Good day all and welcome to another Simply Sunday at Getting Cricky. I just love, love, love this week's challenge. Not that I haven't loved the other challenges, but this one by far is my favorite. The Fashionable Friends set is so much fun and with every stamp set Kristal sells she is donating $1 to Cancer Angels to help Stage 4 level Cancer patients. Cancer Angels gives atleast 95% of all monies raised to the people in need. This is my favorite charity as it hits close to home for me. Again, not that the other charities aren't good, it's just my personal favorite. Also, very quickly, I wanted to remind you that Kristal is also having a fun little contest over on her facebook page here. Post your favorite card, layout, etc on her facebook page and she will give something away. The most generous person on the net...
okay so now onto my card for today. One of my design team sisters, Erika made a wiper card...what is that? That was my reaction also...I had never heard of it, but she also made a video and you can see it here. She did a fantastic job with the details and her video was so EASY to follow. I decided I could do one too...so thanks Erika and here is what I made:
The bling is from the $1 bin at Michaels. When I saw them I knew I wanted to make something for the Fashionable Friends stamp set, but I wasn't sure. They've been in my bling bin for about a month now and this week's challenge was exactly what I needed them for. Yah!!! The background papers are all from my stash...you'd think I'd be through my stash about now, but nope, not even close. Therefore, I have no idea where the paper came from...bad me!!! I used three, yes, three stamps on my card.
I stamped "Girls just wanna have fun" on a flower I punched out of the same paper as the background and pop-dotted it right over the exact pattern a bit off skewer after I inked the edges a bit. I love doing this technique and it gives it dimension without over doing it.
Then I stamped "Shopping is my Therapy" on the wiper so that pops out.
|I just noticed I need to adhere my corner down a bit more...hmmm.
I also stamped "I (heart) my Visa" six times on the middle panel.
