Happy Monday everyone. These next two weeks I will be hosting Creative Sisters Monday
Challenge, and I am so excited to announce my very first Guest Designer!
Please welcome Jennifer from http://jenscraftcorner.com/ She writes:I am so excited to be the first Guest Designer!! Thank you Linda for inviting me to do this! I have been scrapbooking for about ten years. It started out as an occasional hobby that I did with friends around their dinning room table. Over time, not only was it a hobby, but it became part of me. I started to make cards several months ago and love it!
Recently, I started Jen's Craft Corner! I had wanted my own blog for a while, but was nervous about setting it up and maintaining it. However, it has been up and running for a few months and it has been the best thing I have ever done! I have met some wonderful bloggers and have been inspired by so many talented ladies. So, come on over and visit http://www.jenscraftcorner.com/ Leave me a comment or message and let me know you saw me on Linda's site.
This is an A2 card with a brown base
I cut a mat in a light blue Palm Tree: cut at 4 1/2 using my Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. The leaves were cut twice to give it some depth. I have pop dots between each layer. The trunk was embossed using my Cuttlebug, to make it look like palm tree bark Monkey: cut at 4 1/2 using B is for Boy cartridge. Doodled on his belly with my red gel pen. I embossed his hat with my Cuttlebug. Used dimensionals to pop him off the card. Doodled around his belly with red gel pen
I cut a brown piece of paper rounded at the top for the sand on the island and put some Stickles on it to give it some depth
Think Spring: Cut at 1/2 inch using my Pooh Font cartridge
I doodled with my white gel pen around the outside edges of the card
This weeks challenge is all about EMBOSSING. Use any cartridge you like as long as you have some sort of embossing on your project. How easy is that? This challenge will run for two weeks ending on Sunday, March 6th. Please link your project with Mr. Linky down below, leave a comment and become a follower. If you are interested in being my next Guest Designer, please let me know, I would love to have you!
