Did everyone have fun at our Easter Blog Hop? Lots of you won prizes and I know that's fun!
We really enjoyed putting the hop together, even though there were a few snags. We learned a lot from them, with your help of course!
We are now back to the regular way of doing challenges, where we actually tell you what the theme is!
We are going to POP IT which for our challenge means making something pop off the page, as in 3D or using pop dots or a folding card that pops up.
I hope you could see in the above snippet photo that I have popped up a couple of layers of those little flowers. But, more about my card later.
We must talk prizes first!! Our sponsors this week are:
Stitchy Bear Stamps will be giving away a $10 Gift Voucher for images by Stitchy Stamps, Floppy Latte Designs, Beary Dust Stamps.
Digis with Attitude is giving a $10 CAD ( Canadian Funds) Gift Certificate for their store.
Blackleaf Studios will be giving away the super cute "Welcome to the jungle" digital stamp set.
Yea! Great prizes aren't they?!!
I chose to use a Stitchy Bear Stamp called "Flapper" for my example, or inspiration card.
I used the Shaving Cream technique for the background which smells so good!
For the Flapper, I used my smallest stamp mounting block and inked it up good with Ranger Distress ink 'Scattered Straw'. I pressed it onto the very smooth card stock prior to printing the Flapper. I was at the printer with the black embossing powder to pour it on as the print came out. You can see some of the embossing in the snippet picture up top.
I decided to tear around the Flapper, instead of the usual straight cutting or die cutting. Then I painted the torn edges with the same Distress ink and topped it off with some Iridescent Medium. Love the sparkle it has. Of course I had to pop it up off the card. I have two layers of flowers popped up.
I have to admit, I'm pretty darn happy with the way this card turned out. *grin*
You have got to check out the Design Team's work at DYSU this week. Incredible!
