Different Challenges on a Saturday

This is for the color challenge over at Stamp TV.  Red, White and Black - really can't go wrong with these classic colors!  I used Hopeful Hearts and the sentiment is from Block Greetings, both illustrated by Tami Mayberry.  Paper is Red Hot.


 This is for the One Layer Wednesday Challenge over at Jennifer's blog this week.  She had a triangle sketch that was fun.  However, I think I needed a longer leaf image.  I will ask my expert Susan for advise on that.  I tell you what that girl can balance out a crooked street!  I love being able to ask fellow creators how to improve on my cards!  I used the Verve images from Dream Big.  I have been seeing this masking technique on cards, and I just love it!  I took a 4.25 x 4.25 chipboard and cut out the rectangle (with nesties - I can not use a cutter - being a lefty the blade isn't at the correct angle), laid it on my card and sponged. I love the framing effect this gives.  I will keep the template for future uses.


This card is for the JUGS Challenge 69 - Wild Card; A self made flower.  I made a Fan Fold Flower  Oh my let me tell you what - I SO STRUGGLED making these puppies!  I would get them pushed down and it would come unstuck -- so I must have tried 5 times!!  FINALLY had success - for the photo anyway.  It came apart AGAIN as I went to put it in my stash!  Sheez.  I really think these are fun, I just wish they were easier for me to create.  As far as mailing--- well, not so much, in a box maybe, with no envie :). I used Verve stamps, Heart to Heart.


And this last card is for Crazy 4 Challenges - Shabby Chic.  I don't do these cards enough.  They are just so stunningly girly - ya know.  All the layers and BLING oh yeah - fun card to make.  However, I must say, they do take time! This took me about an hour to make.  I haven't spent that long creating a card in months!  It was fun, and I have to say, I do like the end result.  I used the sentiment from Verve One Person.  Lace is from MFP, papers (aqua mist) are from PTI along with the button.


Thanks so much for stopping in -- I was very busy playing I hope you enjoyed all the eye candy!  Have a great week end -- I'll be back again tomorrow!
