I haven’t taken a lot of time lately to play along with many challenges, but when I saw the Mojo Monday Sketch today I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Several months ago I had picked up some shaker components from Queen & Company – they just happened to be a star shape, so I immediately reached for them, unfortunately the seed beads and my acetate have a little static attraction. The B&T paper is from the Dreamin’ Big Paper Packet from Close to My Heart when I was creating with it the other day it reminded me of constellations. I wanted one last star effect for this card so I reached for the Star Confetti Embossing Folder.
I had a great time playing with an old challenge. Take a minute and leave me a comment and why not step outside your box and play along with a challenge today!
Welcome to the Joyful Stars February Blog Hop. If you’ve come here from Nickie’s blog you are on the right path, but if you’re starting here that’s fine, too. We’re a circular hop so keep clicking on the links at the end of each post and eventually you’ll end up right where you started.
This month I’m featuring a card using the February Stamp of the Month – Easter Bunny. This set includes a bunny family, a basket and some adorable sentiments all for just $5 US with a qualifying purchase.
My card was inspired by one from my friend Debi – we exchange Stamp of the Month cards and I loved the one she made me so once again I copied selectively (mostly the dots paper from the Dreamin’ Big paper packet).
I decided that I would do a swing card cut from the Cricut Artistry cartridge – there’s a selection of swing cards and using the Cricut makes it so easy! I have a list of the coordinating shapes so layered up a few papers and as Mumfred the Magician from Sesame Street would say “a la peanut butter sandwich” I had a cute card with wow factor.
The fun thing about the swing card is when you open it the image changes – in this case to the sentiment.
