Kristina’s Color Challenge #23

it’s been a WHILE since I’ve done one of these! The timing doesn’t usually seem to work out for me, but last night I sat my butt down and did this challenge. You can find all the info here on Kristina’s blog.

This card is SUPER simple…for some reason I just felt like using circles. I couldn’t get the circle idea outta my head. Anyway, I feel like the card needs something more…but oh well. I figure this will be a great masculine birthday card. Thanks for looking everyone!

Kristina’s Color Challenge 16

another color challenge on Kristina’s blog…I love these things! The colors this week were super cute. It made me realize that I really need more baby stamps…especially at this age! Lots of my friends, acquaintances and co-workers are having babies! 🙂
Here is my submission. I finally got to use some fun scalloped card stock that I had bought and was hoarding. (i’m SUCH a hoarder. trying to get better…) I also got to use one of these thick chipboard scallop shapes. I picked these up at a scrapbook store in Hyannis a few weeks ago. They are really fun to work with and I love the dimension they add.
I used craft ink for the stamps from Baroque Motifs, and embossed using some shimmery embossing powder. Same thing for the polka dots on the card, except with Versamark ink. I made the chipboard shape orange by adhering Pumpkin Pie CS to it and cutting/sanding it down.

It’s super hot here today. I’m off to go relax back in the AC and get some more work done…see ya later!!

Kristina’s Color Challenge #10

another color challenge from Kristina’s blog. I love these. I found this one to be tougher than the last one she had, but I really enjoyed it! I also challenged myself not to use any stamps on these cards…sometimes they go a lot quicker that way.
Sounds like we are getting a few thunderstorms here in MA this morning, so I’m going to shutup and just upload these cards before we lose Internet!
Have a great weekend everyone…

thought I should note that I did have a bit of inspiration for the 2nd card above. It’s not exactly the same, but I also want to give credit where it’s due! Kristina’s card that inspired me can be found here. The “happy day” card above was my take on it.
