Today is Monday, which means yesterday was Sunday, which means The Paper Players have issued a new challenge for the week, which means I tackled the challenge yesterday, which means I am sharing my project today. Anne Marie Hile is hosting a Clean and Simple Challenge with a “For the Kids” theme. Clean and Simple – right up my alley. For the Kids – herein lies my challenge. I started to make this card a couple of months, but I stopped part way through and never picked it back up. Until now. Anne Marie’s challenge has brought it to the light of day. Here’s my card:
- Making my Own Designer Series Paper. As I told you back in July, You’re My Hero is one of my favorites from the Annual Catalog. All of the sketched emergency vehicles and sentiments are TOO ADORABLE for words. An entire page of stamped police cars looks like a young boy’s pajamas, don’t you think? I stamped all the images in Jet Black StazOn and alternated between Real Red and Pool Party to color in my cars. In case you missed it, I added Real Red to the star on the Pool Party cars and Pool Party to the star on the Real Red cards.
- Lining them up. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the police cars on my background piece. I created a line of cards and then staggered the next line, fitting the wheels right between the lights on the tops of the cards. Keeping this perspective as I stamped them really helped me to keep them right where they needed to be.
- Clean and Simple. Since this “for the kids” challenge is also a Clean and Simple challenge, I created an extra-large panel for the center panel and stamped “happy day” directly in the middle. I really like the look of this. I used the Real Red envelope liner from the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit – an easy addition.
