There are 2 cards today, so be sure you scroll down to see them both! :)
I never make square cards! But yet I found myself making them today for two sketch challenges and I like how they turned out! I participated in this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge and combined it with today's "Ways to Use it" challenge on SCS. The SCS challenge was to use a charm on your card. I knew I had a couple of charms stashed away somewhere because I used to make jewerly. So after some digging, I did find a few heart charms to use. I also incorporated the Caardvark's theme and made it a bridal card.
Here's the Mojo Monday sketch...
And here's the card I created...
Stamps: Heartfelt Hits 1 (Gina K), sentiment from Simple Little Things (PTI)
Paper: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, White, retired SU dp (Brocade Backgrounds, I think)
Ink: Momento Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: heart charm, Classic Circle Nestabilities, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, word window punch, modern label punch, scalloped corner punch, Spica clear glitter pen (on dress), markers, dimensionals
I am totally addicted to my new scalloped corner punch, if you can't tell! I think I've used it on every card I've made since I bought it!
The other card I created if for the "Dare to Get Dirty" event that is taking place on SCS over the next few days. I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown and the sketch from the Dare to Get Dirty challenge.
Here's my card...
I used my SU pastels to color the butterfly and sealed it with hairspray. The ribbon was retired a few years ago from SU but I still have a large stash of it from a ribbon share.
Stamps: Stipple Butterfly
Paper: Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, White, retired SU dp (Enchante)
Ink: Momento Black
Accessories: SU pastels, hairspray, Classic Circle Nestabilities, lavender organdy ribbon, brads, scalloped corner punch, swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals
That's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and looking! Have a terrific day!!! :)
