TYI! #24 and MIM #215

As I mentioned on my last post, I'm in the middle of preparing my mom to move out of her house and into a senior apartment.  I snatched a little time away from sorting and packing to play along with a couple of challenges this week.  Danielle demonstrated how to bring the inside of the card onto the outside for the Make It Monday Challenge, and Anja gave great inspiration with her card for Tag, You're It!  I was inspired by Anja's use of color, stencils, and star accents.  I had to cut down four layers to bring the inside out, but what fun!

Here's the card lying flat:
 
 Here's the inside of the card:

Here's the card standing upright:

Stencil: Tim Holtz Dot Fade
Inks: PTI Tropical Teal, Brilliance Starlite Black
Paper: PTI Terracotta Tile, Aqua Mist, MME Miss Caroline
Stamps: PTI Baker's Dozen August Cupcake and "Birthday"
Dies: PTI Baker's Dozen, Scene It: Skyscapes (stars), One Liners: Happy
Paint:  Distress Paint Mowed Lawn mixed with Broken China, Adirondack Snow Cap
Copics
Cardbase, leather twine, wire, and foam all Hobby Lobby brand

I hope you have time to play this week too!
Here is Anja's inspiration piece for Tag, You're It! #24

Thanks so much for coming over to visit!  Have a wonderful day!

  12. So bright and cheery! LOVE that center panel with the peekaboo to the inside. And I'm in awe of your mixed pattern scheme. There's so much going on, but nothing feels overwhelming. That's not a talent that everyone has.

  17. Love, love how you did your card Kara! I think it is so cool how you did the peek a boo window through your tag instead of the card base...true thinking outside the box! Good luck with the moving for your mom...I know what a BIG job it is from when we had to move and downsize for my mother in law. Sending prayers your way!! :0)
