~Making Pop Art & Another Reveal + Winner!!~

Good morning! It is Sunday and we are headed to
the pool this afternoon with the boys, they are so excited!
It is our big stay-cation excursion.

I have been wanting to do a pop art card or
layout for a while now, and I finally sat down yesterday
and played with it a little.
My girlfriend is a coffee LOVER and it's her b-day
so this was perfect!
I used my Wall Decor Cricut Cartridge, my Imaginisce i-rock,
Core'dinations cardstock, Purple Cows trimmer, and my 450 adhesive.
First of all I cut 8 images. 1 in each color, then 1
layer in each color. Then I glued them down to a 4 piece
cardstock card.
It took me about an hour to get it perfect, but I am so
pleased with the results! It was fun and it's perfect
for her style and taste!

Now for one more reveal from the September
kit from SFTIO (Theme- Enlightenment)

Honestly when they sent me the kit I was blown away
it is amazing but when I knew I had to create using the
theme "Enlightenment" I was totally intimidated.
The first person that came to mind was Eminem
because for me, he speaks so much truth and dares to
speak on so many subjects that are 100% taboo,
for me personally, that is "enlightened".
So I took his album cover (of course I had one on hand LOL)
and I used that picture, then I used a Clear Scraps ATC card
I brushed it with my Staz-on INK pad and also stained the letters.
It was very strong graphically so I left it simple.

Actually this is one of my favorite layouts for this kit :)

OK on to the My Mind's Eye Halloween Paper Pack

Hi Pinky! I'm lovin' the Pop Art card--you've inspired me to do one, and your SFTIO LO is awesome in its simplicity!
Hugs, RobinJ

Love Is In The Details said...

Wow, your talent and creativity amaze, me. I love the idea and your execution of a pop art styled card, that came out so cool and I simply must lift it ;) As for your LO, in my opinion you can't go wrong with Em, what a way to think outside of the box and the definition is perfectly fitting, love them both!

Denise said...

I'm not a big Eminem fan, but your layout totally rocks.

Ms. Jen said...

Hey Pinky! Your card is great. Being from the NW I'm a coffee lover myself. She'll love it! I really like your layout with Eminem too. I'm always intimidated by the designer papers like that because they're so gorgeous. I like that you left it as a focal point.

Karen AKA Soccerboyzmom said...

I absolutely love your card and that gives me an idea.

Melissa said...

Wow - what an eyecatching card. I may have to scraplift this (if you don't mind). I love it!!!

Kelly Sas said...

This card makes me think of Max Factor. Great pop art. I am going to give it a try. Glad you and your boys are getting to go to the pool!
