The styles are divided into six style themes:
Clean and Simple
Clean and Layered
Clean and Graphic
Classy and Elegant
How cool is that?! You have got to go and see for yourself. I know I'll play here often. For their first challenge, TCC has gone with a color-themed one. Yummy. Neapolitan Ice Cream...Love it!
I got a "ping" right away. Wasn't sure if I could make it work, but somehow, I managed. Really wanted to play in the Clean and Graphic style, but I'm pretty sure that this is more in the Clean and Layered style. The "ping" wouldn't let me go in a different direction today...who knows what tomorrow will bring however. My card looks like this:
I started with a kraft base, Gina K. nice paper. I cut a 4" x 5.25" panel from a scrap of dp, with my Cameo. Then I used a scrap of brown and cut it with an MFT "love" die. A snip of SU brown ribbon, and attached is a Teresa Collins star. Now for the interesting part...In one of my drawers, I thought I had some spray adhesive, but it turned out to be a high gloss glaze. Thought, "what the heck, I'm trying this...", and did. I sprayed a transparency and sprinkled some Stampendous glitter. So it's not a shaker card, the glitter is literally stuck to the the transparency paper. I adhered the sentiment to a white scrap and then popped the glittery panel to that. That's tucked and adhered to the heart panel. Done. I rather like this project. I definitely like this challenge!
I have one more card to share. This one is a birthday card for one of the grandsons, who turns 15 (where did that time go?????) He's really special. I mean Really special. I hope you all have a son/grandson just like him. I've been thinking about this card a while. His favorite color is orange, and I wanted to incorporate it into this card, and not make it look too girly or kiddie. I think it works. This one is going into the latest challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Great sketch, and once I decided to go with it, it practically made itself. Here's their sketch:
And here's what I came up with:
Lots of scraps...I started with a Neenah white base, then found that circle-y orange scrap in the dp box, along with the more solid-ish one. The blue scraps are full of texture, and I got them a million years ago at a scrap convention. The polaroid frame was cut on my Cameo, and I used an SU grunge stamp and then an Avocado Arts sentiment, stamped directly on top of that. Both stamps used my favorite Jenni Bowlin navy. A SC wood veneer star, and an MME enamel dot. And that's all. I'll shut up now! Happy dances everyone.
