And so it begins. I've decided to go about creating cards through set, that way no new set is ignored accidently. Before I share my creations so far tonight, I suppose you are all on the edge of your seats about the giveaway... I've decided to part with my French Flair calendar, I will also be making a Big and Little Pieces one with a different font (now seen on the left!). Anyway, for the giveaway, please post a comment, and include a link to your absolute favorite creation of your own. If you don't have a gallery, that's fine too, then tell me your favorite technique. These will have absolutely no bearing on the winner, I just want to see your favorite creations and hear about your favorite techniques. So please, comment on THIS post if you would like to be in the drawing for the calendars. This contest will close on MONDAY EVENING (that's the15th)
Now, on with the show...the first set I used was Very Punny. I made 3 different cards with it.
Here's the first one I made. Since I was using the cow image, I went with my recent favorite colour combination inspired by the Loves Me paper. I also had fun adding the scalloped and punches border. This one was created with the slit punch, I used the 1/8 for the little punches within the scallops.
Next I made this crazy card. Again, I went with the colours that were inspired by the animal in use. I chose the ladybug, so black and red it was! Once again, I used the slit punch to make the scallops around the main image. However, I used the corner rounder for the outside scallops. The big differences between these 2 punches is the direction and size. The slit makes a more bubbled scallop and if you want to use the scallops as I have, you have to cut them out and hide them under something. The corner rounder makes a more shallow scallop and you can use it to go around you entire piece of paper, very convenient. I like the look of them both. My last card uses the frog. I went with greens and dots. Once again, I did the spotty embossing on gable green. I paired that with a tri-coloured Dotted. Once again, I used my corner rounder to make the scalloped circle.
