There's been a few challenges that I wanted to enter and I made some cards today for them.
Muse challenge #24 had this card as the inspiration:
The green and black color combo was interesting to me and I used Cupcake party stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for my card. I used the woodgrain embossed paper, which is hard to see in the picture:
My next card uses this sketch from Unscripted Sketches
I used the same stamp set and papers from the July Simon Says Stamp kit. I didn't follow the sketch exactly, but I was happy with the results.
My last card is a Christmas one, which I'm submitting to the Merry Monday July Challenge. Last year was my first full year making cards for Operation Write Home and I started on my holiday cards too late. Now I know to get started earlier!
I think this card used every tool I have! The doll is from the Going Places cricut cartridge, which I edged with Tea Dye distress ink. I punched snowflakes and her wreath from the Martha Stewart leaf punch. I used an Inktense pencil to color her hair and glued things down with Glossy Accents.
I created the faux stitching along the edge with my Signo white pen. This qualifies the card for this month's ODBD challenge for Operation Write Home.
It's been so rainy here in South Carolina that this was a good day to craft indoors.
Thanks for stopping by.
