If you make a peek a boo card and enter it into the challenge you may win a new stamp set!!I really feel we need to better use what we have in our stashes. In the stamping world beautiful new images are poured out like a feast for stampers to indulge in. Unfortunately the images are there but the ideas to use them when we get home are not! This is why Speedy Tv is such a great tool hosting many challenges and offering an awesome selection of tutorials! Naturally they go hand and hand with their beautiful stamps!
This week the Tutorial is the peek a boo card. And It was a real problem for me. I just couldn’t get the measurements correct and I couldn’t visualize the assembling. I think I was just a total Duh on this one. I even thought about not doing this assignment! But I thought no, I have at the smarts of a fifth grader so I will just keep working at it!
I decided to find a tutorial on you tube: and then changed the punch to something simpler to line up!
There are many of them, you can just do a you tube search on peek a boo cards to find one that suits you. I used the “Be Virtuous set and Dragonflies” both are new July releases !!
I did end up putting a small piece of acetate over the images to help the card slide better. Do to a couple of ink splooges, I will use a note card and tape it in to the card when I am ready to use it.
This card took me two hours!! And as I was making it I said never again!! But once I had the “A Ha” moment I thought I can’t wait to make a bunch more!!
Give it a try, nobody could be worse at this than I was, and the end results are so great, totally worth the time to learn a new trick!!
Thanks for stopping by!
