I hope you are well. It is very, very cold and wet in Sunny SA and I feel like heading straight back to bed BUT places to go, people to see and things to do. Today I've got some eye candy to show.
When I buy something, I try to use it to save on something else. Here is what I made to save on embellishments for my projects:
I've used my Silhouette to "cut and print" the images and background. As I'm new to Sihouetteland I stumbled upon the "offset" button by chance. This is the most wonderful function!!! It outlines your image and you can even choose how big the outline must be. Here you can see how I did a fuzzy cut around images by using the "offset" button. Just remember to "no cut" the initial image!
I do like the little bit of white around my images - just makes them pop. Next week I'll show you how I did the Kitty Cats - I've done them from a stamp (not so DUMMY anymore!) and they actually cut much nicer on the offset line.
Back to my dimensional embellishments. For my background image I moved the "offset outline", filled it with color and did the "print and cut" again. In between the two layers I've got pop dots to give the needed dimension. I do get super excited when I think about everything I can do with this!
Here you can see a close-up of the sewing machine:
And, as always I packed some to give away:
That's it. Super easy, affordable dimensional embellishments! I'm off to meet the people, see the places and do the "things". Thanks for looking at my blog today. I'm having a super, dooper blog month - all thanks to you. If you need more info on how I did my DUMMY projects - let me know in the comments and I'll gladly help.
Have a great weekend and please come back to play.
