I’m playing along with the Mojo Monday blog challenge again.
Here is my card:
It took me a while to decide which papers to combine with this sketch, my craft table is a mess. My first version just didn’t have enough contrast for me so I tried again. For the flower, I stamped off the base flower once before stamping on the piece of Whisper White.
I’m playing along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge today.
Here’s my take on it:
and here’s the sketch:
I used the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack for the three patterned papers on the card. The Old Olive one is cut at 4″ x 4″, the flowers at 2″ x 2″ and the Calypso Coral pattern is cut at 3 1/2″ x 3/4″. I layered each piece with Basic Black using a 1/16″ border and adhered the panel to a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla. The sentiment comes from Suite Sayings and I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch for both of the circle. I finished it off with the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
I’m playing along with two challenges today. The Paper Players sketch challenge and Pals Paper Arts color challenge.
I used this to make my cards for a shoe-box swap coming up this weekend. I didn’t have enough of the English Garden Designer Series Paper left for all of the cards I need to have so I made two versions.
I’m doing pretty well at keeping up this January for the LOAD challenge on the Facebook Scrapbook LOAD Challenge group. I’m up to #15 & #16. For this one, I tried to only use current Stampin’ Up! products but I may have gone overboard on the number of items I used. 🙂
I just thought I would pop in and show you what we made yesterday at my new catalog celebration workshop.
This card is a CASE of this card. I just wish I had the black diagonal stripe from the Neutrals paper for the edge strip but this polka dot from Schoolhouse is cute too. Just like on the linked page, I used the negative from the tree builder punch as a stencil to sponge on the largest clouds.
This card took me four tries to find a version I liked. The idea was inspired by my upline’s upline (the woman who recruited the woman who recruited me). I used the large die from the Rose Garden thinlets as a stencil to sponge the colors into the flower. My first two variations didn’t have the black outline and one was a different color combination. The third used the large die on the card also. None of those was quite right. I like how this one came out.
January really does seem to be the best time for me to scrapbook. It’s way to cold outside to do anything else and things have calmed down now that the holidays are over. If only our basement office could stay a little warmer. 🙂
I’m playing with Scrap Much?
I’ve just finished up with 2007! Now to finish out 2008.
