French Infulenced

french toile

When I saw Sharon’s Challenge to create a tolie inspired card I knew I had to try it.

I was think FRENCH influence with this and love toile in blue’s and burgundy’s. Since these are my two most used colors these days (soft sky, blue bayou) I figured Id go with the blues.

I did THREE bkgds for this! Baroque (OMG! Lovin this one), Aida cloth (much neglected) and Garden Silhouettes (LOVE IT)

Carte Postale is generally NOT my thing, but I got it anyway. I have to say I have to say I do love it, and have yet to regret purchasing it.

Another favorite- Garden Silhouettes! OMG! Im just in love with it. And it was perfect for the “job”.

So here you have it.

My ribbon is Martha Stewart of course. Lots of layers and faux stitching, and DTP.

Anyway-hope you like my attempt!

Hope you get to play.

Tune in tomorrow for my challenge! And my samples for some of the other challenges. Its going to be a FUN week!

DARE to get DIRTY is finally here! A super cool week of challenges. All the SCS Dirty Dozen, current and Alumni, have worked hard on their challenges and samples for this week.

I hope you have fun, time to play, and really enjoy it. I love all the challenges on SCS, and found it to really help me grow as a stamper. So, a whole week of multiple challenges really ROCKS!

I am hosting a COOL Challenge tomorrow, and a Sketch Challenge Tuesday the 31st!! So check in, and I hope you will join me!

This card-Fall Friendship was done for Jen’s (aka genie1314) Sketch today

fall friendship

I thought Jens sketch was really cool. I love lots of fun layers.

I was really in a fall mood when I saw THIS Francesca ribbon by Strano in my stash. I had just enough to make this card! Great way to use my scraps. The ribbon doesn’t go around the card, its secured with a button at the other end.

The patterned paper is from a slab I got at Target.

I stamped and colored (copic markers) my Falling For You set (sentiment is Sassy Sayings) by MFT Stamps. This image is my particular favorite from the set. I then used my scalloped circle punch to create and scalloped window, from chocolate chip, to mount over my image.

I have a tiny leaf punch (michaels $1 spot), so I punched a bunch from patterned paper and attached them randomly all over!

Instead of a circle for Jen’s sketch I placed my leaf (from Prima pretty cool huh?) instead.

My colors on this card are-Wasabi, Rust, Choc. Chip, and Pumpkin Pie.

Thanks for looking 😀

Cards for pets!

cards and pets Doggy Days

I can’t believe I actually made a “pet” card. I am actually thinking more like a “Ruff Day” type of card! LOL!

This is for Anna Wight’s Challenge (aka SweetMissDaisy). She wanted cards done for, or by animals and pets! LOL!

I had this set from Gel-A-Tins called Pet Shop (very suiting dont ya think) and thought it should see some ink.

The tag is a paw punch, as are the little dog bones. I got this dog treat paper “somewhere”??? The ribbon was JoAnn’s $1 bobbin I had for like 2 years! LOL!

I had NO IDEA where I was going with this and struggled immensely with the overall design. DESPITE the fact that the set is super cute-I did it no justice! Its was one of those, you have one idea, that tirns into somehting else. That can usually be better than the original, but often not. Well that is what happened here! LOL!

But hey you win some you lose some. That is why they are called CHALLENGES right?

Who is having a ruff day besides me?
