The first one was created for the coffee, tea, or favorite hot drink category. I just love flavored creamers in my coffee or lattes, so I thought this worked pretty well. I also tried a techniques challenge of using a pretty napkin (supposed to be ironed on piece of waxed freezer paper, but I didn't have any and wax paper itself didn't work -- so I just modge podged mine fast to a piece of white cs then cut carefully).
The next one was to CASE the featured stamper. Well . . . the featured stamper is my good friend, Jessica (Jlazarski), so I had trouble choosing my FAVE from her gallery. Then after I did choose one I duplicated it twice as you can see in the butterfly card and house mouse card shown here. The colors are rose red on one and purely pomegranate on the other, then groovy guava, and river rock.
The next one was for the "Latest dirt challenge," and we could take it literally and create a type of dirt image card or my take was "dishin' the dirt" with a friend at the coffee shop. I have quite a few of these bella images from last year that I still haven't used up.
This next one, I believe, is a Karen Lockhart stamp, and the challenge was to make is sparkly (lots of bling), so I thought of frosty snowmen glistening in the sun. This is being sent out tomorrow to one of my lucky SBS sisters. I sure hope she likes it. The bg is white glossy cs stamped with the snowflake and swirls bg stamp, then white embossed, and then sponged with different blue inks. This was layered on white and ballet blue, then not quite navy. The snowman was colored with my Bic Mark-Its then glittered up with Stardust stickles, as was the tag after it was stamped with Let it Snow (great impressions stamp) in Not Quite Navy and sponged with the ballet blue
The last two are one of my favorite stamp collections from Stampabilities (House Mouse). The pumpkin pie one is layered on chocolate chip and black pieces of scrap with an old sheet of SU pumpkin dp in the background. Details from the last card are mentioned above with the butterfly one. Hope you enjoyed all the pictures! :)
Happy Stampin N Scrappin!!
