365 Cards Challenges

I had a goal to try and make all the weekly card "assignments" from the 365 Cards Blog.  I finally completed a week....

Day 20 - Super Sketchy Sunday Challenge - see my post HERE!

Day 21  -  Theme was Floral, Clean and Simple.  I may try this again, but next time by creating and using stamped masks.  Since I did not do this, the project was super easy and super quick.  I used 2 floral stamps, a sentiment stamp and a simple sprig stamp in 3 colors.  I also used plain cream and  textured red card stock.  The only thing that took a little bit of extra effort was cutting the stamped image and corresponding red card stock mat.

Day 22 - Bling Bling!  All that glitters is the theme!  You can see my post HERE.

Day 23 - The theme is Word Wednesdaythis week's word was "Sweet".  You can see my post HERE.

Day 24 - Lovely liquids - Spray, stain, splatter and paint your card!  On my card I sprayed white card stock using a masque and metallic charcoal and yellow mists.  Once dry, I cut pieces using an oval punch.  I carefully arranged and then attached the pieces from the oval punch with brads.  I put this over red, yellow and black printed paper from a Basic Grey Stack, Obscure.  To finish the card I added thick glitter letters and a stamped "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

Day 25 - Color Combo.  For this I made a VERY quick and easy card.  My godmother's daughter had another baby boy and I need to send out a present.  I made a quick card to accompany the gift.  In order to enter I had to follow a specific color scheme (see below, next to my finished card).  I think I hit all the colors perfectly!

For Day 26 the Theme is A Button and A Bow.  The hemp cord I used was too thick to make a standard bow with 2 loops so my version has one loop. This card is a quirky take on "party time".  This would be suitable as a birthday card or as an invitation

And that is it!  I have not entered any challenges in a while so it was fun to catch up and get creative.  I love looking over everyone else's works, be it the design teams or other challenge entrants.
