Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to be your host this week, thanks Lori :)

P.S. this is also my first time hosting too!!

 

I am a Aussie GKD fan / StampTV member, at the moment it is spring here on the other side of the world, we dont celebrate halloween or Thanksgiving (much to my disappointment growing up). And our Christmas is in Summer and usually spent swimming in the pool after opening presents.

This week I have been thinking of what kind of challenge to do that can represent: opposite or reverse or backwards, in keeping with this opposite, other side of the world, different theme. And I think I have found it or close to it anyway.

 

This weeks challenge is to create a backward layer card........what I mean is create a recessed image card or recessed window card or even use the negative area from a die cut, to create that tunnel feel rather than a telescope appearance. It can be a card of any theme, any colour, any embellishments etc as long as there is more than one layer.

Gina has a video on a recessed image card here

And here are my examples.....

My first card:

Card base: white 120lb GKD cardstock

Layers: GKD Black Onyx carstock and Turquoise Sea cardstock.

Image: Butterflies from GKD "A year of borders" stamp set, inked with memento tuxedo black ink onto the white card base and coloured with copic markers BG45, BG49, and highlight with Sakura clear star gellyroll pen.

Sentiment: from GKD Birthday greetings stamp set, inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto turquoise sea cardstock - that was embossed with Swiss dots cuttlebug folder.

"windows" were cut from small square spellbinders nestabilities (larger one for the blue cardstock than the black).

Embellishments: light blue grosgrain ribbon.

 

Second card:

Card base: black onyx GKD cardstock

Layers: GKD Black Onyx carstock and Red Hot cardstock, white cardstock

Images: Background sponged with memento green inks - pear tart, bamboo leaves & new sprout, image is from GKD "Joyful Holiday" stamp set, inked with memento bamboo leaves ink onto the white card base.
Trees - stamped on white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink from stamp set GKD "The magic of Christmas" coloured with copic markers and fussy cut out.
Baubles - stamped on white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink from stamp set GKD "The magic of Christmas" coloured with copic markers and fussy cut out.

Sentiment: from GKD "The Magic of Christmas" stamp set, inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white vellum.

"window" was cut from Spellbinder A2 matting basic dies

 

Last card:

Card base: white GKD cardstock  

Layers: GKD Red Hot cardstock and GKD designer paper from the new "Blizzard" paper pack

Images: from GKD "Holiday Cheer" stamp set, inked with versamark ink & embossed with ranger holographic embossing power onto the inside of the white card base. The background sponged with Angel pink and Lady bug memento inks using the negative of the spellbinder 2012 Heirloom ornament die. Snowflakes stamped with london fog memento ink.  

"window" was cut using the negative of the spellbinder 2012 Heirloom ornament die. And clear acetate with placed over the window.

Embellishments: doodlebug christmas twine. Corners rounded with corner chopper

Congratulations and thanks for hosting, Sally.  I'm really hoping to play along. I'm still under the affects of Hurricane Sandy and this is now the 5th day without power.  So I'm actually anxious to come to work so I have lights, heat and can take peeks at StampTV.  Your card samples are gorgeous.

Oh No!  HOpe you get your power back on soon Gayle!!

Thinking about you Gayle and all others affected by this storm.......hope power is restored soon, especially how it fall heading into winter there. All the best. Fingers crossed the power is on before Thursday :)

Congratulations on hosting!  Your cards are all so gorgeous. 

I LOVE your idea of doing a 'backward' card for our Aussie friend!  And your cards are beautiful - great examples!  THANKS.

Great challenge and beautiful cards.  Love the depth and dimension.

I really love your first card!

This is a great challenge!  I love your examples, too.

Great examples Sally and congratulations on hosting - wonderful job!!!

Gayle and anyone else affected by the storm -- hoping for fast recovery for power, housing, and fuel!

Congrats on hosting Sally!!! Your cards are so lovely!! I will give it a go..the ideas are flowing..!!!!!!!!!!!

I love your samples and I applaud you for so many that you did with this method. I know it is a fairly easy thing to do, but for some reason I had to really work at making just one card for this challenge and I don't think it will be a type of card I will do very often. That is too time consuming for me. But I hope you like the effort I did. Here is mine.

Wow, wow! First, Sally, congrats on hosting this challenge (BTW it's a great one). Second, your samples are all beautifully well done.  I haven't tried this technique yet, so I'm hoping to play along. 

To all those affected by the storm, we're praying for you. Gayle, hope you get your power back very soon. My brother lives in NJ and he too is without power, had to resort to a small generator. Problem, getting gas is no easy task. Stay strong everyone, this too shall pass.
