Exciting News!!

I wanted to share my birthday bug card with you...



in honor of being chosen for the CC Designs/All That Scraps Design Team!!! Yeah!!! Check out AmyR's post here and check out all the other great stampers I'll be working with!! How exciting!
The bug on this card is by CC Designs - I stamped him in black and colored him with markers. I paper pieced his sword with a piece of gold cardstock. I tore some patterned paper for the hill he is standing on and sponged some navy blue behind him to look like waves. My stitching on this card is getting better! I used my handy stitch once again...(check a previous post if you haven't heard of the handy stitch). I distressed the edges with my scissors and used a cotton ball to distress further with brown ink. The focal image is popped and the sentiment is by DRS Designs. I added some dark yellowish seed beads to the "sand" with crystal effects to look like real grains...work with me here! ;-)

***********************************

In other news...today was the color challenge over on SCS...fall colors - I decided to do something different though and make a holiday card with one of the DRS Designs new releases!



I stamped the ornament on SU! shimmer paper in gold craft and then heat embossed with gold powder. I then cut the image out. I stamped the pine bough on the sand layer with versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. The stars are stamped in sand on the sand layer. The ornament is raised on pop dots and I added some real SU! organdy ribbon to the ribbon on the ornament. I sewed (again!) around the perimeter - this time in a straighter line as I had a little more room to work with. I like my handy stitch but I know at times I will need to have straighter stitches so I guess at some point I need to drag out the "real" sewing machine!! I added a photo corner that I made from a square punch in the corner. The sentiment is actually a one line sentiment that I broke up to stamp onto two word window punches. I inked one side with my chocolate chip marker, stamped, cleaned and then repeated the process with the second punch/second half. I secured them each with a gold brad. (All images on this card are by DRS Designs)

Tomorrow is my favorite of the weeks challenges - the sketch challenge!!! I'll be back, I hope you will too. Thanks so much for visiting...
See you soon...
