Hello and Happy Friday my friends!
It is suppose to be a beautiful day here. First time since mid November that we will see 70° or warmer!!! (thanks for the tip Sue!) So what a perfect day for this Hanna Stamps Challenge! This week's challenge was to make a card that has Flowers and Polka Dots. HOW FUN! And what a co-inky dink that I just bought this double sided paper by Imaginsce!
This was one of my first Riley Moose Stamps. I have long enjoyed Riley and his girl, Sophie. It doesn't bother me that they do many of their every day tasks nekkid. :) I mean he is wearing his gardening boots...any clothes would just get all dirty! LOL! It's kind of a joke on the Hanna Stamps Yahoo group about Riley and his preference for being nakey. :) Personally, I like a moose that can feel comfortable in just his boots! heeheehee
If you want to participate in this weeks Hanna Stamps Challenge you can find the original post HERE in the Hanna Stamps Forum on SCS. This challenge is hosted by fellow DT member Sandra. (AKA: B-gin-R on SCS) ( I am not sure what time she will post it in the forum, so check back if it's not up)
Notice the poll over there on the right? Please take a moment to answer it.
I am wondering if you want more info on how I made the specific cards. Personally, I tend not to read blogs where they walk me through a step by step process of their card making. But maybe that's just me. I don't mind sharing more info if that is what people want. Or maybe you'd just like to see one of those little "ask/chat" interactive boxes on my sidebar where you can ask a specific question and I reply. Vote and leave a comment to let me know.
Below is an example of what I mean by a step by step:
For this card I cut a 12"x 6" piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I folded that in half for the base. Next I layered a piece of 5.75" by 5.75" of Wild Wasabi CS on top of the base. Then I cut a piece of 5.5"x 5.5" piece of White CS. I ran this through my cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I had to move the cardstock around several times to achieve the embossed dots on all areas of the cardstock because the embossing folders aren't big enough. I really wish they would make those folders bigger. Then I adhered the embossed white cardstock to the Wild Wasabi piece. Next I cut a 5.25"x2.25" of Chocolate Chip CS. I layered a piece of 5"x2" piece of the Green Flowered DP from Imaginisce on top. Then adhered that to the card. Next, I layered a 2"x4.50" piece of Red and White Polka Dot DP from Imaginisce onto a piece of 4.75" x 2.25" piece of Chocolate Chip CS. I adhered this to the base, slightly overlapping the flowered piece. After coloring in my image with Copic Markers, I used my square Nestabilities to cut out the image. ETC.....ETC....ETC........
Actually, I don't think I could write a step by step by step for every post. Look....I can't even finish this one because I am boring myself! And plus, as I mentioned before, it is not such a standard process. It usually involves a lot of ripping up paper and re cutting and cursing. LOL! However, let me know if you'd like to know a little more than my ingredients, that I usually provide. Or maybe there is something that you'd like to know more about that I can provide on a one time thing. Like how I choose my colors. Or How do I buy my papers.
To be honest, I think its funny that anyone would be interested in how I do anything! LOL! So I guess that's why I don't provide the details. I am still shocked that you all come here to my blog everyday!! So once again, thanks for stopping in today!
Have a Splendiferous Day!
