The branch takes the place of the ribbon in the sketch and I stamped the 'Save the Hooters' sentiment in the sign image included in the set to take the place of the tag in the sketch. The letters from PTI's Simple Alphabet fit perfectly in the little sign. Since it is snowing here I tore a piece of pre-glittered white cardstock to serve as the ground, though the true sparkliness does not come through in the photo. In addition, this card satisfied the following challenges:
- Our Craft Lounge 89 (OCL89) - Going Pink,
- Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 141 - Use a tree or leaf element in your card, and
- The Kraft Journal Make-It_Monday Challenge - Anything Goes with Kraft Cardstock.
My next card was made for the HYCCT Save the Boo-Bees Challenge using this week's CAS-ual Friday Sketch 26 (CFC26) and There She Goes Clear Stamps' Bee Happy mini set:
I substituted the popped up bee in for the circle in the sketch and the dotted 'bee flight trail' for the ribbon element in the middle. I added petite black rhinestones at the ends of the antenae though I don't bee-lieve they show up well in this photo. The honeycomb paper is from Echo Park's Walk in the Park collection. This card also fulfills the requirements of the following two additional challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp and Show - One Color (I obviously went with yellow), and
- Pile It On Challenge 43 - Bee Happy.
I had bees on the brain by this point so I decided to use the fancy version of Priscilla Styles' Midnight Madness Sketch 127 (MMSC127) with some bees from Kim Hughes' The Birds & The Bees set from Cornish Heritage Farms for the HYCCT 'Paint Your Heart Out' Challenge - to use paint on a card.
I used the crayon resist technique (see the white 'highlighting' on the sides of the hives? that's crayon!) for the background sponged with summer sun, pumpkin pie and close to cocoa ink on glossy cardstock, and stamped the bees separately, cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. I painted the bees' wings with Angel Wings Shimmerz paint to give them a glistening, gossamer effect (which doesn't really show up in the photo unfortunately). This card also fulfills the following additional challenges:
- Shopping Our Stash Challenge 25 - Fall Color (or Halloween, but I went with fall colors obviously),
- Charisma Cardz Challenge 43 - Anything Goes, and
- Pile It On Challenge 43 - Bee Happy.
Alrightie, that is all I have for you right now. I hope to stamp the day away tomorrow too and will have more to show you then. Don't forget to check out my blog candy in my 100th Blog Post: HERE! Happy Saturday Night!
