What does it mean that I just arrived home from out of town and headed straight for the crafting table!
I was only gone for a few days – but I feel out of practice…like I don’t even know what to do with all these supplies I have lying around – that’s a problem considering all the crafty supplies that I have jammed into my teensy apartment!
Sometimes I feel like I live inside of Tetris – move one thing and everything could crumble.
I have dreams of this crafting space … but until then, I’m following the directions of Mr. Tim Gunn – I’m making it work!
To get back into the crafty swing of things after a few days away, I took a gander at all the current challenges and happened upon the current WPlus9 Color Cue Challenge.
I love the combination of red and teal!
My first card has a warm feel to it…with a little depth that I added by embossing the images and popping out the Stampin’ Up Top Note Die with dimensional adhesive. Simple. Effective.
(Thanks to Deb C for sending me a bunch of these die cuts, since I don’t own the actual die)
My next card features a very different take on the colors from this challenge. Clean. Simple. Lots of white space.
This one layer wonder features a technique that I’ve been wanting to use for a while.
Well, I love the way layered tissue paper adds an interesting depth to the project, and the thinness of the tissue paper results in a really smooth image. It’s as if the tissue and cardbase are one layer.
