World Card Making Day with Winnie and Walter Challenge-On Trend: Cameras

Hello again!! This is my second post of the day. I have been busy creating cards for World Card Making day. I browsed a lot of blogs but the one that I kept going back to was the Winnie and Walter blog. They posted some really fun challenges and I played along with four of them today. I might do some more tomorrow if I have time too!!


The first challenge posted was to create a card using a camera as a theme. I created a fun birthday card.


The first thing I did was to choose a color scheme. I had the background scrap sitting on my desk so I decided to use that. Then, I die cut the circle out of a gray scrap, the camera out of various colored scraps and the photo frame out of white. All the dies I used were from My Favorite Things. Next I stamped the sentiment onto the circle in black ink and adhered it to the card.

I adhered the camera next, piecing it together piece by piece.


The little square at the top was originally a die cut Polaroid frame but I cut part of it off due to spacial reasons. It wasn't a requirement to use Winnie and Walter stamps for these challenges but I chose to do so on this card. (I only have one Winnie and Walter stamp set too. I LOVE their stuff but I am on a no buying challenge right now and have been since August. It is KILLING me!!) I stamped some fun images from their "Big Bang Bling" set.


I inked the stamped square up with stone ink and adhered bot the frame and center onto the card. I then added some blue bling and it was done. So simple but I think so effective!!



I wanted to use my Soufflé pen to add some color in the word "snappy" but the darn things were dried out!! I attempted to put the one I wanted to use in hot water to try to loosen it up but it didn't work. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!
