*I made the two cards shown below for next week’s challenge, “Anything Goes” but they were accidentally posted for this week’s challenge. The reason I mention this is because they really don’t depict “Fun in the Sun.” They were able to add the correct cards so these are sort of a bonus. Things happen, sorry for any confusion. - Myrna
Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Anything Goes.” I designed two different cards for this challenge. Click on the link below to find out more about this fabulous group!I made two cards for this challenge.
Card 1: For my first card, I was going for a vintage feel. I used various stamps from Tim Holtz and one of his newer dies called, Dapper.” I used a retired background stamp by JustRite for the card background, brown card stock, dimensional foam tape, and distress inks to add dimension/texture. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps, called “Vintage Sentiments.”
Card 2: I wanted to make a more modern, colourful card for my second card. I used a stamp set from Psper Smooches called, “Metropolis.” I coloured the images with Copic Markers.I fussy cut everything out. Next I arranged the cityscape and glued everything to the base card. The final step was adding the sentiment. I used a SU tag punch to cut the sentiment out. I cut a duplicate tag in red, cut it in half, then outlined the sentiment. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments.”
