Happy Thursday everyone! Here we are at the last Thursday of the month! Wow! I feel like this month just flew by! Anyone else feel that way? Anyway, it is time for another super great challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! Take a look at the sketch:
So cool! It is something a little different and I wanted to push myself to do something a little different (well, at least for me). I think that a little bit of Carrie Gaskin is rubbing off on me - lol! Don't you just love her style? Anyway, here is what I came up with:
I decided to go with a more antique feel. I also wanted to use the new embossing frames. These are SO cool!! I am still experimenting with them but what I did was emboss the frame on Very Vanilla card stock and then cut it out. Then I distressed it with Crumb Cake ink and a sponge. But let me back up a bit and tell you that my card base is Crumb Cake that is sponged with Crumb Cake. Then a layer of Basic Black and another layer of Crumb Cake that is sponged as well. Then I took a piece of Basic Black card stock tore the edges, wad it up and glued it to the card. I also took a piece of First Edition designer paper tore and sponged the edges, wadded it up and glued it to the card. Then I took some Basic Black satin ribbon and wrapped it around that and tied a bow. Then I took the Vintage Vogue stamp set and stamped the "F" in black StazOn on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out. I popped it up on the frame and popped the frame up over the ribbon. The last thing I did was to stamp the "friends" in black StazOn on Very Vanilla card stock and notch it on one end. The other end of it is attached to the ribbon with a safety pin and brad from the vintage trinkets (love those). There you have it!
Need some more inspiration? Sure! We all do!! And you won't be disappointed by the inspiration from the rest of the team! Go check them out at the Create with Connie and Mary website! Then go and create your own wonderful project using the sketch provided. I always love to see what you all come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
