This is my week to be a guest designer for the CAS57 challenge. This week, our challenge is to layer 2 different shapes while keeping it clean and simple. I struggled with many different ideas, and in the end, they all came together for me.
Here is the card I submitted as a designer.
This was the first idea I came up with - an oval on a circle. When I first put the shapes together it looked like an eyeball, or the CBS logo, and that weirded me out. Then I saw a beach ball and knew that is what I could make. Then I had to figure out how to get it into a card design. A day or two later, this is how it came together.
Stamps - none
Paper - SU whisper white, real red, yoyo yellow, brilliant blue
Ink - yoyo yellow and brilliant blue for sponging
Accessories - Nestabilities oval and circle dies, circle punch, black marker, daubers, pop dots, computer generated sentiment using Write me a memory journaling font volume I.
Here are the other cards I made for this challenge.
I love this cute little image from A Muse, and decided to use stars in my design. I didn't have a star big enough to go around the circle, so I enlarged one of the punched out stars by hand and cut it out.
Stamps - Rock star by A Muse
Paper - GKD white, brilliant blue, tempting turquoise
Ink - Memento black, brilliant blue for sponging
Accessories - Copics, circle and star punches, dauber, Zig writer
This one is very simple - a square on a rectangle. I just learned how to make this kind of bow from ApricotRose on SCS. I had tried many times before, but just hadn't fiddled with it enough.
Stamps - baby firsts, warm words
Paper - GKD white, barely banana, bashful blue, prints pack
Ink - Memento black
Accessories - Copics, square Nestabilities, ribbon, pop dots
And another one...
This cute image is by Stamping Bella, and I came up with the color combo from the Bali Breeze DSP pack. I colored the button to match with a Copic marker.
Stamps - pots o' stuff and sentiment by Stamping Bella
Paper - GKD white, taken with teal, Bali Breeze DSP
Ink - Memento black, pumpkin pie for sponging
Accessories - Copics, Nestabilities label die, ribbon, button, embroidery floss, glue dot
I had a great time as a guest designer this week. I hope you enjoy all my creations!
