Groovy Vase

Just having some fun with a Kristina Werner (Reader’s Choice !) Colour Inspiration, #4.  I LOVED the photo that Laura had submitted, what a photographer.  Gorgeous picture of a jelly fish & a fantastic jumping off for a colour inspiration.

The ‘Vase’ is an idea that I first saw from Kim Burmeister that uses, of all things, a Stampin’ Up Christmas ornament punch–just with the bottom point trimmed off.  Clever!  Had to case.

That’s all, thanks for the fun!

The papers:  My Minds Eye:  Just Dreamy Cards, K & Company Berry Sweet, ColorBox:  Friendly Forest.

Punches:  Stampin’ Up!:  Ornament Punch & 3 flower punch

Matchbox Twist

This week’s 3D Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet, 3D59,  is from Adela with a Twist on the Matchbox.  I used a template from Ruthannzaroff Mirkwood Designs for the inside matchboxes.  Check out the fun interpretations of matchboxes here in Paper Craft Planet’s 3d59 Gallery.

The only difference I did to the template was to angle the edges of the tab, because I found that it folded over more cleanly that way.

Throw on some super sticky tape.

Now for the outside I used the K & Company Que Sera Sera Mat Pack again.



Fold over around the two Matchboxes that have been sticky-taped together.

Trim it down a bit.

Cut down

For a different twist for edging, I used Tim Holtz Grunge Board.

… coloured with Color Box Ink.

I cut a slit in the back for the ribbon to run through.

and Bob’s Yur Uncle.

Hmmm maybe to hold earrings?  Something small.  Liam is suggesting a Hot Wheels car.  LOL Serves me right for asking him.

That’s all.

Oh here’s the back …

Pour Toi

Time for an Embellish Challenge.  Not my normal colours, but I really like the ring & it’s chunky carved look.  That’s sorta where I started with this card.  The “Ribbon” is more rick rack & pom poms, but I’m hoping it counts.  Much more pink too, hot pink, but pink.  Maybe it’s my screen, probably it’s the lighting.  Can I blame anything else for my inability to take a picture with accurate colours?

Here’s my card, using Colorbox Friendly Forest Mat Pack, Cream CS, & We Are Memory Keepers White Out Trim “ribbon”, Stampin’ Up! Calembours, Positively Pink SU! Ink, Word Window Punch.
