Crafty Cardmakers’ Challenge 28 – Video Inspiration – DT example

The theme for this week’s Crafty Cardmakers is a Lady Gaga Video. 


See stills on the Crafty Cardmakers website if you prefer not to watch the video – definitely not my cup of tea, lol!

From the video, I focused on silver, white, diamonds and bling but also on the part where she looks in a mirror, which is why the frame is there.


I stamped the image (Time to Stamp Glamour Girls) in Brilliance Starlite Silver on Glossy card, then cut to fit the frame (Life’s Journey from K&Co).  The background is stamped with a Kars’ Harlequin Background, then heat embossed with a Silver/White sparkle Embossing powder.


The silver mesh (from my stash) was attached with a bit of double sided carpet tape (Wilko special, lol) behind the frame, then with 6 silver square brads – 3 at top left, 3 at bottom right – turned to look like diamonds.  I didn’t want it to be firmly attached.


The word ‘Divine’ was from the same stamp plate and was stamped and embossed with Fine silver Embossing powder, then layered onto silver mirror card.


Wire embellishment (Woodware) was attached with Glossy Accents and after attaching the stamped layer to a piece of silver mirror card, then to a folded white card, I attached the frame to the front – again with super strong Double sided carpet tape, to keep it secure.


The prize for this week is approx £10 worth of Die cuts from

Susie Sugar of Die Cut Dreams

We’d love to see you take part this week. 

Thanks for looking.

  1. I wouldn't have had a clue what to do with that, Cath but your card is perfect! Not really my type of music either and that is a very weird video too!!Helen x

  2. Wow Cath, this is gorgeous! Love how you have explained the element of the video you were inspired by!You know, I have heard that song loads of times but that was the first time I have seen the video, hmmmm, mad, wild, fraky!! She is not my bag of chips either but suppose her individual creativity makes her stand out from the crowd lol!Sarah x

  3. Beautiful, original and truly inspiring, just like Gaga herself 🙂 If I find the time, I might have a go at this challenge as it's just sooooo tempting and calling my name out to do it. Pxx

  4. Great DT card! I happen to love Lady GaGa and I am have Grandkids that love her too. I think the nice thing about this challenge is that it gives everyone a chance to pick what inspires them. You don't have to like the music or video to find something. I just love the freedom that this challenge has allowed. To me it's the concept of the challenge, not the individual video. I loved it and I love your card too. Great job.
