Hello! I’d like to share a one layer card I made for the current challenge at Time Out. There’s a little under a week left to enter your creations as inspired by this awesome card by Anita, our guest designer. While my first card here was inspired by the colors in Anita’s card, my card today was inspired by the layout, specifically the embossed geometric aqua/teal/turquoise panel on her card. If you’re inspired by Anita’s card, we hope you’ll share it with us at Time Out!
To make my card, I first stamped the image (Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles set from STAMPlorations) on my card base. I stamped it again on a post-it note, fussy cut, and placed it over the stamped image as a mask. Next, I stamped the border (Vignette: Art Deco Border Builders set) on the right in VersaMagic chalk inks. Then I sponged some yellow around the candles. I removed the mask and colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment (from the same holiday set) in VersaMagic chalk ink (midnight black). I finished the card by rounding the bottom corners.
I’d like to enter my card to these fun challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More #109 – CAS; Deep Ocean Challenge #85 – Christmas in August; Penny’s Paper Crafty Challenge 191 – Christmas, Children, or Critters; Wonderful Wednesday – Anything Goes; Stamps & Fun = Creativity – Christmas in Summer; Simon Says Monday Challenge – Anything Goes; and Lady Crafts Ink TLT Challenge – CAS.
And before I go, I’d like to share a simple canvas I did last week when I found a roll of gift wrapping paper. It was my extra spotlight project over at STAMPlorations. I used stamps from the newly released Bloom Sketches, as well as from the Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds set. I’ve got a video showing how I did it from start to finish too. It’s 7 minutes, 38 seconds long — done in my usual style: in fast-forward motion, captioned, and accompanied by Mozart. Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for stopping by!
