SAF Make It Work Challenge

 --Create a new card from pieces of reject cards or alter a card from earlier today that you were not happy with. 

I was trying for a single layer card, found my card lacked "UMPH" and "Wow"

Before Card

 After Card Making it Work!!!

I can hear Tim Gunn saying make it work!! My first card uses the Garden Gild stamp set on one layer. A bit too plain and uninspiring. After the judges in my head said you really missed the mark on this one I went back to the studio and added the Garden Gild cover plate and die cut some of the additional flowers. I painted the flowers with my Zig Real Brush markers and also added some sequins to give that extra POP. The judges in my head were much happier with this second card. YEA!!!

SAF 2015 Red Carpet Finale

What a fabulous and FUN day at Papertrey Ink Stamp A Faire 2015!!! Here is my closing picture of me wearing my wonderful new felt necklace with a few of my SAF cards in the background.

This week's Make It Monday is a fun challenge, using lots of white and just a pop of color. Thanks to PTI designer Lexi Daly the video tutorial and card samples she made can really inspire one to give this challenge a try.

I have been having fun experimenting with my laminator and Deco Foil to create  foil die cuts. The technique used on this card starts with a solid black square of laser ink  from my printer. You then cut out your die cut from the black laser ink, run it through the laminator with the foil placed over the top of the die cut in a parchment paper sandwich. The parchment paper is thin and allows the heat from the laminator to adhere the foil while making sure the die cut doesn't get stuck in your laminator.

 my card

Supplies~ PTI linen CS(Base), Stamper Select for the die cut, thank you die, Deco Foil and Purple Cow brand laminator.
Thank you for stopping by, please leave a comment.  Have a blessed day! Angie
