It’s Monday and time for another Cards In Envy Challenge. As we approach Mother’s Day, our challenge will center around “Motherly Love”. This is a very open invitation to be creative. The rules are simple for this challenge and require only that your card fit into a A2 standard envelope.
Today, my card was inspired by Therese Calvird who designs for AlteNew. My card uses the “Oriental Orchid” by AlteNew as well as AlteNew Inks. The design paper is My Favorite things and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted “Best Mom”.
We look forward to your cards over at the Cards in Envy blog. Happy card making!!
It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch challenge! Today, our sketch was contributed by Sarah of the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Design Team – Go Sarah! All entries should be posted by Monday, March 9th. As usual, all you have to do is start out with a sketch and add your own special touches.
Here’s our sketch this week:
For my inspiration this week, I’ve chosen a to take a trip to Paris! I used the Tim Holtz stamp and die set called, “French Flight”. I stamped the tower onto paper from Echo Park’s “Getaway” 6 x 6 pack using Hero Arts shadow ink. I used the Lawn Fawn Journaling die as the center focal to hold my image and fussy cut the map element from the paper pack. I finished off the card with some gold enamel dots and distressed ink. Makes me say Oooh La La!
I can’t wait to see what you enter this week!
As we scoop ourselves out of the snow here in New York, we’ve got another Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch Challenge. The challenge will remain open until Monday, February 9th and to keep it light and easy, there is no specific theme.
Here’s the sketch:
I chose to go with a masculine/boy style card and rotate the sketch making a horizontal card. I used the “Boy oh Boy” 6 x 6 paper pad from Carta Bella. The eyeglass die is My Favorite Things and the “eye chart” and sentiment is Tim Holtz. Background is Impression Obsession. My plan is to donate this to Send a Smile 4 Kids because they are expanding and have gotten more hospitals in need of cards. Those of you who were sending tons of cards to Operation Write Home and have extras now they have slowed down, please consider donating to this great cause. Here’s how.
One last tidbit. If you like my new Watermark I got it from Karen Giron, at the Sweetest Thing blog who is offering these at a GREAT price. Please support her new endeavor and pass the word to your groups as watermarks are always needed.
It’s Monday and time for another Cards In Envy Challenge. As we near Valentines Day, this challenge will be perfect as it’s “Hearts a Flutter”, which calls for at least 2 hearts on your card. The rules are simple for this challenge and simply require that your card fit into a A2 standard envelope.
For some inspiration I chose A Day For Daisies image called, “Cute Fairy Waiting”. Her sweet headband is made from hearts. I colored her with copics and used a Lifestyle Crafts square scallop die. The paper pack is an older one from Lily Bee called, “Head over Heels” and the small tag dies are My Favorite Things tied with waxy thread from Close To My Heart. I finished off with some gems and fluttered away! Come join us!
