Multiple Challenge Cards



Good morning everyone!! It's 1:00 AM and I'm still up...yikes!!! I am going to be sooo tired tomorrow!!! Anyway....
The Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoast yesterday was to use doubles. You could use two of the same image, buttons, brads, ets. I inked up some new Unity Stamps that needed a little love today!! These are images from the June KOTM...they were colored with copics, glitter was added to the bee's wings, and a Swarouski Crystal was added to the flower center. The ribbon is Melon Berry from PTI and the dp is by Making Memories. This is also for last weeks DDC challenge hosted by Joanne (sleepyinseattle) to make a Summery card using yellow, blue, and orange. My orange is more coral but don't tell Joanne!!!



If you want to play along just add DDC to the keywords section so we can find your card! Here is the link to the DDC challenge thread.
Recipe:

Stamps: Unity June KOTM
Paper: White, Black, Just Chillin dp by Making Memories
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Barely Banana
Accessories: Glitter, Punch, Nestabilities, PTI Ribbon, Swarouski Crystal, Dimensionals

I made this card for the Color Challenge on Tuesday. The colors were Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, White, Black, and Going Gray. I didn't have any Going Gray so I used Basic Gray. I really struggled with the color combo...after reworking the card several time I decided to stop and call it a day!!! The bride image was stamped with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep. The dp is from Stampin Up, the crystal flourishes from Hobby Lobby, and the May Arts ribbon from Rubbernecker. This is also for this weeks Double Dare challenge hosted by Fran (Francie G.) to make a wedding card. If you would like to join us in the challenge, add DDC to the keyworks section of your upload so we can find your card.

I made this card Wednesday for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. I used the Lost in Space set from Clear Dollar Stamps and the paper is Cogsmo by Cosmo Cricket. I colored the little green men with Copics and the only embellies are the googlie eyes and the rocket ship brad...yikes, no ribbon!!! I must have a fever!!!

These are amazing, Joan! I especially love your coloring on that floral/bee image. Awesome!

I feel your pain with being tired...I was at a Nickelback concert last night, didn't get to bed until almost 1 a.m., and the animals woke me up early to be fed and go out...the nerve. ;) I'm dragging today. Thank God for coffee!
