Today I am going to post THREE different times because I created cards for three different challenges. Yes, I go from not posting anything to flooding it through. That is me in a nut shell as of late, though. It is either feast or famine!!
The first card I am going to post is for this weeks Paper Trey Ink's Make it Monday challenge A La Carte. You were to pick any MIM technique that they have shown over the year and create a project using that technique.
For this card I used MIM #99-Repeats and Rainbows technique. Basically it was to pick a fun color scheme and use it on a project. I used the color scheme below for my card:
I knew when I saw this challenge that I would use my new Happy Hearts stamp set and Cover plate that I received right before Christmas. I was kind of bad about ordering things for myself this year. Shhh, don't tell!!
I first die cut the hearts out of white card stock and then stamped over the hearts with PTI ink. I was going to just tuck the hearts back inside where they were cut from and layer it over the card but I decided to go a step further. I put the negative die cut cover plate over a white card, lightly penciled in hearts for placement and then stamped the hearts again with the various colors and patterns.
I then layered the die cut over the stamped hearts and popped some of them off with foam tape to give the card dimension. Next I stamped and trimmed the sentiment and layered that on to the card using a slightly thinker foam adhesive. My last step was to add the sequins.
Though this card took me a bit of time, I love how it came out. I will be making a couple more like it to keep in my stash. I will also stamp the inside too but will do it at a later time when I know who I want to send it too.
Thank you for looking!! I hope you will read my other posts today as well for the next cards!!
