I haven't posted on my blog now for two weeks, guess I've just been too busy creating and doing the "real life" to get to it! Anyway, these were my projects for the the last two weeks at Practical Scrappers!
This was my project for the Stamp Challenge:
*what I did*
On this LO, I used the Stampin' Up 4x5 "Canvas" background stamp to create the matting behind her photo. Then I stamped with my Versa Mark then heat embossed with black embossing powder. I also used another Stampin' Up stamp (from Looks Like Spring Collection) to create the background on my yellow cardstock.
This was the my project from the Ribbon Challenge:
*what I did*
Recognize those papers? I was being practical and immediately used the scraps left over from my button LO project last week to create my card for the ribbon challenge. I went a little ribbon crazy this week and you might have a hard time telling. First, I used blue gross grain ribbon to create some separation down the center that she then hand-stitched some red floss down the center to draw the eyes in. Then I used some red yellow checked self-adhesive ribbon to create a layer of matting behind the digi stamp, "Love Ewe", from our Semptember sponsor, Robyn's Fetish. Next, I used that same ribbon to create a bow in the center of my card. And finally, I balanced off the left corner with a ribbon flower she created with the two different ribbons I used on this card. Was that enough ribbon for you?
Just a reminder, this week we start an entire new format at Practical Scrappers and I cannot wait! You can head over there already to see the new look, but tomorrow will bring about the change to a "magazine style". Be sure to check out our "Current Calls" page (last tab) to see what's coming up! Hope to see all of you submitting!
Thanks for stopping in!
