I've been in and out of my craft room all weekend, and am now ready to post everything. I focused on restocking my Get Well cards this weekend. I still need to make some masculine cards, as I realized that all the ones I made this weekend are quite girly.
I'll start with my favorite of the bunch. I am entering this tag at Tag You're It #13, where I was inspired by the washi tape, layered die cuts, double layer tag and the tiny bow on Heather Campbell's pretty inspiration tag.
I decided to turn my tag into a card, and it will be sent off tomorrow. The Washi Tape is NBUS--you still have a few hours to play along at CASology, where the cue word this week is NBUS, and you have a few days to play along at Darnell's NBUS Challenge.
I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #169 for my next card. I finally broke into my NBUS Cuppa Love by Papertrey for the flowers inside the circle window.
I used the Cuppa Love stamps again, along with the matching die, for my next get well card. I stamped a stripe across the base of the card using one of the graphic stamps in the set, and then adhered my stamped cup on top.
I used this week's ColourQ #275 for my colors and the home made foam sticker technique from this week's Make it Monday #175 for my little take care tag.
My last get well card uses a technique I saw somewhere, and I think it is called baby wipe stamping--or something like that. I can't remember where I saw it, or even if I did it right, but I tried it and made a card. Something about putting reinkers (I used drops of liquid water color paint) onto a baby wipe and then having the colors run together. I used Delicata Gold for the flower centers because I thought the card needed a little something more.
Here is a picture of what it looked like in process.
Switching gears entirely, I have two cards for this week's Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Soft Scarf. I thought I'd pull out some holiday Hero Arts stamps, since they are the sponsor. I had two ideas, both of them incorporating the colors from the scarf as well as the idea of a frosty cold holiday.
I made a shaker card using sequins in the same colors as the scarf, and my stamping is Silver on black card stock.
On my next card, I stamped a snowy neighborhood, then masked the houses so I could blend a sunset background in the same colors as the scarf. I colored some of the white bits of the houses with colored pencils, and went over the snow with Wink of Stella.
Well, that's it for me today.
Thanks for Visiting
