Well it looks like I neglected this blog all week!! Today I can show you these two cards that I have over on Simply Scrapping Crafts. My first two cards as Design Team!! How fun is that. These are great challenges and you still have time to play.
The first is a color challenge in the card challenge group. I used PTI cardstock, ribbon and butterfly die. GCD paper for the light pink, Crate paper for the green, Spellbinders die, Webster Pages AWESOME ribbon flower and (gasp) not a Unity stamp on this one!! But no worries I have lots of other Unity cards!!
My second card is for the Technique Challenge Group - to Distress!! I used lots of distressing techniques!! The stamp is from Unity's Donna Downey Insightful Meadow. I stamped it on the green paper (from Kaiser Craft) then I masked the image and sprayed it with Shimmerz Spritz in Mudpie. The I took the mask off and gave it a few more sprays. I used Tim Holtz Distress Stickles to add some sparkle to the top of the wildflower. Then I distressed the edges and used some Tim Holtz Distress ink. I stamped the Ippity sentiment on a tag from the same Kaiser Craft 6 x 6 pad - inked up those edges - added some stitching and some ribbon - then put it on the card base (which I sanded first) from the Core'dinations Cosmo Cricket embossed pad!!
Card 3 is my 3-D flower card for the Ippity Challenge this week. Paper is Bazzill and Crate Paper; Stamps are from Devoted and Where You Should be Ippity sets; the flower is Prima Sprites.
Card 4 is for one of the Unity Anniversary Challenges which was to use trees or birds (mine has both!!). Paper is Cosmo Cricket and Core'dinations.
