Welcome to the finale of Handmade Cards week!
So far we’ve talked about pretty much every section in the issue, which are
- Basic Supplies
- Ready-Made Embellishments
- Stickers & Tapes
- Fabrics & Fibers
- Color Media
- General Craft Supplies
- Metal, Wood, & Cork
- Around the House
Raise your hand if you have in your stash at least one item that fits into each category here. (Raises hand with head held high.)
At the very end of the issue, we show you how to use a certain amount of supplies to maximize your style. We asked four of our Go-to Gals to make cards using either 3, 5, 7, or 9 supplies on their cards.
Teri Anderson used 3 supplies, keeping it cute but simple: paper, stickers, and twine on her card. Windy Robinson used 5, adding a little more punch: paper, lace, ribbon, button, and rhinestones!
Julie used 7: paper, tag, library card, tape, twine, food coloring, and text coffee filter. And Betsy, with the most supplies, used 9: paper, tape, wood stars, enamel dots, brad, twine, sticker, rub-on, and chipboard arrow.
We decided it would be fun to recreate these last couple of pages in the issue for today’s hop! Each of the participating hoppers will be sharing a card they made that uses either 3, 5, 7, or 9 supplies! Plus, they’ll be offering up a copy of the issue on each of their blogs. That’s 8 chances to win a copy of the issue.
Before you start, remember to come back here when you’re done! We have a cool prize to give away to three lucky winners! So really, that’s 12 chances to win! Now go, hop, comment, and win!
