Off The Wall Craftiness #30 & CardPatterns Sketch 87
October 26, 2010
What really got me started on the challenges on Sunday, was this stunning colour inspiration pic from Kim at Off The Wall Craftiness - isn't it just too beautiful??
And of course, I instantly thought of our gorgeous new Designer Series Paper "Woodland Walk" - it's too yummy and in just the right colours.
Those of you who know me well, will know how much I love making those dear little gift card holders using the Scallop Envelope Die, and the sweet love note size cards. Well, when I saw these colours, and also, this great sketch by CardPatterns :
Not to mention the fact that our stampin' friend Tina is one of their guest designers this week and has already had a go at the sketch (good for you Tina!! Lovely card!!), so by the time I imagined the DSP and the sketch together, I already knew what I was going to do, and was grabbing out the Big Shot and the Love Note cards and the Wild Wasabi cardstock.
I made four cards to go in the box, and based the cards on that awesome sketch from CardPatterns. Instead of placing a circle on the card front, I decided to chomp a semi-circle out of the card front - this worked well for such tiny cards, as I was then able to stamp my greeting inside the semi-circle, which means it is also on the inside of the card already.
Overall, it was a very jolly enjoyable Sunday afternoon and evening, making card projects for different challenges! Thankfully I was able to combine some of them on the same projects.
My green and brown tones are Soft Suede & Wild Wasabi from Stampin' Up, and I have used the Scallop Circle and 1 3/8" circle punches for the hole, and a green rhinestone brad to keep the ribbon in place.
Well, what a busy week already! Hope you're having a good one too, and find some time to get some ink on your fingers! Catch you again soon,
