First up is Challenge#1 being hosted by Jenn of Paper Expressions. Her challenge is to create a card with scripture as the sentiment. The twist is to let the sentiment be the focus of your card. The scripture I used is by SNSS and I layered it with some Webster's and SU! dsp, ribbon, twine, a button and SB square and scalloped dies for cutting. I added some white gel pen accents on the scalloped punched border. The cocoa-colored cardstock is by the Paper Co.
ScrappinAbby where she's hosting challenge #2 to make an all-occasion card using only black & white colors. The twist is to use ribbon or twine, keeping with the black & white color theme.
I used a sentiment from the SNSS Your Friendship stamp set, stamping in black and cutting with the SB labels 4 dies. I outlined the larger one with a white gel pen and added some black gems from Pizzazz Aplenty. The ef is Powdered Sugar by Sizzix and the ribbon was in my stash. I made the bow using the bow-easy.
Sassy's challenge #8 to use the photo for inspiration that she has posted on her blog. The twist is to include the following elements:
- a stamped, colored image
- a sentiment must be on the front
- a die cut
The image is from the SNSS Poppies & Greetings clear stamp set, and I colored it with Copics. The sentiment is also by SNSS, and the die cut is a SNSS scalloped ribbon border die that I wove some white satin ribbon through. The embossing was done with a SU! square lattice ef, and the colors are forest green and berry sorbet.
This card was done for Theresa's challenge #10 to create an anything goes card using a die cut. I used an older CB ef, splitting it to leave a space for the ribbon. The butterfly is a Memory Box die cut that I cut from pink cardstock, and the black gems are from Pizzazz Aplenty. The sentiment was done with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Whew! I've been on a card-making roll for the past day or so, and I still have more to finish and post before the day is over!
Thanks for hanging with me for this long post. I hope you're getting some cards done for your stash too!
