A Totally Twilight Challenge

A TOTALLY Twilight Challenge: Wanna play along?

Just add your Twilight inspired card to this blog post and Judge.Cara will select her favorite. You have until Sunday, August 23 at 8:00 am central time to add your card to this post. Cara will pick her favorite and you will win a STAMP SET of YOUR CHOICE from Gina K Designs.


A few days ago I blogged about how my daughters and I were working on projects together at the kitchen table. My oldest daughter, Cara, was making this Twilight poster: Someone asked that I post it...and that gave us an idea!

Today Cara and I made "Twilight" inspired cards. The cards we made were inspired by one of the four book covers.

Here is what we came up with:

First, here is Cara's card:

She was so secretive while making this---because she didn't want me copying her idea (This is verbatim from her!). I love what she came up with---the little forever tag and bling flowers are so much fun! And I love the overall design. (Can you tell I am so proud of her!?)

Here is my first card (I made two, cause I am fast!)

I was inspired by the same cover Cara used on this one---my checkerboard pattern just morphed a bit. I chose to make a teacher thank you card--taking inspiration from the apple on the first book.

Materials used: Black cardstock (Gina K Designs); Designer paper-Norm's News (October Afternoon), Everafter (Cosmo Cricket); sewing machine; apple-Rebecca Sower (EK Success); buttons (Papertrey); ribbon (Offray); stapler.

Here is my other card:

Removed for Publication

I used Arranged with Love (from Gina K Designs) to create the background. I stamped it once on white cardstock and then another time on black and embossed with white detail powder. I fussycut the black one and layered part over the original.

I layered some cardstock over some sheer red ribbon (taking colors from the covers) and added the friends rub-on. Finally, I added some adhesive rhinestones.

Materials used: Stamps-Arranged with Love (Gina K Designs); cardstock-white, onyx (Gina k Designs), red (SU!); white embossing powder; Versamark; Memento tuxedo black ink; ribbon (unknown); rub on-Make it Personal (One Heart One Mind); Mark Richards Crystals.

Hope you will play along!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Look to me like Judge Cara has inherited her mom's artistic flair!! All three cards are FABULOUS!! Love your color blocks and sketch Cara!! And your apple against the houndstooth bg is fantastic Cam!! Your friend card is simple elegance!! What a creative and fun idea you two!!

Starla said...

Ok. I am probably the only person on this planet who has not gotten into the Twilight mania. BUT!! A couple of the girls at the office are sooo totally into it!! (my saving grace so that I kinda know what the fuss is about)

I LOVE Cara's design!! You should be proud!
Both your cards are great too, but I REALLY like the b/w one!! The mixture just makes that card pop!!
