Here is the challenge, copied from the blog...
- Create a card based on the layout provided (Peachy Keen Stamps are not required for this challenge, but if you've got them, we looooove seeing how you create with them!)
- Project must include basic elements from the sketch, and color combo!
Not too hard, so I decided to keep it simple. Here is what I came up with...
I cut the card 4 x 6 to begin with. Now the really fun part. I used a free program that I downloaded from the internet to get the EXACT colors from the color swatch above. It is called "Color Cop," a free multipurpose color picker. Someone on the Cricut Message Board told us about it (not sure who the original poster was that mentioned it, and I won't go into the little tiff that broke out over "who was the first to mention it"...crazy!) Any whoo...after you download this neat little program, you open it and take the little eye dropper and hover over the color swatch and it tells you the exact RGB code of the color and you enter it in your Imagine and TADA!!! you print and cut with the exact colors! This makes me giddy it is so cool :)
To enter the RGB (red, green, blue) numbers you click on the image, then the little edit pencil and then in the color palette below the image there is a square with a rainbow and a down arrow, click it and you will see the place at the bottom to enter the codes. IT IS SO COOOOOL! This is a HUGE reason I love my Imagine. The card above was made with white cardstock.
And of course I had to stamp on a cute little Peachy Keen face. The two large volleyballs were cut from Sports Mania at 1.5" and the three small ones were cut at 1.2". I cut the "I dig" from the same cartridge at 1" and then I inked all the edges, because that's the way I roll! :D
Now for the volleyball net in the background. I had this cool stuff in my stash for ages. It is called Magic Mesh and I don't know if you can even get it anymore. I got it from Leaving Prints, a direct sales scrapbook company I used to work for which no longer exists :(. It is sticky on one side and I inked the non-sticky side to make it black-ish because it was white. Then I just cut 1/4" strips for the tape across the top and bottom.
On the inside I cut the "YOU" using the Varsity Letters Lite cartridge from Walmart and cut them at 1 1/2". I really like the way it turned out and I hope you do also.
