Two challenge cards today!

This is my card for the Cinema Saturday Challenge, #19. The movie this week is "Emma" with Gwyneth Paltrow.

I have never seen this movie. I took my inspiration from one of the movie posters where Gwyneth was holding a teacup. Part of the challenge was to incorporate dots; I used the dotted ribbon and the pink brad.

Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Stamp: Stitched background
Accessories: Metallic gold marker, dotted ribbon, primas, pink brad

This is my card for Gabby Green Eye's Saturday Challenge. BLOGC3
Gabby posted a heart template with instructions to create a basket of flowers.
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Rubber Stampede (basketweave), Clearly Wordsworth (sentiment), Kinen background
Accessories: Dollar Store flower, dew drops, Chocolate Chip marker

Sympathy Card

This is definitely the type of card I don't like to make, but unfortunately, sometimes a sympathy card is needed. This is for a sister Wish-RAK'er on Splitcoast.

I thought it was appropriate to use items that I received through Wish RAK - the image, inside sentiment, and round tab punch. The image was watercolored using Stampin' Up! markers

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Kiwi Kiss, chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon black
Stampset: Serene Spring, Close as a memory
Accessories: SU! markers, watercolor pen, round tab punch, self-adhesive flat backed pearl

This is a picture of the inside of the gate-fold card.

New Challenge on Splitcoast!

Woohoo! There is a new weekly challenge at Splitcoast! It is the CAS Challenge (CAS = "Clean and Simple"); this week's inspiration piece was flannel posted in the thread.

This card is my take on the butterfly flannel. I used the front of a 3x3 notecard I had made as the focal image. I stamped the card base with SU!'s Polka Dot background stamp. Talk about quick and easy! This card was done in about 5 minutes!

Ink: Purely Pomogranite, Craft White
Stamps: Happy Heart Day, Polka Dot BG
Accessories: ribbon, sakura glitter pen, ticket corner punch, scalloped circle punch, 1-1/4" circle punch, white gel pen
