My July swaps

Its August and I haven't posted for a few weeks. I don't have the scrapbook page I want to post completed, so I'm going back to July and post the swaps I did.

 The card above is the Build A Sketch. We had five pieces to play with. 4.25 x 5.5, 5.25 x 4, 3.75 x 2.5, 2.25 x 7/8, 4 x .75 and 2.5 x 4.5 with a < cut in it. Colors I used are Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard. The large cupcake is SU Build a cupcake punch and the little cupcakes I found online.

 The card below is the Recipe Card, recipe being: No rectangles at all, one ribbon, two punches and three buttons. I used SU Build an Owl punch, the card was made using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Four, I used the largest of the five. The buttons, well they have been hanging around my craftroom for years.

No, I'm not making Christmas cards yet. This is the Technique card. It was lots of fun and I think I'm hooked on the technique. Items that needed to be used were outline sticker, ultra fine glitter and markers. I used Copics for the coloring, and not sure what brand the glitter is, it also has been hanging around for ages. I'm going to be using more of it in the future. The whole card base is bathed in glitter after applying the gold outline sticker. and then the colors were applied to the glitterd areas.

The Mystery card. I had an item sent to me that I was to use on a card. July's item was a fancy wood toothpick. Can you find it? The layout is Delightful Inspiration Sketch #26.

Now I must go work on a scrapbook page that's all about me and one of my favorite things. Its a challenge in an SCS forum group.More about the challenge in a future post.

Thanks for stopping by. Take Care

Great projects. I attended a demo for those stickers & I never got the hang of them. You did great. I love the use of the toothpick as the scroll for the bottom card. And I love the cupcakes & owl cards.
