i have a huge post started about my CHA experience, with lots of photos of the fun people i got to meet. but it's long and it's not done yet. so i think i'm going to save that for tomorrow or monday. in the meantime, i wanted to share a few more of my making memories projects that i saw up in the booth.
this card was made using the new sock hop font design card, the pen tips, and the just chillin collection. i sliced the letters from brown pattern paper, using the "normal" setting. and then i used the pen tips to draw the letters on white cardstock, using the "shadow" setting. i cut the pen drawn letters out my hand, and then layered the brown letters on top.
for the card itself, i adhered a piece of lined pattern paper first, and then a piece of yellow vellum on top of it to soften it up a little. i then sliced a large circle from the orange star pattern paper, using the basic shapes design card. i pop dotted that entire piece of orange paper to my card, for extra dimension. then just added some ribbon, brads, and a button to finish it off.
this little mini album cover was done with the summer design card. the album is one of MM older albums, from the cheeky collection. along the edge, i simply adhered some paper flowers, felt flowers, and buttons from the great escape collection.
i then sliced a fun sun shape from yellow cardstock, using the "normal" setting. i heat embossed it with yellow embossing powder for a shiny look. i then used the embossing tips in the slice, to emboss the same sun shape onto orange pattern paper. i sanded down the raised areas from the embossing, and cut out the shape by hand. then i added the yellow embossed sun on top using mini pop dots. i sliced the word "fun" from brown cardstock, and pop dotted that to the middle of the sun.
i love the ice cream shapes on the summer design card, which is what i used for this card. i sliced the cone from brown pattern paper, and then sliced a bunch of scoops of ice cream from different pattern papers. all papers from the just chillin collection.
i layered the scoops together, using some pop dots on some of the scoops. i started off using pop dots on all the scoops, but realized that it was getting way too bulky of an ice cream cone. lol! so i only used the pop dots on a few layers. under that pink scoop on the top, i had to use 3 pop dots layered together to meet up with the paper. then i just added little dots of glitter stickles to the scoops.
