Good Morning Everyone!!
Well, I am just beyond excited to share with you the most amazing news!! I am pleased to announce that I have been chosen to be a member of the first ever PriscillaStyles Digital Store Design team! How cool is that?!! Many of you know Priscilla through the MMSC challenge. This design team is for her digital stamps store. I am fairly new to the experience of digital stamps; but I have to tell you, it is pretty cool working with them and Priscilla has some incredible images in her store. You will notice with this announcement that I've added some more items to the side bar of my blog. Please take some time to visit the other DT members and of course, be sure to check out Priscilla's store. The other new addition worth mentioning is the Crafter's Digital Art Center. This is an awesome site and if you are into digi stamping, I highly recommend that you visit and join it. It's kinda like a SCS for digital stampers!
Anyhow, I will be having lots of PS images and goodies to share with you over the next three months and I'm going to start today with this week's MMSC68 challenge.
For this card, I chose to use Priscilla's sunflower image, which was free by the way! (through CDAC) It was a no brainer to think of what colors to use: Yellow and Black!! I decided also to throw in some gray as well. I started with a standard size Summer Sun (SU!) card base and then added a layer of gray. This is a piece of Coredination card stock that I embossed with the swirls CB embossing folder and then sanded over it. The strip of black on the side measures 1 7/8 x 5 1/4. Next, I matted a 7/8 x 5 3/8 piece of gray on to a piece of white card stock (I did the stitching on the grey with the yellow thread before attaching it) I used Label 8 Nestabilities and Petite Scallop circles for the center piece. I shrank the sunflower image in Microsoft word, so that I knew it would fit into a 2 3/8 in circle. By the way, I do NOT have a special printer. Just a regular ol Cannon Printer/scanner. I printed it on Gina K. Luxury White Paper and to be safe just set it aside to dry while I was working on the rest of the card. I used E29 and black for the center of the flower. The petals were shaded with Y21, Y35 andY38. Finally I added the ribbon pieces to the back of the yellow center piece and attached it all with dimensional adhesives.
This card also fits a couple of other challenges that I found on the Daily Dare:
1. Papertake Weekly 3-2-1 Challenge. (I used 3 pieces of ribbon, 2 Nestabilities Shapes, and 1 image)
2. Scrapping With I Did It Creations: Flowers
3. Scrap-Creations: Ribbons, Flowers, Brads or Pearls.
Have a great day, and happy crafting!!
4. Stamp Something: Digital Stamp
