I stamped the fun kite image from the Perfectly Perfect Day set by Avocado Arts in Tuxedo black. I used a few Spectrum Noir markers to color in the kites. I drew in the kite strings freehand and added the bow and sentiment from the same stamp set.
Well, that's it for this little card. There's still some time to play along, so be sure to check out the challenge for yourself!
Don't you just love these colors?!?! Red, black, and white are my FAVORITE colors. If I were feeling better, I would definitely be entering more than one card. Anyhow, here is my card for the challenge:
I started by adhering a black and white striped paper from Fancy Pants to a white card base.
Next I added roses from PTI's Rosie Posie set. I die cut the roses out of red cardstock and stamped and heat embossed the rose image onto the die cuts using Versamark ink and clear glitter embossing powder. I LOVE how the flowers turned out!
To finish the card, I added an image from PTI's Wish Big stamp set and scattered a few clear rhinestones around.
Here is the cute little card I made thinking about snow:
I love this wonderful snowy scene. It's a journaling card from Echo Park's Winter Wishes collection. The scene was so cute that I wanted it to be the star of the card, so I kept the rest of the card pretty simple.
I created a simple Polaroid frame for it. I finished off the card by heat embossing a sentiment from PTI's Vintage Picnic in silver at the bottom of the frame.
And there you have it! A quick and simple snowy CAS card!
I hope this card serves up some winter fun inspiration for all of us OWH card makers participating in the midweek throwdown!
Hello. My name is Nathalia, and I'm a paper hoarder. :) I guess it's no real secret how in LOVE I am with all the cute paper that's available to us as papercrafters. I was recently moving a few things around in my craft room and discovered just exactly how much paper I have in my stash. Yikes!
So I plan to focus on stashing-busting, MAJOR stash-busting!
I'm starting with a method I read about in this OWH post. The post-writer explained how she took one 6 x 6 pad of paper and turned it into 24 cards. And this blogger managed to make 54 cards out of a single 6 x 6 pad. How cool is that?!?! So I'm going to give this method a whirl! My plan is to see how many cards I can make out of one 6 x 6 pad. So Hang onto your hats because here we go!
I've selected this pad called Reunion by My Mind's Eye as my challenge paper:
I started out with five sheets from this pad this OWH sketch:
I love using these OWH sketches. They put the measurements on the sketch so I don't have to sit there and try to eyeball sizes! These are the first two cards that I came up with:
