Get ready for a lot of links!
Since I was gone over the weekend, I decided to just wait until today to post a few cards and link them with several challenges.
For my first card, I used the sketch from Mojo Monday. I took a piece of white paper and did some distressing around the edges. Then, I took some of my Memento Hot Chocolate ink, mixed it with a little water, and splattered it on. For the coffee mug ring, I just took a small, round ink pad, inked the rim, dipped it in water, and stamped it on the paper. I also stamped some faded text very lightly with Distress Ink.
The letters were cut with my Cricut, as well as the coffee mug. I added a little Glossy Accents to the heart as my transparent element for Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge. Here's a closer look in case you can't see very well...
I was thinking of several coffee lovers I know that I'd love to have a reason to send this to. :)
My next card is very clean and simple. Definitely not as much inking as the first.
I cut three flower layers from my Cricut out of plain white paper. Then I used my Grape Jelly Memento ink and a cotton square to rub on the color. I stamped just the corner with yellow polka dots, and stamped the sentiment in black.
In the center of the flower I added a button with a baker's twine bow.
I'm linking this to House of Cards as a CAS with a button.
I used the color scheme of purple in yellow in response to OWH's Midweek Throwdown.
I used the button for SSS's Wednesday Challenge.
And... for the first time I'm participating in SSS's Work it Wednesday for March. They want to see what spring projects we are working on.
Whew! I think that's enough links for one post.
