Design them member Mariska has come up with a really fun card making challenge! We've made the deadline several weeks away so if anyone wants to use the Sweet Pea stamps there will be plenty of time to make your card once you receive your new stamps. Have fun!!
The Either / Or / Or And Challenge
created by Mariska
The challenge means you have to make two choices:
1. What kind of card are you going to make:
There are two happy occasions to celebrate at Pink Cat Studio this month. The first one you already know... we've gotten ourselves a little one!! The second is that Pink Cat Studio celebrates its fourth year this month!! I thought both of these occasions would deserve a card but which one to use for my challenge.
YOU DECIDE!! Create EITHER a birthday card OR a card to celebrate a new baby
2. Either layer your image and/or use stitches:
I thought it would be nice to let you use a technique I like to use myself. The two things that I use frequently on my cards are the layering of an image and stitches. You can use one of these techniques or both, that's up to you, as long as one of them is used.
With the layering of an image I mean stamping your image several times and cutting out little parts to pop up on your image. You can do this with all kinds of materials like pop up glue, foam cubes or pop up glue dots. It's really making 3D cards with your stamps.
Please visit Mariska's blog to see photos of how she did the layering in her challenge card.
I think stitches on your card should speak for themselves. You can use a machine or by hand, you can do straight lines or you can embroider, just use REAL stitches please. If you decide to stitch by hand (as I always do) my advice is to first make little holes with a piercer.
YOU DECIDE!! Use 3D layers in your stamped image AND/OR use stitches
Date the challenge ends:
