Hi, sweets! I'm working my butt off, trying to finish ahead my DT assignments for the next week... why, we're moving this weekend!! I couldn't be more excited, but as the decision came quite unexpectedly, you can imagine I'm also in a state of panic, trying to tie all ends :)
To make things even more nutty, I found out yesterday that I'm joining the Spellbinders 2012 Design Team!! Thank you so much for all your good wishes and words of encouragement!! I'm sooo ready for this :)
I wanted to pop in quickly with two projects I made for The Craft's Meow sponsored challenges. There are yummy prizes up for grabs!
The first challenge is at Casual Fridays (CFC39), and it's about paper piecing. It finishes soon, so make haste if you'd like a chance at scooping up some TCM goodness :)
I made this simple card with Happy Owlentine's Day and All You Need Is Love stamp sets.
Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Blushing Bride), Canson (red); stamps: The Craft's Meow (Happy Owlentine's Day, All You Need Is Love); ink: Memento (Angel Pink, Lady Bug), Versafine (Onyx Black), Versa Color (Cinnamon); ribbon: SU!; rhinestones: My Mind's Eye
I also took the sketch from Card Patterns and the colour inspiration from The Scrapbook Boutique below:
The next challenge has only started recently and you've still got a couple of days to play along. It's The Ribbon Carousel challenge #40 (RCC40, find the sketch below the card), and the offering for a lucky player is a stamp set of their choice.
For my card, I inked up Lovely Labels 18 and Sent With Love, both by Nina Brackett.
Supplies: cardstock: Canson (cream, pink), SU! (Baja Breeze); paper: October Afternoon; stamps: The Craft's Meow (Sent With Love, Lovely Labels 18); ink: Memento (Angel Pink, Rich Cocoa), Distress Ink (Pumice Stone); ribbon: May Arts; Nestabilities Labels18/Shapeabilities Holly Motifs; buttons; Sprinkles: AnnaBelle Stamps; Cuttlebug embossing folder (Victoria)
Below is the sketch, along with the yummy colours of cQc#124, that I also incorporated on my card:
I've got to run now, but I will be back with more TCM designs soon enough. Starting on Thursday, the Design Team will be revealing the fabulous new release - won't you join us?
