So Shelli Happy Birthday Creative Challenge

Posted by Captain Crafter on 7:25 PM
I know it's not hard to figure where I got the inspiration for this card (cover of the 2009-2010 SU catalogue). I haven't purchased anything from the new catalogue yet, so I used what I had to develop my card. The only things that are non SU: Adirondack Acrylic Paint and one little flower that's in-between the two felt flowers.

Also, I used my specially designed blow pen to make the splatter, and I must say it's works much better than the spritzer tool. I have tried the spritzer, but I had difficulty controlling the amount of ink so that's why I developed my own tool to create the splatter.

Happy Birthday Creative Challenge

Posted by Captain Crafter on 3:19 PM
I started to make this card just the other day. I had no idea what theme I was going to use until I was on Shelli Gardner's site, So Shelli, and saw that her latest challenge was calling for a Happy Birthday theme.

I haven't made a card that pops up, slides, spins in some time so before I started I decided to do a view master type card with a bit of a twist. The twist being when you hold a piece of red cello over the red stamped image it reveals the hidden blue image beneath. I'm not sure what to call it but the idea came from an old game I had when I was a kid and it had this method of revealing the answers to the questions in the game card.

I hope you all enjoy!
