Happy Thursday to you! It's snowing in north central Texas this morning! Guess Tuxapawny Phil knows his stuff! :O)
Today's card is pretty simple and fairly basic. I used a FREE digi from Layers of Color. There stamps are very ornate and just plain GORGEOUS!!!
I felt this bird had a hippy style feel to it so I used lots of color. Everything you see is Stampin' Up! except got the rhinestones. The card is for my niece Jenny's 30-something birthday which is tomorrow and my card will be late. Jenny sings lead vocals in a band in Austin, TX. I think this image suits her!
Deets: I used the Top Note die and cut out the center of the kraft cardstock for a frame. Then I cut the same die into my pink cardstock. Then I tore away long the perforation. I matted the pink on the piece of kraft. I added my stamps and heat embossed. My bird was popped up on dimensional adhesives. I used the heart border punch along the edge and I used the excess from the pink I behind the little hearts. I added some rhinestones and VOILA!
My card was created for the La-La Weekly Wednesday Challenge #25. Lisa Hjulberg has a whopper of a challenge for us--NO DESIGNER PAPER! You can do it!! Think cuttlebug... think distressed edges... think doodling some borders! There's lots of possibilities! If you'd like more inspiration, please hop on over to our challenge blog and see what our Design Team has whipped up!
La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #25 - No Designer Paper!
Hello La-La Land Crafters!! Welcome to La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!!
My name is Lisa Hjulberg, and I'm thrilled to be back as your hostess for this week's challenge. Before we get to that, I'd like to extend our thanks to each of you who played in our challenge this past week. Your "heart" cards were awesome!
Now, on to this week's challenge. I challenge you to make a card without using any designer/decorative paper (including any you stamp on your own). Yep, that's right... only cardstock! But you can dry emboss the cardstock layers and use whatever embellishments you want. It's sort of the old-fashioned way of card-making!
Here's what you need to do to participate:
1) Create a NEW card for the challenge. You are more than welcome to combine challenges!
2) You may use any stamps, but if you've got some La-La Land Craft stamps, why not show them some love?!
3) Link your project to Mr. Linky below by Monday, February 15th at 11:59pm PST (GMT-8).
4) Be sure to link directly to the blog or gallery post featuring your entry!
5) If you post your card on Splitcoaststampers, please use keyword: LLWWC25. If you are also using a stamp from La-La Land Crafts, please use BOTH keywords LLLC and LLWWC25.
6) Link back to this challenge in your blog or gallery post.
The Top 3 will get to put an adorable button on their blog!
