Make It Monday #58 & CFC 44

March 20, 2012

I have two cards to share today!  The first one uses Nichole’s graduated background technique which I’m really glad I have the right copics that blend easily with each other *phew!*  This was based on a rough sketch that I did at work, except it turned out a little different than what I had in mind, but the good different 🙂 How’s this for CFC44 at CAS-ual Friday Challenge?  Pattern? √  Image? √  Sentiment?  √

The second card was based on a sketch that I did at work as well.  I had a coffee sleeve from Starbucks which I really liked the “decaf”, “syrup”, “shots” tick box so I mimicked that part and wrote in “awesome”, “brilliant” and “fantastic”.  Then once the zipper is peeled away, it reveals a little sentiment.

MIM #58 card – Used: Papertrey Ink (White cardstock, Shakers & Movers: sentiments) | Lawn Fawn (Partly Cloudy stamp set) | Stampin’ Up Brilliant Blue, Cool Carribean ink) | Stampin’ Up (Dimensionals) | Copics (B00, B02, BG10) | Others (clear embossing powder, blue rinestones)

    Oh my goodness I love these two cards. The colours are just pefect – so subtle. The shading on the umbrella so pretty, and the “raindrops” are beautiful. You’ve recreated the starbucks cup so cleverly too. Well done you!

  3. I absolutely adore both of these cards. Beautiful job. did you use re-inkers or copics for the first card? TFS

      I don’t have any reinkers so I used copics: B00, B02 and BG10. Luckily they “somewhat” blend together 😛

  4. Two great cards. You did an awesome job with the challenge. Love the bling. The intereactive card is great too. Love how you used the Starbucks sleeve.
