High Hopes Challenge #33!!


Happy Sundy morning, stampers!! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend off as much as I am! It's lovely and sunshiney here in Ontario and I think it's going to be another wonderful spring day!!

This week's challenge over at the High Hopes Blog, which is brought to us by the lovely Niki Estes, is called No Corners!! We'd like to see some shaped designs, like circles, ovals, hexagons, octagons..haha..or just rounded corners. We'd just like you to create anything but a square or rectangle card. Sounds fun, right?? And if you join us, you could win some awesome rubber!!

To be quite honest, I've never made any shaped card, so this was a new adventure to me. I'd seen lots of people use their large Nestabilities dies to made card, so I thought I would try that. I pulled out my largest Curved Rectangle die and cut a card out of Kiwi Kiss cardstock, leaving the top edge just off the cardstock, so that it would leave the fold intact. Then I used the next size down to cut out some of the lovely Three Bugs in a Rug patterned paper.

I stamped Miss Zoe on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers. I matted her on Kiwi Kiss, then pop dotted that layer on Baja Breeze. I stamped the sentiment on the dp and added a Basic Grey button with linen thread! Voila! My first shaped card! That was fun!!




Well, I'm going to be busy working on some stuff for upcoming classes at Scrappin' Great Deals and maybe playing with some new stuff that I picked up yesterday! Hope you get to play too!!
