Dare To Get Dirty Challenge Days Two and Three

Hello everyone....I am going to share some cards I made in the last 3 days for the Dare to get Dirty challenges on Splitcoast. These challenges will go on all week and they are presented by the Dirty Girls and Alumni for the Fan Club Members. If you're not a Fan Club Member, this is the perfect time to become one! You can get all the info here on the Fan Club information page. We'd love to have you play with us this week! There are 33 challenges to choose from - play one or play them all.
I made this card for three DTGD challenges today:
The sweet little Penny Black stamp called Betsy Bluebell from Stampers Dream was colored with copics. The paper is from BG's Material Girl and the buttons and ribbon finish it off.
Stamps: Penny Black's Betsy Bluebell
Paper: Vanilla, Black, PrismBlush Red Medium. Basic Grey's Material Girl dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Nestabilities, Buttons, Ribbon, Foam Tape

I combined the DTGD10rsalamon challenge with the DTGD10justwritedesigns01 challenge. The roses from Melanie Muenchinger's Pressed Flowers set were stamped with Vivid Aqua and the leaves were stamped with Kiwi Kiss. Two of the the flowers and leaves were cutout and popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment from Gina K's Inside Out set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, cutout with a Nesties shape, and sponged with the Aqua ink while it was still in the die. The punched butterfly was added to finish it off.
Stamps: Pressed Flowers, Inside Out
Paper: White
Ink: Vivid Aqua, Kiwi Kiss, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Punch, Dimensionals

I made this card yesterday for the Featured stamper challenge....I was really excited to see Latisha (1busymomof2) as Featured Stamper in the spotlight...her gallery was such a delight with lots of gorgeous cards to case!!!! I chose her Best Wishes card for inspiration....I kept the same flower theme and white textured space but changed the flowers to Nina Brackett's Hugs and Prayers set, added the paper pieced butterfly, glitter, framed sentiment, and ribbon. This is also for all of these DTGD challenges:

Stamps: Hugs and Prayers
Paper: White, Real Red
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Real Red and Old Olive Markers, Wide Gingham Ribbon, Glitter, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder

I made this super fun Retro card for two challenges: Bev's DTGD10Bevmom ( I just love the food channel) and Kim's DTGD10Blondie090277 . I used papers and stickers from the the cutest scrapbook kit I bought at my LSS called Mom's Diner *Cookbookin* by PJK Designs from San Antonio, Tx. I backed the stickers with black cardstock so they were a little stiffer and easer to work with.
Paper: Prism Frosted Teal, Black, Cookbookin dp from PJK Designs
Accessories: Ribbon, Dimensionals

Anne (Itsapassion) hosted the Inspiration Challenge on SCS Saturday and chose the coolest web store called "Georgie Love". It's a source for Australian artists in Victoria to promote and sell their works to the world. I found my inspiration from the Black & White Damask Pleated Wristlet purse simply because I already had the black and white paper sitting on my stamp table from another project. I just love it when a plan comes together!!! The flower silhouette and sentiment both from Rubbernecker was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, embossed with clear ep, cutout with a Nesties shape, and attached with foam tape. The silk ribbon and prima finish it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Floral, Rubbernecker Party Time
Paper: White, Prism Intense Kiwi, GCD Studios dp
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Prima, Ribbon, Nestabilities
