3D Somethings

Morning and happy Friday!

I'm so happy that this week is coming to an end. I've been very busy finishing up 150 save the dates, which I will be DONE with today. Then, it's the weekend! Hope you all have something fun planned.

We have a new challenge over on STAMP SOMETHING today, which is being hosted by our DT member Alex. She challenged us to make a 3D Something! This was a tough one for me. I'm a card makers and altered items and bags and boxes aren't my thing. I very rarely delve into that type of designing. Plus, I just made a couple 3D things last week and I really wanted to try something new. So, I got the idea to create a 3 dimensional aspect on my card from our newest DT member Marcea! Thanks hun, loved your card, it was the inspiration for mine!

I started by creating the card with Bashful Blue cardstock and added on some new DSP from the SU! Sale-a-Bration pack. I added some new yellow grosgrain ribbon also from Sale-a-Bration.

Then I stamped my image, 3 times. Colored one completely with my Copics. Then colored the other two umbrellas only. I mounted the image to some Banana cardstock and mounted it to my finished card base. I added some Prima Flowers, rhinestone brads, a flower charm, paper piercing, a sentiment (from Whimsy Stamps) and hodgepodge hardware. The final step was to adhere the pieces to the umbrella and create the 3 dimensional effect.

I cut the whole umbrella out and mounted it over the original one in the complete image. Then cut the top part of the umbrella from the third image and mounted that over the already 3D umbrella piece. I gives the illusion that she's actually standing under that umbrella! I also added some bubble stickers to create some 3D raindrops.

So there you have it, a 3D Something! I hope you'll give this challenge a try. Be sure to check out the design team's 3D creations over on STAMP SOMETHING. Alex has some great blog candy on offer for one lucky participant!
