ATC 3.6.5 Challenge Update:

Ok, so I got a little behind on my postings due to the redecoration project in daughter #1's room. I apologize, but I've still been good about keeping up with the card per day. Here are the cards from the days from the last posting until today.

The card from 1/28 is called "To Be Free". To make this card I cut out some script background from Tweety Jill collage paper. I then piece cut the bird cage from some beautiful Webster's Pages paper and glued on top of the background. For the bird, I stamped him onto a scrap of light blue patterned paper, piece cut him out and then glued him on the top left of the cage. I then chose the letters from the My Little Shoebox mini alpha stickers i have, and placed them at the top left of the card.

For the card I completed on 1/29 entitled "Singular Sensation", I started with a background cut from some Webster's Pages paper, also piece cutting the clock from the same paper, and glued it to the background, I then cut the image of the woman from my Tweety Jill collage pack, and adhered her to the background, having her overlap the clock just a little. Next I piece cut the butterfly from a sheet of Webster's Pages paper and adhered it to the top of the card with a thin pop up dot. Next I cut out the title from some scrap patterned paper and glued in the bottom right hand corner.

For the card I made on 1/30 entitled "Wicked Little Angel" I started with a scrap of patterned paper, and then piece cut the little girl. I stamped some wings on some scrap white paper, and I piece cut them out. Before gluing them onto the back of the girl, I highlighted them in with a clear star Gelly Roll pen. I then glued the entire image of the girl with wings onto the background. With a white uniball pen, I wrote the title and decorated the two upper corners with doodles.

The card I created on 1/31 is called "Exposition D'Art". In creating this card, I started out by stamping the background with a text stamp. From some Tweety Jill collage paper I cut a strip of pink swirled paper and scalloped the edge. I then lightly applied some white paint to the pink strip. Over the text I added a little color by applying some blue and green chalk from my Stencil collection pastels. I then cut an image from my Tweety Jill collage pack and adhered it to the background. I then piece cut the two butterflies from a piece of Webster's Pages vellum and adhered them to the card with some thin pop up dots. To decorate the flowers in the image, I cut thin strips of bright pink tissue paper and rolled them up. I then crushed them down a bit and glued them in place with some Tombow glue.

What I've Completed

Here's a few cards I recently made for daughter #1's birthday.

I really like to make cards. They are fun, and I really love the expressions on my daughters faces when they see what I've created just for them.

Well I hope you have enjoyed. I will be starting my Photomanipulation class with Susan Tuttle tomorrow so I will be posting on my progress, and the progress we are making on our redecoration project.

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
