CTV DT Ch# 27 "Mix It Up!"

Hello! A friend of mine mailed me a couple of the lamb cuts and grass cuts from a cartridge she has that I don't have. Wasn't that sweet? So I used them for today's Cardz TV Stamps challenge.

Cardz TV Ch# 27 "Mix It Up!"
Make a card, layout or craft project mixing 3 patterned papers
Starts: Fri, April 5
Ends: Thurs, Apr 18 @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:

  • A2 size POSTCARD 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Cloud paper cut @ 4" x 5 1/4" (Echo Park) - PATTERN PAPER 1
  • Lamb and Grass cuts from the Cricut Cartridge "Easter 2010"
  • Grass cut is layered with foam tape on top of other grass - PATTERN PAPER 2
  • Lamb is adhered with 2 thicknesses of foam tape; embossed with D'vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder; and inked with Colorbox "Sky Blue"
  • Sign is hand cut. It's hard to tell from this photo, but the sign post is PATTERN PAPER 3 and inked around the edges with Stampin' Up "Soft Suede."
  • Buttons and American Crafts ribbon added for fun
  • Rhinestones from Studio G added to grass for fun
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Critter Captions" for the "Wild and Wooly" and "Farmyard Funnies" for the "Thank Ewe" both stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis
