So anyway, on the All That Scraps blog, they posted a cute sketch challenge that I thought I'd try this week. I used my new C.C. Designs stamps for this one. Isn't that little bear so cute with all his drippy pink ice cream?! I could just snuggle him to pieces. hehe
What I used: C.C. Designs stamp, Bazzill and K&Co papers, Scor-Pal, faux dew drops, Memento brown ink, Copic markers, pink ribbon, oval nestabilities and my cuttlebug.
The other challenge card is from the challenge posted on the Our Creative Corner blog. These ladies are so talented...I'm always just in awe of their fabulous work. Maybe someday I'll be at that level...I'm a few years behind them so I'll keep working at it!
Anyway, their challenge was to do dry embossing. EEee...I love dry embossing! I just love texture. I'm a "touchy" person in that I like to touch things and see how they feel. Does that make me weird? Anyway, for this one I used two cuttlebug folders for the cream cardstock. First I inked up my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Then I ran it again through the cuttlebug using my Birds and Swirls folder. I just loved how the embossing turned out on that! I used my Nestabilities oval to cut and emboss some vellum, then I stamped my birds stamp from Inkadinkado in white on my vellum. I colored it from behind so the colors would be a bit muted. I then took a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed a scalloped rectangle then ran it through the Swiss Dots folder. I then mounted the vellum onto the rectangle using my Xyron adhesive so that I could get the itty dots to appear on the vellum from behind.
What I used: black, pomegranate, vanilla CS, vellum, Cuttlebug and Nestabilities ovals and rectangles, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Birds and Swirls folders, black SU! ribbon, white craft ink, Copic markers, white gel pen, Scor-Pal.
Whew. So now that I've rambled on for 10 days...thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend. :)
