essentials by ellen july mix it up challenge: paper smooches

I had a lot of fun with this card, which I made for the Essentials by Ellen July Mix it Up Challenge with Paper Smooches.  This card is so me...It's so old school:)

For some inspiration, I was actually listening to 80s music while painting these cassette tapes.  Here are some other layouts I tried out.

Thanks for stopping by!

casology: repeat

It's been a while since I've played along with the CASology challenge, but I'm pushing myself to get back into crafting and cardmaking swing of things.  Here's a clean and simple card I made using the cue word repeat.

I stamped and masked the cassette tape several times to create a repeated image.  Then, I made the ombre effect using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  There were some cassette tapes with ombre labels back in the day, right?

Thank you for stopping by.

mama elephant july challenge: rainbow

I'm back from a quick trip to California, where I got to spend a lot of quality time with my family and as a bonus, play with some of my sister's craft supplies.  Here's one of the cards I made:

I'm entering this card into Mama Elephant's July Challenge, where we're asked to create a colorful rainbow in our projects.  I hope you like it and I hope you're enjoying your summer.
