Hi, my friends. Today was pretty much a play day for me. I played with some dies for some fun vintage flowers, but that is just something that I have an idea for, but nothing actually made yet. You may see that in the near future if it works the way I want it to. I also started working on an ornament for the technique challenge today on SCS, but again, didn't get that finished.
However, I did finish two cards for the Hope challenges. Yesterday's was All about Girls in Pink. Well, you can just guess what that one is all about -- yep -- girls in pink! This is where I decided to get sassy.
I pulled out a template that I had made a couple years ago for a card and decided to get some more mileage out of it. I traced it and cut it out of melon mambo cardstock. I did a lot of sponging with rich razzleberry to give it a little more dimension. For the front piece, I stamped a girl (rubbernecker) with tuxedo black memento ink and colored her with copic markers. Then I traced that pattern piece around the image and cut it out. I added more sponging as well as some black pearls. I highlighted the flower centers with white gel pen.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word sassy to make it look like a label on the boot. I also added a little ribbon tab for the boot pull.
How sassy is that?
Today's Hope challenge was to use buttons. Well, I have quite a stash of buttons, many from my mom's stash, as well as plenty more of my own.
I started with a leaf stamp (rubbernecker) stamped with wild wasabi ink on vanilla. I then die cut it with labels eleven nestabilities (spellbinders) and sponged some pear pizzazz around the edge before removing it from the die.
My card base is wild wasabi. I embossed a piece of designer paper (from my stash) with my bricked embossing folder (tim holtz/sizzix) and sponged a bit of wild wasabi around the edges. In the corners I attached some small black photo corners.
I attached a piece of wide twill tape and stamped the sentiment (garden silhouettes - SU) below that. Then I attached the image piece with dimensional tape. I used mini glue dots to attach the buttons. I thought that it needed a bit more accent, so I added a couple pieces of black cardstock on top of the twill -- just tucked underneath the edge of the image. I also added some faux brads -- just punched some tiny circles from black cardstock and glued them on.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great week.
