What was I inspired by? I was inspired by this little beauty! Okay so I know my card doesn't look anything like the one you see in the link above, but I really really wanted to make an explosion card! So I used the same colors and dots and I even used some glitter...aren't you proud of me?
Here is a side view of the card...on the right hand flap I stamped Happy Belated Birthday. The pink paper was stamped with the Wanted stamp set in close to cocoa classic ink.
And this is a top view...isn't this card impressive? I know I would love to get a card like this for my birthday...even if it was late!
Like I said, I have been wanting to make an explosion card for a while and couldn't open Dawn's AWESOME video tutorial found here So I took the measurements that she had given at the top and fiddled with it for a while until I figured it out...trust me you wanna see her tutorial...I hear it's super easy to follow!
What do you need?
Stamps: Wanted, Older and wiser
Paper: close to cocoa card stock, Berry Bliss designer paper
Ink: Close to cocoa, stazon Timer brown
Accessories: scor-pal, glitter
Let me know if you need any help, I can always make a photo tutorial if you would like also!
NSR-Everyday Chit Chat
We had ourselves a good ol' family reunion today...my mother-in-laws side of the family and it was sooo nice to get together with everyone! We hadn't seen most of them in a couple of years (which is ridiculous cuz we don't live that far apart) So we all decided that we need to get together more often!
Here is a picture of Me-Maw (center) and Charlie and Aunt Pat. We just love these people and are so glad they are in our lives...Me-Maw is such an inspiration and such a wonderful woman of God! I pray that I will one day be as strong in my walk with Christ as she is! And this is a picture of all the kids there...we were missing about 5 kids on top of all the ones that were there...we are a bunch pf procreating fools! LOL
Thanks for stopin' by
