Sharing some cards

Last week, Paper Anthology held out first virtual crop:  Creation Staycation.  It was a week long event, with tons of challenges, trivia and Prizes.  I’m excited to say, it was a huge success, with over 300 challenge entries!  We had such a blast looking through everyone’s gorgeous creation! I thought I would share a few of my cards from the challenges:

This card was for the Monochrome Madness challenge.  Of course, I chose GREEN.  All dies used are from Dress My Crafts:


 

This card was for the Distress background challenge.  Lots of inky goodness with Ranger Distress inks and a fun flower die set from Taylored Expressions:

 

This card was for the one layer (CAS) challenge.  I used the Taylored Expressions square stencils for the background.  The beautiful flower image is from Penny Black .  All inks used, for blending and watercoloring are mini ink cubes from Taylored Expressions:

 

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Make and Take Sunday!

This month’s Make and Take features a gorgeous Penny Black image and Studio 490 sentiment.  A simple card made by applying Tombow markers direct to the stamp.  A spritz of water and voila,  a beautiful, soft, watercolor floral.  You can’t tell in the photo, but the flowers shimmer and sparkle with a light touch of stickles;

Christmas in July!

Christmas in July is the new challenge at Shopping our Stash!   Just perfect for me…I had to come up with a card quick for this month’s Christmas Card Club.  I really wanted to play with the new Hero Arts set that came in from the ShopBox as I’ve been all about Scandinavian prints lately, and I really wanted to break out some embossing powders.  I embraced my love of green and came up with this:

 

Background stamp is from Studio 490, inks are from Catherine Pooler and embossing powders are from Ranger.   A touch of Antique linen and Tea dye to grunge it up and finish it off!

 

Thanks for stopping by!
