I decided I would finish my own Personal Blog Challenge with a Bang! And I would give five cards -- similar but different. I chose to do a set of One Sheet Wonder cards. I chose to do a 6 inch by 6 inch card stock One Sheet Wonder from which to cut the pieces for the five cards I would do.
This is the set of five cards I made. To give the varying shades of color on the card stock I cut up I used 4 colors of the Art Anthology Colorations sprays. Then I randomly stamped the couple, the small suit case and the words from the Technique Junkie stamp set Vintage Travel Cases - http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-travel-cases-set-of-5/. And of course all five cards are stamped with Vintage Travel Cases - http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-travel-cases-set-of-5/. I will give you the information on the verses for each card individually. All stamps used on these cards are Technique Junkie stamps. I will give you the direct link for each verse stamp.
And this is the cutting diagram I made up for these cards. The x's represent areas I did not use.
And now for each individual card -- Card One.
Card One uses the four 1 x 1-1/2 inch pieces of cut card stock. Plus I layered each small piece on green and then all four on one piece of Rich Razzleberry. The verse stamp is Technique Junkie Stamp Dance in the Rain - http://techniquejunkies.com/dance-in-the-rain/.
Card Two uses the one of the 1-3/4 by 3 inch pieces of card stock. It is layered on green and then on the purple color. The verse is from the Mae West Sentiments - http://techniquejunkies.com/mae-west-sentiments/. I used twisted yarn and a flower sprayed with the purple Art Anthology Colorations spray. The clock is tied on underneath the bow.
Card Three -- The one inch squares are used here, each mounted on green and then layered on a yellow sheet of patterned background paper, which is layered on white, then on purple, then on white, and then on green. The verse is Kind Word - http://techniquejunkies.com/kind-word/.
And finally Card Five uses the two remaining larger pieces -- the 1- 3/4 x 3 inches, and the 2 x 3 inch pieces. They were mounted on purple card stick and then on green stock. Then positioned on a multi-colored piece of background paper. I wish you could see those colors. I tied a ribbon around all but the base card stock and centered the bow over the the spot where the two sections overlap. I heated the bow with a heat gun for just a few seconds in order to get ribbon to get a crinkled vintage look. Then I adhered several burgundy ribbon rosettes over the knot in the bow with glue dots. I put one more by the bead swirl. The verse comes from the set Thing I want to Do - http://techniquejunkies.com/things-i-want-to-do/. This set has just a lot of fun sayings. I love it!
So during the month on February I hope I have inspired you to think outside the box a bit. I hope it has caused to at least think about buying this set Vintage Travel Cases - http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-travel-cases-set-of-5/ .
And tomorrow -- well that is a new Blog Hop Day for the March Releases! I wonder what will be in store for us tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day -- and get inky!
