Welcome to the
Take the letters L-E-A-P and create any paper crafting project; a card, a scrapbook layout, a journal page, etc.
Here is the trick....whatever you make must use L-E-A-P in it somewhere.
For example: A Lavender (L) card with Embossing (E) and Angled (A) with Prills (P).
Get it? So who is up to the LEAP challenge? Throw a frog into your project... and you've leaped right off the lily pad.
Now on with the projects...
So... when I think "LEAP,"
My design (in Design Space):
"What's that lacey thing?" you ask? HA! That's my first part of LEAP! Lace. Woohoo!
So glad you and are on the same page... The lace reminds me of waves... like in a pond... or a river... or on the Frogger video game. Yes... older people played and still play video games.
The double-round is... of course... the card. And we have our little friend there, as well.
a lot off. And I'm not wild about that... But... believe it or not, I didn't have any Eggshell paper left. And so... I dealt with it. I hope you can, too!
I misted the card in a watery-looking teal'ish. (Love that splattered look...
Rustic... like the look of Nature, itself.)
And the lace was STILL being cut...
A-ha! But look what I found in my stash... during my
enormously long wait. Thank you, Christy Tomlinson...
So I used that beauty for a mask. And placed it... then went over it in a darker blue.
Oooh! Such a pretty Batik-looking pattern!
Mmmm... Mama likey...
But guess what? The Cricut FINALLY finished cutting. And I really liked this...
Look how intricate...
Just poke all that out and we'll be good. I'll wait for you. I've already waited a long time... Don't worry... the bottle is almost gone.
Remember how I said I liked it? So... I flipped the card over... misted THAT side with the teal-ish...
Placed the homemade mask over and...
CRAP!!!! I forgot to tell you what my LEAP was...
Airbrushing! When I went over it in a darker blue... those were Spectrum Noir pens. Beautiful
but they appear to dry out kinda fast. I still have to call Customer Service on all that... And I will. Just a bit busy lately with other dramatic to-do's that require my attention...
And so you know... I took what Design Space gave me and moved it around on the mat (at the cutting stage) to fit where I had spaces on my scrap stash.
uh... HELLO! Don't you see that Pink and Pearly smile?
I put him on both sides of the card (remember... I did both sides...) to see which one I liked more. My homemade side won.
I'm probably a tad biased... Sorry, Christy!
Then I wrote with a thin glue...
Making it into an '80's birthday card, because yeah... the '80's were great! and sprinkled it with GLITTER!
Now... it's quietly waiting in my card stash for an old friend (from my '80's days) to have a BIRTHDAY!
On the other "UP" side, I absolutely love this new embellishment created by the masking...
