Because I was down for so many days, I'm back with a major update today. 3 cards for 3 separate challenges! Today was productive!
First up is for the Lawnscaping Challenge - Sweets.
I combined a total of 4 stamp sets for this sucker! It involved a ton of masking and coloring, but not much else. I love these simple cards that have huge impact. I added some glossy accents to the crab and the hermit crab's shell. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the cookie and the frosting on the cupcake. I can't wait to send this to my uncle for his birthday next week!
Next up is my entry to the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge - Anything Goes.
I used one of my favorite sets for this card, but I guess it's been discontinued because it was missing when I searched the site for it. Bummer. I simply stamped the lemon bars on a small panel along with the sentiment and then colored them with my copics. I finished them by adding a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the lemon part of the bar. I repeat stamped the background panel with the lemon stamp and then pieced everything together. I finished it off by adding a few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
And finally, my entry to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Birthday.
I used my Misti to position all the stamps the way I wanted them on the panel and then stamped everything at once. (I love my Misti!) I kept everything simple and colored the images with my copics. I need something mailable, so I left off any embellishments in favor of keeping it flat. I know the sentiment seems generic, but I made it with my grandmother in mind, so I wanted something that looked a little classier than my normal whimsical style. I'll personalize the greeting inside and make it more geared toward her birthday.
Thanks for bearing with me through this huge post! The Supplies for each card are listed below in case you want to check them out!
