My New Obsession

I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo, supposedly so I could create a vinyl wall mural for my soon-to-be-born first grandchild's nursery.  Now I've found I can't stop!  I love that I can create my own designs and cut vinyl or cardstock.  I recently learned the cut and print feature, so I have piles of cute cut-outs on my stamping desk.  And then I decided to try pairing the Cameo with my other obsession er, hobby, Stampin' Up.  This card is the result.  I stamped the flowers and leaf, then scanned them, brought them into the Sil software and traced them, then printed a whole sheet.  I colored everything with Copic markers (OK, OK - so I have THREE obsessions!), and sent it through the Cameo.  SO MUCH FASTER and EASIER than cutting them all out with tiny scissors.  I used a file from the Sil store to cut the opening in the mat, and finished up the card with a traditionally stamped sentiment.
