Hello all! I took the entire morning and played with my stamps and paper! I tackled a number of challenges and want to tell you about them.
Citrus Card: Flourishes Timelss Tuesday Challenge 52C and Card Positioning Systems152. The Fourishes challenge is to make a birthday card using fruit or citrus colors. CPS is a sketch challenge. The card base is Cameo Coral by Stampin' Up and I used 12x12 paper that had no info. Stamps are Stampin' Up, Tart and Tangy. Sentiment is computer generated. Birthday greeting are inside.
Get Well Deer: Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 52E (use same link as card above)and Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends Weekly Color Challenge. The Flourishes challenge was to "Frame it Up!" and the Color challenge was to use Brown and White. The paper I used is Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury Base Weight White for the card base, and Sizzix Little Sizzles Hombre Texture Pad. The frame is from Pam Lefors Design and the stamps are Stampin Up's Natures Silhouettes and Gina K. Design's Say It With Flowers, Melanie Muenchinger, illustrator.
Fairy Bear: Teddy Stampers challenge was to used dry embossing on your card, along with a teddy bear image. I used Stamping Up's Perfect Plum for my card base and Pale Plum which I embossed with Cuttlebug's D'Vine Swirl. The fairy bear is a digi image and I cannot locate where I found it; the same for the pretty little circle with border behind the bear. If you know the designers of these pieces of art, please let me know so that I can give credit. I added a bow at the bottom to finish it off!
Well, I had a blast this morning but now must get to chores. Maybe I can get back to the fun stuff this evening!!
