A Melange of Challenges

But, before I get into my challenge cards, I just wanted to highlight one of my cards that was published in Paper Crafts 365 Cards, earlier this year.  I originally submitted it for Remembrance Day, which for the Commonwealth, is 11th November and the poppy a traditional symbol of WW1.


It was reprised earlier in the week for Memorial Day in the US on the Papercrafts blog and Facebook page.  It is one of my favourite CAS cards and all time favourite HA stamps.

So, onto the first challenge, I haven't had the chance to have a go at The Deconstructed Sketch so now is as good a time as any.  Love these colours together though it did take a bit of time to come up with my card design.  I took the opportunity to pull out some sadly neglected Hero Arts stamps for the A blog named Hero challenge






This card also fits in nicely with the latest Simon Says Stamp challenge of "Anything Goes" with twine.


What you need
Cardstock - SU white, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Stamps - HA Line Dots, Flower?;  PTI Sending You (sentiment)
Ink - SU Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake (marker)
Dies - SB Classic Circles, Large Scallop Circles
Linen Thread - SU
Gems - Kaisercraft

*******
Case Study #93


I love the colour of the flowers but can't bring myself to spray paper - too messy for me, but I love the graduated effect.  This card is for a work colleague who is leaving to finish her studies to completely change her career - I admire her hard work and determination, but I will miss her a great deal.



What you need
Cardstock - PTI white
Patterned paper - SU First Edition;  Gingham?
Stamps - HA flowers?;  PTI Wishing You
Ink - Versacolor Turquoise;  SU Early Espresso
Die - MFT Fish Tail Flag Stax
Gems - Kaisercraft

  8. Congrats on the published card; it's a stunner! I think I have that stamp, and I should probably pull it out! Love the CASE card, too. I'm another one who's reluctant to spray!
