Shopping our Stash #238 - Bent out of Shape!

This week at Shopping our Stash we'd like to see (gasp!) shaped cards. These are definitely not my forte, so I invented some curse words along the way - but I do love how it turned out!




Supplies: Oh the stash! Sentiment & sun from Green Grass Stamps, never inked before. Cloud, heart, & rainbow dies unknown; Sunshine WOW EP; Versamark; Diamond stickles; Tumbled Glass distress ink; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; googly eyes; lots of scraps of card stock




I cut the cloud cardbase allowing for a fold - and then an extra cloud to serve as the card front. The rainbow was die-cut 7 times to get all the colours, and then reassembled onto another piece of cardstock for stability. I left little 'tabs' on it so I could attach it to the card base and layer the card front on top. It was difficult to get a photo of the yellow embossing because of the light at my desk, but I really am pleased with how this worked, especially given my lack of paper engineering skills lol.

The team really knocked this challenge out of the park - everybody's creations are so wonderfully different! Go check them out: 




xoxo,
Jessi
