Million Little Things

By this point of the class, I’m pretty sure they just want to make life difficult for the students!  The color schemes seem to be getting more and more weird by the week.

Despite this, I push on!

We were shown a great technique for using background stamps, to make them look totally different.  After three attempts and nothing but frustration happening, I gave up.  It’s a pity, because the technique is fabulous! (I will give it another try down the track.)

However, all was not lost.  I remembered the Pillow Top Technique as shown by Gina K on Stamp TV. (I will try to remember to add the video down the track.)

Above is the end result.

Had I been making this card without color restrictions, it would be totally different.  But this is what I had to work with, so this is it!!!

Stamp is from a duo set by Gina K Designs, and is called Million Little Things.

  1. I just had to chuckle, Cheryl, reading your description! You did exactly what I would have done it that situation: Stick to what you know works, LOL! And what you did worked well!! The banner and the pillow background have so much presence, that the few jewels were all that was needed! Perfect card, if you ask me!

  2. Thanks Gabriele. I did find this card incredibly frustrating, but it all worked out in the end!

  3. I think it is lovely – something quite different.
    Always have trouble with the Captcha – never get it right the first time.

  4. Thanks Lindsay. Everyone seems to like the colors except for me!

    Sorry about the Captcha – I get soooo much spam, it’s the only way to control it. I always copy what I’ve typed before doing the Captcha bit. That way if it rejects it, I don’t have to start over.

  5. Wow, well that’s making lemonade for ya! LOL Yeah, I am taking the same class, and I tried to do some fancy stamping with “my background” stamp and failed miserably. Glad I am not alone, in fact, it seems that I am in good company! LOL Kudos on using this pillow top technique, and it’s just lovely, Cheryl. I do really love that “tuck around” banner, it’s a wonderful addition to your card! I agree, that the colors chosen in class, are kind of weird. Boy, it sure is frustrating working with colors that are chosen for you. Plus, chosing one of three sketches. You would think that it would be easy, but it’s really not. So, I am up against that same issue. I love colors, but they sort of need to make sense to me. LOL You pulled it off! Kudos.

  6. Thanks Anna! It’s funny, I’m not keen on the colors with this card, but everyone else is. What the…..?

    They’re okay, but certainly not what I would have chosen. Even the guest artists had issues with them, so at least we’re not alone.

    Yeah, I do like that tuck around banner. I didn’t use a die for it though, just did it by hand. Trial and error, for sure!
