Sunny Challenge 62

October 7, 2012

This week the challenge has been set by Vicky.  She gave us a lovely sketch and said we had to make “one for the girls”.  This was an easy one for me as girly cards seem to be my favourite.  It’s only when it comes to all things male that I get a little stuck.

I cut my Whisper White card in half lengthways to get a tall card that opens at the bottom.  I embossed the top half of the card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I embossed the Old Olive card using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. I attached a narrow piece of Night of Navy card which is punched along one long edge using the Scallop Edge Border Punch behind the Old Olive card before attaching it to the card front.  I embossed a piece of Daffodil Delight card using the Stripes Embossing folder and attached it over the middle of the card front.  I stamped the image from the Bordering on Romance stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink and punched it out using the 2-1/2″ Circle PunchI used Old Olive, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers and a blender pen to colour the image.  I stamped the same image twice more onto scrap Whisper White card and coloured two flowers from one of the images and one flower from the other one using the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and a blender pen and cut them out.  I cut the scallop circle from the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die from Night of Navy card and attached it behind the punched image.  I attached this to the card front using dimensionals.  The flowers which I cut out were attached over the matching flower using dimensionals, so that you get two layers on one flower and three on the other.  Lastly I added a few Basic Pearls to the flower centres.

I think this is girly enough, what about you?

Now if you need additional inspiration pop over to Sunny Challenges and see what Vicky has in store for you.  Once you have created your card, scrap page or 3d item, add them to Mr. Linky.  As always I look forward to seeing your creations.

Just to keep you all up to date, Gwen won’t be part of our challenge this week as her husband has just undergone an operation.  Everything seems to be going according to plan but if she hasn’t already prepared a challenge card, then she won’t be participating at least for the next couple of weeks,  she is saving all her energy to look after Ron.   Hopefully he will be back on his feet in no time.

Bye for now, Kris.
