Got to go up north with a couple of friends this weekend and make cards. Oh boy, did we have fun. I’m not going to give you the names and links to all the stamp sets we used, as most of them belonged to a friend of mine. It was also Card Crop time for We Craft Cards, so many of these are what I did for the challenges for that.
It was a Musical Mania crop, so each host chose a musical, then made a challenge from the musical. The first person chose Seussical the Musical and we had to base our card on any Dr. Seuss character. I chose Yertle the Turtle and used my friend’s Lawn Fawn Magic Window dies and one of her Before and After stamp sets. That was a lot of fun and I may have to borrow it to make a bunch more of these.
The next challenge was Wicked and we had to use mainly shades of green. I just stuck totally with green and had some fun. The next one was 7 Brides for 7 Brothers and you had to put 7 things, no more, no less, on your card base. As the sentiment is stamped on the base card, I didn’t count that. So I have the cute little Stamping Bella Squidgy image popped up over some ribbon, patterned paper and solid card, as well as 3 pieces of bling.
We had an Oz challenge, where you could use any character from the Wizard of Oz. I went with flying monkeys, though my monkey doesn’t fly. One person actually made a flying monkey card, which was pretty amazing. Another challenge was the Lion King and you could use any African animal. I went with the rhinoceros. Had to show you the inside of that one, too.
Also did the MFT color and sketch challenges while we were there. Okay, I combined them, but they are both there.
This is the same card, just wanted to show it to you without flash, then with flash, so you could see the sparkle. Granted, gold wasn’t one of the colors, but I really had to add some sparkle to the adorable fairy.
Thanks for spending some time with me today! Have a wonderful week.
