All the Stars In the Sky...

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Festive Friday Challenge // #FF0118 ...An inspo list challenge!!  The way this challenge works...we are given a inspo list of 10 elements and our challenge is to use three of the 10 on our card.  This current list is in honor of World's Space Week.  I used stars (star sentiment, dies, and stencil), brads (star brads), and ink blending (on the edges of two stars and with my star stencils).  Happy World's Space Week!!

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT574 ...A sketch challenge!!  With a twist, the twist for this current challenge is to use a stencil.  I picked a star stencil that I rarely use...thanks for inspiring me to pull it out of the cabinet!!

Sisters Soaking Up the Sun


This weekend my sister and I met half way between our homes for a little getaway to celebrate our birthdays (mine in Aug and hers in 4 days).  We have had a great time in Cedar Key, FL...we have eaten our share of the local clams, walked on all the trails, taken a boat ride to an island that is only inhabited by mosquitoes, and chatted like to girls who haven't seen each other in a while!!  What a great weekend with my sweet sister!!

So, I made a card for today before I left home for this fun weekend and here is it....

1 card inspired by 3 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS398 ...A sketch challenge!!  Like Leah on the design team, I flipped the sketch.  My get well sentiment was too long to fit the other way.  I do wish I would have re-cut my circle because it ended up being too small.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc387 ...A technique challenge!!  CUT IT OUT!!  I did just that and hand cut my elephant and my sentiment!!

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI552 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  The cupcake photo for this current challenge gives us a safari animal theme.  I picked an elephant for my card!!

New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz & A Spooky CAS Card

 Today begins a new challenge at...

Card #1...
Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G305 ...A masculine challenge with some distressing!!  Today begins this new challenge and you have 2 weeks to play along.  
I used a sponge to distress the edges of my masculine (since I created this especially for a sweet uncle & used a masculine color scheme...that makes it masculine, right!??!) Christmas card.  What will you do to show distressing?? Torn edges, crackle embossing powder, sanded Core'dinations card stock, or distress ink...the possibilities are endless.  We look forward to seeing your creations!!  So hop on over to the Cardz 4 Guyz blog, gain some inspiration from the rest of the design team and then play along!! 
Distressing  #C4G305

2 additional challenges inspired this card...

Fusion // #9.15.22 ...A fusion challenge!!  Use the inspiration photo, or the sketch, or FUSE them together and use both.  For my card I used both...from the inspiration photo I pulled the bricks and the evergreen foliage as my inspiration.

INKspirational Challenge // #274 ...A photo challenge!! My inspiration from the photo was the twine dividing the two patterned papers.  I also included writing on the left hand side of my match the writing of the left side of the package in the photo.  Plus Christmas is a season of gift giving, so there is that connection as well.

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC125 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is SPOOKY!!  I love this owl from Stampin Up's retired Have A Hoot set.  Perfect for a spooky little card.

Just Us Girls // #JUG650 ...A color challenge!!  Green, Orange, and Brown are the colors called for in this challenge.  I used Stampin Up's Garden Green, Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie.

Just Add Ink // #JAI621 ...A sketch challenge!!  I kept the hexagon shapes called for even if the shape didn't matter.  I kept them small so that it would be a CAS card.  Clean and simple seemed perfect for this "boo to you" card.
