Over at StampTV, Tami Mayberry has a Mix It Up Monday inspiration challenge. Gina K Designs just exploded with a fabulous new collection of patterned papers as well as stamp sets for this month.
How gorgeous is this??? I don't have this paper pak yet...and I love the heart pattern Gina has created here. So, I created my own "patterned" paper using the tiny heart from this fabulous stamp set by Tami. Join the challenge and play along. Here's my card:
Like most of you, I don't have much time to play in as many of the challenges I'd like to....I've seen some awesome creations out there and am in awe of all you talented ink and paper artists...not having the time but still wanting to play along, I decided to do a quick and easy card for two challenges this week.
Outlawz Sunday CAS and the challenge that Diana has given us is Welcome in the New Year with a fresh clean start and a fresh clean card. Use a white base and no patterned paper. (You may use other colors of card stock and embellies.) If you're like me and you LOVE patterened papers this was a true challenge!!!
the other challenge I'm entering my card in is CR84FN #45 color challenge and I LOVE the colors they've selected for this challenge...
The card base is 5x5 Gina K Pure Luxury White. The first layer is Core'dinations run through the CB PolkaDot EF, and lightly sanded. (The shade of aqua on those dots is from the sander....there was a little "Tumbled Glass" ink left and I hadn't cleaned it yet - good oops....I Iiked it!). The side was layered with soft yellow corrogated paper. I distressed both layers with Antique Linen DI. Behind the focal image is a circle cut with a Spellbinder Scalloped Circle on another piece of the same Core'dinations paper after being run through another CB folder (Musical Flouishes) and lightly sanded (cleaned the sander). The image is a WIN from DenamiDesign stamps (love it) and the sentiment was stamped with "Celebrate in Style" by GKD. I colored the dress with two Copic Markers E30 and YR30. I added some dyed seam binding and some felt flowers I cut with a die from PTI. The big button is from Webster's Pages. Also used was a MS edger punch "Foot Lights" and Stickles "Tiara" for the necklace. (thanks, Shirl)
Thank you for stopping by and best wishes for all good things in 2012!!!
