Yea, the weekend is almost upon us and I'm so pleased to be guest designing over at the Catered Crop. I was lucky enough to have my entry for their last challenge - Good Birthdays - chosen as a winner, and the prize is to be a guest designer for their current challenge. This time Linda has asked us to have a travel theme:-
"Whether you like to travel on a bicycle, motorcycle, car, plane, train, boat, or camper . . . across the world or in your back yard, this challenge is wide open to anything related to travel. Show us where you’ve been or where you hope to go. However you want to travel, where ever you wander, add us as your escort."
Well I looked through my stash and was startled to find that I only have one travel style stamp set and that is 'Enjoy the Ride' from Papertrey Ink, which has the most lovely car that I die cut and stamped with little flowers that reminded me of the flower power retro VW cars from years ago. I actually made two versions of the card. The first one has a road that I cut on my SilhouetteCameo,
The second card has a white panel that I stamped with polka dots before over-stamping with the sentiments
I first stamped the 'happy birthday and wanted to put enjoy the ride underneath, but it went over the tail of the y and looked messy, so I took my courage in my hands and (gasp) cut my stamp apart! The panel was embossed with the canvas impression plate and I cut one corner with a corner chomper before raising it on the base card with foam dots.You can see a bit of reflection in the acetate window and this time the headlights were enamel dots from My Minds Eye. I think I prefer this one, but I enjoyed trying different colours with almost the same layout.
Thank you to Linda and the team for letting me play with you this week!
Thanks for stopping by.
