I wanted to get used to posting about the latest challenge since I'll be joining the design team for Hand Stamped Sentiments next week. Very exciting!!
This week's challenge is to make a Shadow Box Card. I was inspired by the fact that I really WANT/NEED a vacation!! :) Hawaii or bust!!
Here is the side view to see the dimension:
Ingredients: Soft Suede, Old Olive and Very Vanilla Cardstock and ink. Plant Hope and Elements of Style Stamp Sets. Coluzzle Cutting system, Small oval punch, antique brads, hemp twine, linen thread and embossing folder.
I entered the challenge for the blog called Hand Stamped Sentiments. In April I will be joining their design team and I am very excited! The challenge was to create something with flowers. The stamps I used are also FREE when you spend $50 on your order before March 31st. Here is what I came up with:
I decided to do a card with a very vintage look in honor of Elizabeth Taylor's passing...it's got rhinestone sparkle and a sleek look with a beautiful flourish.
You'll notice in this view that the flowers are curled up a little to create a 3 Dimensional look.
Ingredients: Basic Gray, Basic Black and Very Vanilla Cardstock, Basic Gray ink, Birds and Blooms Sizzlit, Elizabeth and Three Little Words stamps, Rhinestones, Scallop punch, sponges

There are only about 2 weeks left to earn FREE products from the Sale-a-bration promotion. Here is a card and a notepad holder that I made using the Punch Bunch stamp set. Lovin' the Real Red Glimmer Paper, too!! Then I got really ambitious...I wanted to use up some of my scraps and things that I had either punched out or started to work on and never finished. I used the Punch Bunch Stamp Set and the Oval All stamp set to make most of these cards. I love the way they turned out!!! Here are a few cards that I made with my scraps that I have recently sent out.
This one is for a friend that is having her first baby...a boy...due any day now! :) Can't wait to meet her little guy!
