you dream about making cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes last night I dreamed about making a card.... it had a Tim Holtz birdcage die, some distress inks..... but that's all I remember!!!!!!!!! Honestly....I can't think why other than subconsciously I wanted to take part in Barb's 90 minute challenge.... it started at 6.00am my time and I was still snoring my head off!!!!
Now talking about the challenge ~ it was "Frame It" and you should see the wonderful entries.... go here to have a look. I was inspired by the idea of framing that I made a card this afternoon....
I was inspired to try a frame I saw on Gina K's Stamp TV as well as all the beauties this morning..
This card is really simple. I masked off the edges of the base card with masking tape and stamped Magical background in Dusty Concord distress ink. Once I removed the mask I edged the panel with a fine black Sharpie. My centre circle is cut from some PP which is layered onto a white circle. The fancy edging frame is made by cutting 3 Fancy Tags from Spellbinders, cutting each in half and laying round the circle. I then cut out a CB little tag and stamped part of a sentiment from a HA set - it was Just for you but as you see that wouldn't fit so I just inked up the last two words. Added gems at each end. The whole panel was then popped up on dimensional tape.
I have decided to enter this is into a number of challenges:
Wee Memories ~ anything goes
Hero Arts ~ masking
Pile it On Challenge ~ anything goes
Simply Create ~ Use your punches
Today is a rather wet and steamy day so staying inside to make cards and check the blogs is in order.... I had left a bucket outside after washing the floors and this morning it was half full.... that's a lot of rain.... currently not raining but very very steamy. Hope the tropical storms pass quickly.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving all the lovely comments ~ they are much appreciated. Take care
