Curtain Call Challenge - Burlap Banner

I made this card for the current Curtain Call Challenge - Burlap Banner. Of course, I was inspired by the burlap banner and that orange color in the middle panel. I just cut some burlap into triangles, then cut some decorative paper into slightly bigger triangles and glued them together to make the banner, The green jute string is from Tim Holtz. The patterned papers are all from the Studio Calico - South of Market paper pad. I made the bird from a Media Mixage die. I outlined the card and the bird with an orange Stamper's Big Brush Pen. Finally I added the letters to the banner. It's a simple card, but it was really fun to make and I like how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my card.


Christmas Card Challenges #47

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have a photo inspiration challenge. I was inspired by the snow globe and the colors. I used my new Papertrey Ink Snow Globe Shaker Die. The trees are foam stickers I had in my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The snowflake dies came with the snow globe and I added round dots of Stickles around them to look like snow. I'm can't wait to see what you come up with this week for this fun challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the inspiration photo:

For my Day 5 Project I'm sharing a card I made using the Unity Halloween Bottle Cap stamp set. The paper are all from DCWV Halloween stack. This was a quick, easy and fun card to make. I just stamped several of the bottle cap images and a cut the out with a circle punch. Then I layered purple and black circles behind the images. I layered some paper for the background. I loved the sparkly green and thought the circle would pop off that bright green. Also, you can't really tell in the picture, but I adhered 3 of the bottle cap images to the card with foam tape so it had more dimension in person Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back tomorrow for Day 6!
