TGIF Challenges 103

Happy Easter everyone! It’s funny because what I remember about Easter is that we brought Taylor home from the hospital when she was born on Easter Sunday and it snowed! Another fun filled day at the Store. I was very productive and managed to get three cards made! After work some dinner with the Parent’s and the I spent the rest of the evening watching TV and working on fixing a friends computer. I really hate Windows PC’s, I think I have mentioned that before! LOL! Today I’ll be going to my Parent’s for Easter. My Brother and Erika will be coming over with the kiddies and Taylor will be there too! Should be a fun day!

One of the cards that I made yesterday actually sort of worked for this week’s TGIF Challenges sketch…

I started off by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Moonstone, Fish Tank, Freshly Cut Grass and Black Licorice Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. To my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a strip of American Crafts Black Glitter Tape to each side and then adhered the panel with my stamped images to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The wonderful is from the Concord & 8th Wonderful Words Dies and is cut three times from Black. I adhered them to each other and to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The rest of the greeting is from the Concord & 9th Kindhearted Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice onto a strip of Solar White 80lb. I adhered that to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I was going to add a few sequins but liked it just the way it is! I hope that you like my card for the TGIF Challenge! Thank you for spending some of your Eater with me! Have a fun day with your peeps! πŸ™‚

  1. Lovely, Justin. As usual. Something about that black and blue combo always works! And I think you made the right decision about the sequins since you have the glitter paper on the edges. It pops just enough. Well done. Have a wonderful Easter!
