TLC440 challenge over on SCS! We were reminded by Judy that while all the new stuff being released at CHA is always enticing... the old is also good... and we were to go back through the first 50 TLC challenges and pick one for our card today. I picked TLC28, which was the Masking Technique. Masking is when you stamp an image on either sticky paper or post it notes, cut it out and then use it as a mask to stamp multiple images and give them dimension when in a group. So for my masking technique, I stamped my small pickle once on card stock, placed the mask over it and stamped again... repeating this until my jar looked full of pickles. When you do this... there will be one image that stands out as being in the front, and all the others will look like they are behind that one. It's a GREAT technique to know... and while it's been around a long time... if you have not tried it I urge you to give it a try! You can find a great tutorial for it HERE.
My card today is giving a SNEAK PEEK at several new products being released by Our Daily Bread designs AUG. 1! This is a fun release... with a neat blend of faith and fun products! For this card, I used Blue Ribbon Winner, Garden Mini, Pickles and Strawberries for my stamps, and the ODBD Custom Jar Die, as well as an AWESOME new die set called Fancy Foliage... custom made for ODBD by Spellbinders. I also used the tag die from a previous release, ODBD Recipe and Tags Die.
I stamped the jar from Blue Ribbon Winner. Then I stamped the small cucumber image from the Garden Mini set once in the jar, stamped it on sticky paper, cut that out and laid it on top of my first image. I repeated that several times until I had filled my jar with pickles. I then colored them with Copics. I also cut 2 larger cuke images from the Strawberries and Pickles set and cut them out. To layer up my card I started with a base of craft, then ran a vanilla layer through a Sizzix leaf folder which I had inked with Distress Ink direct pad to flat side of folder. The horizontal layer is a basket weave folder done the same way. I mounted my pickle jar, which I cut with the new Jar Die set to be released Aug 1 as well. The foliage is from the now Fancy Foliage die set, which I just LOVE... and the tag is from the Recipe and Tags die set.
Now don't go thinking this coming release is all about pickles.... because there's much more!!! Don't miss the release Aug 1! See you then!
