I don't normally combine them both into one post, but I'm putting them together this weekend because of the Sparkle Creations 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop! If you haven't had the chance to hop along yet, there's still time...and there are many gorgeous cards to check out along the way!
My first card is for the new challenge over at Drunken Stampers...our theme is "Christmas in July"...but with a Summer twist!
|supplies: image stamps (Surfing Oliver, Elf Oliver (hat) - Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps), paper (Crate Paper, Basic Grey), Copic markers, adhesive rhinestones, typed sentiment, sewing machine, foam tape.|
My second card is for Christmas Card Challenges, and our challenge this week is Emboss Resist...and I have to admit, I didn't know what it was until I saw it was on our list of challenges! But, it's a really awesome technique, and I learned about it on Splitcoast Stampers. If you don't know what it is either, and want to learn, definitely check out the tutorial!
Here's my card!
|supplies: patterned paper (Basic Grey), main image stamp (Holiday Anya - The Greeting Farm), sentiment stamp (Signature Christmas set - Papertrey Ink), border stamp (Nordic Winter - Waltzingmouse Stamps), VersaMark ink, white embossing powder. Brilliance Graphite Black ink, ribbon, adhesive rhinestones, Copic markers.|
Hope you enjoyed both of these cards and will play along in our challenges at Drunken Stampers and Christmas Card Challenges! To see what the DTs made and the details on each challenge, check out each blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
