Hi friends. I hope you're not getting tired of these cards. I've been having fun making them. I completed two more of the breast cancer awareness challenges on SCS.
Challenge twenty-seven - keep it under wraps. Make a decorated or altered notepad.
Quite a few years ago, I took a class at a local stamp store. We made a hard covered notepad for a mini legal pad. Over the years, I've made more of these and knew this would be perfect for this challenge. I dug out my instructions and went to work.
There are two pockets on the left side, and one on the right, made from cardstock. I glued little strips of the same paper as the covers at the top of the left-hand pockets and over the top of the notepad. The notepad slips into the right-hand pocket and can be replaced when it is used up.
I made pink daisies to decorate the cover and one for the inside. I also die cut some letters for the front cover.
Challenge twenty-eight - a listening ear. Make a card with ears on it.
I have lots and lots of flower stamps. And butterflies. I admit it. But not a lot of other things. So I wasn't sure what I was going to use for this challenge. As I was looking through my stamps, I came across my fluffles stamps... perfect!
I picked fluffles leap (stampendous), stamped it with tuxedo black memento ink, and colored it with copic markers. I cut it out with a die, but didn't like the shape, so I ended up trimming it off with scissors. I just traced around a plastic container to get the curve.
I sponged vintage photo ink around the edges, and layered with pumpkin pie and black cardstock on a summer sun card base.
The sentiment is from SU's inspired by nature. I added some tiny die cut leaves and black pearls for an accent.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
