The Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are continuing over at Splitcoaststampers, and today’s card is playing along in three of them.

The “sand” in this beach scene was made by tearing four strips of cardstock, distressing it with ink, and layering.

There is a row of embossing across the top of the card.  I love this cute little folder.

I love everything miniature, so when I first saw these cute little clothespins I just had to have them!  Some sun rays were stamped and are peaking out from behind the onesie.

This second card is for one of the challenges.  This ole cat just cracks me up.

He was colored with some warm Copics.

Splitcoaststampers (SCS) is the world’s largest stamping community, with more than 400,000 members of which many are Fan Club Members.  Each year several of the past and the 12 current designers at SCS (known as the Dirty Dozen) have a week long challenge-fest (40 challenges this year!) known as “Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD).” These challenges are especially for the Fan Club Members to say “Thank You” for their support.

Today is Day #1 of Dare to Get Dirty, and I am hosting a challenge which you can see HERE.  (You must be a Fan Club Member to access.) The cards that I am sharing are example cards for my challenge.

Here’s a little tip.  I like to punch different colored circles to place behind buttons.  By doing this you can really change the look and “pop” of a button.

This second card will be for my father-in-law’s birthday.  My hubby was recently saying how much he appreciates the fact that his dad, even in financially thin times, had a small boat that the family would enjoy all summer long.  It made for some happy family times.  He can write his dad a note on the inside to that effect.

A little piece of twine adhered to the punched anchor adds a fun element and completes the card.

Made a card using one of the dies from the awesome Papertrey Ink “One Liners: Happy Die” set.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Besides cutting the die out of the plaid patterned paper, three cuts were made with white cardstock.  All four layers where glued together with the plaid piece on top.  It was then placed back into the cutout on the plaid paper.  Love the dry embossed look this creates.

Paper… beautiful patterned paper.  I can’t seem to walk past it at the craft store, so many many of them end up on my craft table.  And sometimes I even play with them!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

A close second to paper are pearls.  They have gotten harder to find as other bling products are taking center stage, but my love for them has not diminished.  Nope, not a bit.

Have a couple of flowery cards today.  This first one uses SU’s Birthday Blossoms.

After punching out the main flower I curled the petals slightly before adhering it to the main image panel.

This second card uses a stamp set with some matching dies.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The mason jar was stamped on the card base and colored.  A jar was then die cut using acetate which was adhered over the stamped and colored jar.  The tape can be hidden under the twine and sentiment so that it doesn’t show through the acetate.

Today’s cards use the adorable “Cheerful Critters” set by Stampin’ Up.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Had some fun playing with the sign that bear is holding up.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The “uncle” sentiment is held onto the main panel with a mini screw brad.  It can be rotated to reveal the happy birthday wish underneath.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Not sure if it was the critters that sold me on this set or this next sentiment.  Maybe a little bit of both.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

These faces and expressions just make me smile.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

On this last card I cut the sign off and decided that bear could hold up a banner instead.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Both the bear and the banner were fussy cut and adhered to a large die cut blossom which has been popped up on foam tape.
