Woo hoo! Two cards again today....I feel like I'm on vacation!!!!
Today's Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoast is to make a hinge card.....this is something I had not seen before, but Wendy aka Wendybell has an awesome tutorial video on her blog....it was much easier to do than I thought. Today is sneak peek day for new ODBD sets, which will be released June 1st!!!! I have used "Quiet Waters" for this card, but our other awesome new set is called "Ask, Seek, Knock". Wait until you see what our DT gals have already made with these sets.....wow!!!!! I am so blessed to be a part of the ODBD team!!!!
This card also was designed to fit two challenges from Christian Papercrafts Magazine. Janette's "Color Monday" challenge was to make a white or ivory card with just a splash of color.....okay, I splashed a little more than I was supposed to, but this is still a stretch for me to make a white card. Also, a few days ago was Korin's "Bible Verse Challenge" to use a New Testament verse on your project. If you haven't checked out Christian Papercrafts Magazine's gallery, or Bible studies, or forums.....what are you waiting for?! There is even a new Scrapbook Challenge Team (with daily challenges) for all of you scrappers out there!
My second card is for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast from yesterday. Mercy Kerin is such a talent.....you could spend days in her gallery!!! She has a very clean and creative style with some of the best layouts!! I chose this card to case because I loved the ribbon treatment, paper piercing (my obsession), and the punched border. This set is from Stampin' Up, called "Kind Thoughts"......I've had this set for six months but have just inked it today!!! I chose this set because it was similar to the set that Mercy used, plus it matched this gorgeous SU yummy dp!!! The image was stamped with Chocolate Chip, then colored in with a Signo Gel Pen. The border punch is EK Success Fleur De Lis, sentiment tag is Spellbinders Labels 4.
And now, to announce who will be receiving the Inspiration Challenge card from Saturday. Since there were only six comments on the blog post, my hubby, Tom, picked a number between one and six, so.......the WINNER IS: COMMENT #4.......Tenia Nelson!!!! I will try to find your email from SCS or CPCM to find out your address. By the way, thank you soooo much for all of your wonderful comments! I would absolutely LOVE to hear some of your jazz piano!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed day!!!!
