Card Layout Challenge #270

This week’s challenge was suggested by Barb Ingerson.  Barb admired the folded card that Yvonne Jenks, a long time member of OSA, made for a mingle.  I agreed!  Yvonne was so generous in providing us with directions for her card.  I also was lucky that Yvonne sent me a RAK of one these cards.  Thank you, Yvonne!

Card Layout Challenge #269

This week’s challenge is a card found on the blog Pixie Hill.  The artist is Nichola Battilana, who designs for Graphic 45 paper. The challenge is to make a card with the layout of a basic card and a small tag.  The card must be landscape as shown.  The challenge is not for using Graphic 45 paper.  However, you are most certainly welcome to do so.  I know a number of us has the Bird Song collection, which is Asian inspired.  

To view her card go here.

Card Layout Challenge #268

This week’s card challenge has to do with scoring!  If you have a paper cutter with a scoring attachment, or if you have a Scor-Pal, you will be able to make this card.  The main focus is a layered piece that has scoring lines that look like sun rays. You can make this layer any size you want, just as long as the score lines are visible and an obvious major design of the card.

This card is from http://mystampingaddiction.blogspot.com/You will find two cards on Lynette’s page with this design, one yellow and one red.  Here is the red card.

 

The yellow card has a tutorial.  You can find the card here.  The embedded tutorial on that page does not work. You can find the tutorial on YouTube here.

Let’s see what you can create giving the card an Asian flair!

Card Layout Challenge #267

Today was a beautiful day here in Wisconsin.  After the endless winter, we finally had a very enjoyable spring day.  My crocuses are blooming, my tulips are beginning to break through the ground, and my husband brought out my chaise lounge chair to enjoy the sun!  With all this spring thing going on, I thought it would be great to have a ‘WELCOME SPRING’ challenge.

I pinned this card on my Pinterest board a while back, hoping to make it as some point.  How about now?  Take a look at the card below.  It comes from the blog Stamping with Loll. The vase is an ornament punch that had the bottom cut off to look like a vase.  It was then stamped on. It looks like the vase is popped-up.   Although the branches of the plant is a die-cut, you can use a rubber stamp and have the same effect.  The flowers can be stamped on the card, as well.  They can also be stamped, colored, cut, and adhered to the branches to give some dimension.

Your card MUST be oriental in nature.  It MUST have at least one stamped image.
