Sunny Challenge 22

January 8, 2012

I don’t know about you but things are finally starting to settle down after all the holiday excitement.  School starts back in two weeks and so all the Mums & Dads are counting the days and so I think are the children.  At Sunny Challenges & Creations we are getting back to normal as well and our challenges will again run for one week.  This week we have been provided with a great sketch by Vicky and she has stipulated that we make a “celebration” card.  I can’t think of a better celebration than a wedding, so here is my inspiration for you this week.

I scored and folded Early Expresso card stock and added a layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  Before attaching the Very Vanilla card stock, I punched Bashful Blue card stock using the Heart of Hearts Punch and attached them randomly to the lower half of the Very Vanilla card stock and then embossed the whole piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I also wrapped it with Old Olive 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and tied a knot.  I stamped the wedding image from the Easy Events stamp set onto Very Vanilla card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink and punched it out using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  I coloured the image using Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Early Expresso & Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.  I punched a portion of Chocolate Chip card using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and attached it below the image.  I cut Real Red card stock to create a mat for the image panel and then attached it to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped wedding wishes from the same stamp set (actually from the same image) using Basic Black ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched the greeting using the Word Window Punch.  I cut Bashful Blue card stock using the Modern Label Punch, attached the greeting to it and then to the card front using a dimensional under the left hand side and Snail under the right hand side.  This lets the greeting “sit” on the image panel.

Well now you have seen my sample, pop on over the Gwen and Vicky’s blogs and see what they have in store for you this week, once you have created your card (scrapbook page etc.), go to Sunny Challenges and Creations and add it to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing some gorgeous creations.

Bye for now, Kris.
