"Build a card" completed

Finally have time to upload the completed cards - 6 in total, all following the same instructions, with the same stamped image, and the same colour-way. All different.

I had so much fun doing this, and Alisa is starting another Build a card now, so I might have more to post in a few days.

Build a card

I have been participating in Alisa's Build a card project for the past few days. The idea is to follow posted instructions daily until the card is completed. So far, we have
1) stamped and cut out an image in particular colours (pink, green and yellow)
2) selected a card base and first panel (from the same colors) Note that the stamped flower is not attached.
3) add another panel with with 2 banners - one from the same as base card stock.
As I find it easier to work in multiples, I stamped and cut out 5 more images, so here are the other 5 card bases so far. More to follow later in the week, time permitting.

Feb swap

The Artful Stampers Feb swap was an Easter card, which had me thinking! I don't have any specific Easter stamp sets, so I used the Whacky wishes sentiment, and stamped a background using Flower patch stamps. It was fun, and I will use this method again for very original "dsp"

Blog Hop 76

Artful stampers blog hop was a sketch this week. I turned it on it's side. It was super quick to make this card, and a great way to use up all those scraps that I can't throw away!

This is what I came up with.

Artful stampers blog hop 75

This was an "Up in the air " inspiration photo, so I immediately thought of airplanes, and fished out the Sky is the limit stamp set - great for masculine cards. I CASE'd this from Alisa Tilsner's blog. The photo has washed out the colours a little, so I am disappointed with that.

Having made that card, I was then inspired to make more masculine cards along the same line. (In fact I CASE'd my own card.) The background for all cards was made by using the versatile World traveler embossing folder.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at these cards. I will be back later. TFL.
