OWH VCMP - Disappearing Act with Sketch #63

I am behind on my challenges and even further behind on my posting but I am NOT throwing in the towel just yet!  I am blessed to work for Genesee Christian School and we have today, President's Day, off school so I have all day to catch up and finish up the challenges.  Yay me!'
Challenge #5 is called Disappearing Act with Sketch #63 in which we are challenged to use OWH Sketch #63 with a full sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper - making 6 cards to "make it all disappear."  The hardest part of this challenge for me was choosing the paper to use!  I have a ton of 12 x 12 papers that were given to me a few years ago and  honestly think I need to get serious about weeding it out and giving some away to the elementary school....but not today!  Today I create!

The patterned paper I believe I picked up at JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby.  It matches the retired (sad face) Stampin' Up! Brocade Blue card stock, ink, and brad.  The words are also retire SU! from a set called Sage Advice.  I used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss the stars and cut out the stars.
Although the challenge only called for 6 cards I found that I had 3 strips of paper left over so I grabbed them up and made a 7th card that I like just as much - best to do that while my desk is already covered with the matching ink, brads, and card stock.

And here is a great photo of all 6 together - I'm sorry but I love this photo!  My camera is forever old and I hate it but somehow the angle of this photo makes me happy.  Obviously it doesn't take much.

I have Challenge #6 done too but will wait for awhile to post it :) 
Having a BLAST!  Are you?


  1. Oh, my yes. I love that 7th card. And technically I said you'd get AT LEAST six cards, so you are just a fellow over-achiever. heh heh

    Thanks so much for participating!!!

  2. Lisa,

    I LOVE these cards! I think it's the monochromatic palette that does it for me -- a perfect combo of dp, sentiment, embossing, and focus element.

  3. I love all the stars! What a great theme you chose.
