys stargazing and are stamped onto whisper white which has been die cut with an oval from the stitched shape famelits. The patterned paper was perfect for this and the border on the left has texture made using an embossing folder (retired). Embossing in white makes the sentiment 'pop' on this card. A few sequins from my stash to embellish.

Our last card is different from the others, it makes use of the lovely flower die and lots of white space to create a crisp card. The base card is pear pizzaz, flower cetre coloured in crushed curry, seam binding ribbon as before. I masked off part of the sentiment which I then stamped onto vellum.

I really enjoyed making these cards and so love the vibrant, punchy colours of the patterned paper, though I only used a tiny piece of the more subtled sheets on here I'm looking forward to using the rest. I hope the ladies enjoyed making theirs too.
Until next time, happy crafting,
