Happy Friday everyone. Nugget, my dog, got me up at 7 this morning - I do believe she is worse than any of my kids. However, since she is a 16 year old lab and doesn't talk back, we let her slide and even spoil her a bit!
This week at PaperCutz Challenge the challenge is a pretty easy one - anything goes! Can't get any easier than that...I've been playing with some new products and my sample this week uses "build a blossom" from LaPashe that are available here. I used a chrysanthemum on my card:
Cheryl also got in another LaPashe product "Nice and Easel which create 3D scenes for easel cards. There is also a smaller 3D image for a second card. I chose to make my easel cards 6" x 6" to allow me to mat the image.
I'm hoping you can see some of the dimension better in this picture. The images had to be hand cut, which can be tedious, but this way I didn't have to worry about the leftover "nibs" from punch out pieces. Each of the roses has at least one layer. The bottom left rose has 3 layers so I used 1/16th foam dots for lift. The saying on the bottom of the card is also part of the package.
This last card is made from the smaller pieces of a different Nice and Easel sheet.
I still had some alcohol inked vellum left from my previous post and thought it went well with these flowers. I ran each piece through my Xyron so I didn't need to worry about adhesive showing through. The bird embellishment is from a 12" border set from K and Co. Most of my supplies are actually for scrapbooks, but it is fun to see how to "downsize" these pieces for cards as I did here. More bang for my buck; if you've been reading previous posts, you know I hate to waste anything, even the packaging sometimes.
All of these cards are samples on display at Cheryl's store, Inspired Designs. When they come down from display and if they are still in good condition, they go into my Operation Write Home box.
As always, please leave a comment, good or bad, I learn from them all! Why don't you play along this week at PCC? Remember, anything goes!
Have a great week!
