I Challenge You Wednesday: Lattice Cards

Supplies: stamp (Stampendous); paper (G-P, gold metallic foil); ink (BIC Mark-Its, Versamark with gold embossing powder, copper metallic marker); Nestabilities Labels 8; silk flowers; gold leaves; homemade mini roses, office brad.

The challenge today was to make a lattice card like Valita has posted several times on her blog. I thought they were so pretty that I really wanted to try my hand at one (or two). This first one is my favorite.

I had a bit of a time photographing these because they sort of "peek a boo" to the inside, so I wanted to show that, too. I ended up having to lay them flat to get a good enough picture.

Here is the inside of the first one:

Are you like me, always searching for the perfect sentiments? I've been hunting for my personal "perfect" birthday sentiment ever since I began stamping. I was thrilled to finally find it in a clear stamp set by Stampendous, along with quite a few other "perfect for me" sentiments!

Supplies: stamp (free digital image from Digital Two for Tuesday blog); paper (G-P, unknown); ink (Colorbox red, BIC Mark-Its); Nestabilities Labels 1; CB vine die; homemade mini roses; Chef Duff brick fondant embossing plate (used with my CB).

This didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned it, but it's okay. I wanted to try creating a scene effect, and I guess I accomplished my goal. :)

This was my last attempt (which was actually my first experiment). I wanted to create a cherry pie effect. So far, so good, I guess. But now I have no idea at all what to do with it. Oh well, I'll post the finished product if I ever figure it out! :)

Now you can go see what my friend came up with this week. Enjoy!

The first is my favorite too.
I wanted to try the pie and the garden wall both, but didn't have time.
Thanks for "introducing" me to this new technique, I'm going to try it again when I get more time!

I love the first card as well. So very pretty! I'm wondering if these are as difficult as they would appear. Guess I'll have to check out the instructions.

Ginny, it's a little bit fiddly and time-consuming, but I wouldn't say it's terribly difficult. It's just a little more "involved". I certainly wouldn't be making them every day, though. :)
