Hey Crafters!!! I did not get my mail from PTI today, so the following posts are going to be a whirl wind as I try to get these thinks to the inlinkz before 7am tommorrow am. *(update: This challenge has been extended 1 day, according to the little time ticker at the bottom of the inlinkz photos of everyone’s projects, that I saw by accident). And there is still time to enter Day 1’s challenges that end Feb 15th 7am.
Today’s challenge is to use stripes!
It all started with this card base. I didn’t think I had any stamps with stripes from PTI, I went to my stamps to search. The stripes on my card came from Button Boutique (that vertical image with 25 Cents near the top). You will quickly see why I had to be very strategic stamping with it to not get the 25 cents.
This base got an ink smudge on it and I originally abandoned it and went on. After I was done with my 4 cards, I was like, where is that original practice card? I used some die cuts to cover the smudge and it morphed into a simple cameo from Iconic Images. The dies are from Stampin’UP!/Sizzix Ovals and Labels. I had to trim the bottom of the card for balance, so it’s not quite 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, it’s less than 5 1/2 inches. Costal Cabana from SU is the ink for the stripes and Ranger Archival Jet Black for the cameo.
