I took the last two days off from pre-posting and blogging. But it's coming up on the weekend and that means Saturday is a challenge from Shannon's Sentiment, Sunday is I Did It Creations and Manly Monday (which I really like this card and hope you will too) My card is one of three for a challenge at Two Peas. The challenge was to use the same stamp three different ways. I think I may have taken the harder route for this because I was looking at another persons cards and she did the exact same layout for each one. I didn't do that. I read the challenge as use the same stamp three different ways and so here is my first way: (I will post my second way on Monday and third for Tuesday.) But on with the card:
I used the Bug stamp from UnityStamp Co. This doesn't look as cool photographed as it does in real life. I heat embossed the image on a marquee diecut made from my Cricut Stoybook cartridge. I used Versa Mark ink and Stampendous gold embossing powder. After it cooled I sprayed the diecut with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls in gold made by Ranger. Upon waiting for it to dry I took a large cardbase (well large for me 5x6.5) made by Halcraft and used a scrap of K&Co paper on the left and a new piece of Elle's Studio paper on the bottom right. I picked out the flowers where the pink and cream colored flowers are by the Oriental Trading Co and the sheer flower is by Prima. The marquee was dry so I wrapped Stampin' Up pink ribbon around the marquee in the middle and on top of that is ribbon by TPC and a brad from Making Memories. The letters below the ribbon are old ones from Current and the stamped letters on the license plate are from Lawn Fawn with ink by Stampin' Up. It's always so nice to use old products. Last thing I did was to put a Zot in the middle of the pink half of a flower and poured these little beads over it. You just kind of push them together and onto the glue dot until you are happy and clean up the rest for next time. I'm not sure who makes the beads because a friend gave me half of hers and it was a while back.
So today is Friday and for some it is only one more weekend and then back to school. Sorry to those of you. I hope you have a great weekend. I plan on hanging with some friends Friday and the Saturday so that will be good for my spirits.
