Card Challenges for the Weekend!

It's been a while! I got back from Martha's Vineyard on Wednesday, it was a very cool place! Granted it rained from the day I drove there to the morning I left, but I still saw a lot and got some shopping done :)

I made two cards today for four challenges! So let's do it to it...

Cas-ual Fridays Challenge, emboss

The Shabby Tea Room challenge, use polka dots

My embossing polka dots!
I don't usually do black and white cards, elegant things are not really my thing. Anyway, this card will be submitted to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #16 which was to emboss. I texture embossed the black with Swiss Dots folder and rubbed white chalk to make the dots pop. I texture embossed the border, then also heat embossed the raised part with black. The 'Miss You' sentiment is also heat embossed with black.  All the Polka Dots in various forms are for the Shabby Tea Room challenge #75.

Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger

Mojo Sketch and Tuesday Trigger Colors
I love the color combination with this Tuesday trigger at Moxie Fab World, yellow and pink are always my favorite! I used the sketch from Mojo Mondays 204 to combine the colors. The pink paper is a very very pale soft pink, so it was hard to photograph. I also love the 'thank you' stamp (inkadinkado). I really like how this one turned out! The black flower is felt, with a dab of cotton candy stickles in the middle. The black glittered border is from K & Company, and the black and white corner piece is DCWV chipboard.

Thanks for lookin :) I hope you play along with these challenges!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have the same luck when it comes to rain. Whenever I plan something the rain must just feel the need to follow. I guess it can't figure out how to make its own plans hehehe! I'm glad you were still able to get some shopping in and see the sights. I like how the black and white card came out. The yellow, pink and black one is very cool. Take care, Lori

  2. Sorry you didn't have better weather for your holiday, I know that feeling! Love the combination of challenges, I think I need to try some new challenges, might give these a go!

  3. Great work!

  5. Too Bad that it rained at M. Vineyard! Hope you get another chance to go ...when the weather is good!

    I am not a paper crafter. I just look at the stuff and get scared!

  10. I love the yellow and pink thank you card! So beautiful! I'm intrigued by paper crafting, but it's kind of overwhelming.
