Hope it's been a nice weekend.
I had a chance to make a couple of cards this afternoon inspired by this week's OWH sketch. So, I have two cards to share.
In each case, I had to use a different-sized oval different than the sketch oval. After cutting out the oval, I decided on the oval's focal point image. After that, I made changes to the sketch based upon the embellishments that accentuated each focal point.
Each card was also inspired by the Midweek Throwdown challenge to create a sentiment-free card. Since the cards are sentiment-free, I chose to move down the sticker/stars and ribbon embellishments.
Card 1: An Any Hero Card
|Cardstock: AC, Bazzill Admiral and Watermelon|
Bo Bunny Liberty rub-on transfer and sticker; Mark Richards crystal stickers
Punches: Martha Stewart punch all over the page, The Paper Studio, circle punch
Think I will also post this one at CAS-ual Fridays. This week's challenge is to make a card that has a circle.
Card 2: A Card for a Hero to Send to a Loved One
|Paper: My Mind's Eye Moments, Distress Ink Core Paper inked in Stampin' Up! Bordering Blue|
Technique: fancy cutting; Embellishments: Mark Richards crystal stickers, tulle
Still working on my resolutions -- including leaving comments for fellow card-makers!
An interesting thing happened this week that reminded me of when I first joined a gym years ago. The first week I joined the gym, I won a free T-shirt. That may not sound like a lot, but I don't typically win much. And, I took it as a sign that I was really supposed to continue working out.
Well, this week I learned I won some blog candy -- from a blog where I had left a comment during the Top Ten of 2012 blog hop. This was my first blog candy win -- and I am taking it as a sign that I really am supposed to continue leaving comments. :)
Hope everyone has a great week! Thanks for stopping. Happy scrappin'!
