Second post, scroll down for first!
Well I missed the color challenge on the Color Throwdown blog but I am coming in under the wire for the sketch challenge at the Eat Sleep Stamp blog. The color challenge was to use Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, and Pink Passion. I also was able to do a challenge at a new blog that is advertising itself as a “source of inspiration and information “. The Next Level blog went live at the beginning of the month and they have already posted several tutorials as well as the challenge I used on this card. The challenge they issued was to use a ribbon border on your card. They gave the directions so it was easier than it looks. Here is the sketch and my creation.
Stamps: Simply Said Paper: Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, White Ink: Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, Pink Passion Accessories: Green Galore – Pink Passion markers, eyelet border punch, notched corner punch (retired), ribbon (Pink Hedgehog), paper cutter and bone folder (to do embossed edge), exacto knife and cutting pad (to cut slits to fit ribbon in), sticky tape, dimensionals
Hope you enjoyed today’s card. Thanks for looking and enjoy your afternoon!
I am so glad this set did not get retired. I love the images in the Fun & Fast Notes. You can do so much with them.
I used the hedgehog image and the Card Patterns
sketch as the beginning of this card. I used the Color Dare
challenge of Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and So Saffron for the colors. I have to admit when I put these colors together I didn’t think I would be able to make it work. But I think you will agree with me that this is one cute card! Here is the sketch and my creation.

I am loving my Bow Easy. I love the double loop bows I can make. They turn out perfect. I was wondering how it would do with a grosgrain but I had no trouble using it with this ribbon.
Today’s card uses the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I wanted to use the hostess set God’s Beauty as I love the butterfly and leaves. I hadn’t played with the butterfly so I thought it would be fun to stamp and emboss it and use emboss resist to color it in. I used sponge daubers to apply colors to the butterfly.
Not going to chat much. I am working on my tutorial for my card purses. I hope to have it ready to post by the end of the week. Here is the sketch and my creation for today’s card.
Stamps: God’s Beauty Paper: Blue Bayou, So Saffron, white, Blue Bayou DS Ink: Basic Black Craft, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Wild Wasabi Accessories: ribbon (Michael’s), Metallic Dots (Card Embellishments), clear embossing powder, oval Nestabilities, Zots, sticky tape, dimensionals
