Stamp TV Challenges

It is nice to have an open day this week, it gave me time to play in a couple of the Stamp TV challenges!  Gosh it has been months since I played in those challenges!

First up is the Monday Challenge; Distressing on your card, with a tag

I went basic with the distressing -- just used my Tim Holtz distresser on the edges.


 This is another card for my husband - I still can't believe he will be 65. Where have the years gone.... so fast!] The HB is from GKD Pleasant Plurals, and my numbers are from Papertrey By the Numbers dies.


The second challenge is one of my favorite STV challenges;  Cat's CASE the DT.  This week is Jimmi Mayo.  I chose this card of Jimmi's








I basically chose this for the paper usage. Gina K Designs now has in-house made designer paper. The selection is very good, with more coming every month!
I love the way this paper mixes so well,  Really does take the challenge out of figuring it out.  That is something that I struggle with.  I used the beautiful GKD stamps from Enjoy the Sunshine.

That's it for my Thursday spot.  Thanks for stopping by~

These are fab cards Vicki but I particularly like the first with the strong red against the kraft. Love the background stamping too.
