Yellow and Black Challenge for SSPT Design Team

I've been so inspired by these paper purses created by others on the Cricut messageboard, particularly Kathy Orta, that I just had to give it a try. What a fun project!! Kathy's tutorials are awesome and if you haven't visited her blog, you really should check it out. (see link in award post below) Anyway, our challenge was to create a project using yellow and black. The black paper has the faux crocodile technique and this is the first time I have attempted that technique. It was fun! The rings are from the curtain department of a local big box store. I embossed the brads to match the rings.

Fruit Challenge for SSPT Design Team

Our challenge this time for the SSPT Design Team was to create a project using fruit. Since this summer season has me in a tropical frame of mind, this is my project. All Cricut cuts are from the LAB cart. It was especially challenging for me because I NEVER use bright colors and I just had to on this card. I also challenged myself not to add any bling to this one and that was really hard!!

Letter "S" Challenge for WSAB

This card is my project for the WSAB Letter "S" challenge. The challenge was to make any project with the letter S as the focal point. This card was a challenge for me partly because I am just a beginner with the Copic markers and used them to color my sweet little fairy. Alphas and top note are from Storybook cartridge.

Thanks for looking!

SSPT Bling challenge

Our most recent challenge for the SSPT design team was to create a project with lots of bling. I think this card "fills the bill". This is my first project using Copic markers and I still have a lot to learn, but it was fun. The image is from The image was colored with Copics, then I used Stickles, iridescent glitter glue, 4 rhinestones and Prima flowers. The dangling stars were part of a "treasure box" from Lacy Gilbertson. I thought they added the perfect touch to this little fairy.
