Some More Challenges

I am trying to involve myself more in challenges - 1, it challenges me, and 2, I get to use other companies stuff that is collecting dust in my stamp room! ;)

So, for today, I am joining in at CAS Mix Up October Challenge; layering stencils.

For my card, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil that I have (had like forever!)  I covered this stencil, with a stencil that Loll gave me over a year ago [probably 2, as fast as time goes], to do the layering stencil technique. I then used stitched rectangles dies for my framework.  I like the way that this card stays CAS, but has a little pop with the framing.  Still qualifies for the challenge too!
I went on to create a very easy card for a new to me challenge; If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #79; photo inspiration, along with the October Craft Stamper Magazine Take It, Make It; anything goes.

Let's start with the fun cookie photo;

And, my card:
I was inspired by the colors, and the spider.  I stamped the background dots with PTI Polka Dots Basic 2, and, the web and spider are stickers I had.  A fun card, that was so easy to make :).

That's it for my Monday -- thanks challenges - it was fun!

Thanks for stopping by~

Wow is that heart beautifully done!! And I'm smitten with the orange polka dots even if there is a big ol' spider dangling on them!!

Love the bright colours you've used for your layered stenciling of heart and leaves, Vicki! And I love the white happy with the black outline ... really pops. Great design, my friend. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
