I just spent H O U R S making five cards, and I don't even like one of them. I should just toss this paper, but nooooooo, I'm so stubborn I now feel compelled to use every last bit of it. And you get to see the results of my labors from earlier this evening.
First up, I made two of these:
I started looking at the OWH sketches, and ended up combining two of them - Sketch #14 and Sketch #26. I liked the angled rectangle of #14:
(vertical once I turned it on its ear) So basically I took sketch #26 and angled the rectangle. At least as my starting point.
I still had those blasted pink polka dot pieces, so I added some remnants of the turquoise chevron from the same paper stack only to find they were too short. Then I cheated:
Not long enough? No problem!!!! Just hack it in two. :) You can also see some of the other papers I have left. Sigh.
That card again, since I've been blathering:
The sentiment was left from the batch of spotted bears I made earlier, and I got all crazy and put it straight onto the angled dotted piece. I kinda like it. The heart was die-cut from another remnant.
Same layout, different sentiment, and I added some twine. And a heart.
Next I bring you my "when more is really too much" entry:
I think if the angled panel wasn't polka dotted, this might have worked. There's too much going on. I did get creative, though, and cut a slit in the dotted panel to slip the white strip through so there was some tan under the globe image. Still too too too too much. I may have to operate.
And the last one for tonight:
This one is different - different remnant of paper on an angle. I added the stamped light bulb and put the sentiment on the card base. It was a yawner, so I went back and stamped another filament for the heart part, colored it, cut it out, glued it on and added Glossy Accents. This one isn't so bad.
I will say, though, I tried to figure out how to lose the "will" from the sentiment. I think it would sound better as "I feel a glow just thinking of you".
I still have more paper left, and I'll probably stare at it a bit tomorrow. Thankfully those papers will need white card bases since I'm all out of the Latte. I've used ALL THE LATTE PAPER. All gone. And that's a total of 31 OWH cards this weekend, too. Wheee!
Thanks for stopping by!
