OWH Presidents’ Day VCMP Challenge 8

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card making Party this weekend.

Challenge 8 is hosted by Indiana Inking – Washi Tape.

Here’s my submission.

Let me be honest here – I have no washi tape. I’m compulsively crafty and really don’t want to start buying it because I know I won’t be able to stop. I have seen examples of people using regular paper in place of it though so that’s what I did.

Wausau Fleck Cardstock. Black paper from stash. Pattern papers from Recollections, cut in varying widths and then torn on the end. Voila a Washi look. Thanks is from Doodlebug set in Memento Tuxedo Black.

OWH Presidents’ Day VCMP Challenge 5

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card making Party this weekend.

Challenge 5 is hosted by The Crooked Stamper – Disapppearing Act with Sketch 63.

To be honest, I just used the Disappearing part of the challenge as I had 2 patterns of paper I wanted to use together. I created a layout based on how the paper broke down into 6 sets.

Pattern papers are from a thrift stash. Cream is from stash. Sentiment is Doodlebug in Memento Rich Cocoa with Copper brad from Recollections.

I used a whole sheet of the background pattern and used a half sheet remnant of the stripe. Decided to mellow it out with the cream. Used a couple sheets of the solid paper as well.

OWH Presidents’ Day VCMP Challenge 4

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card making Party this weekend.

Challenge 4 is hosted by Penguin Papers – Things with Wings.

Here’s my submission –

I was so excited when I saw this challenge – I’d purchased a new set of stamps last week that was nothing but wings. I pulled it out and started stamping a set of butterfly wings that I then cut out. I sat at my table for half an hour, trying new background papers, different placements etc until I realized the wings were too big to do what I needed them to do. I then stamped a set of bird wings and looked at the image. I wondered what would happen if I stamped them again as a mirror image. It was awesome. Figured my best bet was a super simple and smaller vintagey sentiment and the card above was born.

Black textured paper from stash. Pattern paper is TPC Studio Beyond the Page Bohemian Tapestry. Wings are from Eco Green Crafts Wings set. Love is from TPC Studio Whimsy Greetings. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
