Today I finished the last three cards for the Operation Write Home VCMP.
Our hostess for #7 challenged us to make a card with a Fall Theme. I used Operation Write Home Sketch #99 for my card. A few weeks ago my friend stamped this image for me and this is the perfect time to use it'
This challenge is the Un-BEE-Lieveable Challenge
Our challenge is to make a card with a BEE on it and to use a BEE sentiment. I had so much fun using my owl punch for the kids card challenge that I decided to use an Owl with Bee stripes for my card.
I used a distressed stripe embossing folder for the background. I experimented with cutting out wings by using a flower paper punch using vellum for the transparent look. The bee's stripes were hand cut.
The challenge is to make a card using the negative of a die or punch.
My card is made with a feather die. I stamped a script or handwriting stamp on the open space created by the negative of the die. I cut two more feathers, one of glitter paper and one I embossed with a swirl pattern. I used distressed inks to color the edges of everything and highlight the distressed stripe used on the base of the card.
