Words 2 Scrap By Challenge #3

It is time for Challenge #3 over at Words2ScrapBy. These ladies started their blog in January and one of my goals for 2014 was to step out of my comfort zone and join in a challenge or two. It was a little more comfortable for me because these ladies are fellow OWH card makers. So far I linked a card for the January challenge, two for the February challenge and below is my card for the March challenge.

Your challenge is to make a card inspired by one of the 4 quotes listed below. Entries must be linked by March 21.

  • There’s no place like home. (The Wizard of Oz, 1939)
  • The stuff that dreams are made of. (The Maltese Falcon, 1941)
  • Here’s looking at you, kid. (Casablanca, 1942)
  • May the force be with you. (Star Wars, 1977)

I’ve had this cute stamp set from Taylored Expressions and I love the sentiment so much.


I colored in the wreath using copics, then cut the wreath out using the matching die. I layered it on some lavender card stock using Spellbinders die. I fussy cut the two doves and used dimensional tape to pop them up. Used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the green layer and used a white piece for the sentiment then used a die cut — I left the sentiment in the die and sponged Memento lulu lavender around the sentiment – that gave me a white border around the sentiment (it softens it up a bit rather than having a stark white piece). I then layered the sentiment on another piece of lavender cardstock. Used some bakers twine to finish it off.

Can you guess which quote I used for my inspiration? Hope you will think about joining in on the fun over at Words2ScrapBy.

  1. Here’s looking at you, kid!! Love all of the different elements you used. Lots of dimension, texture, and subtle color shading. Great overall card!! Thanks for playing along with us at Words2ScrapBy.blogspot.com.

  2. Hi, Anne.

    This card is so sweet! Love how you sponged around the sentiment and that you fussy cut the little birds. It’s the little details like these that make this such a great card. 🙂

    Bobbi and I thrilled that you chose W2SB as one of your new challenge blogs! And, we really appreciate your shout out. Thanks so much for joining our Oscar-inspired challenge!

  3. Great card for this challenge. Such pretty colors here along with the very well done fussy cutting (I’m not good at that). The twine is a great little addition. Enjoy your weekend.
