It's been some time since I made a card, so I thought I would make one to celebrate my family' new home. Also, the real for reason I made this card is my friend challenging me to make a card for Stamping 411 and Pals Paper Arts, and with this card I killed two birds with one stone. Enjoy!
I know it's not hard to figure where I got the inspiration for this card (cover of the 2009-2010 SU catalogue). I haven't purchased anything from the new catalogue yet, so I used what I had to develop my card. The only things that are non SU: Adirondack Acrylic Paint and one little flower that's in-between the two felt flowers.
Also, I used my specially designed blow pen to make the splatter, and I must say it's works much better than the spritzer tool. I have tried the spritzer, but I had difficulty controlling the amount of ink so that's why I developed my own tool to create the splatter.
I started to make this card just the other day. I had no idea what theme I was going to use until I was on Shelli Gardner's site, So Shelli, and saw that her latest challenge was calling for a Happy Birthday theme.
I haven't made a card that pops up, slides, spins in some time so before I started I decided to do a view master type card with a bit of a twist. The twist being when you hold a piece of red cello over the red stamped image it reveals the hidden blue image beneath. I'm not sure what to call it but the idea came from an old game I had when I was a kid and it had this method of revealing the answers to the questions in the game card.
For this weeks sketch challenge from 2SketchesYou, I thought I would do something new. I made a travel log book based on Laura Sketch #27. It's not my usual thing, but I hope you'll enjoy it. Thanks for the great challenge!!!
This is my first time to do one of the sketch challenges from Mojo Monday. The one thing I really like about their sketches is how simple they are. Less is more, and thats how I like to make my cards. Enjoy!
Know Father's Day is coming up I wanted to stick to that theme for this sketch challenge from 2Sketches4You. The real challenge with any sketch challenge is deciding what to do with the design, but when I saw this layout it said "Skill Saw". I used tin foil to make a saw blade and sharpened my Giga Punch at the same time. It took me a while to come up with something that would look like a power cord. I found a piece of shoe lace and fed some wire through the middle, so I could coil it. I am so pleased with that part, because now it really looks like a power saw. Enjoy!!!
I really enjoyed Laura' sketch this week at 2Sketches4You. It has a nice simple layout and for me thats good, cause I had no problem coming up with a style to suit the sketch. With the big flower I wanted it to say "Look at me, touch me, love me!" I think the colours give the card the punch it needed. Enjoy!
