SSZ Card Challenge - Make it Quick

You had to make a card under 15 minutes (including the time you had to find the materials....YIKES)!

I had just bought a bunch of co-ordinating Recollections products from Michaels (washi tape, sparkly tape, pinwheels, labels). So that helped a LOT!

SSZ Card Challenge - Silhouette

Over at ScrapShotz, the card challenge was to do a card using a silhouette.  I got inspired and made a BUNCH!

The top three were done using Tim Holtz distress ink on white cardstock as the background.  The stamp sets belong to a friend so I don't know who made them.

These two were done using a stamp set from Close to My Heart.  The first one used shimmery watercolour paint and the second used Tim Holtz distress ink as waterpaint on watercolour paper.

The twine used on two of the cards is We R Memory Keepers.

CTMH Stamp of the Month - February - Balloon Animals

Our CTMH Consultant did up this cute card set for us to put together using this stamp set.

Cards sent out in March

On the two elephant cards, one is using the negative of the diecut. 

The star is actually gold metallic paper (it looks green).

Learned at a Craftsy Class (in 2015) how to use salt on watercolour paint to make the "water" look more realistic. Stamp set by: Joy!

Cards Sent out in February

Done for a Craftsy Class in 2015.  The base paper is actually embossed vellum with a little pink ink coloured on the backside.

Note: on this one I added the number 30 and a gem in the middle of the black flower.
