Pick a Favorite, Win a RAK

I'm still been slacking off with my blog posts this week, so I figured I quickly show what I've been up to for the past few days....

This above images is from the SCS challenge WT207 "Frugal Finds" on Thursday. I covered a tin from Arizona Ice Tea with paper from the new Basic Grey Porcelain 12x12 pack from Paper Addiction. I love the zig-zag stripe on this paper and of course the pretty, spring colors in the line. Since my daughters are always looking for quick birthday presents for their friends I added a little Happy Birthday tag to the container. I think it'll be perfect to fill with chocolate, candies, or cookies.



This card is a one-layer card that I made for the Crafty Secret's challenge this week on SCS. I hardly ever make one layer cards, but this one is a bit different from the normal because I used double sided dp for the card base. I raided my stash of stuff that never gets used and found a vintage looking sticker from Melissa Frances to use. I stamped flourishes and scallops from the Crafty Secrets Cherub set. The flower is a retired lace prima collection - my stash is almost out!!




The Poppy card was made for SCS limited supply challenge and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. The challenge was to use vellum - so I stamped the poppies on vellum, and colored them in with copic markers. Then attached the vellum layer with the stamping and colorin on the reverse, so the image shows through with a slightly muted look. The bottom of the image was punched with my threading water punch from Fiskars (one of my favorite all time punches).

The last project to show was made today for the Inspiration challenge. I love this challenge because you can do anything that the image inspires! I used a stamp set from Gina K for the main image and sentiments. The flowers are stickers from K&Company which I've had in my stash forever so I finally used up the rest of the package on this card. I acutally CASED this layout from a card on page 47 of the new Papercrafts Stamp It magazine... I hardly ever CASE!


Now the challenge for YOU! Pick which of these cards/projects is your favorite and leave it in a comment for me. You'll be entered to win one of these cards as my Blogcandy/RAK for the week. Double you're chances of winning if you participated in any of these challenges and want to leave a link to your challenge card using Mr. Linky gadget here....






I just love that little linky gadget! It gives me the excuse to visit the blog and galleries of the people that read my blog and are fellow challenge addicts like me! Thanks for reading!

I can't believe I'm first to reply. I love all the cards and projects but I definitely love the frugal find the best. I have a collection of frugal finds in my craft room and I'm always hoping to get inspiration for a use for them. Thanks for that inspiration!

I pick all of them!!! With your creative and inspiring projects...how do you just pick one? I'm going to have to pick the first one...frugal find is just so cool. Thanks for a chance at one of your handmade project. I would love to be the lucky stampers to have some of your inspiring MOJO setting in my stamp room.

Your flourishes vellum card is just gorgeous! I love the muted look! I've been meaning to try that with my copics forever, after seeing your gorgeous card, I'm determined to give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration!

I explain to him I am recycling and going GREEN!!! I cant pick I love all of your crds buyt if you make me pick I'll say the Vintage one

DeniseLynn said...

What pick just one!? How can I do that? Everything is so nice and has it's own "freshness" to it. I love the tin of course but since I have a love of vellum and have been wanting to play with it but haven't lately I will pick the beautiful poppies as my first choice. Now you've truly inspired me to go find my vellum.

Melody said...

Wow, you have been busy! All your cards are wonderful, unique from each other, and creative. I will have to try stamping on vellum. On a side note, I just got my first order from Paper Addiction. Great, fast service!

The tin is stunning! I save all kinds of empty containers to reuse but mine never look like that. And the Easter card is lovely--it makes me want to start on my Easter cards.

Aunt T said...

As usual all of your projects are awesome.  If I have to pick a favorite I'd say it would be Frugal Finds.  With our PC crashing two weeks ago I've missed so many challenges.  Now that we're back online with the new PC I need to play catch up!Teresa

How can I choose. I love everything you do. It's a hard choice between the Poppies and the decorated Tin. I'm going to choose the tin ... but wait ... no, definitely the tin.
