LOL Thankfully the real cable isn't out! You'll see why I called this post that in a second. First I want to thank everybody who stops by! My blog has reached a milestone of 2,000 views! I am totally excited about that! Thank you so much! As the New Year is just about here, I am excited for the new projects I will make and share with everybody!
So this card was inspired by Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger: Stripe-tastic. There's still time to play--Go check it out!
Also I am entering this card into the City Crafter Challenge Blog: Make the Cut CCCB#89 and Simon Says Stamp Challenge Anything Goes! Go check out these awesome blogs as well! There's still time to play!
So here is my card! I got new Paper Smooches stamps for Christmas (from my wish list at Simon Says Stamp! Thanks sis!) And I have been really wanting to use them--I got the boob tubes set. And I looked at the stripes. And then I had to completely go through my die cut drawer (that is a story for another blog entry!) And I saw the zig zags...and thus this card came together...Scroll on down and I'll show you what I did!
I stamped my square TV onto a scrap piece of white card stock. You can see where I made a flower with it at some point. I used Crayola markers and colored pencils to color it in. I don't have a brown Copic marker :( But no worries, I think it came out nice. Then I cut it out.
Ok, let me tell you about these zig zags. If you have been scrapping for a long time (say at least 10 years or so ago) you may have even seen these. They came in a pack and each color sheet had zig zags, squares, squiggly lines, and other shapes. I am not sure where all mine have gone, hopefully in scrapbooks of yonder year but here are some that remain. I think Fiskars made them, but don't quote me...that packaging is long gone... So I cut these down to size and these are on my tv. Like what sorta happens if your cable goes out ;)
Since I'm not using an 80 inch TV (haha!) I used tape to help keep the zig zags together so I could put them and the tv together.
I cut out the center of the tv to make a black center to build the zig zags on. I know some of the background of the tv would show through, and I thought black just looked better.
So here is my TV. I used pop dots and put it on a yellowish piece of scrap paper (I think it's from Making Memories). Then I put it on a piece of Kraft paper. The background is 7 Gypsies. The sentiment I made up and hand wrote--I'm off without you!. I used decorative scissors that were kind of wavy to bring that whole TV waves through the rest of the card. I also inked the edges of the both pieces of Kraft paper.
Here's the inside.
Here's my finished card. Until next time my friends....where's the remote control? ;)
