Awning Card

Published by under 3D projects,cards,general chat | Apr 20 2011

We got home from our annual camping adventure today. This is that holiday: no electricity, no running water. Just some of my favourite people in the world, and Mother Nature. 

We love this holiday each year and look forward to it for months… but we also really look forward to the nice hot shower back at home! Funny how the smell of campfire smoke hangs around for so long, doesn't it?!

This trip was even more special because my younger sister and her boys joined us for a few days. And we stamped! My sister is fairly new to cardmaking so we had a great time going through the basics like cutting cardstock, watercolouring and layering. I just wish we'd taken photos of us stamping on trestle tables out in the bush!

But I do have a card to share with you today. I was chatting to a stamping buddy tonight (hi Jenny) and realised I hadn't posted my awning card. I can't remember where I first saw this technique, but this particular card is based on one that fellow demonstrator Tracy Penn gave me.

The Birthday Bakery stamp set is perfect for this card.

 

Birthday Bakery is one of the exclusive FREE stamp sets for Hostesses (or anyone with a qualifying order). It's such a sweet set! I always partner it with some sparkly Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

The awning is created by adhering 11 punched shapes from the Word Window punch to a strip of cardstock 3.5cm x 10.5cm. The window punchies will overhang at the top and bottom. Adhere to the top of the card front, and bend the bottoms to look like a shopfront awning. Cute!

We made this card at Stamp Club last month, and the clever girls came up with some fabulous themes for other awning cards. How about:

  • zoo (Fox & Friends, Animal Stories)
  • pet shop (D is for Dog, C is for Cat)
  • train station (Choo Choo)
  • fruit shop (Tart & Tangy)
  • a window scene (Lovely As A Tree)
  • baby shop (Baby Bundle)
  • toy shop (Family Favourites)
  • coffee shop (Morning Cup)
  • florist (A Flower For All Seasons)
  • Christmas shop (any of your favourite festive sets)
  • cake shop (Build-a-Cupcake punch)

I also made a chocolate shop with the new Eat Chocolate stamp set from the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue. So many ideas!

Well I'd better stop chatting and get back to the unpacking. Enjoy the rest of your week.

    HI Simone!
    Funny … in my blog travels today … I have already commented on a similar card! Your's is so sweet! Love all the other ideas!
    Sorry haven't popped by recently … but (as you probably know) my dad had a heart attack 2 weeks ago … it is school holidays … my son turned 13 yesterday … and my eldest daughter is in labour as I type! I am excited about my 1st grandchild … but it is a long hard labour and I am a bit distracted.
    Hugs xxaxx
    PS Hope you have a hugely successful convention! Please let me know what place you get … and any other details! (I can't make it this year … we are going to visit Gav's sis & family — missionaries in Vanuatu — in July …so just can't afford it! ) I will miss seeing you! xxx
