Finally I dare to take cardmaking challenge again. This time it is from my favorite paper crafting supplier: Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 7th anniversary this year and planning to post creative challenges. The first challenge I join in is their very first “Timer Challenge”. I had 7 minutes to grab 7 ingredients and create a project within 17 minutes. Indeed not easy, especially when I had to choose ONLY 7 supplies. So, here it is…
I thought of using only 1 type of paper and decided to not take the complimentary dies, because I needed 1 more ingredient to finish up my card. So, I cut out the flowers just with scissors and therefore could use some pearls. I am happy with the result.
Oh my… it’s already Friday. Time flies and I had another busy week as end of kids’ school term nears. There were more activities outside school lately. Outing, fun projects, preparation for farewell party, etc. But today, I finally had time to organize a bit of my ink pad collections. I managed to make new Color Swatch. This was fun! I will post this one later. Now it’s time for Case Study Challenge Card!
A beautiful card with white embossing background. I was thinking… shall I “case” her with the same idea? Typical me… I like to search for other possibilities, but still using the same inspirations. So, today I made 2 cards with embossing on the background without using embossing powder.
I used embossing folder and the letterpress technique. I colored the embossing folder with Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Cantaloupe and I am very happy how it turned out. Here are the supplies to make this card:
Pattern Paper: North Country (Prima), Splash (Echo Park). Stamps: Heart-2-Heart #11 (Papertrey Ink) Dies: Circle Scalloped & Circle Dies (Spellbinder), Small Hearts Dies set (SSS) Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), Chocolate Chip (Stampin’ Up), Soft Cantaloupe (Hero Arts) Miscellaneous: White ribbon (PTI) and Herringbone Embossing folder (Cuttlebug), dimensional stickers.
Since I had fun with the first card, I decided to make another one:)
Almost forgot to mention… I plan to send the first card for Maddy. Still have to think what to write to her.
Just a short note. I had a busy week that I had no time to make a single card. Finally, this evening I could bring my youngest love one early to bed, so I could make 2 cards for the next Case Study Challenge. I love the cards Lisa Spangler made. They are so pretty and the colors are great! Also all the cards from Case Study Team are wonderful. Very inspiring. Now, it is my turn to share my cards with you. Thank you for stopping by….
For the first card I used White Cardstock from PTI, Sentiment stamp from Beautiful Butterfly Stamp set (PTI), Versamark ink, Spunky Nature Stamp set (My Cute Stamps), clear embossing powder, Twine and a white button and inkpads from various suppliers.
For the second card, I used white cardstock (PTI), Beautiful Butterfly (PTI)-love this one very much, inkpads from PTI and Stampin’ Up and Heart dies from Simon Says Stamp.
