DRS & SCS Color Challenge

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR CONGRATS ON MY EXCITING NEWS~~ They meant the world to me!!


I got an offer the other week to pick out 3 stamps and design a card for D-R-S Designs Stamps.  Well, of course I had to play!  I really liked this saying - I saw it a couple of weeks ago on SCS - I love foliage type stamps and the rain just went with the saying!  That was my 3 and this is the card I created.  I enjoyed making it.  They (DRS) sent me unmounted stamps - I used some Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over (Michaels) and wala my stamps were ready to use.  There is a contest of the participants we shall see what happens.  Paper is Gina K Designs, and the beautiful lace is from Mark's Finest Papers.




This card is for the SCS Color Challenge sample.  Betty chose Baja Blue, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizazz.  I questioned these, but after my card was done, these look good together!  Dessert was to incorporate a banner on your card.  I made my banners with a square punch.  Stamps are PTI and the swirl is from Michaels.  [I threw the packaging away and I have NO IDEA who made them - oops.] I also would like you all to notice that I (!) actually did real SEWING and even got a straight line of it!!  Now that people, is a REAL MILESTONE for this girl... Yep - sewing and Vicki..not so much! I have to say it was fun -- I will try this again - maybe even around an entire card~ lol

Feel free to come on over and play - we love to see your creations.
Thanks for stopping by ~~

Vicki, when I saw your card for the CC it was then I realized that I totally forgot dessert! What? I really heart this look and the way you made them "homemade" so to speak. The sentiment reminds me that I really need to get this set. The top card is lovely, too! Great sentiment and color with texture! Awesome cards!

Utterly stunning cards, Vicki. I love the embossing on the first one and the pretty lace, and the banners and layout of the second are beautiful. Love the sewing too!!
