Can't believe we are on week 5 already!! I hope you all are enjoying it. This week we want you to use either a summer theme or bright colors. For this card, I went with both. As soon as we got the challenge theme, I knew which digi and papers I wanted to use. The digi is "Kate With a Frog", which you can only find at Kelley's Kids, on Stitchy Bear Stamps and the papers are from Heather Jolly called "Sherbert". You can find all of Heather's papers here. The best part of all is that all of Heather's paper kits are free to download!!
I used the "Daisy Patch" Shapabilities die to and added some pink and red distress ink to it so that it would bring it out a little. I also added stickles to the embossed flower parts. Then I cut out Kate and put her on another paper inside the Daisy Patch frame. All the embellies are from the same kit as the papers that I printed and cut out.
And we have a surprise for you!!
On the last Wednesday of every month, Sassy Studio Designs will be sponsoring us and is giving one lucky winner your choice of 4 digi's!! How cool is that??
Here's my second card, following this weeks theme (the bright colors part), using a Sassy Studio image. The digi is called "Back to School Brittany". Once again, the papers are from Heather Jolly. I just can't seem to get enough of her kits!! This kit is called "Punkberry" and it just came out, so go check it out.
I used 4 different papers from the pack. On the first layer, I used a pink paper that I distressed and ink the edges in pink. The second layer, I also distressed. The next paper I used the "Crown Circles" Nesties die on and the last paper is the butterfly. I cut out a couple of them and stacked them, folding the top one up and added stickles. All the embellies are also from this kit. I added the "Happy Birthday" saying using the Picasa program. I cut a small slit in the envelope and stuck in the metal heart. It has a hole at the top to add a jump ring and chain for a great present.
Ha ha..I just realized while posting this, that both cards are birthday. That was totally accidental...
