June post – a new technique – Happy Father’s Day

Welcome!  This month’s theme was to do a new technique… so I tried something new..
I had seen some cute fathers day stamps from Jaded Blossom http://jadedblossomstamps.com/ and wanted to order them…. so in looking at their stuff I found this cute remote from http://svgcuttingfiles.com/ for a remote control to cut with my Cameo.
I bought the stamp set & the cut shape & proceeded to do for fathers day.

Here’s the end result:

So this was a new technique for me – buying an SVG file and cutting it with my Cameo.  Also making the candy wrappers was new…

It did take me a little bit to figure out how to get it to size right, and I did have some issues with my Cameo (realized I had too much paper jammed into the blade housing so I had to clean my blade to get it to work properly again).

I realize I need to get some better adhesive as they came un-stuck and had to re-stick them all.  I also made all of the remote buttons with pop dots – so that was very time intensive – but I love how it turned out & my dad thought it was great…. so I say it’s a win (plus I ate most of the leftover candy :))

Happy Father’s Day dad!  Thanks for being so great!
