Fun Challenges

I took some time to play in a few more challenges in blogland today.

I am starting with PTI's Make It Monday #238 - Valentine ombre stamping , and also entered this in the Lawnscaping Challenge #123; sending love, use a heart,  AAA Challenge #57; love me like you do, and lastly Dies R Us Challenge #42; love

I used PTI Polka Dot Basics II, along with the adorable Lawn Fawn Love You Tons.


I also saw a fun technique over Happy Little Stampers February - CAS Challenge; coloring with an embossing folder. I had to try this!  I included this card over at the One Layer Simplicity Challenge #24; friend, also.

I thought this technique would be so easy -- HA!  Not so much.  I went through 3 card bases before I was happy with the outcome.  Sheesh!  My sentiment is from Hero Arts, Friends.

Another fun day playing in challenges!  Thanks all~


Thanks for stopping by~

Your 'love' card is adorable! Great design Vicki! And great job with the embossing folder technique. I have found it easier to lay the card stock onto the inked and spritzed embossing folder and press, rather than turn the wet folder over and stamp with it. Maybe see if that works better for you. xx

Your little ellie nestled on the big ol' heart is darling! And how cool is your inked embossing folder card! I'm going to have to bring out the water-colours after all (I've down-sized my choices immensely, having given them to my niece for Christmas). Smiling at your duo of delights...
