Some more challenges!




Can you believe it? Two posts in one day! Woo Hoo! I did another double duty card combining two challenges. One challenge was sponsored by Allison over at the "Stampin' When I Can"blog( http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/2010/01/everything-old-is-new-again-challenge.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+StampinWhenICan+%28Stampin%27+When+I+Can%29). The challenge is to use a stamp that had been collecting dust in your stash. I pulled out an oldie by "Me and my Big Ideas" by Inkadinkado. The other challenge is sponsored by Card Patterns Sketch #47( http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2010/01/sketch-47.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FaYJY+%28CardPatterns%29).
To make the card I first used some orange DCWV cardstock cut to the standard A2 card size with the fold on the top. I then used my Big Shot with the Cuttlebug "Spots & Dots" embossing folder to emboss the front of the card. Next I cut a journal tag from a page in the Cosmo Cricket Paper Pad called "Get Happy". I stamped the boy with presents image(Me & My Big Ideas by Inkadinkado) directly onto the journal tag using black Versafine ink. I then colored parts of the image with Marvy Uchida markers. I then cut a black mat for the journal tag and attached it with adhesive. Then I cut two more journal tags and stamped the bottom image from the stamp set called "Two You" by Stampendous' Perfectly Clear Stamps. The "oh" in the top square was hand drawn and colored with markers and clear Stardust gel pen. I also colored these with the Marvy brush markers. These were attached to the larger image as shown. I then attached these images to the card plus cut a border from the paper pad to add to the right edge of the card. I also added some clear stardust gelly roll ink to parts of the images, but it is hard to see in my scan. For the inside of the card, I followed the theme from the front of the card. I cut the border and the "oh" from the paper pad. I then stamped another stamp from the same set on another journal paper and colored with markers. I finished by adding some stamped images to the envelope. Thanks for stopping by.
