3/31/21 Honorable Mention at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge Blog!

Howdy peeps! I hope you have an awesome week coming up! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m absolutely thrilled to share that I’m guesting for 613 Avenue Create this month! I was dubbed a Master Rocker at the end of 2020 for receiving the Top Rocker award fairly frequently throughout the year, and was invited to guest design so I chose the month of March! Our challenge this month is Anything Goes with an optional twist of a Slider! What fun – it’s been AGES since I created a slider card and I’m SO in! ;)

This was such an easy card to create. I created the card base and front panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I embellished the front panel with wide washi tape for the water and the sky, and a hand-cut ‘horizon’ in the distance and torn kraft cardstock for the sand (both created from scraps out of the scrap bin). The palm tree, seagulls, sun and starfish are all brads. The shark and shark fin were stamped on a white cardstock scrap, colored and cut with coordinating dies. Once I had the background built, I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner (repeated it three times), cut a horizontal slot with a punch and attached the shark so he slides back and forth, and popped the panel up on a piece of craft foam before attaching the panel to the card base.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from kraft and blue cardstock scraps, stamped the sentiment and shark fin in black ink, and layered the panel on kraft cardstock.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Sliders are so fun – and I’m thrilled that I was able to use up a few cardstock scraps from the bin that never seems to get any smaller, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. What a adorable card. I love it! Especially the Dun nah! I grew up swimming in the ocean every day of the summer. I remember after seeing jaws having that play in my head every time I thought of going in the water.

  3. HI, Leslie,
    Thanks so much for joining us as a Guest Designer this month! I apologize for the late visit. Life overtook me and I am only now beginning to emerge from the weeds.

    Your project is, as always, amazing! I thought that shark fin was too cute! Great project from a great designer!

    Be well and G-d bless
