365 Cards - Day 49 - Accordian Card

Today at 365 Cards we were to make an accordian card.

It doesn't look nearly as good in the picture as is does in person. I haven't added the sentiment because I don't know if it is going to be a Mother's Day card or a B-day card for my Mom.

She loves bling, so this was made with her in mind.

Thanks for looking.

P.s. I didn't use any scraps on this card. I cut four perfectly large 12x12 inch pieces of paper. Good news is that now I have scraps for future cards. :-)

365 Cards - Day 48 - Score Lines

This week has really made me work outside my comfort zone. Who knew that a little score line would make me so jittery. I have pondered these little lines today and have come up with a greater appreciation for the Designers at 365 Cards. I am happy that I have been pushed to try things that I didn't think I would like.

Today we were to create a design using score lines. Being the chicken that I am, I decided to take an existing design and ruin that instead of coming up with my own catastrophe.

I wasn't too successful with the score lines, but I think I covered it up enough to distract you from being too critical. Thanks for looking. (Kind of like a train wreck isn't it?)

365 Cards - Day 47 - Pop-Up Card

Today's 365 Card Challenge was to make a pop-up card. I really thought I would put this off until tomorrow. I have been busy making 8x8 Disney layouts for Make A Wish and just didn't want to switch gears. So, I turned the light off and walked away.

Well, it happened again. I was walking by to shut the house down for the night (you know turn off all the lights, tuck the girls in, peek out the front window) when I thought about making a little table top decoration in the form of a pop-up card. Just a little inspiration to make us smile.

Here is my little inspiration. Very basic. Very simple. Very cheering.

Pardon the mess around the mouse. I won't clean up until I am done making pages. Or until the family gets hungry. Geesh. I have to feed them EVERY DAY. My scrap table is full of the normal mess and DH was out of town so I took over the kitchen table. And let the kids eat in the family room. Cuz I'm cool like that.

Thanks for looking.

365 Cards - Day 46 - Matchbook Card

Today's 365 Card Challenge is to make a Matchbook Card. I haven't been drawn to the Matchbook Scrapbooks, so I wasn't thrilled to see this one today. But, I made one because I am trying to stick with this challenge. I need cards. I like the variety on 365 Cards. I LOVE the cards that are entered. One of the things that I admire about this group is that they leave the "ingredients" wide open. You don't have to use a specific product. Which means that we, the viewers, get to see a WIDE variety of styles. And being exposed to a variety of anything makes one think that one could do those other things. Anyway, I am blabbering.
But, what I am trying to say is that I really like 365 Cards.
Thank you ladies.
And today's challenge is one of those times that pushed me to make something I didn't think I would like. But I did end up liking this and I think I will make more of them.

So on to the eye candy. Here is my entry:

And here is the inside. Nothing fancy. But I like the colors.

I put this together in about 30 minutes. I love it.
Thanks for looking.

365 Cards - Day 45 - Tri-Fold Card AND Scrappy Frog's Challenge

Inspiration for the colors came from the Slice. Scrappy Frog's Challenge blog is challenging us to use the Slice as inspiration. I immediately saw the green buttons. Loved the light blue and of course couldn't leave out the black power cord.
The 365 Cards challenge today is to create a tri-fold card. I really had fun with this one.
It's a pretty basic design, but I got to play with buttons, brads and bling.
Oh yeah, and a little bit of lace. Green lace. I love green.

And here is the inside.

Paper is October Afternoon, image is clipart (Windows), Bazzill cardstock, font is Another Typewriter, various buttons, brads and gems, unknown lace

Thanks for looking.

Today's 365 Card challenge is to create a money holder card.

I used the highest denomination bill in my wallet.
Can't compete with all you rich folks out there. LOL.

365 Cards - Day 43 - Gift Card Holder - Scor-it Week Kick-Off

Todays card is a gift holder. AND 365 Cards is kicking off Scor-it week.

"Each day one of the DT members will present her take on the daily challenge, along with a tutorial on her blog. Scor-it Week runs from today, until Saturday, April 18th at 11:59 PM EST. You have until then to link up your cards from any of the challenges for the week. Each challenge you complete earns you one entry in the random drawing for a Scor-it Mini!" - quote from 365 Cards.

Here's my gift card holder. I used this stamp recently and she was still out, so here she is again. This time I put Diamond Glaze on her for an epoxy look. A bit of extra sparkle for her.

And here is the inside. I simply cut a 12x12 inch piece of kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 x 10 1/2. Folded the card at the 4 1/4 mark and the 8 1/2 mark. Used a circle punch for the slot and put adhesive down the very side edges of the two inch area.

Thanks for looking. I am really enjoying this challenge. I am getting a bunch of cards made. Something I have wanted to do for a while, but always got stumped for different ideas. Thank you 365 Design Team.
