Developing Polaroid

Hi Stampers!

Today is a new Loves Rubberstamps challenge with an Easter theme! I decided to use my Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe as my Inspiration piece because I LOVE how it turned out and thought it was pretty cool! PLUS ... I just couldn't wait another day to share :D

This week at The Cutting Cafe we had our choice of using either the Camera Photo Shaped Holder Template or we could choose one of Regina's new release files called Polaroid and Camera Fun Template and Printable Stamp Set which is the one that I used.

I had come across a fun technique awhile ago that makes your stamped Polaroids look like they are developing! As soon as I saw the Polaroid frames in the new file I knew I had to finally try it out!

Here is the front that shows the three Polaroids in each of their developing stage...

Isn't that AWESOME? The first Polaroid is the brownish, black one like you just snapped it and it starts the developing phase. The second one you can just start to see the image but it still has the brownish hues. The 3rd one shows the photo fully developed!

Here are close ups of the Polaroids so you can see each one a little better...

I have never made a card this size before - it is 9" x 4" and is the perfect size for mailing in a business size envelope! I also decorated the inside of my card for the 1st time - LOL! I love the look of having the insides finished too, but I never seem to get that part done! Here is what my inside looks like...

Here is a close up of my little Easter Tilda in her paper pieced outfit:

I hope you enjoyed this card today! Be sure to head over to The Cutting Cafe and pick up these awesome files - you will have so much fun using them! Also be sure to check the Inspiration Blog on Wednesday to see all of the projects that the Design Team created! It is always so fun to see everyone's creations that are so different using the same files!

Also be sure to play along in our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week...I know you are busy busy busy making your Easter projects so come show us what you are making :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'!
