Hi friends! It's finally the weekend. It seems like it took so long to get here. I just ordered some new crafty supplies and I'm excitedly waiting for them to arrive. As you know my mojo has been running on low for a few days now. The trip to AC Moore helped, but now it's time for my monthly one time - big time order to arrive. Do you do that too? I like to order my stuff from one place if I can help it...hence the one time-big time order.
While I'm waiting...I had enough mojo to make a new card. This one is for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 95. It's from our talented friend Karin and it's perfect for what I love to do the most...layering! Here's Karin's sketch for this week.
Here's my project for this week. I was looking at the sketch and had an idea for the top portion of the card. Instead of having an entire strip of a different patterned paper over the main panel, I heat embossed this...
It's actually one corner of an image from Florentine Frippery. It's my favorite set from the last release. I inked a corner of the image and stamped it repeatedly to make it look like a "banner" on the top portion of my main panel.
I die cut a tag and adhered a strip of My Mind's Eye patterned paper on it and stamped a border on top and bottom of the patterned paper strip. Then I inked the edges and tied some light blue twine through it.
I also stamped and hand cut this label from Florentine Frippery and added my sentiment from Fancy Phrases.
For my embellishments, I stamped this cameo from Cameo to Go and hand cut it as well. Then I added some fabric flowers and tucked them under the label. I topped them off with this glittered star. I also thought that since the right side was a little full of embellishments, the left side looked unbalanced. So added the little gems from Bazzill to even things out.
I hope you've enjoyed my card for this week. I would love to see your take on our sketch this week. Please come and play with the Mischief Makers over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. See you there!
