I was asked by the lovely ladies over at SOS! Challenge Blog if I would like to be their guest designer for June! HA! How could I possibly pass up an offer like that?! So naturally, I said YES!! straight away.
This weeks challenge is UFO's - no, no, not those mysterious flying spaceships, but..
You know what I mean.. you die cut this and that, then end up setting it aside because 'You'll use it at some point - you gotta keep it'. The photo frames or canvasses your buy to 'alter' and they end up sitting around looking sorry for themselves.. well this is the perfect opportunity to get them out and actually USE them!!
These three pictures depit the bits and bobs I've had sitting about 'pre made' so to speak for a while now, which I pulled together to make this card. The first picture is a bunch of pink flowers I made a while back, using a mixture of prima flowers, WOC flowers, buttons, bakers twine and brads. The middle picture shows a shaped card I made when I first got this set of Pinking Circles nesties. I cut a bunch of card bases, infact.. I went a little crazy.. so I still have loads left. The picture on the right shows strips of patterned paper. When I make a card, if I use patterned paper I generally trim the left over bits so they're neat and usable. Here is a bunch I had from Cosmo Cricket - Upcycle collection.
Onto the card.. it's pretty self explanatory me thinks. I added some SU! Certainly Celery cardstock which I had embossed with the Swiss Dots EF, as well as a couple of other flowers from WOC. The cutsie little letter stickers are from Sassafras and are the perfect size for cards! Gotta stock up on those beauties!
So.. what are you waiting for?! Head on over to the SOS! Challenge blog right now and suck up some awesome inspiration from the other ladies then head into that craft space and get creating with those things you have been keeping for aaages 'just incase'! ;)
