Artful INKables Twilight Challenge 1

How excited am I??? Artful INKables has decided that, in celebration of Eclipse hitting theatres this month, they were going to have a month long set of challenges! And a Blog Hop! Yes!!! Read all of the deets HERE.

The first challenge was to use any of the Twilight Saga book covers as inspiration. Well, being that my fave book in the series is Breaking Dawn, I just had to use that as my inspiration!

AI1

I kept this card a bit more simplistic then what I usually do, but the covers of these books are simplistic, so I wanted to stay true to that.

AI2

I, of course used my Artful INKables stamps to create this card. I stamped the queen, colored her with my pencils, cut her out and pop dotted her. She is sitting atop 2 copies of the harlequin image. One alone wasn’t big enough for what I was trying to do here. So I matched the 2 pieces together as closely as I could and glued them together.

AI3

I wanted to give off the idea of the text written at the bottom of the novel, so I added the “destined” which is from K & Co. I was going to do it on the black, but I thought that it was too low down there. Plus, I didn’t want to be overly literal with my take of the cover.

I can’t wait to see what the next challenge is! There’s a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! How great is that???

One a side note, I’d like to invite you back here tomorrow. Many of you are big fans of The Greeting Farm, and the Smeared & Smudged Design Team is having a super special blog hop featuring some of their new “Creeper” digis!!! So please, join me and the rest of the gals bright and early tomorrow! It is going to be SO much fun!!!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
