Pheweee

Gosh that was hectic- my first attempt at the 10 minute craft dash challenge! The idea is you have some colour inspiration and 10 mins to make a card (you're allowed to gather supplies before hand). I used the inspiration card from Muse Card Club to help speed up my inspiration too.

So these are the colours from 10min craft dash, lovely combo.

I started (before the timer was on) by grabbing a selection of suitable papers (the top and bottom stripes turned out blue in the photo they are in fact dark aqua) , ink, cardbase, stamps etc. I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do- I really like the zig-zag stripes on the Muse card, so I also grabbed my cuttlebug and dies. 


Once the timer was on I cut my 12x12 paper into 6" squares and because it was quite thin I piled up a few layers before cutting out lots of zig-zgas using my MTF dienamics chevron stripes die. I knew I wouldn't have time for careful gluing so I arranged the pieces I wanted to use on a sheet of Lettraset adhesive paper. Next I transferred the stripes onto the base card (they aren't as perfect as I would hope) and the trimmed off the over-hanging edges. 

Finally, I stamped the sentiment- and of course is smudged! But a last min grab of some gems which I keep in the drawer next to where I work (hopefully) covers up the mistake.


I don't think it turned out too bad for a super speedy make, my final times was 7.18 (maybe a went too fast!)- makes me wonder how I spend so long making cards the rest of the time!


Thanks for stopping by,

  7. This card is so happy! If you hadn't mentioned the smudged sentiment underneath the rhinestones, we never would have known- the rhinestones look like they were meant to be placed there! :)
