PP OTP Project

Hi Purple Pumpkin People!!

It's Belinda again today, thrilled to be bringing you my second DT project. I thought I would try something a little different and create a Boy Card Box (because I'm always struggling to find good boy cards). Sam's gorgeous embellishments don't need to be restricted to just layouts. They are so versatile and the buttons so darn cute that they lend themselves perfectly to cards...

...So here is the lid of the box...



...and here is just a view of the side of the box...



...and now for the cards!! I'm starting with my favourite one. This card is a little bit vintage so I decided to alter the Aeroplane Button to give it a bit of an aged look. To do this I simply gave it a light spray of Sand Glimmermist which worked really well. So well in fact that I am definately going to be trying that again. Don't you just love experiments that work!! LOL So don't be afraid to alter your own embellishments but maybe practise on something else first!!...



...oh and I couldn't wait to use the lovely and bright XL Panda button on this card...



...now for this card the fabulous XL Penguin button didn't have quite the right shade of green in the background. Solution: I rubbed in some Crushed Olive Distress Ink to change the green and it worked a treat...



...I really love this gorgeous XL Tiger Button...



...the owl button...



...and here they all are together in a group shot (just before the wind blew them all down!! LOL)...



Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope this has inspired you to use your Purple Pumpkin embellies in an OTP project too.

Cheers
Belinda

Totally AWESOME set of cards... those 'cards' on the LO go soooo well with the buttons. Where on earth did you find them?

Hi Anne. Those playing cards are by My Mind's Eye from their Alphabet Soup range. Have had them set aside for ages waiting to make cards with them. The Purple Pumpkin embellies are a perfect match!!

Fabulous cards Belinda! I find "boy" cards really hard to do too and I know what you mean by practicing a altering technique on something else first.
