Celebrate – SST, card challenge – round 5

Hello there!! Time to share my card for the final round of the Supreme Scrap Tournament 2014 :). I had been creating this yesterday evening and had my fingers covered with so much glue, that I had to take breaks from creating to clean them in between :D. Like share a few posts back, we first had to choose a bunch of trash and two pieces of patterned paper. I will show my choices here again – it will hopefully help when trying to figure out the numbers on finished card.

and this is what I created:

We were supposed to use at least half of the patterned paper and I wanted to use as much as I could, so I cut the papers in half creating triangles and glued them together slightly overlapping each other. Then I just started creating DIY flowers by cutting strips of paper/fabric/foil (tissue paper, brown packaging paper, pillow case fabric, paper towel) and rolling them into flowers (this is the part where I had more glue on my fingers rather than on the papers :)…). After I had made a reasonably big amount of flowers, I started to fussy cut leaves. They are made out of gold foil (chocolate paper), perfume packaging, bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard and out of the paper clips.

I also used white gesso and stamped with the bubble wrap and with the Glue Glider tape roll pieces some patterns on the patterned papers. The cord/yarn I is peeking thru here and there between the flowers and the flowers and leaves hold it down. I then cut the Glue Glieder tape roll piece into smaller pieces and added those between the flowers for additional decoration and cut some leaves out of the gessoed (from stamping) bubble wrap. There is also the little crown glued down on one of the white “roses” with a glue dot. Remember, I got that from a bra of mine ;-)…

I wanted to add as much flowers as I could, so they actually go over to the backside of the card, too. The sentiment “Celebrate” I wrote using a black pen. It is written on a piece of corrugated cardboard and accompanied by a little flower, some leaves and cord.

If you open the card, you will find the same papers inside the card too and there is a little brown packaging paper piece fussy cut and glued down inside as a place for additional text/wishes. Oh, and the size..this card has the size of 12×6 inches. I didn´t use any die cutting machine for this one. Everything is hand cut and self made. I really had a fun time making this card and I have truly never, ever spent so much time creating a card, but then again, rolling those flowers took AGES :). But if was fun! I´ve really had a good time making these projects!!

Here are some detail photos:

Happy Friday and good luck everyone!! It has been a lot of fun!

Scrap your trash.. – SST tournament 2014, final round

Hello! I am still pinching myself for making it to the final round in the card challenge group of the Supreme Scrap Tournament 2014!!! I therefore have the honour to place this badge onto my blog :). Eeekkkkk!!

Well, and now it is time for the final round..has me a bit nervous already and it even got worse today, as I saw the requirements go online :-o. The final round consist of two steps.

Step 1:
1. Collect at least 10 different materials/objects that you would normally throw in the trash!
So collect stuff that you can’t buy in a store as a craft element/embellishment.
Examples are: labels of clothes, paperclip, aluminium foil, napkin, piece of cloth.

2. Collect a minimum of 2 sheets of scrapbooking paper size (30,4 x 30,4 cm)

3. Posting your choice:
Make a photo of these objects and the sheets that you choose and post them in this thread before Tuesday, March 25, 21.00 CET Monday, March 24, 20.00 CET (on request of one of the finalists)

and this is what I collected together:

1. one patterned paper in pink with little dots on it
2. one patterened paper in creme with golden stripes on it
3. a piece of an old pillow case fabric
4. a brown packaging paper that comes with each Studio Calico kit I get
5. two different perfume packages
6. a piece of white tissue paper from a shoe box
7. a piece of bubble wrap (was a part of packaging I got)
8. paper clips
9. a little golden crown embellishment (from a bra of mine – LOL!!!)
10. corrugated cardboard (a piece from a kit packaging)
11. a piece of paper towel I used for drying/cleaning my acrylic block after stamping
12. a piece of chocolate wrapping gold foil paper
13. a piece of Ingvild Bolme embellishment packaging
14. some white yarn that came with a present packaging
15. the green pieces are plastic parts from a Glue Arts glue glider tape roll

This should be interesting 😉 !!!

Wishing you… – SST, round 4

Hello lovelies! Today I´d like to share with you my take on the SST round 4 challenge “Hide and Seek”. Like the name of the round says, the challenge is all about hidden elements on a card.

These are the requirements:
Theme, colour, size and type: free

To be used:
– Make hidden elements on the card: minimum of two.
– The hidden part of the elements should not be visible at first sight! It needs opening before one can see what is hidden inside.
– Size of the elements is free
– Type of the elements is free
– One element has to be on the top of the card, the other(s) can be on top or on the inside.
– Think of elements that needs to be moved or turned in order to read the title or quote of the card. Like a hidden note under a flap, a wheel that can be turned, popup etc.
– It is ok if a pulling mechanism is visible. Such as a piece of paper, a fiber or ribbon, a brad used for turning a wheel.

Not to be used:
– All kinds of ink (including spray ink and misting ink)
– No paint of any sort
– No stamps
– No gesso
– No chalk

And here is my take – a interactive camera card with elements to be opened on the front and on the inside of the card.

So what did I do? I first cut a camera out of black cardstock, glued it down on the front and then added a zoom on top of the camera which can be opened and inside the zoom there is a sentiment.

And when you open the card, inside it there is a film strip with a film roll in there. The film strip has flaps which can again be flipped open to be able to see the rest of the birthday sentiment.

All the sentiments and the few decorational elements are stickers. The rest is just white, black and foil cardstock.

So this is my take on the round 4 challenge. This was not the easiest task for me to do, as I usually do not make that many interactive cards, but it sure was a fun one to make and gave me lots of ideas for the future, too.

Thanks for stopping by! Wish me luck..I am crossing my fingers, as there are so many talented girls in the competition, that I probably will not make it to round 5, but I have truly enjoyed the challenges so far and it has been really so much fun ♥. Wishing good luck everyone who is still in the game!!!

xoxo, Sanna
