The challenge with the As You See It Challenge blog is a speed challenge with humor. Create a card under 10 minutes and should be funny. I love these speed challenges as it really gets your adrenaline pumping. I pulled out my cardstock, decided on my stamps and design and got busy. The image and sentiment are both from an Inkadinkadoo clear stamp set probably from 2007. I have mini stamps of the same kind of stamps and they are dated 2007 so I’m figuring this stamp set is from the same time period. The images are really fun in this set.
Anyway I stamped them in black ink and die cut the circle (GKD large circle single stitched die) from white cardstock and die cut the Spellbinder’s scalloped nestabilities circlein black for the layering portion. I actually had to do this step twice since I couldn’t line the circle up on the scalloped piece….still not perfect but keeping it as time was ticking. The green panel was run through my Big Shot using Cuttlebug’s Happy Birthday embossing folder. The HB sentiment was fussy cut and finished in 9 minutes 41 seconds….WHEW ! I really cut this card close to the 10 minute deadline.
Our daughter’s birthday is in December and this card is definitely going to her. LOL…she should love it but I wonder if she thinks she’s more like me or her father. I can tell you it’s her dad!!!
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Hope you enjoyed the last weekend in summer! Stay safe.
