Cards from a crop


Some weeks ago I went to a crop on Orust with some of my scrappy friends. It was a lovely day, I had a lot of fun! Ususally I’m crazy productive on this yearly event but this year I only made three cards. I was not in the mood to make any LOs and I had the new Spectrum noir pencils to play with ;) Well, one card I already showed. But here are the two other cards. This first one was made for a challenge where the theme was something sweet. I was so happy with this card, I felt like I was channeling Julie Ebersole ;) Well, as close as I get to her, she is amazing and totally inspiring. :)


This other card were for a challenge where we was supposed to use stamps in ways we don’t usually use them. I saw an amazing card the day before, it might have been in the Studio Calico galleries. I was going to link up to it but well... this was weeks ago and I can’t find it now. Why can’t I just blog stuff as I make them? Anyhow, someone made a really cool card in black and white with a brush strokes stamp, I used mine to make stripes in black and gold on kraft cardstock, just masking a circle to place my foccal image on.  here is where I used my stamp in a different way, I stamped the Hero Arts typewriter on sticky back canvas and colored it with the Spectrum noir pencils. It looks kind of cool and the texture is nice.  Still not that happy about the card but it’s ok. I had fun making it anyways :)

There you go! Today I’m up at DESIGN in PAPERS showing my clear card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge last week. If you want more info on the products used for it go on over to DiP.

See you another day! Take care :)
