First up will be a little card for the Muse challenge. The incredible Gillian Ross is up as Guest Designer this week and has created a CAS masterpiece. As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to create something.
It's the kind of card, that when you see it, you smack your forehead and wonder "why didn't I think of that???!!!" This is my take on this gorgeous card:
I used a cooler pink simply because the cardstock scrap box is getting out of control again, and it happened to be available. Didn't want to cut a warmer piece and add to the box. But I like this pink trending on lavender color. I cut four 'thank you's' out with my Cameo, glued them together, then popped them onto a stitched die cut from MME, (love that set, btw). The rest of the sentiment was inked up in Smoke ink from MME using a NBUS set from PTI; Wet Paint. All the white cardstock is Neenah. Thanks, Gillian for the awesome inspiration!
Next up, is a one layer card for CASology. But how to use this week's Cue Card?...Hmmmm... A little ping pinged, and in about 10 minutes, the card practically put itself together! EZPZ.
I love the simplicity of this card. It's not the world's greatest, but there's just something about it that trips my trigger...or should I say, trips my switch?!
See what I mean about EZPZ? One stamp from Neat & Tangled, the bulb, and one from MME, the sentiment. A little SU black ink, and some Color Box Canary yellow and that almost does it. I used a dinner plate to help trace the line that the lights are strung onto. The base is Neenah white. Done and done.
And before I lose your interest (and I promise to be done in a minute), just one more card. This one's for the bright and colorful challenge over at Fusion. I did a pretty decent job of fusing the both the photo and the sketch. Check out their photo:
Doesn't that just make you smile?! And here's my take:
Since we've got overcast skies again, with MORE rain predicted, the colors in the chevrons just didn't photograph well. No matter what other lights I brought in, this is the best I could do. Sorry. Once again, I delved into my cardstock scrap box, and found bits and bobs to use up. A Neenah white base and frame and some brads whose legs I brutally ripped off (did you hear the screaming?). The "4 U" are both from Crate Paper, and the little heart was discovered on an archaeological dig through my stash; yes, it is very ancient! And as promised, done. Happy dances everyone!
