Challenge cards with good 'ole Dutchy

Okay, so once I got my stuff yesterday I was torn on what to use first but my longing for the CC paper was too much to bear, so I had to tear it open. This is what I came up with the first time around. It was the SC127 on Splitcoast. I really like this layout and I think I might try it again. I still that it is lacking something but I think if I add anything else I would be overdoing it. However, I did have to add some stickles to make it shine! I also made everything popped up. I think there are like 3 different levels to this bad boy.

  • Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl paper
  • Wonderful Words stamp set
  • Real Red classic ink, Tim Holtz Walnut distress ink
  • scallop edge scissors
  • spronge, stickles

This is my #2 card with DG paper. I made this for the Ways to Use It challenge #116 on Splitcoast. The challenge was chipboard. Well, whaddaya know!?! I have a new pack of bare naked chipboard sitting on my desk! Yay! I painted a few coats of white onto the chipboard frame and let it dry. Then I took regular sand paper (not the fine grit) and sanded the edges so it would match the distressed look of the paper. The flower is just two of the Cuttlebug flowers stacked on top of eachother (the bottom one in the pic). I really enjoyed doing this card and I just love how it turned out!

  • Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl paper
  • Noteworthy stamp set (SU)
  • Cuttlebug flower dies
  • Cosmo Cricket bake named chipboard buttons
  • white acrylic paint, brad, velvet ribbon
I hope to be making even more tonight! Oh, and I am getting ready to go update my photography blog! Check it out!
