I took a break from my online card class homework yesterday to make this card for ColourQ cQc #232. One of the 'colors' this week is newsprint. How fun is that? I used some SU newsprint paper to make some flowers using my new Button Stack dies. Each newsprint flower has a black card stock button die cut underneath cut from some other button dies I have--they looked better with something behind them. The leaves are from Waltzingmouse Simple Sprig.
My second card today is for this week's Make it Monday #155: Create your own confetti with Papertrey Ink Dies and Simon Says Wednesday Mother's Day Special Girl. I used the small numbers dies from the Hands of Time set to make a bunch of colorful number confetti. I used that confetti in a shaker card that I will be sending my niece for her 16th birthday. The card base as well as the Text Birthday Die cut use some silver shimmer paper from Michaels. I have been surprised to see some really high quality papers at my local Michaels lately.
The confetti is cut from Limeade Ice, Raspberry Fizz, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Tropical Teal and SU Tempting Turquoise. Here is a peek at that confetti. It was probably the most time consuming part of the card because most of those tiny numbers had to be picked out of the dies--but I moved my die cut machine to my desk and cut while watch I watched my online craft clas videos.
