Trying Something New

This morning I saw this amazing card that Jayme posted. Seriously, go check it out. Talk about GORGEOUS!! I've never really seen a shadow box card before and since she raved about how easy it was I figured I'd give it a go. Those that know me well(Holly,lol) know that I like to stay safe with my cards and dont really venture out of my comfort zone very often, and when I do the results can often be, well, interesting, LOL.

I messed up on the scoring a bit, and since I dont have a Circle Cutter I used my Coluzzle and my circle ended up a *tad* closer to the left, but overall I think I managed my first shadow box card all right. I'll have to try it a few more times to get the feel for it!

I used the latest color challenge over at Splitcoaststampers but I had to get a bit creative when I realized I didnt have the ink for Baja Breeze or Marina Mist. How the heck did that happen? I could have sworn I had those ink colors but I guess now I need to order them! Anyway, the colors for the challenge are Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery and Marina Mist. I added the flowers stamped in Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler for a little extra something and put some Dazzling Diamonds on them also.

Supplies Used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Cheep Talk
Paper: Marina Mist, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Sky, Buckaroo Blue, Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Oval Punch, Coluzzle, white gel pen, dimensionals

  1. You actually made one of these a long long time ago... at a stamp class I believe it was purple and blue and used a frog set.. But we used the circle punches for the window. This one is super cute, and yes you like to play it safe but that's okay. but it is good to see you take an adventure.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, its always appreciated!
