When I first saw the photo inspiration for today's Scramble, I was a bit flustered, as my first thought had me thinking I might need to sew something...and sadly that is one talent that this girl to not have. I greatly admire those who sew, but it's not for me and even though I have owned a sewing machine for years, I'm lucky if I can repair a simply seam! As it turns out, there was not any sewing involved - Phew!! After linking from Pinterest back to the site of the creator - Charming Zebra, I realized that this cute wreath has been created without doing any sewing. It's actually a really cute idea and fun that Tina shared it with us today, as our Inspiration image for the Scramble. Don't you just LOVE Pinterest, I sure do!
After taking a few minutes to look more at the image, I knew I wanted to make a circular shaped card to start and I would use my Cameo to create it. I quickly found a card design I had already created and adjusted the size to use it for my card base, which I cut from Hero Arts Soft Pool Layering Paper. I also cut a smaller inner circle and scalloped circle in Pink Bubblegum Dots paper from Memory Box and sat down to put a card together. I knew I would not have enough time to make flowers, so I grabbed some Prima Roses from my Stash and glued them on the side of my card. I tied on a pink bow and added my Sentiment, which is from the Hero Arts - Find Joy set. This was my completed card and I had it done and uploaded with time to spare.
Once I realized I had more time, I went right to work on my second card, which was totally inspired by Tina's card, which you'll see on her blog HERE! I really love the Flower Dot Pattern Stamp and wanted to try and make a card that was similar to hers. I did finish my card and changed some things, for the sake of time, but in the end, I'm not loving it, but you get the idea. I will plan to try my best to CASE Tina's card at another time, since I really loved hers.
As you can see I used slightly different colors and knowing I would not have time to make my roses, I used a Stampin' Up punch. I also colored some of the pattern on the stamp with my Copics to tie in all the colors, but in my rush, my coloring is not so hot, so I think that kind of ruined my card! Even so, it really loved playing and find every scramble to be a lot of fun.
I have one more card to share today and this one was created for today's new Paper a La Mode Challenge being hosted at The Outlawz. Our challenge today was to create a project with a Quote/Saying is the main focal point and I started by actually looking through some of my digital sentiments/quotes and found the perfect one for my card. My card base created from some My Mind's Eye cardstock, that I just happened to find at our local Marshall's the other day. I also picked up awesome black metal newspaper type rack in the clearance section and it's perfect for storing 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock! I love finding bargains and those were my two best deals this week! WooHOO!!
Now I am off to clean up my desk and make something for a quick dinner!! I'm thinking a nice bowl of yummy oatmeal topped with Blueberries. Yummy and one of my favorite quick dinners, and also healthy too!
Hope you are all having a nice weekend and to those of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Easter - Happy Spring -- Happy Happy Everything!!!
