A Few Challenges with the Mess on my Desk

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are all enjoyed your weekend.

Today I am here with a couple cards I created using the mess on my desk and some scraps.

First I created a card for Freshly Made Sketches #319  using the "Lounging Wine Lady" from Inky Antics. I have to admit, I am kind of obsessed with wine stamps and had to add this one to my collection. The funny thing is that I really DO NOT love wine. I prefer margaritas IF I drink, which is not all that often.

I had previously colored in the wine lady with Copic markers while I was watching TV with my husband. I pulled her out and then layered her over a patterned paper scrap and a piece of MFT Sno Cone card stock that I had cut in half and folded to make a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" card.

Here is the sketch I used as my inspiration:

When I looked at the sentiments on the stamp set, I decided to use this one because I could use a strip for the last line.

My next card I created a birthday card using the "Spring Chicken" stamp set by Art Impressions. Once again, I had colored in the chickens months ago and did nothing. When I saw the sketch for TGIF Challenge #142, I knew that I had to use this. I am also entering this into Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.


I decided to flip the sketch so that the white panel would be on the bottom.

I adhered orange patterned paper over the background of the card and used a Lawn Fawn "Stitched Scalloped Border" die to cut the blue, scalloped border.

I then die cut my chicken panel with the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Journaling Card" die and adhered it over the scalloped border to the card front.

My last step was to add the stamped sentiment and then use a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen, as well as some Glossy Accents and glitter glue to spruce some of the little elements up.

Well that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
