This week the design team and guest designers for La-La are making “shape” cards…anything other than a rectangle or square….so take off creative people and let’s see what you can come up with! I decided to color up Happy Maya with my copic sketch markers, cut her out and let her out of the barn! Moooo-oooh lala! I wanted the rooster to be crowing that but the banner just didn’t fit over there and it was too late to turn the rooster around! lol The rooster is a Tonic punch and I hand cut the hay. Bringing up Tonic makes me want to mention the paper cutters I use. “Commercial”………..I LOVE the Tonic Guillotine cutters! The only ones for me and I have them all! Just in case you’re lookin’ for the best cutter out there! The barn is cut three times on the Cricut, 2 red and 1 brown from the newer Everyday Paper Doll cartridge at 5.5 inches. I used a Karen Foster ribbon brad at the end of the banner.
Here’s my card for this challenge…
The hearts on the inside are from a Stampin Up punch…very fun! I wish I’d thought to use some nestabilities on the inside…*sigh*….always forgetting stuff! lol
Sorry about all the pictures… I decided to take a picture of the stamps to show you how I did the words. I used my stampamajig! oh my, “Commercial” I LOVE my stampamajig!!! do you all use one? I could do a tutorial, if it’s something you might like….just pictures, I don’t have a video camera. whew! lol
I used three stamps from Printworks. All stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink…love this ink for just traditional stamping…a very sharp crisp image.
