Today I would like to share with you my Design Team card for The Sweet Pea stampers challenge blog
This week we are very excited to announce that we are now sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps. One lucky person will be picked at random each week as the winner of a Sweet Pea image from Sweet Pea stamps . one:
Each month we will also have a "Card of the Month" and this person will win three Sweet Pea Stamp images.
This week the challenge is to include Acetate on your project. It may be an embellishment, an acetate card, an acetate box, an acetate frame, an acetate window or an acetate wrap. These are just a few suggestions we would love to see what you come up with.
I made this easel card for my sisters birthday card which happens to be ,April the 20th, see details below of the blog hop happening at Sweet Pea stamps blog.
I used MME papers and I used a box card template from My Craft Studio Proffessional countryside gardens CD rom. I used the flowers which are supposed to sit inside the box as my embellishments. After putting the box together I used foam pads to adhere my cut out image to the frame. I used a clarity stamps stamp to stamp onto the acetate before fixing it to the inside of the box on top of the image.
I used distress inks and acrylic paints to create an aged look to the frame and the card and I added some embellishments and ribbon to the card from my stash.
This is taken from the Sweet Pea Stamps blog : "During our one year celebration, I would like to have a customer blog hop. This hop will take place on April 20th. You must make a birthday or anniversary card using one of Sweet Pea Stamp images as your main focus point. You may use other companies sentiments or print up a sentiment using your computer. You will be able to post a link to Mister Linky on the 20th linking it to your blog. I will pick three random winners to receive a free 4" x 5" inch quarter sheet of an image of ching-chou kuik with a couple of birthday/ anniversary sentiments that will be released in the next couple weeks. So spread the word, let's make this hop a big celebration!"
