The August Challenge:
PROJECT RUNWAY! Do you watch this show? It's perfect for creative types like us! On PR, the designers are given crazy challenges each week and asked to maintain their own personal style or point of view in their creation.
So, what's your stamping style or point of view? Would you consider your style to be CAS (Clean and Simple), Cutesy, Graphic, Vintage, Elegant, Layers & More Layers, or what? Describe it any way you like, it's your style after all! Today's challenge is to show us a couple of different projects using the same supplies. Show us one CAS card and one Fancy Fold card while still retaining your own personal style as much as possible.
This challenge was actually tough for me because I don't think of myself as having just one style. I admire many different ones and like to try my hand at new ones. I decided to go with more of my whimsical style for this challenge.
First up is my Clean & Simple (CAS) card. I decided to really make it CAS, with lots of white space and a minimal look.
To make it my own "whimsical" style, I used lots of liquid dimensionals and glitter Stickles.
Next is my second card, which is a Fancy Fold card. I love Fancy Fold cards because they make a big impact even with minimal embellishment. For mine, I did a Multi-Panel Fold Card (tutorial here.) I carried over the colors from my CAS card, using the same Make a Wish stamp set.
More Stickles and dimensionals carried over my style from one card to the next.
Stamps: Make a Wish (Taylored Expressions); Patterned Paper: This & That (Echo Park); Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Dusty Durango (Stampin' Up!), Solar White (Neenah); Accents: Liquid Pearls, Stickles (Ranger), Button (generic); Fibers: ribbon (Stampin' Up!); Dies: Make a Wish Balloons (Taylored Expressions)
