May GSS Entries

Here are the cards & projects that entered in the May Guest Star Stamper Contest.

"Dreams Take Flight"
Pond Life Stamp Set
Edited to add: This card received an Honorable Mention on Nichole's Blog. Thanks Nichole, I consider it an honour to make great creations with all your great creations. *big smiles*

This card I loved the fact that it is super easy to mix and match the colors. I inked up the dragonfly with lemon tart and then I rock and rolled it and inked the body in burnt umber and then I stamped it. I thought it worked out pretty well.

To make the rock I used the shell of the turtle image stamped in grey and then I misted the stamp with water and then stamped to create a "washed over rock" type image.

The inside dragonfly was even easier as that image is 2 pieces so that you can stamp the body in a seperate color.

Lastly, I roughed up the edges of my cardstock and then I roughed up the ribbon ends to match.

This project was inspired by Nichole's Wallet for Dad. I thought...well Dad needs a briefcase as well.

This is the front view of the briefcase all folded up with a simple tag that says For You.

I dont have the exact sizes of everything but if you want to know just keave me a comment. :)

Here is the inside. It has pockets on the top lined with the great paper from the Father Knows Best series. I stamped and matted little quotes to tuck into the pockets. See the picture below for more detail.

The Happy Father's Day sentiment is done in the same pop up detail as seen in my last post.

Then pictures of my little cuties laying in the bottom of the breifcase. I add 2 copper brads to the top flap to act as the fasteners. Also I put 2 little strips of velcro on each end for the closure.

And here are the little quoates also matted on the FKB paper. I added the two twill colors from last months release as the pull tabs. Have I mentioned yet how much I love the thin PTI twill? No? Well i do...a LOT!

"The Leaf Card"
I have been doing more pocket cards lately, they are fun. Thi one I used lemon tart and stamped always artichoke leaves on it. Then I lined it with double stitch & twill ribbon. The teill fits perfectly between the stitches.
After that I rip the edge of the lemon and added some artichoke ripped also. Then I glued it down and added the brads.

The inside panel is cut into the shape of a leaf which I did free hand. I then embossed the veins of the leaf with an embossing stylus freehand.
I stamped my tree slightly off the paper and added the sentiments. I ove this one and it is totally true. If my Dad were still he I am sure he would agree...LOL
I did have a few others but I didnt like them as much so I am going to end it here and go make supper.
Have a good day people! Jewels
