Finally came up with a couple of ideas for the Twofer #16 challenge started by the talented and wonderful Darnell and her friends. The idea of wheels was difficult for me as I had no stamps labeled wheels in my stash. Anyone else use Evernote? Love it to have all my stamps, embossing folders, and dies indexed. Well, except when I label things incorrectly or do not tag every part of a set.
Anyway, here are my cards. The duo is up first showing a masculine birthday card and a card wishing safe travels for a friend going to travel around Europe.
The wheel stamp is from my under-used set by Uniko Studio called Today, Tomorrow & Always Time. I had thought of this stamp as showing cogs inside a clock or watch. Today, I am sure they are wheels. Right? They are round like wheels whatever they are. Right?
Some close-ups for each card next along with some details of how they were made.
For the birthday card, I made the background on white cardstock by stamping numerous times until I was satisfied. This is a big stamp which I fit onto my 5 X 6 acrylic block. I die cut out a rectangle with my NBUS SU set called Rectangle Stitched Framelits. It is a nice set with 13 dies. This time I used SU Basic Gray ink. My split focal point areas are on a Basic Gray card base. The card is a CASE of one by Greta at GG Creations. Thank you Greta. The narrow layers are done in a retired color by SU called Takin With Teal. Using the same color, I die cut the happy birthday with a Greetings Top Edgers die by Impression Obsession IO Dies. The letters are free standing attached to the bottom part of the design. Both parts of the design are popped up for dimension.
So that is it for this time. It was fun making these two cards. Thanks for dropping by and your commenting is really appreciated.
