Our challenge for the Double D Challenges is to use Summer Gingham on your project. After thumbing through my supply of Gina K Designs patterned paper packs, I chose this light aqua-ish piece of gingham and cut it into strips. The strips along with a few solid pieces of cardstock were glued to a clear transparencies sheet and then die cut it with a GKD circle die. After die cutting, I popped the “floating” image with foam strips, dry embossed the card base with a Momenta embossing folder, added a Tim Holtz Sizzix layering butterfly die and stamping the sentiment from Stampendous’ Daisy Thanks stamp set in gold embossing powder. The Floating strips tutorial was from Splitcoaststampers and can be found here.
The pink card was the first card I created using the floating strips idea, cut out a dandelion die and smeared some glossy accents on it, stamping the background with Simon Says Stamps’ halftone square background stamp and adding a Bonnie sentiment. This one is not for the Double D Challenge but thought I’d share it anyway.
This is the Mood board for the gingham challenge to be used as inspiration.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great weekend everyone!!
