SC 023/12….

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations this week is to create a card, scrapbook page, 3-D Item, etc with a “Love” or “Valentine” Theme.  Be sure to head over to see what both Kris & Shirley  – who is our Guest Designer fo rthe next couple of weeks, while Gwen takes a little time off.

It seems like forever since I created a card as I have been enjoying my scrapbooking.  I hope you have too!

This proved more difficult than I thought it would for me, but I think I got there in the end.  I elected to go with non-traditional colours, although in the end I did throw a bit of red (Riding Hood Red) into the card.  I wanted to create a card which would maybe suit a male without being too “pretty”!

Measurements –
Base Card – Early Expresso Cardstock – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 10.5cm  Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Vanilla Vanilla Cardstock – 5 5/8″ x 4″ or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Early Expresso Cardstock –  4″ x 3 1/2″ or 10cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Very Vanilla Cardstock – 3 7/8″ x 3 3/8″

I layered my piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock onto my Base Card – Early Expresso, using Snail Adhesive.

I run the smaller piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots & adhered to the piece of Early Expresso Cardstock.

I stamped 2 images onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Riding Hood Red, adhered one to the embossed piece with Multipurpose Glue, while the top heart was “popped” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a piece of Ribbon across the bottom of the 2 pieces prior to adhering to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my sentiment direct onto the Base Card with Riding Hood Ink.

Stamp Set – I {Heart} Hearts, Well Scripted
Ink – Riding Hood Red
Cardstock – Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
Ribbon – 3/8″ Taffeta – Riding Hood Red

Scrappy Saturday…

….on a Monday???

I completed this page on Friday, but have only just gotten round to posting it.  I meant to post Saturday, but better late than never.
I’ve stamped random images down the RHS using Pretty-in-Pink Ink.  I then layered the photo in Pretty-in-Pink Cardstock.  It has been so long since I’ve used this colour.
The DSP has been layered onto Concord Crush Cardstock and a Ribbon adhered to the LHS of the DSP.  I stamped the heart image onto Whisper White Cardstock, punched it out using my Heart Punch, punched a hole in it & attached it to the ribbon so that it would hang a little.
Supplies –
Stamp Set – I {Heart} Hearts
Inks – Pretty in Pink
Cardstock – Whisper White, Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink
DSP – Lap of Luxury
Punches – Full Heart Extra Large, Handheld Punch
Ribbon – 1/2″ Stitched-Poly – Concord Crush, Linen Thread

Until next time, Enjoy!
