Sketch It Wednesday 25-2019

Here is she sketch we were given for today's challenge.

The triangle reminded me of a tepee, so I flipped the sketch for this card.

The image and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company''s set called Hello Bear. I made a cut file for my Cricut so that I could make the image again without having to do the fussy cutting.  I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted it on a background paper from a DWCV stack called The Good Wood.  I added a couple of enamel dots at the bottom and used the sentiment which has an arrow as part of it for the banner at the top.  It is a fun little card. - Denise

Technique Tuesday 25-2019

Today we have a technique that was new to me.  It is a slider card and Gina K has a good video with instructions on how to make this type of card.  It can be found here.

As you can see, pulling the tab lifts this little hedgehog into the clouds.  I started with a stamp from a Unity set called Hoppy and Hedgie.  I stamped the image and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut it.  The place where the balloons come together was pretty thin, so I baked it with another strip of cardstock to reinforce it.  I had decided to make the parts on my Cricut Explore using basic shapes and Design Space.  Since this image was so long, I decided to put the square in the center and have the balloons disappear at the top as the hedgehog appeared.  I hand cut some clouds and added some Distress Ink blending to place around the opening.  I was going to stamp my sentiment directly on the cloud but forgot until it was attached and the foam underneath made it too bumpy to stamp, so it turned into a banner. I learned a lot and will probably do some things differently next time. - Denise

Mistletoe Monday 25-2019

We are thinking of Christmas today.

I used a cut file from the Cricut cartridge called Create a Critter 2.  Since I wanted to make a card from the image, I copied the black base layer and sliced off the chimney so that I could attach the two shapes together.  I used a black glitter washi tape along the top on both the outside and inside of the card to act as a hinge.  I used glitter paper for the decorations.  Once they were on, I decided to go even more glitzy and added some lights along the roof and candy canes along the bottom.  Both came from my stash. - Denise
