Fancy Party Dress Celebrate

Do you ever play sketch challenges? I’m a huge fan; there is so much you can do with them compared to other challenges! And I always get a chance to use any new products I have!

These stamps and dies from Hero Arts were part of the April kit. I just love all of the mix and match clothes and accessories. I’d only played with a few of the stamps before and hadn’t actually made a card with them yet. The black cardstock frame was sprayed with a clear glitter mist. The white focal panel was inset into the frame. I die cut the left edge of the card so it would match my die cut border. This scrollwork border comes as part of a set with a plain border die and some other different borders. So it was easy to get the card edge to match. The card base is pink so I allowed a portion of it to show along the left edge. Last I added some details: flowers, sequins and gems along with some Wink of Stella on the top and skirt.

Come on over and play with us this week at Crazy 4 Challenges!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Crazy 4 Challenges Cards

I’m afraid I dropped the ball last week when it came to posting my card for Crazy 4 Challenges! I went to a Copic class Friday and Saturday. I had an amazing time; a huge Thank You and lots of Hugs to Cindy Lawrence! But I hadn’t slept well before and during so I was exhausted which made me forget to post! Sorry about that! So today I have both cards to show you!

First up, this week’s challenge which was to use green! I used Mint Julep with a vellum overlay for the leaves and aqua mist for the card base. The sentiment is a mix between Vintage Jadeite and Hawaiian Shores.

I tried adding some flowers but it just didn’t look right. Sometimes you need to know where to quit! The Nuvo drops are the loveliest pale aqua called Duck Egg Blue. So subtle but perfect for this soft card.

For last week’s challenge I made this card with No Line Colouring on it. I guess I had Copic on the brain before my course! Even better I was able to get an expert opinion from Cindy! Very helpful as I don’t do a lot of no line colouring. (A bit more shading on the left side of the coat and hat. The challenge was to make a Thank You card because it was Nurse’s Day, this month’s hostess is a nurse (so am I by the way), but I decided instead to make a nurse-themed card! I have way too many thank you cards in my stash already. It’s a good thing I make quite a few cards with no sentiment; so much more versatile that way.

This week is perfect for you to join our challenge right? The world is starting to get pretty green around here, finally, so make something green! Haul out those leaves, trees and froggies!
