I have a few things I want to share with you today.
First, and most importantly, is a darling RAK card I received from my friend, Sabrina (Cook22 on SCS), aaalllllll the way from Ireland. This is Pip! Isn't he cute? Sabrina had made him for a Teapot Tuesday challenge and she knows how much I love penguins, so she sent him to me. He stands proudly on one of the shelves in my stamp room. Thank you so much, Sabrina! I love Pip!
Next is a notecard holder and a set of four cards I made for a gift set. I made the notecard holder earlier this week but just hadn't found the time to get it uploaded to my blog. When I saw the Limited Supplies challenge on Splitcoaststampers very early this morning to make more than one card (with different layouts) using the same main image and color scheme, I knew instantly it was just the boost I needed to get my coordinating cards done to go with the notecard holder! Woo-hoo!
And, lastly, is a Christmas card I made for a Doubledog Dare Challenge, hosted by my friend Joanne (sleepyinseattle) this week. She dared us to make a wreath using our stamps with extra bonus points if we used flower stamps. I used my Verve Petals & Stems flower image. I used a circle Nestability as a guide for my circle and stamped the first set of images. I then masked those images and stamped the remaining flowers to fill in the wreath. Half of the flowers have a polkadotted center (part of this same stamp set) and half are 1/4" circles punched out of Purely Pomegranate cardstock. I colored the flowers that appear to be in the background with Prismacolor pencil and gamsol. Lastly, I cut out the wreath and popped it up on dimensionals. I used the Mojo 114 sketch challenge for my layout.
