Cake, Candles and Babies!

Just a quick post today! Off to run some errands! Just wanted to show you a couple of cards I made for some recent SCS challenges. This first card is for today's Sketch Challenge. What a fun sketch, so many possibilities! I used my favorite combo lately....Kraft paper and turquoise! The turquoise polka dot paper is by Luxe Designs and the striped paper is by My Mind's Eye. The stamps are by Lizzie Anne Designs, In the Nursery, which I colored in with Shimmerz Paints. I finished it off with some Martha Stewart ribbon, buttons and hemp cord.

This next card was for Monday's Try a New Technique Challenge, to use fabric on your card. I stamped the little girl first onto a piece of white fabric, then trimmed out only the dress. I then colored it in with Copics and then Shimmerz Paints in opal and Sunny. I then adhered the fabric dress over another stamped image of the girl on cardstock. The stamp set used is by Pink Persimmon called Little Red Wagon. Papers used are by Making Memories and October Afternoon. I finished this off, with some more green fabric as grass, gingham ribbon, a Melissa Frances Rub-on, a button and some hemp cord.

Tomorrow I will have some cards that will be used as samples for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges that start tomorrow over at SCS and run until the 25th! There will be lots of fun challenges issued by past and present Dirty Dozen Members! So stop by SCS tomorrow and Dare to Get Dirty!! ;)

Have a Wonderful Day!!

Hugs,

Very Sweet! I love using fabric on my cards but I never thought to stamp on it LOL I usually buy fabric with the pattern or image already there. I'm so going to go home and try this technique tonight. Thanks for the inspiration!
