Some More Cards!
Colour Q- Brown, orange, turquoise, white
Oh yes this is my inspiration from the most recent Battle of the Bands. Stephen T McCarthy who loves American Graffiti (who wouldn't??) chose the song "Since I Don't Have You" which was in the film. I thought what better way to showcase the music but have a 1950's car leaving this 50's gal behind who took his heart and stomped on it. Well she is holding it up like a trophy. Music was changing big time in the 50's with rock and roll and it is a by-gone era so why I thought the watch would work here. I hope I did the music and, what inspired me, justice.
Craft Your Passion-Always anything goes
Yup I was too late for the Color throwdown and they are colours I love! Blue and ...blue. I tried a new style which is using the Tim Holtz distress ink. I stamped it on a platform (that you can clean up after) and spritzed it with water and then just laid the white card down on it. Not too bad eh? I don't have any sparkle on this either-what is the world coming to!!
Happy Little Stampers- CASE (clean and simple)-masking
This was hard for me to do...why? I had to make it simple with no embellishments. This is like asking me to forgo chocolate for a year. I did it though and it looks pretty good overall. I stamped and embossed the butterflies first. You can't see them until you place the colour on top. I did this the same way as I mentioned above. The colour does not adhere to what was masked. After enduring wrist pain trying to get the corner punch to work and almost hurling it through the window, My hubby came up and did it for me. I cut out the butterfly (machine does all the work) and coloured the wings and attached the wings to the butterfly with a glue pen.
Happy Little Stampers-Christmas-Sparkle.
Christmas Cards All Year Round-Snowflakes
CASE Christmas-Case the card on their blog and be inspired by it.
CHNC-Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas
Yup-a really hot day so I made a Christmas card with a snowflake because I felt a little flaky. Um....well I did and do feel flaky so there. Of course I used my favourite colour-blue and any shade will do. I used sparkle and shine and felt just fine:) I was inspired by the CASE card because they had a snowflake border punch and a design on their paper and some ribbon and lace. I hope this works.
So there we have it. I was in bad pain yesterday- my ribs hurt and I could hardly talk (my hubby was so happy). I had no idea until the Dr. and Naturalpath told me that the ribs are jointed also since they must move(never knew that). I was happy to make a card and start a couple before laying on the couch. I am better today so could finish all. I am pleased with myself that I overcame the pain so I am bragging a bit:) I will be back to work tomorrow-I had 2 weeks off and mainly did a staycation but it was nice being away from work.
Hope you like my BOTB card and how I was inspired. Have a great week everyone!
