Guest Designer Week! A-LA-Card-Monkey #95 AND HSS Challenge!
This week I had the honour of being a guest designer for A-La-Card Monkey challenge. So I got the sketch and theme early and was able to create ahead of time to be featured on the monkey site for this week with some other wonderful designers. Don't forget to go and check it out and play along of course!
Here is this weeks Sketch
Look at that cute little hamster dude! He is so happy to be playing in the flowers!
I love a lot of things but one thing I love for cards are hearts! You can use them for any occasion and they just make me smile. I used the new Framelits hearts for my card this week and was able to do some really cool layering effects with them.
I am going to have this card do double duty this week and enter it into Shirley's Valentine Hop as well!
I started with a Basic Black card base and then added some DSP from Sweet Shoppe This paper is textured and has a great look to it. Next I used the largest heart in the Framlits and cut out a Wisteria Wonder heart then used the next size to create and opening in the heart and ran it through the big shot with the Polka Dots Embossing folder. I cut out a large heart from the silver glitter paper and spritzed it with Wisteria wonder to give it a purple hue to match the card.
This Card Shines like crazy!
I hand cut the base of the arrow in Basic Black and added white trim stamped with pink hearts from the PS I love you Stamp set.
I used the retired double photo corners punch to create my arrow head and "feathers". Over top of this I layered a Concorde Crush Heart cut with Framelits. Then I layered the heart with hearts stamp that I punched with the Large Heart punch.
I added a bow to the corner of my main layers. Stamped a Cupid and layered it again and added the banner.
The Inside is plain white card stock spritzed with two different colours of Purple to jazz it up. Also added some basic Rhinestones to the front for some more bling!
Hope you enjoy this weeks card
