Hi Blog Friends!
I can HARDLY BELIEVE that one week of Summer Card Camp is ALMOST over! Day 4 & we were challenged to make a card in 10 minutes! I don't think I did too bad although, I DON'T LIKE MY CARD! BLAH! We were also challenged to make a card with a SHAPE! I don't have any Grand Dies, so I used my Classic Scalloped Heart Die. Of course, thinking Valentines!
One of the things you HAVE TO DO, to make a card in
You have to have a PLAN! And LAY OUT all of your supplies!
I laid out some things I wasn't even sure I'd use too!
(Like I wasn't sure which size hand punch I'd use!) And I laid the stamps on the acrylic blocks I thought I'd use too! And had my paper pre-cut! I SHOULD HAVE gone ahead & scored it too!
My timer went off as I glued down the Collaged heart onto the card base & I ONLY needed to add the center punched circle! Not too bad! BUT, I also have to say, I am NOT ONE who needs to make cards in a dash, some people do! I PLAN WAAAAAAY AHEAD!!!!
I showed my card to my husband & expressing I didn't like it! He said, " You can NOT rush an Artist!" LOL I'll remember that, like when I'm putting on my make-up & we have somewhere to go!
Well, I guess I have to show you my card now, right? BE KIND?
(But, BE TRUTHFUL TOO, OK?)
10 Minute Challenge Card
For my second card, I decided to combine two of the challenges & not worry too much about the 10 minute part! One of the challenges was on Colored Die Cuts & another on Die Cut Letters so, I combined them! I set the timer & worked as I would if I WERE doing the 10 min. challenge. I went WAAAAAAYY OVER in time! The timer went off as I was coloring the die cut. I had already scored the card base edges & die cut & embossed what was needed. TIME WAS UP!
"OOPS OVER the 10 minute challenge card"
It's a little hard to see the "Pumpkin" font being white on white! So, I used colored card stock behind to help it show up! The white on white font is something that the designer did & I LIKED IT!
HOPE YOU LIKE!
(See you tomorrow!)
