Good Morning!!

Good morning everyone!! I am soo excited because tomorrow I will be going to the North Texas Shoebox Swap with my DD Holly!!! We will be stamping from 9AM to 9PM...Whoohoo!!! I can't wait to show you some of the cards we make in Sunday's post!! Today I will show you a few of the cards I made last week.

I was a stamping machine last Tuesday for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast. I used a lot of the scraps sitting on my stamping counter from the previous card I made and then some!!!

I make one with the Mojo88 sketch (the one on the left) and all the images were stamped images that were sitting in my unfinished projects drawer waiting for a little love. They were all colored with copics, the dp scraps came from my scrap box and the images were all cut out with various types of Nesties. This was soooo much fun!!

Stamps: Elzybells, Cornish Heritage Farms Hey Chickie, Penny Black Garden Friends
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, White, Doodlebug dp, SU dp, The Paper Studio dp,
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, SU Scallop Punch, Candy Dots, Pearls, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Picket Fence Punch

This is the card I made for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast Wednesday. It is also for last week's DDC challenge hosted by Charlene. We were to use piercing, paper piecing, Kraft, Rose, and Black cardstock. If you would like to play along be sure to add DDC to the keyworks section of you upload so we can find your cards. You can find all the DDC cards here.

The butterfly images are from Rubbernecker's new Butterfly Inchies set and the flourish is from Rubbernecker's new Flourish Inchies set. The main image butterfly and flourish were both stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and the butterfly was paper pieced with another butterfly from the set that was stamped on rose colored dp.

Piercing was done around the image and along the flourish. The other butterflies were stamped, cutout, and attached with glue dots to the layer stamped with Rubbernecker's French Script bg stamp. The background paper is from SEI called Jolie Chocolat. Silver Dew Drops and a kraft colored shear ribbon finish it off.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Butterfly Inchies, Rubbernecker Flourish Inchies
Paper: Rose Red, White, Kraft, Black, SEI dp, SU dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rose Red
Accessories: Ribbon, Silver Dew Drops, Dimensionals

Thanks for coming by today ....have a great weekend!!!
