Good morning all,
First of all welcome to a new Challenge over at the
Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog
And secondly Ola from Spain....
We are currently have a few days away playing in the sun with the little man...
Our new theme today is
Different shape or folded cards
And our hostess is my lovely friend
Now I don’t normally make many shaped cards so this was a bit of a challenge for me
But so much fun...
I had no idea where I was going
I just started playing....
And this is what I ended up with...
I hope you like it
If you would like to see what the other dt have created
Just pop over here
To create mine I started with a new die that I had recently bought...
And just cut out a few shapes...
I think I will be using this again and again..
I then got two 6x6 card blanks
And cut some corners off
Until I liked the shape, and glued them together .
Then I cut some matts and layers
And started to add some colour,
So out came my distress Oxide inks
I added some ink to my mat, spritzed with water and then dipped the card in,
I added one colour at a time and dried with a heat tool , before adding the next colour
And then some splats off ink , and more drying with the heat tool
Look what a difference it makes to add some ink around the edges of the card .
On separate card I stamped the sentiment and some butterflies, added some colour and then cut them out.
To add some interest in the card blank itself , I just randomly added some splat stamping
I did this on both sides
Then attached the toppers...
I was really pleased with how this base was looking
Then I added some of the die cut shapes....
Followed by the butterflies,
And some liquid pearls....
This is the view of the back ,
The front ,
And finally when dry , I added some bakers twine ,
A totally unique and made up card shape...
And all done by eye....
( so don’t look to close ..!!!!)
I hope you have a lovely weekend planned ...
I had better go...
More walks on the beach planned....
and more splashing in the pool
And more cocktails...
Don’t worry Elliot only had a banana milk shake
Take care all..
Much love and hugs
OMG your card is so, so awesome! Thanks for sharing all the How-To's! Cocktails and splashing in the water sounds like a perfect day to me!! Hope you're enjoying!
Thanks Darlene, back home now,,but got lots of wonderful memories...oh and photos...xx
What a fantastic card, love the unusual shape and the Oxide background is beautiful. That blue cocktail looks yummy! Glad you enjoyed your holiday. XX
I'm lazy therefore don't write too many comments. However I loved this so much I just had to tell you - I love the way you write the instructions as well easy for even an idiot like me to follow. Glad you managed a few days off I'm sure after the move you needed it. I hve recently been comtempalting moving but decided it's too much of a hassle. I just don't think I could keep my house clean enough to show perple around and as for my attic that would need a removal van all of its own. Love your work so glad you havent gone all groovy.
Thanks Donna, hope you are keeping well....xx
Hi Frances, thank you so much for leaving your comment. I do love to read them.
The house move was so stressful, and yes So much clutter and rubbish was either given away, recycled or went to the tip... the holiday was just what we needed....now back to tackle my long list of jobs in the craft room...all the best....xxx
