UDI Color Challenge #182

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #182

I sure hope you are not tired of seeing this stamp set yet!  This week’s color challenge is inspired (and CASED) from Jan Tinkleberg.  I was drawn to the “searchlight” effect.  I created it with a stamping sponge and some post-it notes to mask the light and dark colors.

Super Hero Thanks

This is a super simple card that I put together using the awesome Calling All Heroes Photopolymer Stamp Set.  This stamp set has a full stylized alphabet with builder pieces to create your own customized superhero or villain.  Perfect for the comic book junkie, for me it just brings back childhood memories of buying a comic book for $0.20!  Is that not crazy?

Super Hero Card for Danny!

I saw this story on the news as well as on Facebook and was moved by this story.  So I made a special “super hero” birthday card for him.  Here is the story about this adorable little boy: http://abc7.com/family/5-year-old-boy-battling-cancer-wants-birthday-cards/209037/

Here is my “super hero” birthday card for Danny!  I used the Calling All Heroes Photopolymer stamp set.  I loved how the skyline turned out!  Lots of cutting and piecing the buildings together, not to mention coloring in the windows.

UDI Color Challenge #181

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…another installment of the UDI Color Challenge.  Here is our color inspiration photo.

Color Challenge #181

This is my least favorite card to make, I guess we all have certain cards that are difficult to create.  I received a message through Facebook about my friend’s 97 year old grandma that passed away a few days ago.  So I felt is was necessary to let her know that I am thinking of her during this difficult time.

Bloomin’ Birthday

This birthday card is a CASE from page 240 of the Annual Catalog.  Instead of the base cardstock that was used in the catalog, I used Whisper White as the base and then cut a piece of the Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags as a layer.  I LOVE how simple and elegant this card is!

Kinda Eclectic Hinged Handled Bag

I LOVE how this gift bag turned out.  It is the perfect size for a small gift!  The front panel (stamped piece) was CASED from Mindy Backes ~ thanks Mindy for the inspiration!

127

128

Would you like to know the dimensions of the bag?  I thought you would say yes, so here you go:

Cardstock – 8” x 11″

Score on the 11” side @ 4-1/2” and 6-1/2”

Score on the 8” side @ 2” and 6”

The stamped piece of cardstock is 4-1/4” x 3-3/4”

The handle is 11” x 3/4″

 

I hope that you enjoy making one of these, just as much as I did!
