Hello and Happy Monday!
It's time for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers! This is a week of about 40 special challenges for Fan Club members. I got a late and slow start, due to a bunch of commitments, including being out of town most of today. I have been updating my gallery, and now my blog. I posted these cards to SCS yesterday, thinking I would stamp more today. Nope. Didn't happen! Any way...here goes!
I am a week late on this Paper Players challenge...but I WILL get them all done this year! I am DETERMINED! I like this clean sketch. I combined it with the current ColourQ challenge, plus Vicki's DTGD challenge. I can't link that one, because it is exlusive to Fan Club members...but you should join!
The card base is rich razzlberry. On whisper white, I used SU's "Mixed Bunch" to create my own pattern paper. I dry embossed a strip of saffron with the chevron folder. The sentiment is from "Whmsical Words," on a scallop circle. Strips of satin and taffeta ribbon were used, along with a punched heart.
Next, I have a card that was for a special challenge, with a chance to win a Fan Club membership or renewal. We were challenged to use something in our stash that we have had but never used. I purchased a set of book mark stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs way back in January, but none of them had been used yet! I decided this stamp would work well with a past ColourQ challenge. (Completing those this year is not a specific goal, but I really like this palette!) It is also for Lydia's DTGD challenge. The turquoise card base is large: 5x7. I had pieces of poppy and daffodil pattern paper in my dp scraps...perfect! I used blender pens to color the image, then mounted it on black to make it pop. Enamel dots finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by! There is NO way I will complete all of the DTGD challenges, with all of the stuff I need to do this week. But I hope to get 10-12 completed. Stay tuned!
