Sneak Peek and TWO Challenge Cards


This sweet buggy is one of the images in Jami Bova's Precious Bundles set. Each time I use this set I love it more and more. The new stamps will be released on 2RedBananas tomorrow :) It's a great set!!

This card also fits 2 challenges on SCS! So unlike me to combine challenges, so I'm excited :)

Stamps: Precious Bundles - 2RedBananas
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Paper: SU and Bo-Bunny
Other: Nesties, Inkssentials white pen, brads, pop-dots, cuttlebug embossing folder, twine

This second card uses a brayering technique on glossy paper. You stamp with versamark ink onto glossy paper, then heat emboss with white embossing powder. Brayer over the panel with Kaleidocolor ink, I used Carribean Sea colors and then just wipe with a paper towel to get the ink off of the embossed images. This card fits two different SCS challenges :) This one also uses the July 2009 House Mouse stamps of the month. You can find them here.
Stamps: House Mouse, flourish from Autumn Leaves
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, chalk ink French Blue, Versamark
Paper: Bazzill, glossy cardstock
Other: white embossing powder, glitter, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, May Arts ribbon, brad, pop-dots

Our quote for the day:
"My basic principle is that you don't make decisions
because they are easy;
you don't make them because they are cheap;
you don't make them because they're popular;
you make them because they're right."

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great evening!
