It is time for another MyGrafico Challenge!
This week the team worked with these 2 stamps...
I just loved both of these sets .. I was super excited to get my hands on them and start creating..
Umm but I did leave it this week till the last minute! Yikes..
I have been so super busy the past few weeks,
I am hosting a kids craft day every other week on Fridays,
So I have been busy cleaning my messy house for that...LOL
I also have been trying to work on getting the yard ready for fall... =P
Next week is My local MOMs group Garage sale..
it's going to be huge. I have almost half a garage full of stuff to sell! Oh what fun I have been having with trying to get it all marked! Blah...
Then of course the normal stuff Griffin therapy and he now has Preschool in the afternoons
as well as mornings so I am shuttling him back and forth.
I am trying to keep Rory busy with Mom's group meet ups.
Which is so cute he loves to play with other kids.
So I am Bizzy, Bizzy, Bizzy..
Anyway back to the Challenge...=D
I made this Card on Saturday at a crop and just was so happy with how it turned out!
Love Love Love it...
I wanted to have alot of texture and layers since the challenge this week is Paper Piecing.
I used the orange ( made more orange to match the owl better) and the blue papers from the Dotted Daisy Dotted papers set.
The Owl was cut out and layered over the branch which has several of the leaves popped up.
I added some cute wiggly eyes to the owl that fit the eyes perfectly! yay! LOL..
I added extra texture with the candy cane embossing folder & added some ink to make it stand out.
I also crimped the orange Dotted daisy paper to give more texture like a ruffled ribbon. then hand cut out the green circle popped my handmade birthday cake ( made with the EK success birthday punch and Lots of Stickles!) I added a few scraps of ribbon and a scrap glitter paper strip behind it.
Inside I used some previously printed and cut bunting flags then popped up every other one
to give them a bit of dimension. From Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's On The Line Stamps. I used the Martha Stewart 3 dot scallop & the maple leaf corner punch to add even more interest. I added the happy Birthday ticket I had from the Tickets Galore stamp set By Sanqunetti ( I just added the happy Birthday inside the blank ticket)
I had a multi pack of the googly eyes and thought they worked perfect on this little guy!
Ok so that is all for me today if you want to join in our Challenge just visit the MyGrafico Challenge blog and add your paper pieced entry before next Wednesday!
