A few challenges

Morning all! Finally, the right kind of challenges!! (As opposed to the stressful kind!!) I had some time to myself yesterday, so I made a few cards for a challenge over at CHF. Kim Hughes is one of the AMAZING stamp artist and card designers over at Cornish Heritage Farms forum and there is a Kim Hughes Blitz challenge going on this weekend. Saturday's challenge was called "Wonderful Wings". We had to use one of her "winged" images in our card. I made two for this challenge...Here's the first:

You can find a tutorial for this card on Sharni and Clair's blog, as well as a few other places. I've always wanted to make a Onesie card and finally decided yesterday was the day!! I used all Prism Cardstock and Kim Hughes' Cute curls and Scripty word sets. The eyelets are actually a deep pink color, although they came out red in the photo. I used Mahogany Distress Ink by Ranger.

Here's my second try; it's a card for my DH for our 25th anniversary in November...inside says "...all over again... Happy 25th!!" (Shhhh...don't tell...I'm hiding it 'til November). These images are from Kim Hughes' Fall Silhouettes collection at Cornish Heritage Farms. The base of the card is actually a clear acrylic that CHF sells. IT IS THE BEST AND THICKEST ACRYLIC OUT THERE!! It comes in 8.5 x 11 and if you want a good product to stamp on...get some! You can make two A2 cards per sheet! This card was inspired by another designer I admire: Lisa Silver. Check out Kim's and Lisa's blogs for inspiration!! It's guaranteed!!

It's crazy humid and hot here in NY, so stay cool, won't you?? Have a grand week!!

PS Also check out what's going on over at Clear Artistic releases that are beautiful!
