Isn't OWH's card-making party great fun?! Thanks to our hostesses for such creative challenges and such nice sample cards.
Here are cards for the first 3 challenges:
Challenge 1: A Card with a Scripture Verse or an Inspirational Message
|Bo Bunny Snowfall; computer-generated font; border punch and circle templates; Stickles|
Challenge 2: A Recipe Card
In this case, the recipe was to make a card with 1 image, 2 papers, and 3 words.
|Jillibean Dutch Mustard Soup, Distress Ink Core Paper; sentiment from Whipper Snapper Designs, stamped and heat embossed with Distress Ink Dusty Concord; border punch; s.e.i Happy Day die-cut adhered with pop dots|
The scan seems to have distorted the color of the cupcake. It actually goes really well with the paper -- much better than it appears here.
Challenge 3: Make a non-Christmas Snowflake Card
|Moxxie Winterland, stash cardstock; snowflake punches, border punch; Stickles|
Wish the scan would've shown the stickling on the snowflakes. It really helps pop the flakes.
Think I'll use a little darker cardstock for the top for my next batch of Moxxie Winterland cards.
Challenge 4: Triple Stamping Techniques
|stash cardstock; Hero Arts stamp in Stampin' Up Bordering Blue and Classic Navy; tulle; Midnight Blue Stickles|
This technique was too pretty to not try. But, I changed it up just a bit. I decided to actually stamp three times -- applying the ghosting (first generation, second generation, third generation) technique in last week's Tuesday Tutorial. The center of the snowflake in the bottom left corner was stamped in a darker blue, popped using several layers of cardstock, and stickled in the middle. I'm toying with adding some Icicle Stickles -- either to just the bottom left snowflake or to a few other snowflakes as well.
What a cool effect. And, definitely something I would never have come up with on my own. Very cool, indeed!
My how my stack for OWH has grown! :)
Can't wait to see what Day 2 holds!
Until then, happy scrappin'!
