Default TLC421 ~ Transform a Map ~ (03/18/13)

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day...I'm not Irish but I always wear green on March 17th...I think that makes me an honorary Irishwoman one day a year!!

Are you ready for a fun challenge this week?? I have chosen to....Transform a Map...into something wonderful!!!! Maps are so trendy now...they have been used to make all kinds of things, for example:

1. You can make flowers from a map.
2. Create a background or use it on a layer or two.
3. Paper piece a dress for a girl image
4. Use it for die cut or punched trim
5. Use for an *I miss you across the miles* card or a *Keep in touch* card

What if you don't have a map....you can use the map in a telephone book or print one off the net.

See...you have no excuse not to play!!!

Be sure to post a link to your card here in this thread because we are having gallery problems and I want to find your card!!!

Note: I edited my card and added one more word to the keywords line. It showed back up in the TLC421 gallery... so If your card is missing, give that a try!!!

My sample


Keep in Touch


Remember when uploading to use keyword TLC421 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC421 Gallery here !!


Happy Stamping!!!

Smile TLC421 Cat Joy Tag

For this map challenge, I used a CHF stamp set for my background- and added this cute cat and a sentiment for my tag- here's Cat Joy Tag

I'm sort of cheating here, as I made this ATC a few weeks ago, but it fits the challenge today and I had not posted it before.

For TLC421, I created a collage type of a card for this week's featured stamper, FS320 and used the "Transform a Map" idea for added inspiration. Here is my card:

This is a cool challenge. I used some background paper that had a map. Here it is.

Thank you, Joan, for this cool way of looking at a map. I did mine as a triple mapping technique (aka triple stamping technique).

A belated entry! It took me a while to come up with something for this challenge but was inspired when I had to make a birthday card for a young friend this week:
