Hi back again with another homework assignment from Online Card Classes Insider class.
There were several acetate cards shown, but having none, I went for the inside out card. Basically leaving the outside fairly plain with the color on the inside showing through a cut out. The stamp set is an old one from Hero Arts, and the die used is from Spellbinders. Thanks for stopping by.
I love these classes at Online Card Classes, and I could not resist taking this quick 4 day course all about the card insides. I have a few of my card making supplies here in California, and I am doing my best with homework.
I decided to try a pop-up card. I made a card and then put together a pop-up for the inside. It took me a lot longer than I thought it would. I think I am missing hubs and my east coast craft room...
There were so many video's and card examples the first day, it was fantastic. Here is my card. Stamps and Dies from Simon Says Stamp. Thanks for stopping by.
I love this technique...it doesn't show the fabulous-ness well in photographs but in person its nice and sparkly. I placed a vinyl sticker on acetate, then on the backside I filled in the various spaces with quickie glue pen then dumped super fine glitter in the area. I repeated this until I had my image filled as I desired with various glitter colors. I let it dry and used heavy glue dots behind the glittered areas to attach it to my colored card layer.
It has been 1 year since my first blog post, and it has flown by. I will be having a little give-a-way for readers who leave comments once I return to Maryland late October.
My hands are full with moving projects while here in California. I am sneaking in some crafting here and there as reward for sorting and purging the stuff I have accumulated the last 30 years.
The card I am sharing today is going to Hubs, he is very supportive and takes an active interest in my card-making. (Love you darlin') Blue is my only concession to this being a guy card...and well the inside sentiment too! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
Since I have been in California, I met up with my friend and scrapbook pal for scrapbooking at the one scrapbook/stamp store that is just about equidistant from each of our houses. We made a day of it, meeting for breakfast first, then on to our crafting time. Hubs is so good about making sure that I have fresh flowers in the house often. This double page spread is a sampling of the bouquets he's brought home over the last few months.
A friend of mine was having a birthday, and of course a card was needed. I stamped and clear embossed the image. Then, decided to frame part of the image with an embossed paper layer. I think the embossing folder and the Hero Arts Stamp complimented each other nicely.
Saturday I participated again in another 90 minute scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr group. Our challenge was to incorporate washi tape in our project. I am flat out uncomfortable with washi tape. I love the look on cards. When I try to do artsy things with it and lay strips down and it just looks like a disaster. I had one roll of blue lined washi tape here in California. Here is my card:
I have neglected my blog for two weeks. I am in California house sitting for my Dad for several weeks. It has been a whirlwind so far, and I hadn't realized how much of my card making supplies have been moved to Maryland in the last year. I brought a few things with me, but some of my inks seem to have dried out. BOO! Never-the-less, I do have some projects to share this week. On 8-29-13 I participated in a Hero Arts Scramble, the scramble challenge was to make a masculine card using colors of a favorite sports team. Hubs is a fan of both the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens. I decided the orange and brown of Cleveland definitely would make a better masculine card than the purple black and gold of the Ravens. It took me almost the full 90 minutes to make this card, photograph it and upload it. I felt completely out of my element here in California.
