Day 5- 2 for 1

January 31, 2015
On day 5 of class there were two projects shown that I was able to complete without making to horrible a mess.  The first one is the circle card.  My first time making one of these and it will not be my last.  The blue panels that you see on the card were created by smooshing Memento’s Bahama Blue into the paper to get a good coverage and the orange heart uses Memento Tangelo.  The ring and center circles are popped up on foam tape and I used a white gelly roll pin for my white stitch lines around it mainly to cover a penciled circle that I couldn’t remove entirely.
 Circle of Thanks
Supplies used:
Paper: #110 Neenah Solar White Stamps: Mama Elephant Boutique Borders, Simon Says Stamp Winter Wishes;
Dies: Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles, Lawn Fawn stitched journaling card
Inks: Memento Bahama Blue, London Fog, Lady Bug, and Tangelo
Crisp Lines
The second card uses a technique called Ink Patterns.  I placed some post-it correction tape on a blank white panel in a design of my choosing and burnished the tape in good to
make sure it did not move during the inking process.  I blended my chosen distress inks until I was satisfied and then removed the correction tape and magic.  It looked pretty cool, but I could see where my tape did not match up exactly, so large stamp to the rescue.  I then die cut, placed a red mat behind it and popped it on some foam tape.
Supplies used:
Paper: #110 Neenah Solar White for base, #80 Neenah Solar White for focal, Gina K Red hot for Mat
Stamps: Tim Holtz Good Thoughts
Dies: Mama Elephant Peek A Frame
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Pickled Raspberry and Barn Door

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is going

    Both cards are great. I also enjoyed making a different
    shaped card.

      Camilla that is why I so love taking those classes since they stretch me to try things I normally would not do.

    Love the circular card! I can see it being a great Valentine's card as an archery target in reds and pinks. 🙂
