3 Challenges and a sneak peek... (MOJO93, CBC68, CCC46)

So I finally got a chance to stamp again. I have been working like crazy on organizing my space! I am almost happy with how I have things...ha ha. We just returned from a weekend in beatiful Allegany State Park too. My girls love it there. Nothing like a little camping trip to kick off the summer. Speaking of summer here is the first card for tonight. I made this for 2 different challenges: Mojo Monday 93 and Cupcake Craft 46 (which sadly is going to be ending). So, this card uses the Mojo sketch this week (Mojo93), and is a summer theme for the Cupcake challenge (CCC46). I used the TAC an udder birthday stamp set to create this. I colored the image with watercolor crayons, and added some black liquid applique to the cow's spots (which is kinda hard to see in the photo). I layered the cow on TAC DSP Gentle Beginnings (which is retired by the way), and layered that on yellow CS. I used a boarder punch to attempt to make a square. I wasn't thrilled with how the corners came out, but I am still getting used to making the square with the punch. I stamped the sentiment on yellow and punched out with an oval punch. Then I layered that onto a blue CS scalloped oval. I added some white ribbon, and some corridinating colored brads. This is my next project. I made this for the Belli Blog Challenge. (CBC68). The challenge was a red, white, and blue theme. I used TAC Ice cream stamp set, and TAC Trendy Greetings for the sentiment. I used a brayer with real red to create the background. My red ink was a little more moist then I had expected, so it kinda got all over me...lol. Well, since I punched the stars out after I used the brayer, I kinda got finger prints all over them. To compensate, I decided to rub my fingers all over them to create a sponged look. I kinda like the way it turned out.



My last card tonight is a little "sneak peek" of my Christmas card for this year. I used TAC snowman nativity stamp set. Here is a peek...I will give more details about this card another time...when I get more of them done.



Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your 4th of July!!!!
