Today I have two cards for your viewing pleasure, both based on inspiration challenges. The first is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Inspiration Challenge 22 over at Splitcoaststamps:
Pretty color combo, isn't it? I used Sweet Stop Sketch 141 and SNSS' 'Fall Time Cocoa' to create this card:
I paper pieced the pumpkin from some old Stampin' Up designer papers in my stash and colored in little Cocoa mouse with Copic markers. I really like these colors together. This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- Karen's Doodles Challenge - Paper Piecing,
- Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog - Create a Card with Animals, and
- Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge 24 - Out with the Old (I have had those designer papers in my stash for several years, glad they are finally getting some love).
On to card 2... which is based on this picture from the Play Date Cafe Challenge (to use burgundy, gold & purple):
I don't know what about this color combination said 'Hanukkah' to me, but it did and I used There She Goes Clear Stamps' "HSH - Hanukkah Additions" to create this card:
I think I might play around with this color combination a bit more, I never would have thought to combine these colors on my own, but I like them! I think I need to invest in some fine detail EP, my embossing always looks chunky. Since I used two kinds of embossing on this card, heat embossing and the Swiss Dots CB EF, this card fulfills the requirements of the Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge 90 - Embossing.
Thanks again for stopping by my blog to see my cards and for your kind thoughts & prayers for Ty baby - keep 'em coming! That sweet little dog's messed up back needs all the prayers he can get. Have a great night!
