Cameo Silhouette - New home card

Hello Friends,

I'm coming out of my little Cancerian shell, which I had to retreat to over the last couple of weeks!  Sometimes "life" affects me and I disappear under my little protective shell!  You can't change me, I have been trying for the last 24 years to change myself, but it is impossible at times and I just have to go with it and hide for a little while!

Today though, I signed up for the next Online Card Class, it's called "Summer Card Camp 2", which doesn't actually start until 8th July but there are a couple of pre-class challenges before we begin and it was enough to pull me out from under my little shell and get me back to my "happy normal self" - lol !!!  The pre-class challenge for this week is a colour combo and it is just what I needed to kick me into action to make a card, which should have been made at least a week ago!

Here is my card.......

We were not given any names of colours just spots of colour.  My interpretation of those colours were Pool Party, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Basic Grey - Stampin' Up colours!  There was an additional lighter coloured grey, but I didn't have a lighter grey so left it out.

I designed the whole card in the Silhouette Software and cut out the bits with my Silhouette Cameo, the clouds are from a Stampin' Up embossing folder and the little block of flats is a wooden die cut.

I've got some more cards to make and I might well use that colour combination again, whilst all the packs are out on my desk ;)!

Hopefully, I'll be back to crafting again this week, so should have a few more cards to share.

Why not sign up for the Online Card Class yourself, we all have great fun over there!

Wishing you all a happy crafty week.



  1. Love your shaped card and all the diferent textures you used. Nice job!

  2. Good idea to use unusual shapes. We often get tied into our rectangles.

  3. Love so much about this card--the shape, the texture, and the theme! Also love the shadow the clouds are making in your photo. Excellent card!!

  4. So glad you came out of your "shell" and created such a beautiful card! I'll see you in class!
