Since today was a sorta STRESSFUL day, I decided that no matter what, I was stamping. I sat down to do two cards, one for my nephew's birthday and one for the SCS color and sketch challenges. I started by TRYING to combine the two challenges, but that was a no go. I really dislike this color combo(Old Olive, Taken With Teal and Eggplant Envy), so I decided to do it separately. Why do you ask, because I love a challenge, and I miss doing them daily! The other day I was looking at my friend Silke's blog and my DH came in the room. He asked me who had made the card on the screen and I told him who and asked why...and he said, bravely, I knew it wasn't you....!! I asked him why he said that, and he said, your cards have more stuff on them...LOL!!! Who knew he was even paying attention!! So, in an effort to prove him wrong(and to use as little of this color combo), I decided to do a Silke inspired card. My main image was colored with my SU markers and then stamped. The sentiment is from the Verve Stamps set All About You. I pierced a border around it, added some wide grosgrain olive ribbon, and some silver brads, and it was done. Not my usually style, but I love it!!! I APOLOGIZE for the awful picture...just can't get the lighting right tonight!!
This next card was made using the SCS sketch challenge. I stamped my main image from the retired SU set Cowboy Kid. I colored him in with my SU markers and layered him with Real Red and Night of Navy(after distressing some of the edges). The DP is from the SU Prints Pack. I tied some hemp twine around the top and then added the sentiment. It is from the SU set Birthday Banter, and was cut out with my Word Window punch. I added some aged copper brads to it too. The star was stamped, colored and cut out. Since it is for my cousin Brody(he will be 4), I added a B to it with my SU Black marker.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
