The current "Art Cards" challenge is wrinkles; the "Secret Crafters" challenge # 116 is to use tons of texture; the "Our Creative Corner" challenge is a photo depicting birds, berries, etc. For this card, I crumpled up a sheet from a catalogue, straightened it out, glued it onto cardstock, then painted it with white Gesso and Sparkle Mod Podge. I stamped the Art Journey images onto acetate with Staz On Black Ink, and layered that over the wrinkled sheet. Then I put rub-on branches and berries onto three areas of the acetate. Then I pop-dotted two coloured and glittered Hero Arts butterflies as shown. To glitter the butterflies, I used Tulip ® Fashion Glitter Bond (iLoveToCreate™) to paint some of the design on the wings, then sprinkled Tulip ® Fashion Glitters over the adhesive. Overspray with Krylon Matte Finish Spray.
The challenge for Inkurable Stampers is birthday with some gold." The Etsy Inspired challenge is to check out this Etsy Shop, called "La Pomme," for inspiration. What a deLIGHTful shop! I used this photo from La Pomme for inspiration. I used an Art Journey sentiment stamp, stamped with Ancient Page grey ink, and an Art Journey dancer stamp, stamped with Versafine Coal Black ink, layered over gold mirri cardstock. The white embossed lace doily stamp is from Hero Arts. I used Tulip® Glam it Up™ Iron On Crystals™ on the following cards, glued on with Aleene's® Paper Glaze™, both by iLovetoCreate™.
The current "Alphabet Challenge" is journey; the current "Postcard Art" challenge is to depict hobbies or past-times. My guys' past-time is walking...long, luxurious, chatty walks with good friends. How often do we take the time to do that!? Both the image and the sentiment stamps are from Art Journey. I glue the layers on my cards with Aleene’s® Crystal Clear Tacky Spray™ (iLoveToCreate™).
My last card for today is for Card Patterns Sketch # 97. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the black background, and this beautiful rose stamp from Art Journey, paired with a white embossed Hero Arts sentiment stamp. I chalked the rose in a colour to match the May Arts hearts ribbon. To adhere the heart ribbon, I use Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue (iLoveToCreate™) from a small plastic squeeze bottle with a #9 Squeeze Bottle Tip, which is just great for fine applications of glue.
So, you've seen all the cards for the challenges today...now on to my happy news! All these cards have one element in common. Can you guess what it is? It's so EASY! (lol)
My happy HAPPY news is to announce that I've been invited to be part of a particular design team, and I'm just SOOOO excited!! I have a full-to-bursting envelope of card creating supplies on offer or someone who identifies the design team. (Hint: the manufacturer...and the design team...are both outside of North America, and fi you scroll through my blog, you'll see several fairly recent posts using their product.) I'll choose a winner through random.org. Ummm...not open to members of this particular design team, of course...
Thanks so much (again) for stopping by my blog. I'll visit you too, if I have a link! I wish you a delightful week, doing whatever you enjoy the most.
