My first card is serving two purposes – the Stampin’B’s challenge for this week and also Day 3 of the Blog Hop.
Faith was the hostess for this week’s Stampin’B’s challenge, and she wanted us to make a scenic card. I created my scene using the mountains from Regal and Proud, sponged with Tim Holtz Distressed ink (Tea Dye and Bundled Sage) and then cut out. I glued it to a piece of yellow cardstock embossed with the Tim Holtz Rays embossing folder, which I had inked up with TH Wild Honey. The bottom panel is also embossed – this time with the Cuttlebug folder Distressed Branches.
My second project was a little more involved – a pop-out card, which I made with the help of my Ultimate Crafters Companion. There was lots of masking and sponging in making this card. The same mountain scene from the front was used again inside. This time the eagle is suspended on a piece of twine in the opening. The black flourishes on the inside were cut using a long Sizzix die.
I doubt that the mountains in this set represent the Smokey Mountains, but these salt and pepper shakers are the only ones I have that seemed appropriate for today.
Don’t forget -- For another chance to win a free stamp set, be sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the design team and comment on each.
