Going at it again… hoping for one day to win one of these challenges 🙂 Anyway… The throwback challenge was to use the Wild Card cartridge for a holiday… well my parents 43 wedding anniversary is a big holiday for us! so here is my card. I also made a video to show how it was made.
I love 365 Cards Challenges because they always give me a visual image to work with. I did an “old” Victorian house using the Heritage cartridge. I folded an 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half from Colorbook – yellow paper – and cut the light blue layer from a piece of scrap I also had from Colorbook pastels. The layer is 5″ X 8″. The house is found on page 39 and was cut at 4.5″ I embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Houndstooth folder. I distressed the house using Martha Steward metallic inks. I cut my own curtains and the “stained glass” in the windows with older scraps from Martha Steward glitter paper. Here is mine take on the “old” challenge:
Like the night owl I am… my inspiration came late tonight. I was thinking about it the whole weekend so here is my entry.
Green paper in the card (8.5 x 11″ – folded in half) by The Paper Company
Yellow paper: Potpourri value cardstock from Big Lots – cut at 5: x 8″
Bassinet paper: Pastels by Colorbook – Cut using CD Studio at 4.5″ x 5″ tall
A Star is Born – tag by Paper Bliss
Star – jewel found at my local fashion district in Downtown Los Angeles
Flowers – found at my local fashion district in Downtown Los Angeles
I marked the bassinet’s scallops with my Sharpies fine points – sold at Office Depot – new Caribbean colors.
I embossed the bassinet with my Cuttlebug hearts folder.
Used 3D-Dots to glue the bassinet to the card.
Here is my recipe for the card:
Cut the dragon on page 34 at 4″ using the following papers:
Copper paper for body of dragon- By Paper Source
White paper used for the shadow – by Cypress Fashion colors – The paper company
The Lanterns were also cut using the Pogoda Cartridge on page 24.
They were cut at 2″
Red paper – By Paper Source
White paper – by Cypress Fashion colors – The paper company
Clear sequins that I had left over form my wedding dress (OMG.. that
is like 9 years ago).
Silver and pink rhinestones from Bead Party.
regular 8.5 x 11″ paper folded in half – Black paper – by Bazzill
Basics – Beetle Black with texture
3D dots to raise the dragon and lanterns.
You are an Animal from The Pink Stamper’s Punny-licious set. It was set on a pre-cut
flower that I bought from Michael’s a long time ago.
I set each little sequin and bead using tweezers and Elmer’s Craft and
bond clear glue on the dragon once I had put it all together.
This is my first card using the Punny-licious stamps from My Pink Stamper. The card is an A2 size card using one of my pretty economy papers from Big Lots. I used the Create a Critter Whale and cut it at 3″. I used the printed eyes that I got from Joann’s. These are so cute as they have eyelashes printed right on them. I also used my Friskars punch to do the edging and a green scrap to cut the green accent on it.
