Today my kids went back to school, so I took advantage of the morning hours to make some challenge cards. Hopefully I will be able to stay awake this afternoon to make my Color Dare Project for tomorrow's post! I haven't been sleeping well, so I tend to take naps. But that makes me not be able to sleep well, and it's just an unending circle. So I'm going to try to NOT take a nap today. We'll see how that goes.
This first card I made for the challenge at Inspired By using the Deconstructed Sketch:
I was inspired by the colors, textures, and layers in the photo, plus the pillow that the cat is sitting on! I tried to make this one masculine. It says simply "happy birthday" on the inside.
Cardstock: White Daisy, Slate, Whisper
Stamps: Cozy Cat, Just a Number
Ink: Memento (not CTMH)
Markers: Cotton Candy, Whisper
Other: Neutral Baker's Twine, Shimmer Brads, Christmas embossing folder (Cuttlebug, not CTMH), Durables Artisan Studs
This next card is for Pals Paper Arts and CAS(E) This Sketch.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but I embossed the cake with gold embossing powder. It really looks cool in person! The inside says "Old age isn't so bad... considering the alternative!"
Cardstock: Lagoon, White Daisy
Stamps: Just a Number, You Are My Happy
Ink: VersaMark, Black
Other: Gold Embossing Powder
This last one, I made a few week's ago. I was making it for these challenges:
Technique Time Tuesday
Word Art Wednesday
Pals Paper Arts Sketch
I ran out of time to upload it last week, so I'm late for most of these challenges. But I was inspired by the Bohemian floral pattern and the lace on the CASE Study cookies, so I used that pretty Florentine paper and some white lace.
Cardstock: Colonial White
Stamps WAW digital word art (not CTMH)
Other: lace from my stash (not CTMH), Base & Bling Floral accents
Technique: Faux Frame
