Celebrate Card for TTCRD Challenge

It’s Tuesday and time for another Through the Craft Room Door challenge. As always the theme is my favorite, Anything Goes! There is a new challenge every Tuesday at TTCRD. I am on Team A and this week is our turn to post our cards. The sponsor this week is That Craft Place. Check out the TTCRD blog for all the details and great cards by the rest of the dt.

For this challenge, I created a card featuring “Catwalk Calli”, a digital stamp from That Craft Place. I stamped her on cream cardstock, did a little coloring and cut her out. I stamped her dress on purple velvet paper, cut it out and embossed it with an embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts.

I made a card at my local stamp shop with this ombre look die cut background and decided to recreate it on this card. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and applied temporary tape on both sides. I sponged very light purple (Shaded Lilac Distress Ink) on the bottom and sponged darker towards the top (Dusty Concord Distress Ink.) Then I removed the temporary tape masks and cut two pieces off the top with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders wavy die. I attached all the pieces to the cream cardbase with mounting tape to raise them. I attached Calli and a “Celebrate” sentiment cut out with a Cherry Lynn Die. I didn’t have any purple sequins, so I colored some clear sequins with my purple Copic and attached.

Karen, I love the way you've colored and paper pieced her. She looks amazing and would surely grace any catwalk. Thanks for joining us at 613 Avenue Create this week and I hope you'll join us again soon.

Beautiful card Karen - love the background with the ombre effect and die cuts - and Callie herself is a stunner.
