I am excited to have been a winner and I'm also a huge fan of these adorable fun images, making it extra fun for me to try and play along each week. This week our challenge (#8), is an easy one too. All you need to do is create a project and include some type of 'Embossing'- it's your choice. You can heat emboss something for your project or dry emboss. For my card I decided to try emboss and I used my Cuttlebug today along with two different embossing folders to add some fun texture to the bright pink and orange section of my card.
My card was also created based on this week's wonderful Color Combo that were are using in Summer Card Camp and my goal this week is to try and make ALL my creations use these fun colors.
This is the card that I created for Bugaboo's Wacky Wednesday Challenge and my image is also one of my favorites from Bugaboo.
This is also the card that I am submitted to Summer Card Camp today!! I am having such a great time a camp and really love it. I also found out that two more friends are there, one is Trina who is one of the Designers at The Outlawz, and also my friend, Patricia from the Paper Temptress has also signed up and will also be in CAMP!! Yippee! She sent me an email last night and told me the good news after seeing one of my cards in the class gallery! I'm also a big fan of shopping at her store and that is why I buy my Copic Coloring Cardstock. My favorite, of course, is the Cryogen and I love the wonderful hint of iridescent shimmer, but I have to admit, I also also really like the Heavenly white for cardmaking and have also bought many other wonderful things from her store. If you are not familiar with it, be sure to stop by and check out her wonderful Ribbon too!!
I also have one more card today and this is another one that I was inspired to make by the wonderful colors we are using in Card Camp. It also features one of my new Hero Arts Stamps, which I first in Versamark, heat embossed in White and then used Distress Inks to color my flowers and added another hint of color using my Gelatos. My butterfly was also colored with distress inks and I actually made several in a variety of colors. I camp up with this idea after seeing THIS video Jennifer had done about coloring several all the the same time. She had colored them with Copics, which I have also tried, but you can do the same with Distress inks and it's even faster! I did stamp these in Black Staz-On, but for Copic coloring, you'll want to be sure to use Memento, or another Copic approved ink.
I am off now to work on another card and I'm going to try to see what I can do with the sketch, below that I have copied over to share from 'The Outlawz Challenge Group'.
Wednesday is Sketch Day at The Outlawz and I thought it would be fun to also play along using ideas and inspiration from our class! If you love challenges, then feel free to hop on over to 'The Outlawz' and join. It's a fun group -- open to all and offers a new challenge every day! Yippee!!
See you all a bit later! A special welcome to my new Cardmaking Summer Camp friends who have arrived her from Summer Camp. It's a great to have you visit and you are welcome to become a follower and come back any time!!
