Banners, flags, arrows, grunge, splatters and washi tape. Yes, they are all very trendy at the moment and heaps of fun to play with. I am loving this look, although I still love my vintage cards too, but it’s nice to get into something a bit more modern too.
This card has a lot of those new trends. It was a “Make and Take” that we received at the recent Stampin’ Up! Convention, which I have very slightly modified.
It is a single layer card (something which I am not good at!) and uses the Gorgeous Grunge and Hello,Lovely stamp sets, and a strip of Washi tape, as well as one of the gorgeous new Very Vintage Designer Buttons.
Hope you are having a crafty day.
My turn to set the challenge again this week at Our Creative Corner, and I have chosen a photo to inspire you!
What I would like you to do is, create a project of your choice which:
1. Uses something from the photo that inspires you, it can be colours, shapes, anything at all.
2. Use 2 or more buttons on your project, they can be real buttons, fabric buttons, covered buttons, die cut buttons, any sort of buttons!
3. And, use polka dots somewhere.
And here is my card.
I have taken the colours from the photo and also the cake stand, as inspiration.
I have used the polka dot papers from the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper packs in Soft Subtles, punched them out using the Blossom Punch and Boho Blossoms Punch, and then done some free-hand paper piercing around each one, and then markers to create the stitched look. (For those of you who are regular visitors to my blog or my classes, you will know that I love my faux stitching!!)
The “vase” is from A Cherry on Top stamp set, which is a cute new hostess set (Page 197 of the Annual Catalogue) and the leaves from Betsy’s Blossom have been stamped in Gumball Green and hand cut. And just to make sure it was really “polka dotty” 🙂 I have used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for the white background.
Have a look at what the fabulous Design Team have created for this challenge, and I do hope you will be inspired to create something and share it with us.
