As you may recall, I became a member of the Card A Day Challenge Design Team this year. I just finished up my week for February and I wanted to share my cards with you. In case you wanted to see January’s cards as well, you can click here.
Each day of the week has a different theme, as follows:
Clean & Simple Sunday: Thinking of You
I submitted two cards for this challenge. If you click on the card, it will link you to the post on Card A Day Challenge where I shared the basic recipe for each card.
Mistletoe Monday: Must Include Snowflakes
Tuesday Color Challenge:
Here was the inspiration piece:
And here was my card:
It’s strange, but with respect to the blue colors on the inspiration piece they look different on my laptop than they do my desktop and still different on my iPhone. On my laptop, which is where I work on my cards, the darkest blue matches the blue in my card exactly. On my desktop, the blues I saw on my laptop looked almost green. And the iPhone looks blue, but more like a turquoise rather than a royal blue…so I don’t know what color it is, really. But I do like the card I made in response to the challenge.
Wednesday Sketch Challenge:
Here was the sketch:
And here was my card:
You’ll notice I flipped the image and I think it looks pretty good going in the opposite direction.
Thursday Technique Challenge: Copics or Alcohol Markers
I had two digital images and couldn’t decide which one I wanted to use, so I made them both into cards because they were just too cute not to.
Friday CASE a Card Challenge:
Here is the card we were to CASE:
And here’s my card:
I have to say, as simple as this card is, it’s probably my favorite of the bunch. Couldn’t tell you why.
Saturday Surprises: Washi Tape
Monthly Blog Hop: LEAP
And this would be my second favorite. This card had to use components to spell out LEAP, so I used a Labrador for the L, Embossing for the E, Acetate for the A and the Panel of Subway Art (or Paw if you prefer) for the P. The part I love about this card (aside from the dog as I always love dog themed cards) is that the center panel appears as if it floats as it’s attached to acetate. There are lots more pictures if you click on the card or go to my gallery.
