Y&FH Challenge #15 reminder

Hello!

Today I have a card to share that coincides with the current challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade, Shaped card for Mother's Day. Stop by Sandie's blog to see her gorgeous card and if you haven't already done so link your shaped cards for Mother's day HERE.  You have until tomorrow at noon, pst to enter.  The prize is a $15 gift certificate to the Y&FH online store!   For this challenge we'd like you to create something other than the normal A2 card.  There are so many fun shaped die cuts out there.  Shoots you could use your Cricut, or other die cutting machine or go total old school and trace something and freehand cut it out!  The possibilities are endless.  Try something new and fun who knows you might become addicted.  lol!  

My scalloped circle card features the cute Fumi with Messenger bag from Yumi & Fumi Handmade


The bright colors were chosen by that patterned paper by BG.  I believe I only have a small amount of it left.  Really love that pattern, doesn't need anything more. lol.. Broke it up with that black circular frame and adhered the rest to a mustard yellow, polka dot embossed cardstock from Bazzil.  The sentiment is my current favorite from AmyR.  I colored Fumi with Copics and have never tried that color combo, but I actually like it.  Here's what the inside of the card looks like...


Yep, it's a scalloped circle easel card!  It's funny, when I tried to remember how to make one of these my memory drew a blank!  Ai-ya!  So I jumped over to SCS and there was a tutorial by the always resourceful Beate.  As soon as I saw the first couple of steps everything started coming back to me. lol.  I decided to go super simple with the bottom part as well.  Trimmed a strip of black cardstock and embossed it with a Swiss dot folder.  The Hero Arts sentiment was stamped on the same patterned paper and die cut with a SU punch.  I also punched out a black circle with another SU punch and glued the sentiment to it.  It's popped up on the black strip to serve as a stopper.
 

Alrighty hope you'll come and join us, you have until tomorrow @ NOON (PST) to link up.  If you don't have a Yumi & Fumi Handmade stamp yet feel free to use any image from our friends at Sister Stamps, La-La Land Crafts, The Greeting Farm and newly added Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  Mahalo for stopping by today.  Have a terrific day!
