World Card Making Day Oct. 4th.

Are you ready to make some cards? If so, then head on over to the Scrapbook Playground. Some of the girls have already posted some pre crop challenges to get you started.

Here's a few cards I did for some of Kimmie's challenges.

Deets: Cardstock: SU. Pattern Paper: one of those slabs I purchased at my local Walmart. Ribbon: Offray. Stamps: SU (Pocket Silhouettes). Felt flower: Sizzix. Bosher: Bazzill. Button: MM.

Deets: Cardstock: SU & The Paper Co. Pattern Paper: Sassafras Lass & Provo Craft. Stamps: SU (Pocket Silhouettes). Ribbon: Offray. Accessories: button, felt flower and jewelry tag.

I was having a cow to try out Tim Holtz's watercolor technique that aired on the Carol Duvall Show. So here it is. Yes, I know I'm no Tim Holtz's but I'm kind of happy with the results. Here's the link if you're interested. http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/08/september-techn.html Okay, now for the deets. Cardstock: SU. Pattern Paper: Scenic Route. Stamps: SU & Penny Black. Inks: Adirondack. Ribbon: Offray. Accessories: safety pin and charm.

Thanks for taking the time to look. Happy crafting!

Just wanted to share.....

a quick card I made for a mini challenge that was posted a couple of weeks ago over at the Use Your Stash blog. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm a tad late in posting it, but hey, better late than never I always say. Anywho, the challenge was to make a "you made my day" card and send it to someone. So here it is, now I just need to figure out who to send it to.

By the way, I used one of the many new fabulous card maps over at Page maps. Be sure and check 'em out when you get a chance.

Okay onto to my card. Cardstock is from Stampin' Up. Patterned papers are from SEI and Making Memories. I used my Sizzix to cut a flower out of felt and I used a Sassafras Lass stamp for the stem and the button is from Autumn Leaves. TFL.

I finally had the house all to myself for a couple of hours this afternoon and managed to start and finish this layout for the chipboard challenge over at Use Your Stash. By the way, if you want to play along all you have to do is complete a layout using chipboard and link to the blog by the 20th of this month. If you don't have chipboard just do what I did and recycle a mail envelope.

Okay , now for the deets. Cardstock: Kraft by The Paper Co. Pattern paper and large letter stickers: Sassafraslass. Stamps: Studio G and Prima. Small letter stickers and green button: Making Memories. Cardstock stickers: Sticko by EK Success.

It was a long Labor Day weekend and all I managed to do was make two little ole' cards. Pathetic I know.

I combined challenges with this first card. The first challenge was issued by Use Your Stash. The challenge was to make a card with the scraps leftover from my layout below. Check.
The second challenge was a Limited Supply Challenge - LSC183 issued by Judy over at SCS. The challenge was to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Well the something old is definitely eyelets. Something new is the ribbon by Offray. Something borrowed is a sketch from Verve. Something blue is the cardstock. Check. Check.
Okay, now for the deets.
Stamp: Inkadinkado. Cardstock: Kraft - The Paper Co. Patterned paper: SEI. Ribbon: Offray. Eyelets: Making Memories. I also used a border punch by Martha Stewart and rectangle nestabilities by Spellbinders.

This second card is for the Ways to Use It challenge - WT181 over at SCS. The challenge was to sharpen our Prisma coloring pencils and use them with Gamasol, OMS or baby oil. I chose to use baby oil because I already had some in my bathroom.

Okay, now for the deets.
Stamp: All Night Media. Cardstock: Kraft - The Paper Co. Patterned Paper: Rob and Bob Studio, Provo Craft. Ribbon: the blue is Offray, unsure about the pink. Safety pin: Walmart

Thanks for looking and I hope you all had a more productive weekend.
