Running a little late. I really like to get things posted on Sunday or Monday early in the day. Just got back from vacation in Minnesota. Oh my the views were just fantastic. Now back home and need to get some things posted on the blog. This is my entry for Make It Monday. I made this card as a sample for the shop to prove that you don't have to totally color an image and it can still look cute.
This idea was on the internet, but I don't remember where. You cut a hole and then layer pieces of ribbon. I added the extra piece with the sentiment on it. The challenge at Just us Girls was to use ribbon scraps.
This is my entry for Make it Monday this week. I used the technique called paper piecing for this card. So I stamped the image on the base paper, then I stamped it on the designer paper and cut out the pumpkin and placed it over the image on the base paper. The rest of the image was colored with colored pencils
The challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week was to use the sketch that they had posted. I know it is a little early for Christmas, but I needed a sample at the shop I work at once a month. The Santa stamp is from Viva Los Vegasstamps. I also used one of the new Spellbinder Card Creator dies.
The challenge at CASual Friday this week was to have something that you see in the sky. I thought this card would be perfect. It is very simple with only two stamps. The tree and moon stamp is made by Memory Box and the leaf stamp is made by Her. I used a little distress ink on the moon.
If you love layers then this project is for your. I just love the look. The Ivory part of the card is Neenah Supersmooth Ivory.
The sizes for these layers are 5 1/4 x 4, 4 1/4 x 3 and 3 1/4 x 2
You layer these with repositionable adhesive. That way they can be taken apart after stamping.
The maroon cardstock is Cranberry Brown Bag and the blue is Blueberry Brown Bag. I used a technique from Technique Junkies called curled corners on the small maroon piece because I wanted to show that the brown bag cardstock is the color of a brown paper bag on the backside.
The sizes for the colored layers are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 and 3 1/2 x 2 1/4.
Thought this would be perfect to enter in the anything goes challenge at Party Time Tuesday.
