Tamm and my card swap..June 2010

So my package to Tammy (http://tampatha.wordpress.com ) just got to her yesterday..talk about cutting it close! I chose a masculine theme for the month of June, and we set to work to create card kits! I got hers in good time, Im not sure why mine took FOREVER! Im just really glad it got there!

Anyhoo, without further ado, here are my cards and hers! She sent the puppy image kit, and I sent the baby boy one!  I still find it amazing how the same supplies can generate 2 different cards! I love doing this with Tammy, its so fun! Be sure to visit her blog http://tampatha.wordpress.com as she has other creations worthy of a view!

Next month is Christmas in July! Should be fun! I love making Christmas cards, they are my favorite type to make!

Two for Tuesday! In one card!

http://artfulinkables.blogspot.com has a recipe challenge, 3 buttons, 2 pieces of ribbon, and a circle!

http://colourq.blogspot.com has a colour challenge of kiwi kiss, groovy guava, kraft, basic black and vanilla.

So what did I do with those two challenges? I combined them!! I first took my magnolia image, and picked out copic markers really close to kiwi kiss, and groovy guava.. I then set off colouring! I love to colour it really is so relaxing!! Then I used the negative image from a marquee I had cut out of Kraft cardstock, using Mothers Day 2010 Cricut Cartridge. I layered Vanilla paper behind the marquee, then green lace ribbon on the outer edges. I then stamped smile on kraft, in black and cut it out with the martha stewart scalloped circle. It was missing something, so I added a circle of bling! Then I used a black, guava and vanilla ribbon, and 3 green buttons. I think it meets all the goals of the 2 challenges!! Oh and I used my spica pens in the balloons for a bit of sparkle, and her boots are kraft with glitter! FUN!

I hope you enjoy this CCubed creation, it was so fun for me! And the colours were out of my norm, so definately a challenge!!
