I have two cards to share with ya'all today.....one for the beach-combers and the other for those who love the wilderness!
The first card I have used many challenges on: the Fun on Friday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts is to make an easel card. I used the instructions shown on the Splitcoast Technique Lover's Challenge...see this post. Both the Fab-N-Funky Challenge and the Color Throwdown Challenge #96 is to use Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron. The Tuesday Throwdown is to use a nautical theme. The Stampin B's Challenge theme is "Seashore". I have used some pearly new designer paper from SEI, called "On The Beach"...it has the turquoise and orange I needed for the color challenges and I sponged So Saffron to complete the colors. The frame around the sentiment was cut with Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities dies; the sentiment is from an Our Daily Bread designs' set, "Friendship". The May Arts satin ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy and the palm charm is another I received from my ODBD DT sister, America! The pearl brad is by Zva Creative....there HAD to be a pearl to go with the sea shells!!!
My second card was for several challenges as well. The Shabby Tea Room Challenge is to make a card for Dad; the Cards For Men Challenge is to make a Father's Day Card; and I totally loved the sketch this week from Card Positioning Systems, CPS170!
I used the Our Daily Bread designs' set, "Dad", along with Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers"designer paper, Basic Grey Brads, May Arts Twill Ribbon, Spellbinders Labels Eight, and an EK Success Alpine Border Punch. This was a little tricky to layer the Labels die, but very fun to make!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!!!
