Two Cards – Bo Bunny and Paper Secrets

Bo Bunny tends to post a card challenge on their blog about every other week or so and this time, they posted a really great card sketch on July 30th which is due tomorrow evening (Aug 14, 2011). Since I’m still learning to make cards, I figured this would be a great opportunity to work on a fun challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Timepiece pp
BB Timepiece diecut stickers
BB Timepiece chipboard
American Crafts solid cardstock base
Distress Inks

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive runner

This is the fab sketch they posted:

Next is a card I created for the Paper Secrets Card Challenge with a twist. The twist was to use chipboard, bling/pearls and ribbon.

I entered one of the layouts I’d created using Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate papers and trim into the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge and you get a bonus entry when you use the scraps for a card. Since I got the fab Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate Papers from the Paper Secrets store (they have a 20% off offer right now that ends tomorrow at midnight. Use coupon code take20 at checkout), I figured the scraps from my layout would be perfect for this card! Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate pp
WP Let’s Celebrate trim
WP trendsetter chipboard button
Kaisercraft rhinestones
Distress Ink
American Crafts cardstock base

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Zap Dots

Here’s the pagemaps sketch for the card challenge:

Firedog layout – Sketchy Thursdays Challenge Entry

Here’s Matthew when he was 2 years old. His preschool was having a unit on Community workers and had a Fireman visit the school. He had a blast checking out the fire engine. They even let him get inside! As you can see, the teachers went all out. 😀 He came home with his little paper hat with the ears and a little black painted nose. It was so cute! By the time I grabbed the camera, he’d already rubbed some of the paint off of his face, but you get the idea. This layout was based on the Sketchy Thursdays 3.31 sketch:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Timepiece 12×12 cardstock paper
BB Midnight Frost cardstock papers
BB Midnight Frost diecut sticker
BB Timepiece Chipboard
BB Timepiece Dimensional Stickers
May Arts ribbon
Tattered Angle Shimmer Mist
Shimmerz paint
Inksssentials white opaque pen
Sakura Pigma brown brush pen
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry Liquid
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac

Tools:

Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge/Border Punch
