Shape Something

Happy Friday All!

We have a fun new challenge for you over at Stamp Something! This week we want you to show us your shapes! Get creative with various shapes on your projects. See how many shapes you can squeeze onto one card or scrap book page or create a 3D project made out of different shaped items! Be sure to check out the fun design team samples and this week's blog candy, which has been donated by out very own DT member Marcea!

For my card I was inspired by my friend Hanne and her fabulous eye for detail and texture. I adore her style! I got creative with this card, using as many differently shaped items as I could fit on one piece of 5" cardstock!

I used the layout from the new challenge blog Stamp with Fun. The papers are BasicGrey and SU! cardstock in Black, Riding Hood Red, Soft Sky, and Baja Breeze. For my shapes I have a tag, circles, a heart, and some flower shaped buttons.

I distressed some of the papers to create texture and added lace ribbon, ric rac, and grosgrain ribbons. The heart is chipboard painted with craft ink and sprinkled with glitter. The image is a Gorjuss Girl I received from a swap. She's been colored with Copics. I added some twine to a circular green button and then glued on a bird from the patterned paper and placed that on the top corner. I also used a white gel pen to create some faux stitching. I finished with a sentiment from Short and Sweet by SU! held on with a mini paperclip with a flower charm.

Here's the inside of this card. For more shape fun I used the scalloped circle punch and square punch, then finished with a circle to write the message on. I also stamped a couple more thank you sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fantastic weekend. Maybe it will be warm and the Easter Bunny won't be too cold while he's hiding all those eggs! Enjoy your Easter Sunday! Happy Stamping! :)
