Today’s Card Challenges

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 31, 2007 in Cards |

I did two SplitCoastStampers challenges today – it’s been a busy morning!

The first was a card sketch challenge – here’s the sketch we were to follow:


And here’s my card based on the sketch:

Card - Christmas sketch

I used an Always Artichoke cardstock base and added a strip of Holiday Harmony paper at the top.  I wrapped the center seam with a piece of satin ribbon (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that satin ribbon!!!!) and then put a self-adhesive die-cut from the Hand Selected Accents and Elements tin in the center. 

I took a chipboard scallop-edged frame piece from one of the On Board sets and sponged it with Purely Pomegranate ink, then placed it over the die-cut. 

I took a star from another On Board chipboard set and inked it with Versamark then applied Heat and Stick Powder.  I heated it and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter, then set it in the center of the scallop frame with a pop-up glue dot.

The other challenge was a demonstrator challenge to use the acetate-and-tissue technique on a card.  There’s a great tutorial for this technique on SplitCoastStampers.  Here’s my card using the acetate and tissue technique:

Card - acetate tissue

I did another one as well, but the ink turned out a shade or two too dark under the acetate:

Card - acetate tissue-2

I love this technique and have many other samples that I’ve shared in previous blog posts.

I know I’ve been showing lots of Christmas cards lately, but let me remind you that today is actually only Halloween.  Have a great one!
