Sorry for the lack of postings this week. We had water pouring through the ceiling last Friday, and since then have had no heating, no hot water, and having to flush toilets with buckets of water. We now have flushing toilets so have made some progress :o) That's just one thing that's gone wrong this week, there are many more but I won't bore you with them! As you can see there has been a lack of postings this week as a result of all the mayhem! I've actually got lots of things to show you, but for now I would like to share my Play Date Cafe Challenge card.
This week we have guest designer, Jen Tapler, joining us!
We are also being sponsored by Mod Podge Rocks!
They are giving you the opportunity to win this fab prize...
And here is my take on the colours.... or colors, depending where you live ;o)
I really had to rack my brains for this challenge. I was thinking along the lines of jewellery, but couldn't find anything that worked. I then thought maybe some make up, a little grey make up case with turquoise, terracotta and peachy coloured eyeshadows. Nope, that didn't work. I ended up opting for this! The little silver pearls remind me of those little beads you put on top of cakes, yummmmy!
Here are the card details;
1. Spend a couple of minutes deciding the best way to emboss the circle, cut it first or emboss it first? What do you do?? I couldn't make my mind up! Once you've done that either cut out a circle in pale peach and emboss or emboss and then cut out the circle, your call.
2. Cut out the scallop shape in terracotta, attach the embossed circle to finish
3. Cut out a square in the putty coloured card and then another in pale peach, attach to card base
4. Tie ribbon around the circle before pop dotting onto the card
5. Cut out the 'glam girl' sentiment and stick directly onto the embossed circle
6. Cut out the shoe and nail varnish bottle, doodle on as appropriate and attach to the card
7. Attach the yummy cake decorating silver pearls
Dies: Sizzix Circle #1 and Scallop, Sizzlits 'Nail Polish', 'Phrase, Glam Girl', 'Shoe #7'
Paper: Terracotta, turquoise, putty and pale peach Bazzill cardstock
Accessories: Silver pearls from stash
As usual the rest of the design team have come up with some brilliant interpretations of this week's colour challenge, so do pop over to them to say hi and see what they've done. I love being on this design team, they are all so talented!
*Edited* Challenge Entries - Unscripted Sketches #51 & FTL #86
Just a little extra tonight, I had made some cards for some challenges, so thought I would share them with you. I haven't had a minute to do any of the card details so if you would like them just drop me an e-mail, but at least I can post something for you!
Unscripted Sketch challenge which I now realise I've missed the deadline for! I thought it was Thursday deadline. (this week really isn't going very well!) Oh well, it doesn't matter because I have never really done the torn paper thingy on a card yet, so I thought I'd give it a go, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Using my FAB Amy Butler papers, and the medallion die cuts, I put this card together so quickly. You could use it for thank you cards, birthday, get well etc. etc. I think I will return to this sketch over and over again. I love it!
Clean and Simple Fall to Layout sketch this week. This card was really good fun to make. I just stamped out lots of butterflies on different patterned papers and sat with a pair of scissors to cut them out, love it!!
ps - go and check out Sav's blog, she is running a Growing with Unity week. If you leave her some love you might win a prize!
Hopefully I will get time to share some more cards over the weekend :o)
