Fun With Alphabets!
This week, Chrissi's Belli Challenge (CBC56) is to use Monograms or Alpha sets! I knew I bought those things for a reason!! LOL!! Actually, the cards I made for today's challenge use the SU Jumbo Outline Alpha set that I love...ever since I bought it, I haven't bought any others!! Seriously, it is such a versatile set!! For the Belli Challenge this week, I used it in two ways: This first one I stamped out the word of my choice and colored the letters in with copics -- I purposely jumbled them up so I didn't have to worry about alignment. I added a little Inkadinkado birdie and the "at the Nest" sentiment. This 2nd card I stamped the Jumbo Outline Alpha letters onto my most favorite-est DP of the week, Me and My Big Ideas stack (do you recognize it!!?), cut them out and assembled them in a jumbled fashion onto more M&MyBI DP. I punched the Fiskars border punch onto some Chocolate Chip CS and threaded some satin ribbon through the holes. Then punched a SU scallop border through that piece and punched some 1/8 holes through the scallops. ( I'm loving the punching lately...can you tell, hee hee!!) The word "Happy" is a stamp by Hero Arts. I'm thinking I'll probably embellish this card a little more when I'm ready to give it away (a big ole Prima or something, right??), but for now, "it is what it is..." Anyhow, if you have any unloved Alpha sets or monograms in your stash, pull them out and give this fun challenge a try!! Upload to SCS using keyword CBC56.
