Here are two more creations I managed to squeak in this week all the while having a fabulous visit with my little sister Nina! I’ll save all the visit photos etc later on when I can process them. In the meantime:
Day 159 – the requirements were:
Create TWO opposite combinations on your card -- the combos you choose are up to you.
My opposites turned out to be the keys on this card – one is small, one big – one old, one new.
I must confess I really struggled with this one. I’d have hid it under bed or something haha, but I am determined to finish up my challenges – besides beauty is in the eye of the beholder and perhaps someone will really love this one.
The stamp was a Tim Holtz from his Components Collection. I mounted it on cork. I cut the keys out on my silhouette SD. I cut some black lace out (did you know you can cut wide lace using a rotary blade cutter?) I then layered on a sheer ribbon and added some wooly thread. I wrote the sentiment by hand.
Day 161 – the requirements were:
Create at least one balloon on your card using an item or object that wasn't originally intended to be a balloon.
I was tickled that my sister played along with me on this one – check out her card HERE! Here is my take on this:
Well, I probably failed at making something that wasn’t a balloon in the first place into one – just could not think one up so anyways I used something new to make the centre one. Nina and I checked out a few Scrapbook Stores and I treated myself to some Be Creative Glue sheets and used my Silhouette SD to cut the balloon template out. It will take me a few tries to get this down to a science, but its fun.
I love the look of it! I also cut the two other balloons out using my Sil and then I stamped them with a Versamark Dazzle, sprinkled them with Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder.
More cards to come. Hope you all are having a terrific summer. I hope to take a day out soon to catch up on my email and blog hopping and hope to visit YOU and to add more goodies to my “vault”!
