SCS Mix521 and FS833 plus 1

OKAY! I did it!  I played in every daily challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers!  Today finishes off the week, and starts another one.

I finished off the week by joining in at MIX51- Hearts.  This is a new challenge for me. I do like doing mixed media - I just don't do it very often.  But yesterday - yep!

[I am hoping ATC's qualify for this challenge].  I started with a 3.5 x 2.5 card panel, embossed with a heart embossing folder, and sponged over the top for added color.  I used a couple of unbranded dies for layering, cut out a sentiment strip (computer generated), and I stamped some faux stitching.

For the last step, I covered the bigger hearts with Diamond Glaze for a glossy effect.  I'm also entering this into another new challenge for me [in blogland], ATC Around the World #97; Anything Goes.  This is a German monthly challenge that I hope to join in every month.  I love making ATC's!


Now, to start the week off, I joined in the Featured Stamper 833; MelissaS. I CASED this card.

I liked the mixed media feel of her card, so I kept that theme.  I used a different embossing folder and stamp images, but basically kept the same layout.

My sentiment is a discontinued STAMPlorations stamp.  Makes for an encouraging card.

I had a lot of fun this past week creating a card on a daily basis. It was validating to see that my card HERE had a dual Favorite!  So fun.
