This is going to be a long post again - got three cards to show you!!
First up is
STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND - TAG IT.
The challenge is obviously to incorporate a tag into your project, easy-peasy!!
Our sponsor this week is Meljens who also kindly gave us the images to use. Aren't those kitties adorable - I'd take them any day. If my dog wasn't cat-eating kind, that is. lol
The flowers on card are also from Meljens - they're called Flower Layers and you get loads of flower shapes and leaves you can paper piece or colour. They're only available since yesterday at Whimsy Stamps. I paper pieced mine and shaped with embossing tool. Left them quite plain because I liked the homespun feel of the card.
Just a message to anybody who wants to order something from Whimsy Stamps - their website is experiencing some MAJOR technical issues and if you want to order something and know what it is, you can just email Denise with your wish and she will issue a Paypal invoice.
Prismas. I've been admiring gorgeous cards by Dorcas and Tara and it really has made me want to play with my pencils more. Those cute soft "cosy housewife" sort of papers are from Fancy Pants.
Pixie Dust Studio - animals
Some Odd Girl (2 weeks) - 3 or more images
Scrappy Frog (3 weeks) - flower power
Totally Gorjuss - flowers
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Next card is for
STAMP SOMETHING - DIGI DAY
Any project involving a digital stamp goes!
We have lots of different digi companies sponsoring - I got this cute image to work with from Wink Wink Ink. It came with several sentiments besides the one I used. I thought it would be fun to really make things fuzzy so dug into my forgotten stash of fibres and roughed up the papers. Lemme tell you, sewing with furry fibre is A MAJOR PAIN IN BUTT. There. I said it.
Prismas (told ya - playing!) and made the vintagey lopsided flower from lace and Papermania brad. Leaves are made of satin ribbon. The papers are from Jillybean Soup.
ABC Challenge (2 weeks) - D is for Distressing
Wild Flower Patch - stripes
Ooh La La Creations (2 weeks) - stripes
Shabby Tea Room - inspired by nature and/or using the color green
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - faux or real stitching
Andrea's Stampin' Moments - thinking of you
Paper Playtime - if the shoe fits, buy one in every color (variety)
And the last but not least
PHINDY'S CHALLENGE - CHRISTMAS CARD FOR OWH
Now, another card for OWH. At least this time I knew what A2 card is. You can find some guidelines for making a card for Operation Write Home HERE.
The papers are from SEI and October Afternoon, I edged everything with silver leafing pen to keep the card reasonably flat but still define the layers. Green strip was put through the paper crimper and then accented with leafing pen again.
Copics for this card, I'll need more practice to colour hoomans (and fairies) properly with Prismas.
Boots, tights, hair: E39/37/35/34/33/31
hat, jacket: E79/74/71/70
Cat: T3/T1, 0
