Hello crafty friends and Happy New Year to you all!
It's time for the first challenge of 2017 at SHOPPING OUR STASH! For this week's prompt,
Shape Up, we challenge you to make a card or project using a shape other than a rectangle, circle, or square. It seems that since the holidays have passed, everyone is in Valentine mode....But not me. Here is what I came up with:
Here is the inside:
I started by making three nesting templates of a coffin. I traced around a folded piece of black cardstock using the largest template, making sure the left side lined up along the fold, and fussy cut. I repeated the tracing and cutting for the smaller panels. On the orange front panel, I randomly stamped a couple stamps, inked and distressed the edges. The other three panels were inked and distressed too. I colored the creepy cool cat and fussy cut it as well. I then created a collage using stickers, ephemera, and sequins. A couple more stamps finish the inside.
(Love this creepy cat!)
I hope you find some time this week to play along with our Shape Up challenge at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see how you interpret this challenge! For even more inspiration, do yourself a favor and visit the blogs of my teammates, and leave them some bloggy lovin!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
