Hi everyone! Although I went to a weekend crop for National Scrapbook Day (15 pages done!), I wanted to participate in OWH's VCMP - Virtual Card making party. I've got a lot of catching up to do and I plan on putting all the cards in this one post.
Challenge #1: ODBD Miss You :
I made the background on glossy paper with alcohol inks. The sentiment is from Stamps of Life, mounted on to two pieces of vellum.
Challenge #2: Kids cards
I cut the Ipod images on my Cricut and the sentiment is from the You set at Simon Says Stamp. I now see that Paula didn't challenge is to do both a boy & girl card, but it was easy to make the second one.
Challenge #3: Romance cards
The sentiment is a rubon from Creative Imaginations and the papers are all from my stash. The ruffle card tutorial was one of the first ones I watched over a year ago and it was fun to re-visit the technique.
Challenge #4: Card from a scrapbook sketch
Here's the sketch from Crafty Sketches October 2011:
Here's my take on the sketch:
The papers, sentiment and hearts are from the May Simon Says Stamp card kit. I inked the hearts with Tsukineko Brilliance gold ink. Now, I know that the Mother's Day deadline for OWH has passed, but I had to make some Mother's Day cards to mail out.
Challenge #5: OWH Sketch #171
Sentiment, lace & paper is from the May SSS card kit. This started out as a masculine card, but the lace took it to the feminine side. Once Sandy challenged us with romance, I can't seem to get off that subject!
Challenge #6: Handmade by Julie - Use a photo on a card
What a great idea! This picture is from my Hawaii trip last year - I took tons of flower pictures. The sentiment is from Jillibean and the papers are from the April Simon Says Stamp kit.
Challenge #7: Summertime cards
Paper & sentiment from the April SSS card kit. I colored the digistamp using Copics and embossed the top yellow half of the card with the Swirls Cuttlebug folder.
Challenge #8: Googlie Eyes
I used an image from My Cute Graphics and the sentiment is from the You set from Simon Says Stamp. I thought I had no googly eyes, but I found a small bag this morning! Yeah! I need to stay away from craft stores for a while and use my stash.
Alrighty then - I completed all the VCMP challenges and got a good head start on my next OWH box. I'm gonna check out what the other ladies have been doing this past weekend and....relax!
Thanks for stopping by.
