Hi Crafty Friends,
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.
Yesterday was "Look up at the Sky Day", so our challenge this week is to include the sky in some way on your card.
Recently I saw a card created by Sandra McDonald where she used the Pinkfresh Studio Slimline Layered Starburst stencil set to create a sky background using yellow inks for an Easter card. I loved the look and as I had that stencil set, I decided to pull it out to create my sky background for this weeks challenge.
After I had creating the stencilled panel, I die cut the rectangle using Trinity Designs Slimline Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set.
As the design creates a white space in the centre of the design, I decided to hide that by adding a circle for a sun.
I added two layers of grass using MFT Stamps Slimline Grassy Hills die set. I also added a road by die cutting the Trinity Stamps stitched rectangle that I used to die cut the sky and then I used one of the border dies from MFT Stamps Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts die set for the curvy edge.
To decorate my card I used the bunnies on the scooter from Honey Bee Stamps Enjoy the Ride stamp set. I added the houses and trees from Lawn Fawn's Happy Village stamp set.
To finish off the card I added the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set.
For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card. I created another stencilled panel that I used on the front of the card. I cut the panel down the centre vertically and added each half to the edges of my card.
I added the bunnies on the tandem bicycle to the pop up panel. Finally I added a birthday sentiment from Altenew's Birthday Builder stamp set.
