I decided to participate in WCMD Challenges at a couple of fun sites.
The first site is Turtle Soup. The challenges run from Oct 5 until Oct 13th. You still have time to make some cards and participate! :)
Cheryl's Challenge: Create a Christmas card and make any kind of 3D embellie.
My first card is "Happy Holidays."
I used pop dots under the fussy cut swirls and between two of the glitter snowflakes.
The 3D embellies are the swirls and foam glitter snowflakes.
Lisa's Challenge: The following Recipe:
1. Use old papers, at least 1 year
3. Add wings or wheels
Here's my "Surprise" card:
I created the pocket for the flowers. Sketch is Page Maps (June 2013).
Here's a couple photos showing a closer look at the pocket and flowers. I used a marker to create the stitches on the pocket, stamped the sentiment and added a twine bow. Under the pocket is a punched border, ribbon and twine.
The flowers were made by me... using a hot glue gun! The "petals" were created and a "dot" for the center... I then placed the petals where I wanted and added a dab of hot glue in the center and added the dot. They were colored with a combo... some with markers and some with paint.
The butterfly is the "wings" requirement.
Karen's Challenge: Birthday card and use scraps and add ribbon.
Here's my "Happy Birthday" card:
Another "square" card! The center circle and flower were embossed. I created the chevrons through the center... using a new technique from another challenge site. The gems are home made. Sketch is Page Maps (June 2012).
The whole card was made using scraps and I also dug into my scraps bin for the olive colored cardstock to make a portion of the chevrons. I had used these papers to create another card... and this is what was left over.
A closer look.
Tracy's Challenge: Make a Halloween card.
This is my "Trick or Treat" card:
Halloween cards are SO fun to make!! The metal tag was matted onto pp. Three black glitter gems were added in the upper left. Sketch is Page Maps (Mar 2008).
A closer look at the cute tag!!
Debbie's Challenge: Make a card with embossing on it.
Here's another "Trick or Treat" Halloween card:
After embossing the black cardstock, I gently rubbed Perfect Pearls over most of the raised circles. The pumpkin was cut using a Sizzlit die and I added orange pp under it. The glitter gems are home made. Sketch is Page Maps (Sept 2009).
Here's a closer look. The sentiment is foam glitter... and so cool!
Bev's Challenge: Use the sketch below and the twist - use monochromatic colors PLUS 1 accent color (white/cream doesn't count).
Here's my "Boo" card:
I chose the monochromatic orange colors with a black accent. The sentiment is a sticker. A small banner and ribbon was tucked to the right of the sentiment with a foam pumpkin just below that. The gems are home made.
A closer look.
Joan's Challenge: Make a "shaped" card.
Here's my "Thank You" star shaped card:
I recently purchased a shaped card template... and it was fun to actually use it! The smaller star is from the same template. I matted the smaller star with white cardstock. The sentiment is a rub on and swirly bling was added under the flowers. The gems are home made.
Here's a closer look.
I hope you enjoyed browsing through my cards!
Hopefully I have inspired you too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
