Default TLC315 ~ Thatís Odd ~ 03/07/11

Hi friends!

A huge thanks to Joan for covering the last few TLCs while I got my health in order. Iím beginning to understand when people say it sucks to get old! Iím slowly getting my sea legs back.

~ Thatís Odd ~

Ok, this week weíre going to focus on odd shaped cards (anything but a A2, square, etc.). Also, as a *bonus*, Iím asking that you use something on your card that you wouldnít normally see on a card. If you canít think of anything for the *bonus*, thatís ok. You can also make a 3D item, as long as itís not square or rectangular!

Some tips:

ē Try template websites or the template area in the forums here on SCS.

ē If you canít find a template, try searching for clip art in the shape you want and making your own template. You can do that by copying it into a word document and adjusting the size. Then print on cardstock.

ē Use your Nestabilities in creative ways.

ē Trace something that has an interesting shape (fold cardstock and line it up at the edge)


Hereís my sample:

~ Splishiní and A Splashiní ~

Remember when you are uploading to use keyword TLC315 (no spaces).

You can view the entire TLC315 gallery HERE.

****** I know many of you like to combine challenges. You could use this challenge as a jumping off point for the Spotted Canary Spring Challenge! If you havenít seen the details on this challenge, youíll want to! There is a huge prize being offered to one lucky stamper
********

Oddly enough, I canít wait to see what you make

Welcome back, Holly. Glad you are feeling better. Joan did a bang-up job while you were gone. Thanks, Joan.

I'm in Easter card-making mode and decided to carry that theme for my card for today's challenge. I used to LOVE those diorama sugar eggs as a child...I ATE them too. It's a wonder that I have a tooth in my head after all that sugar! : )

REMEMBER THOSE DIORAMA SUGAR EGGS?

Holly, it's glad to see you back! I hope you are feeling better. I am with you.....getting old sucks!

LOVED your challenge idea. I had been thinking of making a round Easel card for a while. So your challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Spring is in the Air

Have a wonderful afternoon.
Hugs and smiles

Here's one more card for the challenge:

Faux Frosted Cookie card by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Not so oddly shaped (scallop circle), but surely being served up on a spatula adds to it's odd-ness!

I saw an adorable card in the Jan/Feb issue of Paper Crafts magazine, and this challenge was a perfect time to try this lamp shape.
