Just because...

Howdy Ya'll! Boy, I've been busy lately, getting ready for the Gina K release that starts this Monday and forgot to post a few challenge cards I have done over on SCS! I always love the Inspiration Challenge on Saturdays and this is from LAST Saturday...This was my inspiration:

Poster Cabaret

And my card:



I LOVE how this turned out! And really a quick and CAS card. The only stamping on it is the sentiment, all the other is a flower punch cut out and hand drawn!

Combining some STV challenges...

Howdy all! I decided to play along in this week's challenges on StampTV ... the color challenge (red, black, and chartreuse) and the sketch challenge, both fun ones! Here is what I ended up with:




I dont really care that much for my card though, lol! I have discovered I have NO black ribbon..nada...none! And the red and green colors in ribbon that I have clashed too much for me...sooooo, used the black and white checked and I think that is what is bugging me, lol! It just 'fit'...Anyways....The little birdy is one I just quickly hand drew then cut out...at least you CAN tell its a bird..right? LOL!

Well, off to do more cleaning in my stamp room...that always inspires me!:D Poor hubby ...I jinxed him, told him he needed to get more OT with the holidays coming up...last night he worked until 4:30am...and then they were waking him up at 6:30am with another bad water leak...so he says its my fault...LOL!

Gina K Design Illustrators/Design Team Blog Hop for October!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our challenge and hop for this month! For this month, we were to use a favorite background technique that Gina has done a video on...and chose this one:




This is such a fun one! This is my creation with using this technique:



I added a bit of distressing too on mine. The red ribbon you see is some I hand dyed....After seeing Nina's gorgeous ribbon she did, I wanted to try doing some. (I dyed 3 different colors, but this is the only one that survived the stray kitty burglar that stole them off my back deck as they were drying, lol!!) Well, I did not use the same kind of bias tape she used apparently, lol! I love how hers is more 'gauzy' looking than mine, but this had a distressed look to it, on the folded part, so decided to use it on this creation...I also stiffened the twine a bit and made it all wrinkly/curly....I kinda like how it turned out, sorta growing on me, haha! If you want to know how I dyed mine, or curled the twine, you can email me and I will get all the details to you! Ok, ready for more fun inspiration?
