7/15/21 Top Pick of the Week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge!

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great day! Thought I’d pop in this evening with one of the quickest cards I think I’ve ever made in all my years of crafting… took less than 30 minutes and looks like I spent hours on it! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created this card for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge which is always Anything Goes with an optional twist – and this time the twist is to create a twisted easel card. Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps is our sponsor this month so come on over and play! It’s been a minute since I created a twisted easel card and I was surprised at how easy it came back to me. The fun (and fast) part about this card is that I already had the stamped and die cut background with flowers and the stamped gingham background in my rather large bin of pieces and parts and extra die cuts! Yesssss!

I cut the card base from CutCardStock Basis 80# Black cardstock and added the already-made upper and lower background panels. The upper panel was created with layered squares cut from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Basis 80# Black cardstock using the My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX Die-namics. I adhered flowers and leaves stamped with the Altenew Build-A-Flower Hibiscus stamp set and cut with the coordinating dies, stamped the Brutus Monroe Super Sentimental sentiment in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink, and added several tiny iridescent gemstones. The lower panel was one I stamped with the Concord and 9th Gingham Background stamp set back when I was still using Stampin’ Up ink. The stacked sentiment for the easel stop is from the Altenew Painted Butterflies stamp set. I added a few larger iridescent gemstones in one corner to complete the lower panel.

And one final look all folded up… so loving how this turned out! And I can’t believe how fast it worked up – that bin of extra pieces and parts sure paid off big time!

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
