I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
**** Disclaimer **** Oh no! I just realized as I loaded this post and visited the Dynamic Duos site to retrieve the URL for the color challenge that I mistakenly used Daffodil Delight instead of Summer Starfruit (hope I am not disqualified..all I wrote down in my notebook was Bright Yellow...) Sorry Dynamic Duos!!!
I love doing challenges since it forces me to go “outside my box” so to
speak and since I tend to gravitate towards a vintage style, these bright
colors are definitely out of my normal comfort zone (plus I already had
quite a few scraps previously embossed in these colors so this card was a quick
one to create)!
I chose to flip the
sketch over completely- from what I understand, it is the general rule of thumb
that you are allowed to flip the sketch.
If not, sorry Fab Friday!!
If you have not
visited either site yet, I encourage you to do so- you will be in for a treat!!
Initial Card- see below for 2nd version :-)
To create this card:
Stamp the bird image
using Early Espresso Classic Ink and color with the Stampin’ Write Daffodil
Delight and Gumball Green markers.
Center the large
Chalk Talk Framelit™ over the bird image and use the Big Shot™ to cut the tag. Also cut another piece from Gumball Green
Core’dinations cardstock and layer behind the bird image.
Add the embossed flag
(I used a previously embossed piece of the Gumball Green Core’dinations paper
and sanded with the Sanding Block).
Create the tag
sentiment layer using Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper and the Gumball
Green Core’dinations along with the sentiment mounted onto an oval frame (from the
Large Oval punch).
Use the Big Shot™ to
emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured
Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere to a Gumball Green layer. Add the center panel of Daffodil
Delight/Whisper White and Gumball Green.
Layer the tag element
along with the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the 3/8” Gumball
Green Stitched Satin triple ribbon bow to finish off the card.
Quick, easy and I am
thrilled that I could use up those scraps as well!
