The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is to make a card from a sketch and if possible share the link to the sketch you used. I have a card sketch board on Pinterest and decided to use this pin to make my card.
Here's the sketch below.
Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with. Then link up your card of your favorite sketch for a chance at bragging rights.
The new challenge on the Cards in Envy is asking for one layer cards (base does not count). I have been playing around with Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper and thought this background would work great with my Koi fish stamps.
This is from the Club Scrap Surprise Kit. I love this sentiment on the card. Hop on over to the Cards in Envy Blog and check out what the other design team members came up with. Then link up your Birthday cards with us.
There is a new challenge over on the Cards in Envy blog. Create a card using a negative space of a die or a punch.
I don't have a card to show you this time - I am taking a break from this challenge. My husband and I are moving my in-laws into Assisted Living and the pace is fast and furious to get all the paperwork and packing done to move them.
I'll see you at the next challenge.
But in the meantime please checkout what the other Design Team members have done with this challenge on the Cards in Envy blog and then link up your card with negative die cuts or punches.
Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog. This time we want you to create cards without any patterned paper. Of course, solid paper is Okay. Think out of the box and make your own background. Here is my handmade background card.
I created this background by cutting out two of the gear die-cuts and gluing them to card stock. I then applied foil tape over the top and used a bone folder to show the relief of the gears. The alcohol Ink was applied over the foil to give it texture and color. The images are from the Club Scrap Steamworks stamps and hybrid digital kit. The sentiment is from Great Impressions.
Come check out what the other Design Team members came up with on the Cards in Envy blog. Then link up your cards made with no patterned paper.
If you like steampunk you will like the current Club Scrap kit called Steamworks. There's a Linky Party tomorrow on the Club Scrap blog and I'll be linking up with this card. There's a digital kit, paper kit, and a cardmaking kit. I played around with the stamps for the corners on this card and dug out and old Time & Space stamp for the clock. I used my Distress Oxide inks for the background with a stencil. The sentiment and balloon is from the digital kit.
Time for another challenge at Cards in Envy. We are looking for cards that have at least one heart.
I am still playing with the Simon Says Stamp Valentine's kit from a couple years ago. I am liking the Sand and red color combination. The window die is Just Rite and the love die is Stampin'Up. Hearts are an old punch I have.
Come visit the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team came up with. Then link up your heart cards on the Cards in Envy blog for some bragging rights.
