It's that time again - The Alley Way Stamps SNEAK PEEK TIME!!! And the BE Inspired Chalenge!!! With sneak peeks come giveaways!!! So remember to visit The Alley Way Stamps today (Friday) and EACH DAY for the NEXT 3 week DAYS (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday), because they'll be giving one set away each day of Sneak Peeks! And on Wednesday, it's the Blog Hop when we give away ALL THREE!
I was inspired by the theme, the colours, and the cardboard box boat to create this 3D card using The Alley Way Stamps Kid 'n Caboodle, Background Check and the really cool large photo frame in Framed. Perfect for The Paper Players Framed Challenge too!
Using a 12 inch strip of Bo Bunny Country Garden Weathered, I stamped 4 and a quarter of the frames, with the side edges touching, so that I created one long strip of Framed large photo frames side-by-side. I stamped the Kid 'n Caboodle sentiment on the second and fourth panels, and cut out the middle of the frames using a craft knife. The last quarter frame was tucked in behind the first frame, and secured with double-sided tape to create a four-sided tower.
The Kid 'n Caboodle boat was stamped onto four pieces of Authentique Fresh papers, and these were used to paper piece two whole boats. The two boats were taped back-to-back with two pieces of white cotton thread down the centre in between them. I cut two 7cm square pieces of cardstock and adhered one inside the top of the tower and one inside the base for added stability. The boat was taped to the top piece of cardstock hanging from the cotton, so the boat can bob around in the breeze. Waves from Background Check were stamped onto double-sided cardstock, fussy cut them and adhered diagonally across the base of the tower, so you can view the waves from all sides. Finally I stamped four Kid 'n Caboodle lifesaver rings in Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red and pop-dotted them either side of the sentiment on the front and back of the tower.
I love that it has ended up looking like one of the life saving towers!
You can join in the fun at The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired til November 8th!
