Wow Wednesday 33-2018


Hi! Welcome back to my week as designer here at Card A Day Challenge.

The theme for August is school related (teacher, back to school, encouragement for a child) and the color scheme is yellow, black and white. For WOW Wednesday, the challenge is to turn up the volume on a card. To be honest, this is a stretch for me as I prefer the clean and simple look.

Here's my card


I started with Sunday’s card with the yellow background. To turn up the volume, I added clear Wink of Stella to the die cut “you”. With a gold glitter gel pen, I added some pen marks along sides of the black strip. To complete the turned up volume card, I added some rhinestones. Here's a close-up.


Thanks for coming by. Hope you'll drop by again tomorrow.

Technique Tuesday 33-2018


Hi! It's Sue back with a new card.

The theme for August is school related (teacher, back to school, encouragement for a child) and the color scheme is yellow, black and white.  For Technique Tuesday, the challenge is to use this month’s technique which is pull tab sentiments. 

Here's my card


I used Hero Arts Lunch Box Notes to stamp the butterfly, slug and frame with Hero Arts Butter Bar and Hero Arts Charcoal inks. I fussy cut the frame. For the sentiment strip, I used the same Hero Arts Lunch Box Notes for the main sentiment and My Favorite Things Interactive Notes stamp set for the “pull”.

Here's the same card, with the pull tab revealed.


I used foam adhesive to create the channel for the sentiment strip and the stoppers so that the sentiment strip doesn’t pull completely out. For the background panel, I used some yellow plaid patterned paper.

Thanks for coming by. I'll be back with another card, tomorrow.

Mistletoe Monday 33-2018

Welcome. It's Sue. I'm the designer here this week.


The theme for August is school related (teacher, back to school, encouragement for a child) and the color scheme is yellow, black and white.  For Mistletoe Monday, the challenge is to make a Christmas/Holiday card. I followed this month’s color scheme which when making Christmas cards is a bit challenging. 

Here's my card



I stamped the snowman using Unity Stamps’ Winter Frosty stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color to the snowman’s toque and scarf with a Copic Y06 marker. I added a 0.5” black striped strip of printed paper to the left margin of the card to balance the card.


Thanks for stopping by. Please pop by tomorrow to see my next card.
