Yayyyyy - I ROCKED the mashup 122 and now my sidebar is sporting the “I Rocked” sticker thing. Too cool, seeing as its been forever since I took part in a challenge. Thanks to the design team for selecting me.
Its been a while for me to take up a challenge and my sister Nina said SHE was going to do one … and the hankering got to me so I whipped together a Friday Mashup card:
So, this week it was all about TAGS. Here are the choices we were given:
- Create a project with a "Tag (as an embellishment on you rproject or as the project itself )."
- Create a project using the colors "Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Sky, Primrose Petals & Bermuda Bay".
- Or Mash it Up and create a project "with a Tag using the color combo above".
And here is what I managed to do with that:
So, that was about as close as I could come with the theme and the colors.
Cardstock - Hero Arts - Hero Hues
Cardstock - We R Memory Keepers - textured cardstock pad
Stamp - Studio G
Embossing Folder - Anna Griffin - Foulard
Circle Doilies2 cutting file by Bird
I cut a cardstock face to 4.24 x 5.5 inches and embossed it.
The tag, now that’s a funny story, my sister Nina gave it to me from a clothing item she bought. I saw possibilities right away, just was not sure when I would use it. Once I saw this challenge I knew this was it.
I painted the tag over the logos using a warm white acrylic and let that completely dry. I stamped it with the birthday greeting. I was happily surprised how fine it is to stamp onto canvas! (filing that info away into the creative tools portion of my brain)
Next I cut out Bird’s GORGEOUS Doilys2 file to the size I wanted, leaving a bit of space on either side so that I then cut a simple scallop out of the peachypink cardstock and layered it behind.
While cutting those two items out I used Flower 1021 and Flower 1022 from the Silhouette online store. I designed a hole into the middle of each, sized them three different sizes. They are about 3/4 to 1 inch.
I designed my own little “anchor button” and cut out two for each flower. Then I threaded up a bit of crochet thread and I threaded it through one side of the button, down thru the flower, out through and back the second button and all the way back to the other side of the first button so that I could anchor the flower together and be able to make a sweet little bow in the middle of each blossom.
Then I assembled the whole works with glue and glue dots and foam tape in copious amounts.
I’m providing the little anchor button for YOU to download if you wish. This is sized tiny for small flowers but if you’re an experienced Cammy-user you could easily resize (keep in mind to ungroup and only expand the OUTSIDE so the holes stay nice and small)
