Happy Sunday, we are half way through the Labor Day weekend. Yesterday it was nice and sunny in the afternoon so I took advantage of it and spent about 2 1/2 hours in the pool. The mix of upper 80 degree temperature ad 74 degree water made for a nice combination. While floating around it gave me time to think about two design challenges I wanted to make cards for. For some reason I seem to be able to think better in water. LOL.
The first card I came up with is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #107. The design is below and if you click on the sketch you will be taken directly to their blog to see their design team project and ones from other crafters like me.
Since the sketch shows patterned paper as the background (at least to me it does), the first thing that came to mind was the new “Back to Black” Designer Series Paper and how I could cut a piece to size (4″x5.25″) then cut to 3.5″ x 4″ and 1.75″ x 4″ and color one of the pieces with the new Blendabilities markers. Then I decided on Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight as my color pallet. Once I colored the bottom half, I adhered both the colored section and original section to a piece of Whisper White for more stability. Punched 1″ circles to create the scallops and covered the seam with the new Cotton Ribbon. The cake is from the “Embellished Events” stamp set and candles are jewels colored with the Blendabilities, this layer is backed with Stampin Dimensionals. Small accent circles are stamped from Work of Art stamp set and punched out with 1/2″ circle punch. Greeting was stamped with Versamark and White Heat Embossed. Hope you like the card!
