Okay, my last post for today, I promise! I just got off the phone with my friend Shawn and we were both lamenting that, with all the stampin' stuff we have, we had no charms! And we needed charms for today's SCS Challenge! I had just made a polyshrink charm for the Color Challenge (you can see it here), so I wanted to do something different. I thought the faux metal technique would be fun, and I knew I wanted to use Gina K's Whimsical Autumn set again.
This also uses the sketch from yesterday's Sketch Challenge. Hmmmm....now that I look at it, the vine stamped on the right side reminds me of stitching on a baseball. Oh well! This is going to a friend of mine who just game me some pumpkins from her garden!
- Stamps: Whimsical Autumn, Gina K, Itty Bitty BG, SU
- Paper: So Saffron, Confetti White, More Mustard, Autumn Vine DP
- Ink: Stazon, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
- Acc: Classy Copper EP, Heat Tool, Markers, Circle Pumches, Linen Thread, 1/16" punch
Now, on to the blog candy. Cammie, (Carolyn King) has some INCREDIBLE blog candy to offer. She is a stamp designer for Gina K and designed the Whimsical Autumn set I used above. She is donating 100% of the proceeds of the sales of that set to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of her grandmother. So if you make a card and send it to someone who is a caretaker of an Alzheimer's patient, you qualify to enter in the blog candy drawing. There are other rules that apply, so check it out by clicking on her name. The chances of my winning are about as big as the chance of a snowball lasting in the middle of August, but for $1000 worth of prizes, I'll give it a shot! This is my card:
This card will go to a sweet lady in my church. I rarely see her because she stays at home, taking care of her husband, who gets very agitated if she is gone for any length of time. But she was at church last week, so I wanted her to know I was thinking of her. This uses another Gina K stamp called Flowers for Daisy. Basic Grey Stella Ruby and Kraft cardstock form the card, with watercolor paper and Chocolate Chip for the basic image, which was watercolored.
- Stamps: Flowers for Daisy, Gina K
- Paper: Kraft, Basic Grey Stella Ruby, Watercolor, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip
- Ink: Stazon, Baja Blue, Rose Red, So Saffron, Cert Celery
- Acc: Nesties, Dimensionals, Taffeta Ribbon
Remember to check out the blog! There are tons of companies as well as stampers that have contributed to this candy. If I win, I promise, I'll share!
