Always Be You - Color Dare #253

On Facebook I had seen some cards with the Rediform Technique and went to YouTube for a tutorial...there are so many but I did my card using the instructions by Lisa Furbush "Creating a Rediform Background".  Somewhat modified and used many of my stamps in the colors for this week's ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #253.  Fun Card to create.  

My white strips were too thick and bold for me ... and since Gold was an option ... decided to cover them with Gold Glitter Tape.  Cutting the width at 1/4" there was an 1/8" strip left over and wished I had used them instead.  However, the tape would not come off clean ... wished I had experiemented before adhering the tape ... lesson learned for the next time.  The images were stamped with Slate Ink after stamping once to soften the color.  



This month we are challenging you to using the color palette from the "Prickly Pear" paper pack and the Color Challenge for this week is: Poppy, Tangerine, Willow, Glacier, Slate, White Daisy with Optional Gold. If you don’t have these CTMH colors you may substitute similar colors. Hop on by and see the many inspirational cards by our DT and other entrants.  

Reminder: Click on side bars for Color Dare SNEAK PEEKS for future July color challenges so you can plan ahead ... and join the Buddy Program, and help your Buddy enter a project as well. 



For the inside of the card I used the same technique on the border.  It was when I tried the 1/8" strip of gold glitter tape on the white strips I wanted to dismantle my card and use them on the front.

Together - AHSC #221

Have a new rose die purchased from Paper Smooches which I thought it would look good in this sketch ... and chose the Charlotte paperpack because of the variety of design papers and zip strips for the banners.  

Die Cut both size of the Roses in Sorbet cardstock and design paper and pieced together. Since I didn't have any green in my design papers the stem and leave were cut in Sorbet and Whisper cardstock. For the sentiment used one of the zip strips that had words and adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape so that the banners, cut from either design paper or zip strips, were slipped into the bottom of the sentiment and adhered.  


My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #221. Join this challenge...you have until Sunday, July 23rd to enter your project.  

The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday, so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge...and stop by every Monday for new sketches. Don't wait for the DT post to create your project...show us up with your artwork.  


Added a diagonal border of design paper layered with black to the back.  Used the other reverse small rose for the inside corner of my card.

H2H July Wk 3 - Merry Everything

My Design Team Card for Heart2Heart Challenges was combined with Tuesday Morning Sketch #411 "Christmas in July", but flipping sketch upside down.  


This week's Challenge is all about "In Stitches".  Maybe it's technique time or maybe you need to scrapbook a moment that had you "in stitches" Or heaven forbid someone actually had medical stitches.  It wasn't a difficult choice for me to put stitches on my card because a lot of my frame dies have stitches.  Chose some pretty design papers from one of my favorite chirstmas paper packs "White Pines" (a retired paperpack which I loved so much got a couple of packets and still have a lot of my stash). 



  

I did several different color cuts on the glowing candle die and patiently pieced them together.  Added some red berries to the foliage.  Sentiment was stamped on design paper in cranberry ink, corners snipped and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.

AHSC #220 - Thank You

This card was created using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #220 combined with Three Amigos Bloghop Challenge "Prickly Pear Inspiration" and Paper Smooches "Anything Goes" and "Aug Guest Designer Search".  Please stop by these challenges to see the inspiration projects from DT and entrants.  

Chose the small floral print from "Prickly Pear" and Paper Smooches "Garden Blooms" die which was a perfect match as a focal. The Blooms were die cut from design paper and the banner from another design paper which was a great contrast between the two. My first sentiment was black, but it was too dark and distracted from the Blooms, so I cut a second sentiment and adhered over the black leaving a shadow. 




Join us at AHSC...you have until Sunday, July 16th to enter your project. The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge...and stop by every Monday for new sketches. Don't wait for the DT post to create your project...show us up with your artwork.





When I picked up my negative of the Garden Blooms to throw out, or put in my stash for a later use...WOW, I can use this now for the inside border of my card.  So I put another strip of design paper in back of the negative and it was a nice contrast and blend for the front of my card.

This week's Challenge is all about "Oh the Places".  Maybe it's a take on Dr. Seuss's famous book or some of your recent travels.

This card was created using the color theme from Seize the Birthday "Red, White and You". Dr. Seuss, one of my daughter's favorite books as a child...so what better than The Cat in the Hat SVG File...and the Artist is Melissa Deuss from Kadoodle Bug Design. Wow, lots of small pieces and layers...but with a little patience got it together.   The rest of the card came together real easy.  




On the inside of the card die cut a couple more of the Bam Bubbles and adhered to the corner.

Love this color combination and used a AHSC sketch, some new dies and Paper Fundamentals design papers.  Peeking behind the the sentiments is one of the design sheets from "Prickly Pear".  The black background just seemed to make everything else pop.  

 


On the inside of the card I just added along the edge the bright yellow and black panels.

Instead of several cut banners on this sketch ... chose a pastel wood pattern with several colors and cut each piece of wood for the appearance as banners.  The other side of the wood pattern was a very pretty floral pattern which I used as my background.  Chose one of my favorite dies "Swirly Bird Ribbon", cut two colors and filled in with the second color, and added foliage in place of the ribbon.  


The other side of the design paper cut for the fencing was used for the inside bottom of the card base.

No Worries CTMH paperpack definitely has the design papers for "No Worries" so it was an easy choice for the H2H theme.  A few cuts, a few border stitches and the card came together quite fast.  Using one of the PML cards an arrow was fussy cut and stamped with "Aloha"
