Today I have a card that uses the colors from this week's ColourQ #268 and the sketch from RetroSketches #141. When I first saw the colors and some of the samples, I was thinking feminine, but after I put my card together, I realized that my design worked better as a masculine card--so I picked a different sentiment that wasn't so ornate. I'm also entering at Seize the Birthday, without toppings.
After cutting my 3 different colors of card stock with the SSS Diamond Parade die, I stamped them all with the background texture stamp from the same set as my sentiment--PTI's 1960's Stamp A Faire set.
Happy 2nd birthday to Addicted to CAS. I made a card with my newest owl stamp, this little cutie from Unity called Woo Hoo Owl. He is perfect for my owl-loving daughter because he has long skinny legs and wears glasses, just like her. Can you see the Glossy Accents I used to make lenses on the glasses? I am also entering at Addicted to Stamps #122 for their Make your Mark challenge, as I used Copic markers on my owl. My daughter is going to Florida tomorrow for a big lacrosse tournament, and I'll be tucking this into her suitcase.
Kristie's card to finally use my No Strings Attached stamp set, and made another card for The Card Concept 23 Krafty Christmas. I will call my card Clean and Layered.
My last card is for this week's Muse Challenge #94, Paper Players #222 Clean and Simple Thank You, and Simon Says Wednesday challenge thanks or Thanksgiving. I wanted to follow the basic sketch of the gorgeous inspiration card, and use the technique of overlapping stamped images and inlaid die cutting for the sentiment. When I stacked up my sentiment and inlaid it back into my stamped panel, topped with the layer cut from the stamped panel, it was really too difficult to read the die cut word, thanks. So, I left it as a stacked inlay, but did not put the last layer on, which was the layer cut out of the stamped panel. I added some burlap texture to the card front.
