Have you ever participated in the Card Chain Challenge? I have been playing along for a number of months now. It's so much fun sending and receiving lovely cards from new friends. Even though I get them mailed off just fine, I can't seem to manage getting the cards blogged on here! Arrrgh...crazy LIFE!! This month I am determined to get my card blogged in time for the reveal!!! :)
Each month we are given a bunch of options for colors, sketch, theme, products, and techniques so there is a lot of freedom on what kind of card you make.....you can use one or more of the options.....as many as you want.
The April themes were:
Colour Palette Option
(Exact matching is not
(Orient as desired.)
Theme Options: Small Furry Animals/Funny/Friendship
Product / Technique Options: Die Cut/Paint
I chose the color palette (jade, lavender, and walnut), small furry animals (hedgies are sort of furry...lol), funny, and die cuts.
I used a couple of NBUS products. The super-adorable Hedgehog stamp and die set was part of a humongously generous prize package from Holley Barnhart. (THANKS, Holley!!!) The leaf frame die was part of prize from Kat Scrappiness. It is my new favorite...I love it so much!! (THANKS, Kat!!!) This card went to Linda W. in MN on the Card Chain.
I wanted to use something for texture on the little hedgehog. I found a scrap of burlap covered paper in my stash that was perfect. I rubbed my Distress Ink pad over it to darken it.
Supplies used include:
Kat Scrappiness - Foliage Frame A2 die
Pink & Main Scallop Waves die set (retired)
Recollections - Hedgehog Lookin' Sharp stamp and die set
Clear Dollar Stamps - Elegant Accents Tag Frames (retired)
Versafine ink - Vintage Sepia
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
DCWV glitter cardstock
Scraps of burlap paper, and patterned paper
Serendipity Stamps - Mixed Wood-Grain Sequins (retired)
Spectrum Noir markers
Sakura Glaze Gel Pen
