Basic Grey #26 no square corners
This card was made for Basic Grey's challenge not to use any pointed or square corners. The card was made with BG's Two Scoops. I put the yellow paper behind the image after cutting it with Nestabilities circle scallops. The image is also cut with Nesties circle. I used a Fiskers corner punch on the main panel corners and used my corner rounder on the cardstock for the card body. The stamp is Fluffles the Cat from Stampendous. I colored the image with Copic markers. Embellishments are ribbon, a spiral clip, Prima flowers and Latte pearls from Kaiser. It's a simple card, but I think it turned out really cute!
Mojo Monday #78This card was for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #78. Again, I used Basic Grey Cupcake for my background paper. The image is from SU (I think... it's from my daughter's collection). I colored the image with Copics and tied a short piece of ribbon in a knot and glued it onto the image. The pale blue is sponged on using my chalk. I haven't sponged with chalk before, and I really like the results! I used two strips of ribbon because it's pretty narrow, and doubled the bow. I used Kaiser pearls in Latte to complete the card. What do you think???
My Favorie Things Sketch Challege #73
This was probably the most fun card I made. I wanted to use this ribbon, so I colored the awning red and left part of it white. I colored the dress blue and the suit red and pink, giving her red boots. I love the look of a white card with dry embossing, so I used my CB Swiss Dots embossing folder on the background and also on the phrase. The phrase is cut out with my narrow rectangle Nesties scallop, but it's hard to see. I raised the image panel on foam dots, glued the top of the awning to the background panel and raised it again at the front on foam dots to give it a 3-D look. I had to use cotton on the poodle. I may have gotten a wee bit too much... what do you think? I finished the card with three Kaiser red pearls. I colored it all with Copics. So, what do you think? I think it's pretty cute myself :)
Cute Card Thursday #52 - a recipe
This card was made for yesterday's Cute Card Thursday. The recipe was to use something torn or ripped, two papers and four embellishments. I ripped/tore the image and ruffled the edges. I used a brown chalk around the edges as well. I colored the image with Copics. The image is from SU, my daughter's collection. My embellishments are two flowers (Prima) stacked with a brad in the center (that's 3) and a ribbon through the sentiment (that makes 4). The paper is from Basic Grey's Infuse. I also punched the bottom of the floral dp with a border punch, but it doesn't show up very well. I thought it turned out pretty cute for such a limited card. What do you think?
Penny Black Sketch Challenge #40
Clean and Simple 05 (blue and green)As simple as this card is, I think it turned out really cute! But I love the colors together. The image is Penny Black, colored with Copics, and sponged with chalk (told you I liked the results!). There is a green ribbon behind the image, but it got hidden with the Prima flowers. I popped the image up on foam squares. The image is cut out using Nesties ovals and scallops. I used silver brads in the corners. This could definitely be a CAS card!
Hey, thanks a bunch for lookin'! I'll have to make some more during the tournament again today! :)
