...Sketch Challenge #183, Ways To Use It Challenge #173, Kristina's Color Challenge #14, & A Winner !!!


This is my submission for yesterday's Sketch Challenge at SCS, and Kristina's Color Inspiration #14 Challenge . I started with a Kraft Cardstock (Layer 1) card base (6-5/8 X 6-1/2), and when it was folded in half it measured 6-5/8 X 3-1/4. All of the images are from SU's Level Two Hostess Set "Spring Solitude". Basic Black Cardstock (Layer 3 : 4-1/4 X 3-1/8) was stamped with the flower trio stamp in Whisper White Craft Ink, and was embossed with Stampendous White Embossing Powder. A piece of Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the center of the panel, and the completed panel was attached to the card base using Dimensionals. A piece of Whisper White Cardstock (Layer 2 : 2-1/2 X 1-7/8) was added beside the black panel, and was attached to the card base using SNAIL Adhesive. The focal panel (Layer 4) consisted of Basic Black Cardstock (4-3/16 X 2-3/16), Kraft Cardstock (4-1/16 X 2-1/16), and Whisper White Cardstock (4 X 2). The branch and bird images were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto the white panel using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for placement. The bird was stamped again onto a scrap piece of white paper, cut out using CutterBee Scissors, and placed over the black bird using a Dimensional. The sentiment was stamped twice: once in Real Red Classic Ink onto white cardstock, and again in black on Real Red Cardstock. The red "thank" was punched out using the Small Oval Punch, and was matted onto black cardstock that was punched out with the Large Oval Punch. The black "you" was cut down using a Paper Cutter, and was attached to the ovals using SNAIL Adhesive. Black Brads were added below layer two and to the sentiment panel to finish off the card.

This is my submission for today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS. We were to score our creations in some way, so I scored the Old Olive Cardstock card base (8-1/2 X 5-1/2) under the sentiment panel. The sentiment panel consisted of Whisper White Cardstock (4-1/4 X 2-1/4), Bravo Burgundy Cardstock (4-1/4 X 5/16), and a piece of designer paper from BasicGrey's Figgy 6X6 Paper Pad (4-1/4 X 1-1/2). The sentiment was from the set "Hugs & Wishes", and was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for placement. The layers were attached to the white cardstock with SNAIL Adhesive, and the completed panel was attached to the card base using Dimensionals. A piece of Teal 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon was added to the panel, and three Black Brads were placed above the panel using a Mat Pack (for placement) and Paper Piercer to finish off the card.Now on to the winner of the blog candy! My husband chose #52 .................... Janet Beahm (harley7312)!

This absolutely cracks me up! I just met Janet last month at a "Scrampin' Event" in my area, and I knew instantly that we would be good friends! She was also a guest at Pam Varnell's last weekend for our stampin' extravaganza, so I got to spend some quality time with her. Congrats, Janet....you owe my hubby one!!!! LOL! Shoot me an email to let me know when and where you want to meet to get your goodies. Thanks to everyone who left comments and entered to win. I have made some wonderful friends online, and I appreciate your faithful readership. It's because of all of you that I can celebrate these wonderful milestones. {{{{BIG CYBER HUGS}}}}

That's it for today! I will see you all again tomorrow with another creation of some sort. Until then.......
