It's such fun CASEing cards from Paper Crafts magazine with Donelda! We're still working our way through the March/April 2012 issue, and we're starting off this week with Donelda's pick first. She chose this card from Go-To Gal Teri Anderson:
I have to admit, this is the first card Donelda has picked that didn't immediately "speak" to me. I like it, I just didn't immediately have fifteen ideas in my head to choose from. And -- there's no stamping on it! I thought about why she might have chosen it... and if I know Donelda, one of the things that would have attracted her was the opportunity to use some scraps! So that's where I put my focus. Here's the final product:
I felt the need to ground the pennants, so I attached them to some hemp cord, which may or may not indicate that my initial plan was to use a kraft card base. We also don't need to discuss the sheet of kraft cardstock that may have given its life in vain. It's possible there were going to be white clouds stamped on the kraft card base. So when I switched to the white base and added the sentiment, I realized there wasn't a lot to tie the sentiment to the pennants. That's where the little heart, glitzed up with some Glossy Accents, came in. It also provides a little echo of the brad that Teri used.
After that sad little story, it's time to go see what Donelda did with this inspiration!
P.S. Since those pennants are all from my patterned paper scrap basket, I'm linking this up to the Moxie Fab World paper scraps challenge! And since my favourite stamping tool is my heat tool (no surprise there), it's going in this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge!
