Guest Designer Yuki Zepeda and A Card a Day in the Month of May

Thursday, May 12, 2011


Hello Blog Peeps!

Welcome to another "A Card a Day in the Month of May!  Today is my day, and I'm really excited to share my card with you. 
I created my card waaaaay back in March!  Yes!  You read that right!!!!  I was AHEAD of the game for change.  I used the Exotic Bird Collages set (T-3110) and the Damask Backgrounder set (T-3276); two of my favorite stamp sets!!!!!

I used a yellow Prisma color pencil to add just a hint of color to the pelican's beak.  The words are from the Sophisticated Sentiments set (TB-3364).

Something that I LOVE to do is create "FAUX" stuff.  Faux seude, faux sanding--love all the FAUX stuff.  So for this card, I made some faux scallops by punching out circles to create scallops--see?


I know it's been done before but just in case you hadn't seen it, now you have!  :}  Just think how easy it is to change the size of your faux scallops--little circles, little scallops; big circles, big scallops! Love it!!

Something else I try to do with each card I create is to write the "recipe" on the back of card RIGHT AFTER I create THE final version of my card.


I list the stamp sets I used, the pads, accessories, everything I need to know to re-create it again.  See the date I completed my finished card???  If you know me, you know that "Yuki" and "self-discipline" do not go together!!!  I have no self-discipline, but I do try really really hard to write the recipe on the back of each and every card I create.  (If only I thought housework was just as important!)


So, there you have it--another "Card a Day in the Month of May" based on a fantastical sketch.
