After coming home, I had to make a fast round trip up north. Long drive, short stay, another long drive. Made it though. Had great company along, and hours upon hours of great conversation with my sister Sue. The trip went smoothly and quickly. And since I hadn't had time to
There are three cards that will be going into multiple challenges, so if you want to bail now, I'll see you later. This first card will visit three challenges: CAS(e) This Sketch, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, and also into the Lawnscaping Challenge.
A blingy shaker tag card. Here are the deets: Neenah white base and tag, SC sequins, MS glitter, a scrap of striped dp, a scrap of pink cardstock, MFT "happy" die, PTI "birthday" die, LF tag and star die. LF star stamp, Studio G green ink, a leftover bit of pink ribbon and some green floss.
Card number two fits into The Card Concept challenge, and I worked it into Muse as well. I'd call this card Clean and Layered, as it's not quite CAS. I was inspired by the overall layout created by Vicki Dutcher, especially the chevrons, white space and left-sided focal point.
Pretty easy to make. Except for the Neenah white base, the cardstock bits are all scraps. A smattering of SC star sequins, Studio G ink (love the way the ink smeared unevenly on the stamps), CTMH stamps, TE polaroid die, and my MFT chevron dies.
And I promise, truly I do, that this is the last card and final challenge of the day. I've wanted to play along at Curtain Call for some time now, but haven't had the opportunity. Today changes that! Yippee!
For this, I used my new Gina K. stamps and cut files (for my Silhouette). I used a scrap of peach paper, and stamped them with Versa Color Sand Beige, and marked up the centers with my white pen. I also added some depth with a Copic marker. The sentiment is from PTI, and I added a bit of lace and a peach-colored pearly thing I have had laying around for some time. The stitched frame is from Mama Elephant. I inked the edges of the larger panel in the same Sand Beige. And as promised; done. Happy dances everyone!
