Whimsy Stamps Challenge: Shape Cards


Happy hump day to you! Two more days left before the weekend. Today kicks off another Whimsy Stamp challenge and this time we want you to get in shape by making a Shape card.  Don't be a square!  Pull out your most unique shaped card and join us for another fun challenge!  I used the image Whimsy's "Connor on Bike" to make my card.

Here's my creation...

Connor on Bike

I used a 5x5 base to make my card.  I used a SVG that I cut on my Cricut to create my card.  I layered some grey Bazzill cardstock and added designer paper from Cloud9Design.  I then layered the image on the Bazzill cardstock.  I colored my image with Copics B12, B14, B16, B29, C1, C3, C5.  I finished my card off with a sentiment from Whimsy, buttons and silver dots from my stash.

Don't forget! You don't have to use a whimsy image. It would be great if you did though, and it doesn't have to be a card. We welcome all paper projects.
Our Prize this week is...

Dont' forget also...As well as a random winner being chosen each challenge one lucky player who has used a Whimsy Stamps image (rubber or digital) will have the opportunity to be a guest designer for a future challenge.If you have used a whimsy Image and would like to be a future guest please add GDT to your name when entering, The guest designer will be able to choose a digi stamp of their choice from the store to create their guest card too!
