Shape Up!

Do you ever get tired of just making the normal rectangle or square cards? Need a little something different to jazz up your day? Well, then head on over to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge for peek at all the different shapes of cards the design team made. Then join us and make your own card of any shape OTHER THAN a square or rectangle. Link it up to the Stamptacular Sunday blog by midnight next Saturday and you could win a prize.

I have to admit that I really like this card. It is just so FUN! It was very time consuming though. Let me tell you a little about it. I got the idea HERE. There is a link to a tutorial if you would like to learn how to make this SIDE STEP CARD. I also used a template for my clouds HERE. I know that seems silly, but that way I could figure out how long or short I needed them to be. I did end up altering them a bit. I traced the template using a copic marker and then cut them out. That gave a bit of shadowing. I then put stickles around the edges too. My sun was created using a Daisy 2 sizzlet for the "rays" and the largest SU circle punch for the "sun." More stickles:) That cute image was a digital stamp from All That Scraps called Swiss Pixies Gretel. I colored her with Copics and stickled her as well. I made that rainbow using a circle punch and.....you guessed it....STICKLES!

Here are a few close ups...


Now don't forget to get those creative juices flowing. I'm on vacation, but hope to peek in to see what you have made. Make sure you visit the design team. We also have another special challenge today. Super fun!

Have a great Sunday
