Card For Creative Hands Friends FB Progressive Challenge #4

After posting my very first card using a digi image for a Facebook challenge & winning it,I was extremely excited(I won 3 awesome digi’s as a prize too!!)….and then a few days back I was asked to try out as a DT member for them….things are pretty great right now… 🙂

Before I start,I must thank Julie Curtis – for very patiently helping and guiding me and of course Michelle Kierznowski – the creator of all the wonderful digi’s and our sponsor…

The Facebook challenge runs for two weeks each which is ample time for you to create a project…A new challenge starts every other Tuesday and the current one started on the 26th of April so if you rush over and join our FB group – Cre8tive Hands Fans – you could participate in the latest challenge…the digi for the challenge is FREE….

I do hope you will join in and participate…it’s good fun….

                                           

So here’s my card for FB Progressive Challenge #4…..

I started with a blue card base and a white top layer…on the top layer I have stamped a striped border stamp repeatedly with blue ink to create a background…..I heat embossed the sentiment at the top using black heat embossing powder…

I then printed the challenge digi and coloured it in using Spectrum Noir Markers and cut it out…I placed that onto the top layer using large bits of adhesive foam…and finally I used clear sequins to decorate the card…

Hope you liked this card….Thanks for stopping by….

Happy Happy Happy Birthday To You Card

I’m sure it happens with most crafters….you think of an idea and get very excited about it….but when you are half way through,things happen and you don’t get the result you had envisioned….at this moment you make a decision either to scrap or salvage….and considering how very costly craft supplies are(in Australia at least),I’m sure most crafters in this situation try their very best to salvage the project….
So here’s how this card went…..I started with a red card base and a white top layer….on the top layer I stamped a few different patterned circle images with versamark ink and heat embossed them using black embossing powder….I noticed that some circles did not emboss properly but it wasn’t a big deal so I carried on and used watercolours to colour in the all the circles….the result wasn’t that great…maybe I should’ve used a single colour…anyways,I decided to carry on and not scrap it…
So I die cut a Vellum sheet using stitched rectangle die same size as the top layer and adhere it using brads on all four corners….I then die cut the happy word 3 times using red glitter cardstock and adhere them to the vellum…then I cut a silver banner and stamped the words ‘Birthday to you!’ on it and adhered it below the happy words…Finally I added a few silver star sequins and my card was complete….
What do you think about this card??Do you like how it turned out in the end??Let me know…
