Opus Gluei in Reach Challenge

Good morning Stampers! Happy Thursday! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Today's card is one I made after reading the new challenge at a new blog I found recently called the Order of the Opus Gluei-silly name but super fun! These ladies know how to get their craft on! :)

The challenge is to create something using just what is within reach of your work space and nothing else. I actually learned about the challenge on Monday morning, but I had cleared EVERYTHING off of my work space (insert shocked face here!)before leaving on Friday for my fabulous camping weekend. So I couldn't play until I had created something else and the mess that always goes with my creative process.

I had a made a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and used the Nursery Necessities set to create a baby card for yesterday's post. So the materials I had out I used for today's challenge. I have two family members having baby boys in July so another baby card worked out terrific!

I started out with a Bashful Blue card base, stamped the stars from the Nursery Necessities set randomly in bashful Blue and added a leftover strip of Delicate Dots DSP from the Sale-A-Bration special. I stamped the little chicks in So Saffron and punched them with my 1" Circle Punch and matted them on Certainly Celery punched with my 1 1/4" Circle Punch. The elephant is stamped in Bashful Blue, cut out and layered on a 1 3/8" Square of So Saffron. The final touch is the sentiment stamped in Basic Black. Cute!

Stamps: Nursery Necessities Paper: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Delicate Dots DSP Ink: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Basic Black Accessories: 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, 1 3/8" Square Punch

  1. Cute card. Love the elephant...when my son was small he loved elephants and giraffes, so they always say "baby boy" to me.

  2. Cuteness exemplified. I love this. Adorable papers. Isn't it great to be able to use up scraps for a great project! Thanks for joining in the Opus Gluei fun.

  3. What an adorable card! I love the elephant best!

    A clean workspace, what is that???? I just don't understand - you mean, there is a table under all this stuff? That's just crazy talk!

    Thanks for playing at Opus-Gluei - I love that you think we get our craft on!!!
