I am so happy to be the Guest Designer
this week, not at one but at two fabulous challenge blogs... City Crafter Challenge Blog and Tuesday Throwdown. If you love to do challenges... you will love these two challenge blogs!!!
Here is my Guest Designer card for CCCB
for week #71 that the talented Hostess Ros has set as "Best of Friends".
Again I called on my versatile
Pixie Kits for supplies and used the Girl's Paperie Vintage Whimsy and American Crafts pink cardstock. I added a scrap of My Mind's Eye from my stash.
Embellishments include Recollections
mini roses, I Am Roses crocheted flowers and pink satin ribbon twined with pearls from Hobby Lobby.
I added a tiny Melissa Frances frame
that is holding a snippet of the GP DP and scattered a few pearls about... and of course... my image of the "Best of Friends".
Now here is my Guest Designer
card for Tuesday Throwdown #63 which is all about "Dimension and Texture"...
I just adore the fabulous papers
from October Afternoon so I teamed a couple up with three colors of cardstock... white, green and brown.
For the image, I chose this lovely
jam of jam with strawberries from MyGrafico (ideal with this DP). I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks... Worn Lipstick, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo. The die cuts are made from Spellbinders Lacey Circles and sit atop a paper doily.
I did a touch of machine stitching
for more texture and added some ruffled brown trim from Webster's Pages, Recollections mini roses and bling...
and an I Am Roses apple blossom
with a few leaves punched with Martha Stewart's Oak Leaf Punch.
Please check out these great
challenge blogs. You'll be inspired by their Design Teams and challenged to new levels... besides having fun!!!
