Happy Monday all! Well, I’m down to the last 8 projects for HYCCT! I want to get these posted, so I’m going to lump a few together. Oh, and exciting news, I won a $50 gift certificate to Taylored Expressions. They were one of the many generous sponsors for HYCCT. I’m very excited about that!
Today I have 3 cards for you. First up is the Pocketfull of HOPE challenge — to have a pocket on your card.
I had the perfect set for this — MFT Pretty Pocket and coordinating die. I cut the pocket from Little Boy Blue (Gina K), which is pretty spot on for denim. Then I stamped the stitching in white on the pocket and made it overflow with stars, hearts and peace signs. I think this would be great for a tween/teen child.
Next up is the challenge card for the stand tall challenge — to create a tall card.
Since this required 12×12 card stock, which I don’t have a lot of, I didn’t have a lot of wiggle room. I decided to create this as a piece of art on a wall. I used MFT Abstract Art and created my “work of art”. Underneath is a sentiment from MFT Clearly Sentimental about Art.
Finally is a scenic card — the challenge was to create a scene. There are no better stamps than There She Goes stamps to create scenes. I pulled out the oft neglected Home Sweet Home and HSH Holiday Additions to create my scene.
I wanted this to look like you were looking into the room, so it is very simple and free of embellishments. Lots of masking and stamping for this set up. My mirror does have some Glossy Accents on it, as well as the wine glass. To make the fire pop a bit, I added Stickles to the flame and as the ash pile underneath the log. The picture frame is paper pieced with a piece of designer paper.
