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!

What a crack up! Your end result was lovely....loved your blurb! I had some serious issues as well, but didn't post my catastrophes!...good for you.
I have "DUH" moments frequently when making things that have very precise measurements. I try to avoid projects like that at all costs. If I do attempt to make such a project my kids will hide if they see me pull that stuff out.
I think your card turned out very nicely. I especially love the color choice for for theme.
I enjoyed looking through your past posts. You have some great supplies to play with. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE those butterflies. When you say Minwax, do you mean the stuff my hubby and my sons put on the vehicles kind of Minwax?? I really want to try this technique. I also LOVE your dog, just adorable. I just wanna grab those jowls and kiss him. I have Boxers. They have great jowls for grabbing too. :D Well hope you have a wonderful weekend. (((HUGS)))
Your persistence really paid off~! Great Peek-a-Boo card! It was challenging for me too, but such a fun interactive card in the end!
I have to admit that I had a pile of boo boo's on my desk too. Once I figured it out then I was pleasantly suprised with the end result too.
You put a lot of effort into this card but look at it , it is splendid..Lis
