What are you doing this weekend? Come make cards with us on the Fiskateers blog. There will be fun challenges and prizes and a great time. I'll be hosting a couple of the challenges and a game. I think the challenges go up on Saturday morning and we usually get a day or two to finish up the projects we are working on. Check out the blog here: www.fiskateers.com .
Update: Just found out my card made it to the Top-10 this month at DCWV. Yay! You can see all the other Top-10 here: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2013/08/august-stack-holic-top-10s.html
Then, for the fun part. I gathered up a bunch of my punches and started punching and stacking. I used a Hero Arts stamp (CL342) for the sentiment.
I made a card last week with an offset top panel and got so many comments about it, I wanted to use that technique again. Don't you think it adds a lot interest to the card? I love the polka-dot buttons too (Studio G ).
Hope you get to do something fun today. Maybe you want to make a card too. There's still time to join in the fun at DCWV. Here's the link for all the details and below is a copy of the sketch we had to work with: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2013/08/august-stack-holic-template-challenge.html
Hard to believe that July is almost gone! Time to get another DCWV challenge card submitted before time runs out. There's still enough time if you want to join in on the fun. I'll put the link and the sketch below.
I used DCWV’s Chickadee Mésange Pájaro stack for this card. I say this card would work equally well for a woman or a man. I often need a masculine card - lots of men in my family. I will be sending this card to one of them.
I used Spellbinders Labels Eighteen dies for my sentiment tags. I brushed the edges with brown ink to make them stand out. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped with the same brown ink.

And, here's a copy of the sketch to get you started:
I created this card for the Tuesday Trigger- A Painterly Palette challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Using the heat-resist technique to make the circles, I stamped different doily images with Versamark watermark ink and then heat-embossed with white embossing powder onto white cardstock. Then I rubbed pigment ink pads over the top of the heat-resist doilies. I gently rubbed the ink off the embossing leaving behind my white embossing lines. I only used three colors of ink but applied more or less ink to some of the circles to create different shades. Next, I punched 1.25" and 1.50" centers from the doilies. Adhering a few circles with foam tape, I used the darker doilies at the bottom and the smaller circles in the back to give depth and movement to the card.
I also used heat-resist on the sentiment tag. I stamped on white cardstock here as well. Then, I applied the ink, trimmed and matted the sentiment tag with white cardstock.
That gorgeous background cardstock comes from the Chickadee Mesange Pajaro stack from DCWV.
There is still a little time left if you want to come play with us. Check out the details here: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/07/tuesday-trigger-painterly-palette.html
