UseIt! challenge #14

thoughts & prayers ~

This week's UseIt! challenge is brought to us by Joanne.

She is challenging us to use the following: 1) the color pink 2) some scallops 3) a tag.
How easy & fun is that?!

a close up ~

I used a scalloped edge card/envelope set by Martha Stewart. Some old Basic Grey pp, including a tag & some primas w/bling.
For the sentiment, I cut apart a long Creative Cafe sticker.

Thanks for lookin' and thanks to Rae & Joanne!

Use It! Challenge #13 ~

There's a fun challenge over at the UseIt! blog, hosted this week by Carla.

1) Use 4 pps - scraps!, 2) Use die-cuts, 3) Use bling.

Here's my take on Carla's challenge.

I used a bazzill base, Fancy Pants (2), K&Co., Ki Memories pp.
The die cuts are K&Co. and an oldie from 3 Bugs in a Rug.
Prima Say it w/Crystals for the bling. A little inking & paper tearing.
The ribbon is from my stash...taken from a big bag of pieces.

Thanks to Carla & Rae Barthel over @UseIt! Fun stuff!!

2 Sketches 4 You ~

2S4U is having their first Annual Ultimate Card Showdown!

What an exciting time for Laura & Kazan!

Here is my take on the contest sketch.

I used 2 pages from a Cosmo Cricket mini book to make this card.
The weight of it is perfect...not too bulky, but sturdy enough to stand on it's own.

It's hinged together at the top with s*e*i ribbon woven through two eyelets.
The pp is Fancy Pants, ticket is Creative Cafe. I stamped the "in YOU" with some Technique Tuesday letter stamps.
I embossed a brown brad before adding to the Prima.
Bumblebee bling is Basic Gray & ribbon is from my stash.

I had a lot of fun making this card.
Thanks to Laura & Kazan for their rockin' cool 2S4U blog!
