Thank you to all who voted. I made it to the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Top 10!!! Now onto a new challenge. The challenge for Round 4:
"The theme comes from our special issue, Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters; the theme is household items! That means we’d like you to make cards with things found around the house—rubber bands, bread tabs, cupcake liners, paper towel tubes, and repositionable notes are a few that are found in Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters! So find a household item and use it on your card!"
I have been traveling since this theme was announced on Friday as I was heading to Washington DC to spend Father's Day weekend with my dad and the rest of my family, and I am still in town for work. I brought the essentials (adhesive, scissors, cardstock, black ink, a few favorite Hero Arts clear sets and a trimmer). I took a ride to Target this afternoon after my family left for some inspiration and looked in the office supply aisle (but I did not see anything really new), and the household aisle and looked for some objects that I really do have in my house. Then I saw these:
These are something I do buy and I thought maybe I could make them into fun flowers with a little creative cutting. Once I got to playing around and looking at the limited stamp sets I had, I decided to turn them into an "ocean" by mixing the bags which are green and blue. Not sure if it is the most originial card in this round, but I bet it is one of the best smelling!
The bags were cut in strips then wrapped around a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 panel. I like that they make folds to stick the cut out shapes it. This card is really fun in real life. If you have read this far, I hope I will get your vote in the next round. You can go here to vote! Now to clean up my hotel room a bit, it definitely got messy!
Thank you again for your vote and to all of you that told a friend! I really do appreciate you all taking the time to help me on this Gallery Idol journey. Here is the link to vote for me!
