Share time :)

Yesterday was a "hobby day" with the bf. It was so nice to relax and scrapbook until it was dark outside and our friends came to check on us to make sure we hadn't fallen into a black hole. Ha.

1. This is Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #48. Love the colors but had mucho trouble with this card at first. I adore how it came out, though. I used the same technique that Kristina used on "Finally Friday" two days ago, but I did it all the way across and covered the staples with the white ribbon. Love the layered ribbon!

Supplies: CS- The Paper Studio (white) and Keeping Memories Alive (Blue), Flowers- Prima, Marker- ZIG, Brads- Making Memories, Ribbon- Offray (white) and unknown (brown), Foam Adhesive(under flowers)- EK Sucess, Other- Staples.

2. This is a challenge for Amy Rysavy's Sketch #56. I had a hankering for making another card, and my brother's birthday is in a couple days, so this is for him. I think it's funny how I automatically used practically the same colors as the Color Inspiration challenge. One track mind? Ha.

Supplies: Cardstock- The Paper Studio (white), Patterened Paper- KI Memories Love, Elsie (green) and My Mind's Eye (blue polka dot), Frame- Making Memories, Chipboard Letter- Pressed Petals, Brads- Making Memories, Ink- Stazon by Tsukineko, Ribbon- Offray.

3. I'll share the layout I made later this week. It's super cute!

4. Come back later this week for a GIVEAWAY. Because I feel like it. :) Now, what should I give you? Go ahead and add me to google reader, follow me on twitter, or sign up to be a follower (over to the right side of the page) so you don't miss it!

Thanks for stopping by!



P.S. GO UNC! :)

Brit, your cards are so much fun! I adore that chipboard "A", and love that you re-created Kristina's technique using staples (brilliant).

Thanks for the kind words on my blog, by the way! :)

Great cards ! I specially love the one with the flowers !!

Rachael Knight said...

Wow! So much going on there on your Kristina challenge card, but it really works! I must have a go at that ribbon technique myself one of these days. I can be a little stingy with using that much ribbon though, I confess! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Randee E said...

Very pretty cards! Love that brown ribbon treatment. I'm going to need to try that!

Dana said...

Great cards, both of them!! Especially love the frame you draw around the first one!
