Whenever I've had a few minutes, I've peeked at your amazing creations. Sorry I haven't left comments, but today is really the first day I've been able to catch my breath. I promise to get back to commenting again ASAP.
And I have a card or three coming up. I've found a couple of new challenges, and thought I might give them a try! The first one is ShowCase Your Style, and they're on challenge #3. Killer DT, and a really fun inspiration photo; you've got to go and check it out. The second new-to-me challenge is Challenge Up Your Life. Another great DT, and their challenges run two weeks, giving us all plenty of time to play. I'd like to encourage you all to pop over and play along - who doesn't love a good challenge?! One of my cards will be doubled up and will also go into Less Is More. They're celebrating their 200th challenge, so why not play along over there too! Just make a 'celebratory' card.
First up will be the card for SCYS.
Using a Michael's white base, I stamped a snowflake background in red VersaColor. Cut three panels with MFT's pierced rectangles in red, green, and white scraps. The stamps are from EH (love them), and colored the bulbs with Copics. Although you can't see it, I've added GA on each of the bulbs. The green CS looks a little weird, but it's really complimentary - just doesn't photograph well... EZPZ.
This card started out differently. It took a while for Mr. Mojo to get his act together. Hmmmmm... I wonder if Mr. Mojo was out in California visiting with Darnell's Hammie while I was out of the loop.... Wouldn't be surprised one little bit. Anyway.... I like the simplicity of this card. One stamp, one die, two colors. The turquoise shapes are from AE, with some Pebbles pearls. A stamp from PTI with Potting Soil ink from Ranger. The turquoise and brown strip are scraps. Wish you could see it in real life...
And then I thought, "What the heck." I'm throwing my hat into the ring for the DT Call over at Muse. I love playing there, so why not?! And I happen to think the card I made (while I was with the BABES) fits the criteria. I. Like. It. More importantly, my 8-year old grandson Carter liked it, "best of all the cards I see in your craftroom, grammy!" And without further ado...
The stamps are from EH. I added some GA on Santa's shades. Black VersaFine ink. Michael's white, and a red scrap of CS.
With that, I'll quit. It's good to be back. I've missed you all...Happy dances everyone!!
