Hi, everyone. Happy Sunday!
First of all, there's some blog candy to award! Donna Hanley is the winner of the $10 gift certificate to Really Reasonable Ribbon. Linda (of Creepin' Along) and Jen M. are the winners of the $5 certificates. Congratulations, ladies... and thanks for being such loyal readers!
If each of you would e-mail your e-mail addresses to me at cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com, I will touch base with Bonnie at RRR. :)
A New Blog... at least new to me
Bobbi e-mailed me to tell me about her Saturday Shout-Out from Shopping Our Stash. First of all, congrats, Bobbi, on this well-deserved recognition!
Secondly, this challenge sounded like fun. This week's challenge is to create your own embellishment using things from your stash. So, I thought I'd give this a try... and the card below with the hand-crafted corsage was born.
|Stampin' Up! dp; Distress Ink core|
TPC Studio sentiment heat embossed in Inkadinkado gold
Spellbinders Nestabilities dies
Ellen Hutson ribbon; Paper Studio brads
Marvy circle punch; foam pop-up adhesives
Talk about using things from your stash. For starters, the dp is garage-sale-find Stampin' Up! and the orange cardstock is scrap Distress Ink core. The scalloped dies were a gift from a friend, the brads were clearance, and the ribbon was free with an order from Ellen Hutson. And, the sentiment stamp and circle punch have been in the menopause room for as long as I can remember. :)
One last thing about this little card, the flower technique was taught in Thursday's SU class. Thanks, Bernadette!
All That Glitters...
The card below was inspired by this week's OWH Midweek Throwdown to make a card featuring a light source.
|Pink Paislee dp; cardtock: Distress Ink core and stash peach|
Stampin Up! Celestial Skies stamp set; stash ribbon
sequins adhered with Glossy Accents
Even though the card is golden in appearance, making it was actually bittersweet. The ribbon is stash ribbon that I purchased at a former favorite LSS Pizazz It!, and the paper was purchased at my last trip to Archivers.
On a happy note, the sun stamp (and inside stamped image) is from a retired (1995?) Stampin Up! set that was a gift from a friend of a friend. And, I'm really liking that folded over scrap strip of ribbon -- it seems to add a little interest without adding bulk. :)
Today's Any Hero Card
Today's card was inspired by OWH Sketch #213 and my newly-arrived Hero Arts stamp set. I was soooo glad that the sketch had a perfect element for one of these new stamps. :)
|Authentique Pride; Distress Ink core fired brick; Bazzill admiral; stash light gray|
Hero Arts stamp set; small stars from unidentified corner rounder
heat embossing in Inkadinkado gold
Congrats to Ann for her winning entry for the February Words 2 Scrap By challenge! The March challenge goes live on March 1.... and the title is, "And the Oscar Goes To...".
Have a great week! As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
