A Trio of Cards

Hello … bonjour!  Hope your Sunday is going along wonderfully.  I have a trio of cards to share today, so will keep the chatter short and sweet … you may wish to grab a something long and cool and a snack before embarking!  First up, a wild flower, summer meadow-y sort of card …

Papertrey blooms, stamped onto a white panel and blinged up with some Stickles.  The sentiment (also Papertrey) was cut into the panel, popped up on craft foam and pieced back in.  The panel was popped up over a sponged-edged base card.  As it was for a special birthday celebration, I stamped a matching envelope too …

Next, a clean and simple, slightly graphic card …

This was really quick to make … I used the Hero Arts Just For You by Lia stamp set, exactly as it’s laid out on the acetate carry sheet … stamped it onto a Winnie & Walter scalloped pierced panel and coloured it with alcohol markers.  The images were given some shimmer and shine with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents and the panel was adhered to the base with craft foam.

Finally, a bright, smooshy little number …

Another Winnie & Walter scalloped pierced panel, cut from a piece of Distress Ink smooshed card … with a touch of gold thrown in for a bit of shimmer.  The gold isn’t too obvious here … you’ll see it better if you go in closer.  The Clearly Besotted dandelions were heat embossed in white, I added the simple sentiment (also CB), dotted over the piercings with a black fine liner and mounted the panel onto the card base with craft foam.

It’s joining in the fun at …

Time Out DT #87, Addicted to Stamps & More #249, Happy Little Stampers CAS – July, Virginia’s Summer Blog Party

Hello … bonjour!  We have a delicious new challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is CASE the Designer … and we get to CASE one of the amazing and super creative talents in this wonderful community … my lovely friend, Cornelia from Stempel Spass.  Cornelia’s fun, fabulous card is a little further down … here’s my take on it …  Time Out          

and here’s Cornelia’s creative cutie …

I didn’t stray too far from the original … a couple of Technique Tuesday Chickadees standing on an SSS sentiment … a stamped line from Papertrey and some die cut hugs and kisses from Winnie & Walter.  The chickadees were coloured with Zigs, coated with copious amounts of Wink of Stella and topped off with a layer of Glossy Accents each.  They’re positioned so that one can give the other a great big birthday mwah … or maybe whisper something about a surprise party!  Want to see a close up …

What will your creative imagination make of Cornelia’s card?  There’s so much to play with … the fun image, those vibrant greens, the wood slice background, that encouraging sentiment, the layout … what do you see?  Whatever it is, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!  This time round, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers who are offering a $15 GC to our winner (voted for by the DT) … and as usual, our winner will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at Time Out, along with lots of delicious inspiration from our wonderful DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Pooja from Reusing Cards & Quilling.  I’m pretty certain you’ll have come across and enjoyed visits with Cornelia and Pooja in blogland … if your haven’t (or even if you have), do go over and explore, say hello while you’re there … and enjoy every wonderful moment!
