Enjoy Life

Hi there!!

Hows everyone doin'??? Well i've been busy as i'm sure everyone is!! This was the first full week of classes and its off with lots to do!! And of course dumb me thought i was all good and ready for today's Be Inspired Challenge post, BUT i wasn't!! I found out Wednesday night when i went to up load my card and write my post, that instead i had a card for the NEXT challenge!! Duh!! So off to the craft table i went (after homework was done, of course!) and i made a quick card! My photo's are a little wonky too because i was trying to be all fast and i took my pictures in the early morning light (not good light to use!!)

But anyway here is my card for The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge. You have about about a week or so to play for your chance at a stamp set and be a guest designer!! Here is the photo inspiration:

This time around i took inspiration from the triangle of the tent along with the quilt like qualities of the tents fabric. So to make this card quick and easy i pulled out the TAWS set Tri-Me and stamped a few of the triangles on some different pattern paper. After a little testing i ended up using the grey in as i like how the pattern paper came through the ink just a little.

I cut out all the triangles and arranged them on my white card base a few times until i was happy with the placement. Quick application of double sided tape adhered them to my card base.

To keep things easy i used a kraft banner that was already cut and stamped the sentiment Enjoy Life from the Tri-Me set. I also found a wood button and tied a twine bow. I added the banner with foam dots and then glued on the button.

See super quick and easy and not that bad of a card either!! LOL I hope you play along with us at The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge!

Have a wonderful day!!

  1. Love that pattern you created. Great mix of colors and papers, this is a really fun one!

  2. I feel like I'm constantly saying it, but I'm sorry I'm so behind in visiting! Need more hours in a day. Those dino projects are ADORABLE!!! Love the living fossil card (might need that sentiment for hubby's next birthday, lol!) The medallion on cork is so cool (awesome save with the sequin glue!) and this? Pure genius. LOVE it :)

  3. I'm in awe at how eye-catching your card is and how quickly you worked under pressure. Brilliant! You pulled off a total gem here, Dana!! (and glad you tackled your homework first *grin*)
