I have two new cards to share today and both were created with some new challenges in mind. The first card is for a few different challenges and the design was based on this week's sketch over at the Stars and Stamps Blog. This week we are working with Sketch #93, which I copied over to share with you:
My card is a happy little boy card that will be fun for a Soldier to send home to his/her son. I started with one of my older pre-colored digis. I tend to color often when I'm not feeling so great and then put the images away for cards at a later time. This little cutie is from Bugaboo and was colored with Copics. I also used scraps from my Recycle bin to create the blue checkered border and and the mats for my image. Once I had the card done, I tied on two red sparkling buttons with blue/white baker's twine!!
This card is being submitted to each of these challenges:
- OWH - Stars & Stamps Blog - Sunday Sketch Challenge
- The Outlawz - Greeting Card Monday Challenge - Recycle/Sentiment
- Make it Monday Challenge - Always Anything Goes
- Color Me Creative Classroom - Copics Only - Boys Boys Boys!!
And my next card was actually one that I finished up yesterday, after I had done by post. It's was a fun Winter/ Christmas themed card and was inspired by a variety of new challenges. I started this card by picking out a snowflake embossing folder to emboss the front on my card in a snowflake theme. Once I had the card embossed, I took some Star Dust Stickles and dabbed them all over the front of the card to add some sparkle and shin. While that was drying, I used one of my Memory Box dies to cut my snowflake, which I then layered over a light blue flower and embellished with tiny blue pearls. I tied on a matching button, added some blue ribbon and my card was done!! Fun and Easy!!
This card is being submitted to these new challenges, and like those above - everyone is welcome to play:
- The Outlawz - Sunday CAS Challenge - Think Pink or Anything Goes
- Christmas Inspirations - Christmas using Die Cuts or Punches
- Lily Pad Challenge - Texture Challenge
- Sunday CAS Challenge - CAS and Anything with Flowers
- Simon Says Stamp - October Challenge - Anything Goes
And now I'm off to play a bit more with my Cameo and then have an early supper! I want to have that all done before the trick-or-treaters start visiting. I hope they all come pretty early and hope we don't end up with lots of left over candy. It's too much temptation to have it here laying around. Luckily, I don't really like most of what Hubby bought, which is great, because I don't want to be eating it! :)
Wishing you all a nice night and for those of you who are celebrating -- Happy Halloween!! Hoping every one stays safe and has FUN!
