Today is the final day to upload cards for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoaststampers, and I have five cards to share!
This first card fits into four of the challenges: DTGD15DiniA, DTGD15vdutchr, DTGD15UnderstandblueA and DTGD15LMcAree.
This was the first time I’ve played at making a watercolor wash background and admit to using a big background stamp to help me with it. Once the stamp was inked, I spritzed on some water and then stamped.
This card is for the DTGDvasunshine challenge. It may be my first Christmas card for the year. Gotta start somewhere!
The star is popped up on foam tape for some fun dimension.
This third card is for the DTGD15StampmommaB challenge. It is what I call a “recycled” card to help my hubby out of an awkward situation! (See below.)*
Lots of foam tape on this image panel and the sentiment.
*Over the years with birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and other miscellaneous occasions my DH has accumulated quite a large number of handmade cards from me. And he doesn’t know what to do with them afterwards. He doesn’t want to toss them. He thinks this would hurt my feelings. But he really doesn’t have any place to put them either. So I decided to rescue him from his dilemma. After he has had them out for a week or two, I take them back and recycle them. He is TOTALLY okay with this. In fact, I think he is relieved! lol It is especially fun to dress up the earlier cards. Below is the original of the card above. The new version is already off to my DBIL. And he can do whatever he wants with it afterwards with no worries.
Original card on Splitcoastampers..
Card four is for the DTGD15JeanneS challenge.
This gears die seemed like the perfect companion for this Graphic 45 patterned paper. The large butterfly is popped up on foam tape for some depth and dimension.
Made a trip to my local craft store over the weekend and found lots of NFL goodies. Had to have some! Will be sending these fun stamps off to my Tucson Seahawk loving son and family. Kinda hard for them to find much of this sort of thing there. lol
Made a card for fun with some of the designer Seahawk paper to go along with it all. Added a little football brad to finish off the fun.
This card will be playing along in the DTGD15StampmommaA and DTGD15fattire7 challenges.
Hand drew a frame around the image of Seattle and added a “12” flag at the top of the Space Needle.
Hope that you had a chance to play in the fun DTGD challenges over at Splitcoaststampers, too!
