Final ETBKS Challenge!

I’m so sad to see that Everything But The Kitchen Sink will no longer be posting challenges! I always loved to play along with them 😦

In Honor of this fabulous blog I decided to do two entries for their final post:

The challenge this week is Textures! I LOVE playing with all kinds of textures. For my first card I was inspired for a coastal Christmas card with my fabulous texture May Arts ribbon. It reminds me of sea grass or a net in the sea. I started off with some Kraft card stock (PTI) and ran it through my Sixxix with a swirl emboss.

Then I used some Stampin Up designer paper to pull all the colors together. I stamped the cute sea sentiments from an old SU stamp set and colored with copics to match. I finished the card off with some clear glitter and applied it with a Martha Stewart Glue pen.

For my second card I used some more dry embossing with a Papertrey Ink die. I love this depth the paper creates since it was actually just a scrap from the first card! I am all about using every piece of card stock…save the planet baby!
More stamps & sentiments from the same Stampin Up stamp set for another “fishie” themed card. I love that little guy! Happy Holidays everyone…now to start MASS creating my 20+ cards I need to mail out…oh boy…

    THESE are sooooooo much funnnnnnnnn! Gosh, I was sorry to hear the EBTKS girls had to shut down. I can only imagine that running a bi-monthly or more regular challenge must be grueling… I never got to play as much as I wanted, but I sure loved it when I did! These cards are completely drool-worthy! XOXOXO!
