1000 Member Party Challenges

Here are a couple of cards that I made for the 1000 Member Party Challenges over at The Outlawz.  The first one is for CAS1003.  The challenge is to choose an item in your stash that is either unopened or rarely used.   I have a lot of things like that.  The stamp is one that I bought in 2003 and never used.  I also love buttons and rarely use them.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set that I haven't used in a couple of years.  So most of the things on this card have been collecting dust.

The next card is for CC1003 which is a color challenge.  The colors are Chinese Red, Mandarin Orange, and Sunflower Yellow.  

The colors that I used are Stampin' Up Summer Sunrise, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red.  I also used FTL161 for the card design.

Thanks for looking.

I made this card for The Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge.  The challenge was to use only black and white.  I tried uploading it there and it keep loading on its side.  I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong, so I decided to post it here and then link it.  I hope this works.  Thanks for looking.

Hopefully, the Summer Card Camp will get me inspired to stamp again.  It has been awhile.  I tried to use this weeks techniques on the hummingbird, but it didn't turn out too well.  I made this card for my friend.  She gave me the hummingbird punch for my birthday.  Thanks for looking.

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Tag Download Challenge

The final card uses the image by Maile Belles.  I love, lover her work and I know I will be in deep trouble with her stamps.

I tried to capture her style with this card.  I stared with Stamper Select White Cardstock.  I used the Limitless Label dies for the next few steps.  I cut a scalloped circle from Shimmer Pink cardstock and then die-cut the scalloped circle using the 1 3/4 circle.  It left a scalloped frame.  I used the 1 3/4 circle to make the die-cut in my card.  I used a 1 3/4 punch to punch out Maile's image.  I colored it with Copics.  I then carefully glued it through the die-cut hole.  I used a glue pen to attach the scalloped frame.  I used Sweet Blush satin ribbon for my bow. 

Thanks for looking.

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Tag Download Challenge

The third image I used was the one that Dawn McVey created.  I also used FTL102 for my card.

I started with a white card using PTI Stampers Select White.  The sentiment is from Signature Greeting. I stamped it in Hawaiin Shores ink and then used the Woodgrain Impression Plate.  I attached the three images with glue and the buttons with twine.  The buttons are Hawaiin Shore tied with the rustic twine.

The next card I made used Lisa Johnson's image.  This just might be my husband's Valentine's Day card.

The card size for this one is 3 1/2 by 6 1/4.  I started with PTI Stampers Select White cardstock.  I cut the black mat 2 1/2 by 6 and glued it to the white base.  I punched out the images with a 1 3/4 punch and glued the outer two images.  I colored the center image with Copics and attached it to PTI Limitless Label die-cut in Pure Poppy.  The sentiment is from Sweet Love stamp set.


Papertrey Ink Anniversary Tag Download Challenge

I love the the Anniversary Tag Download images.  I had high hopes of using all of the images, but I ended up only getting four done.  I still might work on some more, but I don't think my pictures will turn out.

The first image I uses was Alli Miles image.  I love that flower.

I colored the images with Copics and attached them to Plum Pudding cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from  Take Three: Summer with Fresh Snow ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The bow is PTI white silk ribbon.  I used Frosted Lace Stickles in the center of the flowers.
