First up is my card for CASology. Somehow I think if I put this one in first, I won't miss the deadline. Makes no sense, as it won't go in until I finish this post and publish it, but that's how my silly brain works.... Anyway...the Cue Card for this challenge is "blossom."
And I've definitely got one here:
This bloom is from the AE Petals and Stems set, and the sentiment is from Oh Happy Day all on a Michaels white base and scrap. I used some Colorbox ink for the bloom, and some old Rubber Stampede purple ink for the center and the sentiment. Not sure why I chose purples, but I did. I added some Doodlebug flower sequins on and off the ME die cut mat, and I popped it up with some foamy stuff from HL. It's soft and gentle irl.
Next up is a card for Avery Elle's AEIHEARTU Challenge, where we're to use stripes. Don't have to ask me twice. Next to polka dots, I love stripes best. Must be the orderliness of them....Anyway, I'll show you what I've made now. And there's still time for you to play along, so fire up those AE stamps and join me in the gallery!
Stripes, check. All stamps are from AE, naturally... For this I started with a Michaels white base, the panel, and a bit for the polaroid camera. After coloring with Copics, I found matchy-matchy scraps of pink, yellow and blue in the big ol' scrapbox, and set them at an angle. Cut the focal panel out with my ME die and added a black mat. Fussy cut the camera, added some GA, and then stamped the sentiment. Didn't have the right color of yellow sequin, so I colored one with a Sharpie. The pink sequin also matches, but it's off-color in this photo. I popped the camera up a bit just for fun. This will make one of my teenage granddaughters happy. And with that, I've got two more cards to make and mail today. Happy dances everyone!!
