Little 3x3's

The challenge on SCS today was to make 3x3 "Quick" cards with some kinda quick tool and limited embellishments. They were so fast that I had time to make 3 of them today!!

The first card was made with the new release from My Favorite Things. You guys are probably sick of seeing this image by now 'cause I've been using it so much lately - but I love it!! I colored the image with markers and sponged the background with blue ink. The snow has a little bit of sparkle added to it. The corners of the picture are rolled up a touch and the other 2 corners are held down with photo anchors. I just used a simple sentiment of "Chillin'"

The second card was made with another MFT stamp set that was just released. I colored the boots with markers, then matched up DCWV textured paper. The edges of the red are sanded down to show the white core. There are NO EMBELLISHMENTS on this card.... can you believe it?? I really wanted to add something, but couldn't think of anything it really needed!

The third card was just made tonight as I was messing around in the studio. I had this image that I colored a few days ago after stamping out images for a PIF. Off-Topic: Has anyone participated in this on SCS?? It's so much fun to trade images... I'm addicted! Okay back on topic... I finally unpacked my sewing machine, so I made a little spiral on the aqua background paper before adhering it to the purple. The simple sentiment is a rub on from Basic Grey purchased from Jacksonbelle Embellishments.

Which one is your favorite?

One last thing... someone asked about my photography. I use a light tent that I purchased online - it is a opaque white tent with 2 spotlights. I just set my cards on white paper as a base and background. The light tent filters the light so there are less shadows on the card. It works great!

These are all great! I think I like the 3rd one the best, just cause. The first one cracked me up...I thought the hardware was a blow dryer. LOL

I love all three! The firt two just scream winter and I love them, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the little monster--he's just so cute :)

WHere did you get your light tent? I'm doing some looking for photography lighting/backdrops.

I love the little monster! The stitching is fabulous;)

DeniseLynn said...

Oh so cute {All THREE!} and funny thing the little monster guy seems to be my favorite. It's not normally what I would choose but that little guy and those colors are just calling out to me. Maybe it's due to my own little monsters here that are running amok today. Ok now I've got to get that sewing machine out and figure out how to use it. {well ok seriously maybe at naptime - or maybe next year! ha ha}

Now off to check SCS. It's been forever since I've peeked in over there and I would just be thrilled to do a swamp after the holiday hustle is done. Can anyone join in? Oh what fun it sounds like and I'm sure to become addicted too but that's not so bad really. *snicker*

DeniseLynn said...

Swamp? Did I type swamp - what a dork. hee hee I meant to say SWAP! *LOL*

I like the first card the best although the last card would make a cute kids invitation. We need more info on the image swap. I would like to do this.

I don't like having to chose one!! It's too hard on my brain! But, I would pick #2

Wendy L. said...

My favorite is #1. I love the 3x3 size too.

Deb said...

Love them all, but if I had to make a choice I would pick the snowman card. I really like the colors on that card.
btw, your photos are great :D
Happy Holidays!

I love them all, but I think the boots one is my favorite! I need to put an MFT set on my Christmas list, I think. :)
