Hope you all have had a great weekend. I have been busy redoing some storage in my studio for my dies. and I am almost finished. After that project is done it will be time to go thru my stamps and get some ready for a used stamp sale at Simply Said Rubber Stamps. I have so many that I can get rid of, it's going to be hard to sell them individually, so I am going to bag them up in lots to try to move the stamps that way.
Today I took some time to make a few cards for club. Last month we were given a small bag of goodies to use on a card (or cards) of our own design to be presented at this months meeting.The bag contained a small frame of stars made from white cs, two round things that are made by Scotch and are called ribbon, wire, string tie downs, two ribbon slides in a green turquoise colored cs and a small silver charm. OK, here are the two cards that I came up with.
On this card, those strips of white stars that appear in a line shooting out from the large silver star were originally the rectangular frame shape. I just cut them apart and attached them behind that large silver star. I used a hand punch and a Spellbinders die and added silver stars in a few other sizes, and attached them to the dark blue cs. I then added a border made up of a layered light blue piece that is cut from another Spellbinders die and underneath that is a strip that comes from a MS punch around the page punch. Finally the sentiment is stamped on white cs, using Spellbinders Labels One and the silver piece behind that label is a Spellbinders Labels Two shape, cut from silver cs.This card is a 6.25" square cut from cream cs, with a light blue cs and dark blue cs panels that are mounted askew on the main card.
Below, my second card, uses the turquoise small round plastic pieces that are called a ribbon, string, wire tie downs. That little round tie-down made me think of a flower center. Let me show you this card:
A few weeks or so ago, I saw some flowery looking embellishments on Desire Fourie's blog. Check these cool paper folded embellies here. She always has some awesome cards on her blog, check her blog here. I decided that those cute flower embellies made a great addition and I felt they might work with the tie down items I had to work with.
(The embellishment below the feathers is made the same as those on the side of the card, however, the center is a faceted brad.)
The next item on this card, used from the bag of goodies, is the square ribbon slide, and I positioned it between the two flower embellies. The last item I had to use is that small silver metal charm with the word Hope inscribed on it and I positioned it to hang from the ribbon slide.
Those feathers are from a template that I happened upon online a while back. I love that I can color them any color and then cut them out and use them on any project.
Well hope you enjoyed my club challenge creations I made for my monthly club meeting.
