First up today is my card for Muse #17
and the challenge to be inspired by this sweet card from Therese Calvird.
I am a complete sucker for googly eyes and this one has eyelashes! As much as I wanted to, I could not find a stamp in my collection that would work with google eyes, so I focussed on a repeat of the image and the word banner to create this card that may go to my daughter when she gets her driver's permit.
I stamped the bug on designer paper and then die cut the image (LOVE how easy it is to this with Tayored Expressions dies!), colored in the tires and fussy cut out the windows. I will admit I didn't see the CAS-ual Fridays post
until after I finished this card, but am still going to link it up to their challenge to stamp on designer paper.
Quite quickly, the Nestabilities Circle dies were out and I was trying to figure out what direction I wanted to go,
In order to get the color profile I wanted, I cut six sets of circles from designer paper. Because of the way I planned to make this card, I was going to end up with enough pieces to make another five cards. Since Cath also has a Card Set Challenge
going on at Moxie Fab World, the full set and gift bag are being entered in that challenge.
Once I had my targets assembled, I made a pattern to cut the circles in 6 pieces of varying size. The pieces were shuffled and circles recreated.
Alternate pieces are popped up with foam adhesive and a jeweled brad placed in the middle.
Banners were inked and stamped with either "Thank You" or "Celebrate Today".
Using the same Simple Stories paper line, I made a gift bag to hold the cards.
Thanks for stopping by,
