Here it is, Friday already. And we're finishing up the week with two related sets. Again I'm not an official part of the blog hop, but I really enjoyed these two sets -- one a 4 x 6 set and the other a mini. My first card was made with just the moon and a sentiment from the Sun and Moon set. I found some old "starry" patterned paper in a drawer and thought it would be a good background. I actually stamped the moon on another piece of card stock and cut it out. Then I stamped it again with Versafine Onyx Black directly onto the background paper and glued my cut-out on top. That way I would get the curly-cues to show on the background paper without going blind trying to cut around them!
My second project is not a card at all but an altered Laughing Cow Cheese package.
I put a scallop circle piece of yellow card stock inside to match the one on the front. You could put some candy or even a gift card inside this little box. I used the sponged sun rays technique behind my sun. Here is the tutorial I wrote for Speedy TV for this technique.
The mini set this month is Heavenly Harmony. When I was in Pennsylvania in May for my Mom's funeral, I stayed with my brother. I had seen a digital copy of Heavenly Harmony earlier; and, when I saw this plaque hanging in his kitchen, I knew I would use it for inspiration. Here is a photo of the plaque. You can see that the colors are sort of reversed as to what you would expect of this image -- the sun is blue and purple, and the moon is yellow.
I am going to send my card to my sister-in-law for her birthday in October and tell her that the plaque was my inspiration.
My final project for this week's blog hop was probably the most fun of all. I used all three images from both of today's sets for it. It is a little mobile that I made using printable shrink plastic, some wire, and a hanger-shaped paper clip.
