I did it! I made an easel card!
I have been wanting to make one of these bad boys, but would either forget, or be too intimidated, or not have enough time, mojo, etc.
Well, there's nothing like a challenge to make ya do something!
The Greeting Farm is having a little battle of the stampers challenge!
Ok, "little" is not the right word. it's kinda HUGE! There were over 60 teams to start, all with 3-5 stampers per team! Thats a lot of stampers!
My team is named Coast to Coast Stampers since we all live pretty much across the country from each other! Gotta love the online crafting community!
Each week a different team member must complete the challenge and this week it was my turn!
The challenge was to make an easel card! So make one i did! (and it was a lot of fun!)
Here is my card...
I used one of the Wild Sprouts named Stella. I love this girl! The stamp makes me want to cut my hair it's so stinkin' cute! Then i remember i dont LIKE my hair short. hahahah!
Here's a view of the "easel" aspect of the card. By the way, i followed THIS TUTORIAL for my easel card. :)
I used My Mind's Eye paper from the Quite Contrary line. LOVE this paper! It's double sided so you can see both sides on my card (the polka dot is one side and the argyle is the other.
I also decided to paper piece her dress, but then her arms seemed to get lost so i stamped her arms again and layered them on soem foam adhesive so they would actually sit higher than the paper pieced dress.
For my sentiment, i wanted something a little "lovey" since Stella is holding an envie sealed with a heart. Then i remembered this sentiment from the Keep Cozy set (which is actually a set with snowmen, but this sentiment was perfect!)
Ok, so here's my little catch for this post. The battle of the stampers is a voting contest! Now i'm not saying you have to vote for my card. but i know that i will really feel terrible if my Tangii (3rd team player for the Coast to Coast Stampers) never gets to play, so if you do like my card, and would like to vote... you can do so HERE. :)
THanks so so much for stopping by today! A little later i'll have my sneak peek post up for Paper Makeup Stamps! :)
