It's also another day of being creative for me, and being in Summer Camp has really been help in inspiring me to create some bright summery cards. I have two new cards to share today and both were created with the color inspiration we have this week at Card Camp.
The first card was also created for a challenge over at The Outlawz and it was based on the sketch, I shared yesterday. My image is another cute digi from Bugaboo Stamps and I used colored my little 'Surfer Boy' and used my ABS to spray paint the background. I also added some Glossy Accents to the water to add more shine and dimension.
I am submitting this card to each of these fun challenges and everyone is invited to play along:
- The Outlawz Challenge Group - Wednesday Sketch Challenge
- Scrapbook Sisters - Challenge # 42 - Summer Fun
- Bearly Mine Challenges - Challenge # 13 - Summer is Here
I chose to create a Symmetrical designed card, and mine started with this cute Digi Image created by Lori Boyd. There is a very touching story that goes along with this sweet image, which was created to raise awareness for a sweet little girl name Macie and you can read her store Here!!
And now I'm heading back to my craft desk to work on some more cards and especially excited because the mail just arrived and so did two new packages of craft goodies. I have two brand new Hero Arts Stamps to create with and both were bought after reading about how much Jennifer McGuire loved them!
I took advantage of the promo code she had shared on her blog, and went right over to Simon Say Stamps and placed my order. That was on Monday night, and my goodies are already here! These are the two newest stamps I have added to my collection and both were based on Jennifer's rave review --
I also received the stamps that I won on Bay, so needless to say, lots of fun new things for me to
I am back with an afternoon update and one additional card to share, which was inspired by Camp and also by this week's POM Challenge over at The Outlawz. This is a fun circular card and that was another type of design we learned about in our design video today. This was a very quick and easy card to make, as as the coloring was done with Distress Inks and I simply created a background with the inks, and then chose an image to stamp on top of the background. It's the same Hero Arts Stamp that I used on Monday, but used with a different technique. My card base was then created in bright pink, with a Grand Nestie Scalloped Circle Die set in my Grand Calibur. Once everything was dry, I used the largest die from the Lacey Circles Spellbinder Die to cut it out and then used Viva Decor Pearl Pens to add another level of dimension and color to my flowers.
And that's it for today, but I am looking forward to another FUN day tomorrow, and it's another day I'm free to create ALL day!!
