More Challenge cards

Happy Monday

The sun is shining in my little part of the UK, and last week there were several challenges!!!!!!

The first card I would like to share is a Mothers day card, yes I know Mothers day is nothing but a memory here in the UK, but across the pond, it is still on the calendar, so here is my entry for STV's challenge:

The stamp set used on the focal image is Whats the Dirt, and the sentiment, I picked up in a sale earlier this year at a local hobby store, the image is cut out with Spellbinders lacy ovals, and layered onto big scalloped ovals, and labels eighteen, the little medallion behind the butterfly, is Spellbinders ribbon buckles and the butterfly is the smallest from Spellbinders butterflies 2.

The second card is for the amazing April release party, last Thursday over at STV, the new sets and papers are just wonderful, if you would like to see the new stamp sets and papers, you can see them Here.

The very talented DT member Tina set us a challenge for a card with one layer and one embellishment, now many of you know CAS is not something I find easy to do, but none the less I "had a go"!

The stamp set is a soon to be retired set from GKD, called Vintage Backgrounds, the sentiment is again from Whats the Dirt, and the flower is Spellbinders spiral blossom 2.

The last card for today is for the second party challenge, set by the lovely Cat, the challenge was to make a card, with an image of something you could find in the produce isle of your local supermarket.

I used the strawberries and the sentiment from Enjoy the Sunshine, again i used labels eighteen from Spellbinders, and classic ovals small, the strawberries are coloured using pencils and OMS, Gina has made two videos explaining how to do this technique and they can both be found below:

Have a great day :-)
