Shapetacular Card...

2That's the challenge for this week at Stamptacular! The rules are that you can create any shape card you like as long as it's out of the ordinary...NO SQUARE OR RECTANGULAR cards allowed this week!

I had a trillion and one ideas in my head but none that I could get to turn out they way I had imagined's what I finally settled on. Nothing spectacular but nonetheless...not a square or rectangle.

This card was inspired by a card I saw on the Hero Arts Blog made by Steff. However, please check out her card...mine doesn't even come close to the elegance and beauty she was able to create!

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #15

Well, another week of 2009 has come and gone and with last weeks challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we should all have a good start on our Christmas cards for this year, right?

Anyways, this week's challenge at Stamptacular is a card sketch! I LOVE sketches but this one was particularly challenging for me because our sponsor, Papirloftet, generously supplied each of the Design Team members with a kit full of goodies. The kit was fabulous and contained many different things such brads, flowers, charms, ribbon, prints and even cardstock but I was completely out of my element. I had never used the darling prints that they included and everything seemed to have a vintage feel to me. If you know anything about KNOW I have no clue what to do with vintage! LOL

So...I would pick the package up almost every single day since I've received it wondering what in the world I could create with it...

Although, not my favorite card I've ever made I do like it. I really enjoyed using the flowers and think that placing them the way I did, instead of just using ribbon or cardstock for the band in the sketch, turned out to be a nice effect. You can't really tell but I handstamped all the cardstock myself for an added detail hoping that it would give it an even more "antique" look.

What do you think? I know, I know...stick to my own style! LOL

Thanks for looking!

Christmas in July

That's the theme for this week's challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge...Can you believe Christmas is only six months away? I can't wait to start my shopping...I just love the holidays! Anyways, here's the card I created. I heat embossed the tree and the sentiment in silver embossing powder and then added crystals to the tree and the snowflakes I stamped in the background.
