I HAVE TWO PROJECTS FOR TODAY!!! PLEASE SCROLL DOWN WHEN YOU ARE DONE LOOKING HERE. :)
Hello Everyone!!! Welcome to the September Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies but Goodies Blog Hop! Our challenge for this hop is to use items in our project that are at least six months old. I know we all have some of those in our crafting supplies!! If you have arrived here from Deb's Blog, you are in the right spot. To start at the beginning of the hop, be sure to go to Carol's blog.
Do you have ever have cards you think you had a touch of Creative genius for and can't wait to create it? Well, this was one of those cards for me... I have had this idea in my head for THREE weeks ever since I saw the Sneak Peek to these fabulous fall images! Unfortunately, I have been laid up with my surgery and the only stamping I have done was my HAVE TO's. Although... I didn't REALLY HAVE TO - but more of I wanted to keep up with my Design Team duties. On this project, I had a different ribbon in my head. I think I used is on something else, so settled for simple white grosgrain.
Here are some details to my card... I started out by stamping Frisky Florence on white storm card stock and colored her in very quickly and simply. I did not focus on the detail of coloring her because I figured she would be covered up! I then carefully cut around her and cut the hat completely off. I even trimmed the sides of her skirt down because it stuck out too far for the mummy look right. I used a Craft Knife to cut in between her body where her arm bends on both sides, so I could weave the ribbon through it.
Once Frisky Florence was cut out, I put adhesive on the front of her legs and behind them and started to "mummify" her. :) I worked up each leg and then her body. Some of the ribbon I cut and glued to the back to get her to look well wrapped!
I used the Marbled Smooch technique on the COOL CARIBBEAN cardstock (my oldie but goodie!) panel and layered the card with Black and White cardstock. I embossed the blue panel with the Sizzix Flowers and Flourish set. I used the Spellbinders dies called Ovals and the Elegant Ovals along with my Grand Calibur!
Additional tools were a Martha Stewart punch, gems, mini glue dots, Paper Snips, Copic markers, white gel pen and a Black marker too! I added the Who's Your Mummy image to finish off my card...
So what do you think?
