Hi all! Hope you've all had a terrific weekend. It's been snowy here, had a few inches the past several days. We had my friend's baby shower on Saturday and it was "duck themed". Turned out great. Will post pictures of the duck punch, centerpieces, and other decoration later. Made a few cards today...I have lots of Design Team projects in the works so it's always fun to fit in crafts just because I love the hobby.
First up is a card I made for Case Study:
This little card features Pop Tones and Papertrey Ink Cardstock. Ribbon is PTI. My pp is My Mind's Eye. Butterflies aer Jenni Bowlin and sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on. I really love playing along with Case Study, it's so challenging to take someone's card and make the design your own.
Up next, this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe:
Here's my card:
These colors are really beautiful together and not colors I use often. My cardstock and stamp is PTI. My patterned paper is PTI and My Mind's Eye. I finished my card off with Stickles, of course. I wasn't sure where to add my sentiment and I've found "when it doubt, add a tag"...you can stick a tag sentiment anywhere and it looks good.
And my last card is for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge - add a scallop. This is by far the hardest challenge I play along with because my style is not clean and simple....I say "the more the merrier" and could layer and embellish till the cows come home. That's what makes this challenge fun for me, I've gotta get out of my comfort zone:
And my card:
Is there anything better than chicken stamps??? Not for this farm girl. My stamps are Taylored Expressions. Cardstock is Pop Tones. Patterned Paper is MME. I colored my images with Copics and added Stickles and Liquid Pearl. I also used my Fiskars scallop punch.
I want to remind everyone that Practical Scrappers is having a Layout Contest. We'd love for you to stop by and vote for your favorites!
