I was flipping through the Sunday Target ad and I saw this:
Please excuse the photo- it is a dark and dreary day here and I'm having a really hard time with my lighting in my photos. I don't know why but when I saw this ad I immediately thought of using the ideas to make cards. Here is card #1:
And here it is open:
I went out of bounds on my card- I didn't want to be constrained! Mostly what I used is a lot of punches-1/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/4", 1 3/4" circles, word window, Round Tab (#119864), and the Circle Scissors Plus cutter (#112530). If you look really closely you can see I used the negative of the scallop punch as a stencil for the waves for my whale. The card stock is Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Tempting turquoise, Whisper White. I used Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, and Basic Black Stamp pads. I used Fox and Friends, again, for the whale. That little set is getting a lot of use lately! The greeting is from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes.
My next card is here:
The little owls are so in right now and the Owl Builder punch (#118074) makes this easy! The branches are from my Sizzix Little Leaves Sizzlet Die (#114511). My colors here are Wild Wasabi, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Whisper White. The only ink pad I used for this card is the Basic Black! I made a diagonal dry embossed background that you may be able to see using my Simply Scored tool. I put my corners on the black line that I showed you previously and scored at every 3/4", turned the card and repeated. Stampin' Up is going to release a new diagonal plate for the Simply Scored tool soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
