There's a new challenge just starting over at Less is More and this time we have a Theme for you. We'd like you to include on your creation...
Something that Pops / Bangs
I had lots of ideas for this one but nothing much of help in my stash. I did however manage three samples for you although not overly happy with two of them. Once again, the last one I made is my favourite, this firework card.
Super simple to make. I stamped the fireworks in three colours (the majority of which are actually stamps from a dandelion set!), added the sentiment in black and simply adhered the panel to the card base on 3D foam.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Dandelion Dreams, Window Dressing and It's a Celebration
- Ink: Versa Color - Opera Pink, Boysenberry and Mountain Lake
I'm going to link this one up over at Time Out Challenges to continue on with Sandie's birthday celebrations where the theme is CAS with the option of using purple.
I wanted to make a card featuring a Christmas cracker but was sure I didn't have any cracker images in my stash until I spotted this teeny one. I'm not overly happy as it's not an image of it actually bursting but you get the idea!
I stamped the little cracker in VersaMark before heat embossing in gold. I then masked it to stamp the bursting image behind in silver. I then stamped the sentiment, also embossed in gold before die cutting with a pierced square die. The cracker was coloured with ProMarkers and I used a co-ordinating cardstock to frame the square before adhering to the card base on 3D foam.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Arctic Animals (cracker), Little Elves (sentiment), Dandelion Dreams
- Ink: VersaMark
- Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
- Die: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Squares
- Coloured with ProMarkers
I loved the idea of this card but don't love the end result as it didn't translate how I saw it in my head. Two for one on this one though, the champagne popping and someone has obviously popped the question for there to be an engagement! Go me lol!
I started by die cutting the heart from a piece of red cardstock and gently marked with a pencil where this would sit on the card base. Next I stamped the sentiment and the bottle, which I fussy cut as I didn't want the white edging left by the co-ordinating die. I placed the bottle roughly where I wanted it and then masked a section of a stencil to create the bubbles. The bottle was then popped up on 3D foam.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Mr & Mrs, Je T'aime
- Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versa Color - Silver, Atlantic
- Stencil: Dutch Doobadoo - Wavy Stripes
- Coloured Cardstock: Papermania
My teamies have made some great cards this week so please do pop over and visit their personal blogs. I'm sure you'll come up with some great ideas which will be translated much better than my cards this week!
