Well what are Saturday’s for anyway, and my sister was up for making a couple more cards so….
I’ll start with a simple one that my sister Nina egged me to try – well, she’s a “Glamette” – well, best you let HER explain that to you, but basically it means her card was picked as a fave for The Friday Mashup #20, Who’s Got That Special Cupcake by their Glam Squad. Yay Neen! (that's my sister waaaahooo!) So as she rides on a cloud of fame and fortune she dared me to give it a go – and I 'go-ed’!
Friday Mashup – 21 Let’s Get a Little Sketchy
My SIMPLE take:
I don’t know the brands of designer paper, just tried to use up bits I had. The sentiment is Fiskars “Just Between Friends”
I made this flower a few weeks back – there were designs for them in a magazine. I was glad i found a place to use this up It was quite easy to make, just cut out 8 circles at 1”, folded 7 of them in a triangular fashion and glued them fast to the last circle. A shiny button completes it nicely. (I can see my refleeeection in there haha!)
Next is today’s 365 challenge
Day 180 – Challenge Combo
I chose from:
Day 80 - Cute cuts
All you need to do is take some stamped, handwritten, computer generated, etc. (whatever method you can think of) letters and cut them out individually as part of your sentiment
Day 122 - Feeling Fuzzy
This challenge is about giving some element of your card a "fuzzy" feel to it.
Day 140 - Raised Up
This challenge is all about giving dimension to an image.
Whether stamped or digi raise up two different parts of the image off the page.
And here’s my version of these all squashed with a fork and mished up!
This photo really does not reflect the true colors of my card well. It really does look like a chalkboard with an eraser. Obviously the ‘cuts’ are the lettering. The ‘fuzzy’ are also the lettering and the bottom of the eraser because they are cut from fuzzy vinyl using my Silhouette. The dimension is the apple – it is raised above the card, then the leaf is layered above that.
It was fun thinking up the eraser, I had it all done and then my husband said I should ‘smear’ the chalk behind the eraser. He’s right 99.999 % of the time. The ‘chalk’ is actually a pastel pencil, the chalk-board is black cardstock.
I ♥ my apple. I designed this apple for YOU and it will be available both here on this main page and then again in my archives as well. K, about the apple. I cut it out using my Silhouette and then I stamped the red fruit and the green leaf with my Versamark Shimmer, embossed with clear and then used some Glossy Accents to make it all shiny. It actually looks much prettier in life – it was still tacky when I was taking photos.
So, I figured if I was going to take all that effort to create a unique apple design, why not share with YOU ? So, I’m posting it here, for your enjoyment. All I ask is that if your fingers are not chopped off, arthritic, in gloves due to cold, texting or something important that you could leave me a comment/hug below and that you credit me when you use them. Please do not share the download link, it will always be free here – but please send your friends directly here to scoop it themselves. It will be in the freebies tabs up top! I’ve made these files available in a multitude of file formats – something for everyone. These should easily work for your cutting machines.
Hows them apples? *giggle* Just click on the preview graphic to download – all files are in a single zipped folder. And psssst – there must might be another sweet tasting graphic for YOU next post!
