Monday Challenge Cards


Hello everyone!! I hope you are all well and happy this morning!!! I dove into a few challenges today...I made this thank you card for the CAS challenge on Splitcoast. Jen picked an inspiration challenge today from the Cost Plus World Market online store....I chose the Round Suzani Applique pillow as inspiration. The black layer is my faux suede layer for the TLC challenge on Splitcoast, the round card design is for the CCEE challenge and it also qualifies for the Cupcake Crafts challenge to make a thank you card. Phew!!!!! The medallion was made using a corner punch with the guard off. The little flowers were punched out and attached with glue dots. The sentiment is from See D's Phrases Collection and the silver pearls finish it off.
Recipe:

Stamps: See D's Phrases Collection
Paper: White, Black, Prism Vibrant Teal
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: SU Corner Punch, SU Trio Flower Punch, Blossom Nestabilities, Silver Pearls. Rounc Scalloped Nestabilities

This is my card for Unity Stamp's Bachelor Bro Challenge #3 to use plaid and polka dots. The Unity butterfly images and the sentiment were stamped with Versamark and embossed with white ep. They were then colored with copics. Let me give you a little tip....you might want to seal the embossing so the ep doesn't melt onto your copic marker....I now have to change the nubs on two markers!! Anyway...the flourishes and sentiment layer were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the scallops were stamped with Pumpkin Pie onto Summer Sun cs. Gold pearls and the plaid ribbon from Stamper's Dream finish it off.

Recipe:

Stamps: Unity Bevy of Butterflies, Unity's September 2008 KOM
Paper: Summer Sun, Black, Basic Grey's Indian Summer dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Versamark
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Plaid Ribbon, Gold Pearls, Dimensionals, Copics
Thanks for visiting today....have a good one!!!!
