Today on TMITA/PCC Nina has asked us to make a card using any of her images or the one she has on the blog today.
It's Selma's turn for the challenge this week. Selma has asked us to use a circle and some lace.
I chose one of Nina's new images for my Card 'Mr Twitter'. Just click on the Paper Cupcakes blinkie on the side panel here to go take a look at all the sweet images available.
I know I probably say it every week but I love this image, he's just so sweet!!
So what have I done...... printed him once sized, and coloured with Copics.
Cut with a Spellbinder circle die.
Gathered some lace then pierced around the circle to add the lace by sewing through the pierced holes to the back of the circle.
At the same time adding the pink bugle beads around the front.
That was the image ready to go.
My base card measures 5.5 inches square and I used GKD pure luxury heavyweight card in Ivory. To this I added a layer of American Crafts scarlet followed by the DP which is from Cloud 9Design called 'So in Love'.
Using a Martha Stewart Daisy Fan Punch I punched some of the Scarlet card and finished this with a layer of Cloud9Design 'Love U Dots'. Once this was added to the card I've added the two little heart embellishments which I'd coloured with Copics. The image was attached next with some foam tape to pop it up.
I added the two Mulberry roses and the red ribbon rose over some punched fern. Added the pink stick pin and the cream flower embellishments with a Kaisercraft pearl as the centre.
The sentiment, 'Be my Tweetie' is computer generated onto more Ivory card cut using a Spellbinder heart die (thanks Kez, need to add one of these to my wish list!) as was the scalloped scarlet matt. To sit this at the angle I attached the sentiment onto a narrow folded strip of card and just tucked some foam tape into the crease. This next picture shows how the sentiment sits at a slight angle.
On the inside of this card I just punched a small heart that sits centred on the left hand page.
This card needed it's own box, so I made a plain white box and decorated the lid as follows:
1st layer: scarlet card.
2nd layer: Love U Dots dp set to about half point followed by......
3rd layer: Daisy Fan punched from 'So in Love'. To sit along the base with some pale pink ribbon tied to the side over the join of the two DP's.
4th layer: Cuttlebug embossed Scarlet card cut with the scalloped heart die in two sizes. The smaller one popped up with foam tabs. This embossing folder is called Kimmy-Luvs !!
5th layer: I used the 'I heart you' image from PCC printed it quite small, coloured it with Copics and hand wrote the 'for you' sentiment. This image was cut out and attached with more foam tabs.
To finish my box I added the tiny pearls and another coloured heart in the top right hand corner, and a larger pearl between each of the fans along the bottom.
I had lots of fun with this one and when it was finished gave it to Walshie saying this was a card for him to give me this year!!!!
I don't think I could part with this one.....lol.
Are you going to take Selma's challenge this week? I hope so, check out the DT's cards I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration and there is a prize for the randomly picked winner.
Looking forward to seeing all your creations.
