http://tracyshappyplace.blogspot.com/ had a good challenge for us.. we had to use Patterned Paper ( or Designer Paper) as the focal point of the cards this month. I don't have a lot of Christmas PP that would fit the bill, so I had to make due. I used some poinsettia paper, and added some ribbon and an eyelet to fulfill the 2 embellishment requirement. I do wonder if I should have made standard cards, rather than the 4 x 4 inch square, but I didn't have enough of the paper to do the required 5 cards.

Here are a couple of birthday cards I did. The Tulips are from Lazarworks studio. I inked them in Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss, then stamped on pale pink c/s. that was corner rounded and layered on some embossed Doodlebug c/s that I've had sitting around. I inked the embossed parts with Mellow Moss ink. I rounded the corners as well. This was all done on a base pink c/s, again, with the rounded corners... Kristina Werner is really rubbing off on me.
The second card is a sketch, and I can't remember which one. I suspect it's a Mojo Monday sketch, but I am not sure. I used a funky patterned paper on Apricot Appeal c/s base, corners rounded on both. I then took a piece of the Doodlebug embossed c/s and use a strip of it upside down on the flower paper. I added some sticker ribbon to the top and bottom of it. I rounded two corners and added two green flower brads (Making Memories). I cut a circle out of Apricot Appeal, and stamped a HA butterfly in pixie pink ink. I added a flower brad, then foam mounted it onto the flower paper.
This is one of the few cards that I've made that has NO STAMPING on it. I used a beautiful flower from some patterned paper for the focal point, used a rub on for the words, then just did the corners with a layer of Cool Caribbean, then mounted it on a black square, then mounted it on a glittery hot pink c/s. I added some sheer pink ribbon and some charms.
Well, I got to do some creating today... before my kid took sick and I had to finish baking the quadruple batch of cookies. I did the Mojo133 card sketch again, and I was pleased with the result. I also used Hero Art stamps (Hello from Essential messages, butterfly from Antique engravings) to do the card. It's quite different from my first card in the challenge, but I like it.

Hi!! I finally did a card that I'm going to try and upload. It's for Mojo133 challenge, and the C4C31 challenge in one card. I used Kraft cardstock as my base, then used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp HA Friend definition on it. I then layered 3 patterned papers together to make a couple of blocks, which I put on the card. I used some of the bright circle PP with a pink paper as a background for the ribbon. I used a Nesties die cut, which I distressed with Distress inks in Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick. I stamped the HA butterfly (antique engravings) with Broken China ink. The Hello word (HA) was done in Cool Caribbean. Once the card was assembled, I added some light green bling to the card.

Now that I know I have two blogs, it's a matter of getting them harmonized into one blog.
