So, I am going to post two cards which were for Virtual Stamp Night a couple of weeks ago. I posted them to the SCS gallery, now finally here. As a reminder, the VSN theme was "Happy!"
Lisa (Shoe Girl) gave us a challenge to make a 50's themed card, inspired by the TV show "Happy Days." I was stumped! I have no specifically 50's images. But I do have this motorcycle and tire tread from SU's "Rev Up the Fun." It made me think of Fonzie! I used turquoise, bla ck, and slate markers to color the image. The greeting is a fave of mine from "Polka Dot Party." I used basic black, whisper white, and smoky slate card stock, along with turquoise pattern paper. Silver brads are the final detail.
The last VSN card I made was for Ann's challenge. She loves to bake, and baked goods make a lot of us happy! We needed to incorporate a cake or other baked item. Surprisingly, I had almost nothing in the stamp department for this. I did find this small image, in a tag shape, from "Happiest Birthday Wishes." The image is colored with markers: summer starfruit, midnight muse, raspberry ripple, and primrose petals. My small tag punch was used for the image; the large tag for the primrose petals matting. I used "Patio Party" dsp on the raspberry ripple card base, some midnight muse ribbon, and a touch of cherry cobbler twine.
I hope to get back in the groove this week. The good news is that I had to clean up my craft space so it could be used for a guest room. Time for a freshly made mess! LOL
