In case you didn't notice, I have items for sale or give away. Check the tabs under my header. New items will be added, so check back often.
Clouds this morning, so we did a bit of yard work. I need a break before tackling my abundant apples, so I'm sharing 3 cards.
First is the card I entered via Flickr at the very last minute for the Impression Obsession Christmas in July challenge. Would you believe, Mr Random picked it?!
I love the IO evergreen dies & this time I cut the largest one from adhesive backed fun foam & added silver foil. The background was made by blending DO lucky clover & faded jeans which I splattered with water. The IO sentiment was stamped multiple times in faded jeans--thank goodness for a stamping platform!
Next up is my second BD card entered for SSS Flickr challenge 103. Unfortunately, Mr Random didn't find it, but it's one I'll definitely be sending to someone.
I first sponged a white panel with DO faded jeans & broken china. Then I layed down the SSS Heart Mandala stencil in the lower right corner & sponged on the same inks. I spritzed heavily with Shimmer Spritz--so pretty in person! SSS Painted Happy Birthday was stacked 2 high, brushed with Wink of Stella & covered in Nuvo Glaze. Love using little alpha stickers & finished off with white Nuvo drops. I'm entering CropStop, SSS Monday & WAW.
Last is my entry for PTI CAWU. There are several DT cards I plan to case. However, for the challenge I chose Dawn's card which made me say "wow" as soon as I saw it! It's not something I would likely have come up with on my own, but boy did I have fun making this card. The new circle die (which I ordered) reminded me of the Cutaway Tags: Spring Die that hasn't gotten much use yet. I used Dawn's colors of Ripe Avocado, Tropical Teal, Melon Berry, Saffron Spice & Classic Kraft. I accidentally substituted Hawaiian Shores for the Aqua Mist & my stamping was done on Vintage Cream instead of Rustic Cream.
The stamp sets are Splits: Just a Note, Twig Wreath, Quilted Summer & Garden Gild. I used a Verve die for the scalloped bottom & tied in the cream with little cream colored irridescent gems--so pretty. Now I want to make another one using Aqua Mist! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
