This week at BBTB2, they inspired us with the flying bird on Florals Embellished. I don't have that cart, but I liked this image from ACY. Since I need to make several anniversary cards, this worked great for me. (Sorry the pic is not totally in focus!)
~dsp from the Paper Studio Mirabelle stack
~shimmery white paper by Slice
~heart from Bazzill
~birds are from ACY, cut twice and just used the heart in red
I used... ~Cordinations cardstock ~Distressed stripes and Diamonds in the rough Cuttlebug folders ~motorcycle from EDPD - I cut it in red, black, and silver and pieced it ~cloud from EDPD ~ brads, tag, and string from my stash ~since for a man, I tore the paper rather than use a 'pretty' punch
I'm getting behind in my Christmas card making!! For several weeks, I have missed the challenges at jingle belles. This week the inspiration was a photo and the theme was visions of sugarplums. I think I have mentioned that I am a traditional red, green, and gold Christmas person. Sooooo... purple???
I tried it... purple, dangling, sparkling. I really like how it turned out.
What I used:
~premade 5x7 card, vellum, Bazzill lt purple, silver Slice paper
~vellum embossed with Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder
~ornaments from Christmas Noel cart cut at 2 1/2" and 3 1/4" with blackout
I had the eighth note in my shapes in MTC. Shadowed it, copied the shadow, flipped it and welded for the card itself. I cut the shadow once in the silver for the background and so that the front would be whole and not have a flat side on my note. Cut the notes in black. Printed the sentiment (it is actually on pink paper, but it doesn't look like it), tied with ribbon and put it on with pop dots.
New techniques are always fun and this is no exception... crayon resist. That was the challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week. They have a couple of links to great tuts, so go check it out!
I am also submitting this to Whimsical Wednesdays' back-to-basics challenge to go 'old school' - no Cricut.
This card is for a girl who likes petunias, so I found clipart, printed it, crayoned, oops, I mean colored, and inked it.
Here's a male birthday card for 'dad' I need to start on Father's Day cards soon, but this came together better for a birthday. My kids could use it for my hubby... his birthday is not until Nov. If I use it, my dad's birthday is in Dec, so I'm really ahead of the curve this year!! :D
I am surrounded by 80 pairs of shoes!!! Unfortunately, they are not size 6 1/2! They are made of paper. They are the favor holders for our church's Mother/Daughter Luncheon on Saturday. They were fun to make except when I had to fight with my adhesive. Grr!!
Here they all are with the candy treat...
I found the Marie Antoinette shoe HERE (* I did a pixel trace into MTC and widened the upper so that I could fit the treat in it)
Making this many, I did not have time to really make them fancy, but I am pleased with the result. (And I just found out that there may be more ladies so I need to make a few more!)
I used the Paper Studio Mirabelle paper and K & Co Classic K 2 sided. They took a LOT of adhesive, too. I used my ATG because the little runners did not hold well enough.
update... here are a couple of pics of these set on the tables
