I have always wondered how people find multiple challenges that one card can fit into. Well I have found 5 that worked for me this week. First to be listed is the Make It Monday #113 Challenge. The design or sketch for this card came from Sketch Saturday #231. The colors for this card came from the picture inspiration at Just Us Girls #160. The challenge a Casual Friday #76 was use craft colored cardstock. Finally the challenge at Do You Stack Up #95 was to use wet or dry embossing. I also scored 3 lines above my sentiment. So the colors of orange, green and brown came from the color challenge. I saw an awsome idea on Techno Stamper of embossing on craft colored cardstock and then picking up color from a marker with a waterpen and painting the image. And last but not least that is where the white embossing on the craft paper came in. I did stamp a leaf on the orange background with bronze metallic ink. I also used a little bit of distress ink to highlight the edge of this card.
This is a project I made for a girl at work. It is from Technique Junkies and is called Double Tea Bag Holder. This is just a perfect little gift for someone that likes tea. The challenge at Quirky Crafts was anything but a card in fall colors.
This is a card I made for a swap on Technique Junkies. The technique is called Cut Circle Sentiments. I do a lot of my cards in shades of green and tried to step a bit out of my box. The rust and blue worked well together. This is my entry for Make it Monday this week.
I just love techniques and I saw this one on Stamp TV. It is called Pillow Ticking. You score the cardstock at every 1/2 inch and then you take the score pal and make the dotted line in the middle of every score line. It has that old fashioned pillow look. So easy, but I liked the look.All the cardstock used in this card come from Paper Temptress. The base of this card is Golden Green Basis. The next layer is the Olive Basis. The dark pink layer is Azalea Mica Metallic. All the white is the Cryogen White. The azalea and the olive are perfect for this technique because they are nice and thick and holes are not made in the cardstock. The image and the saying are from DRS Designs. I just thought this saying was so funny. Thought this could also be my entry for Make it Monday.
The challenge at CAS-ual Friday this week was to make a card that reflects your blog header. My blog header says Vickie's Addiction. Well I love dies,embossing folders and punches, so that is what I used on my card. The flower was made with a Spellbinders die. The embossing folder is from Stampin' Up. I used a punch to punch out the sentiment.
