Latte Mamma

Latte Mamma provided by Sassy Studio Designs

This is the 2nd week of an Anything Goes Challenge  at Aud Sentiments sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs. This challenge ends on Tuesday, Jan 27, so you have a week to get up to 5 projects entered for a chance at a WIN!  The Team has a delicious set of inspiration projects for you - take a look!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • I wanted to try my hand at this card base concept I have seen popping up here and there.  In my version, the base consists of 2 separate pieces of CS that when folded in half are 1.5 x 4.25 in. each.  The two halves are separated by approximately 0.5 in. and then taped securely to the oval mat for my focal image.  In this 2nd photo you can see there is a 2nd oval, matching the first, that has been fastened to the inside securing the 2 backs of the base card.
  • Also visible from this angle is the Paper Tole or Paper Sculpting that has been done with the image.  This involves printing 3 copies, coloring them with Copics, fussy cutting and 'paper sculpting' the image.  Her slacks are paper pieced.  The cup and her earring have been covered with Duo Glue and then foil applied.
  • The sentiment is a Freebie provided by Ginny H - one of the Senior Designers at Aud Sentiments.

  6. What a fabulous concept. I must admit this is the first time I have seen
    this type of card Ginny but you have certainly given me food for thought. I
    could definitely use up some of the off-cut strips of card that are always
    left from trimming down our A4 cardstock and make cards like this. You have
    done a fab job with the colouring and layering of this Sassy image and the
    sentiment is just perfect. With my DT hat on I'd like to say thanks for
    sharing this card with us at Top Tip Tuesday this time and wish you luck in
    the draw.
