OWH July 4th VCMP Challenge #18

Standard

Operation Write Home had a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The 18th and final challenge was hosted by Cara at Crafting Adventures. Use a faux technique on your card.

My card is another happy accident. For the Texture challenge, my first attempt started by using the Tim Holtz Rays stencil with Distressed Inks to create a rainbow pattern on a card. Then I used a Rays embossing folder with it but the rays didn’t match and the card became trash.  The stencil was sitting in front of me, still covered with ink and I had a VOILA moment.  So, using his handy dandy 12 months of tags June technique, I spritzed some water on the inky stencil and put it ink side down on cardstock. When I pulled the stencil up and used my heat gun to dry it, I realized the resulting image looks as though I was standing in a woods of rainbow hued trees, looking up to a bright sun.

I created a FAUX-rest. (Thank you, thank you, I’m here all week.)

The 17th challenge is hosted by Sherry at Bits of Cheer  and is to create a Christmas card using Inchies.

I decided to use OWH Sketch #175 for mine. I tweaked it a bit to add a sentiment. It’s covering part of the inchies but they are there.

The 14th challenge is hosted by Annettemake a Thick Any Hero Card and a Thin version for a hero to send home.

To be honest, neither of these is fully asembled. I used the buttons on the first to represent Thick, and the stamped buttons to represent thin. The AnyHero cards I make feature pictures of my dog. Still, a good exercise in looking out for elements and embellishments that won’t work for cards for heros to send home.

OWH July 4th VCMP Challenges #8 & #9 Combo

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The eighth challenge is hosted by Cherie’s Corner of the World and is a recipe style – make a Miss You card with at least 1 circle and 2 banners.

The ninth challenge is hosted by Andrea at Crafty Tafty and is to create a masculine card with a vintage style image.

I decided to combine the two so my card is a “masculine miss you with a vintage image plus two circles and banners”.

This stamped image actually says “moving forward” but all that makes me think of is the Modern English song “I Melt With You”. I took an “I miss you” stamp, put it on 2 separate banners and then popped them with The Precious over the words, adding a screwhead detail as well.
