ISC Weekly Challenge for 04/26

This week's challenge was hosted by Antme/Patti.  She asked us to the make an ATC that will make you "Laugh out Loud."  

ATCs seem to be popping up lately.  I joined a swap, now a challenge...what will be next?

I made two for this challenge.  One was a chance to use my new set of Stampin' Up! stamps and the other was to use my new Cricut Hello Kitty.  

The top ATC was fun to do.  With the image being an old 35 mm camera I went with a sepia inspired scheme.  I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots emboss folder and lightly inked over it so the dots would pop out a little more.  I just finished it off with some brown/cream ribbon.  You can't really tell, but there is some glitter glue on the lens and flash of the camera.  The sentiment reads..."Everyone has a photographic memory...some just don't have film."  I used the set "That's Funny!"  I will be playing with that one later.  :)  It has some cute/funny phrases.

The second ATC was rally fun to do.  I just got my Cricut and I'm still learning how to use some the cartridge features.  I picked up this Hello Kitty one during the awesome sale Michael's had this past week.  Hello Kitty is one of my favorite images and I'm super excited about this cartridge.  I used HK paper for the background and added a quote of "A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway."  I find this quote both cute and funny.  Mostly because it's very honest.  I tied the ribbon just under HK paws to make it look like she is holding onto to it.  It was really fun to use this image.  I think I got it down how to make the characters from Cricut.  I will blog on that one day down the line.

I thank Patti for this challenge.  I connected me back with my love of quotes.  I have many webpages bookmarked that I use in my scrapbooking and cardmaking.  I hope that others will enjoy these.  I actually can't wait to use them on some cards I am planning in the future.

Thank you for looking today.
I hope this inspires your imagination.
