Hello Stamping Friends!
I have a few more HYCCCT cards to post. I have not been doing these in order, so hang in there with me!
Lee posted a challenge, "A Bear for My Sister." I have no cute bear images, but I recall receiving 2 of these stamped images in a swap. Sorry, I don't know what company makes this stamp. But the sentiment is from a retired set from My Favorite Things. My card base is basic gray. The dsp is from a long-retired Christmas pack from SU. I used my blender pens to color the image, cut it out with my framelits, and sponged. The colors I used are kiwi kiss, soft sky, basic gray, smokey slate, creamy caramel, and pretty in pink. I also cut the sentiment out with framelits. The ribbon is from a different swap.
Next, I have a card for Misti's challenge: "A Spoonful of Sugar." Starting with a chocolate chip card base, I added a layer of close to cocoa that is embossed with the diagonal stripes folder. The ribbon is from some yummy blog candy that I won a while ago. I used the SU set "So Very" for this card, stamping with melon mambo and chocolate chip on whisper white and pink pirouette card stock. I made a cup cake with my scallop circle punch, a scrap of glimmer paper and a free-hand cut piece of textured melon mambo for the base. I colored the glimmer paper with a melon mambo marker and added pink stickles (more blog candy) to the embossed swirls, to look like frosting. This will make a nice card for my great-niece next month!
A Card for My Hero." My card has a very clean and simple design. I have lots of heroes, but I usually think of heroes of the Faith. I had this stamp with a quote from Mother Teresa. I decided to showcase it on white (embossed with those diagonal stripes again) with pacific point striped ribbon to mimic the habits of her religious order, The Missionary Sisters of Charity. I have a lot of punched out hearts, so I grabbed a few for a pop of color...and to go with her inspiring words.
More fun cards will be posted in the next few days. Stay Tuned!
