Great news and I'm still Dirty!!!!

So, first of all I want to share my super awesome news that I made the design team I was trying out for! The company is smART works rubber stamps. I should be getting started next week and I am so excited!! Thanks Susan for this great opportunity!!

I also finished some more challenges from the Splitcoast Dirty Dare. This one was JanTInk's challenge for no dark colors. I think I was walking the line by using Mellow Moss but it's still a light color in my opinion! I used the Stardust glaze pen one the edge of the Pale Plum and Barely Banana and also on some of the pattern on the Paisley and over 'thoughts of you' too. As soon as I drew it on I used my finger to blend it in.

  • Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, Pale Plum CS
  • Deco Designs (TAC), Paisley BG (Cornish Heritage Farms), Thoughts of you (Michael's $1 bin) stamp sets
  • Versamark and Stazon jet black inks
  • Sakura Stardust glaze pen
  • deco edge scissors
  • ribbon

This one I made for JulieHRR's challenge. I knew she would come through for me with a no layer card!! Woo-Hoo!

  • Fabriano watercolor paper
  • Falling Down (TAC), Simply Said (SU) stamp sets
  • Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue re-inkers
  • aqua painter

Cambria prompted this next card with an all pink challenge along with BadSherry's Monet challenge which included the cracked glass technique along with the wet watercolor technique. It's hard to see the cracked glass part, but it's there! I stamped the flowers in Pretty in Pink and the took one of my ZIG markers and outlined it. I added a bit of glitter before I embossed and punched it out with my Mega scalloped punch.

  • Rose Red CS
  • Bo Bunny (Candy Dots) DP
  • Happy Harmony (SU) stamp set
  • Marvy Mega scalloped circle punch
  • clear embossing powder

Okay, now I am a fan of BadSherry because well, sometimes she is BAD! And with this challenge she asked us all to be bad! Man was that fun! I still have several other cards floating around in my head but haven't had all of the right stuff to make then, so for now they will just stay there!

  • Gable Green, black, and white CS
  • rhino (unknown), On the Spot wheel (SU), Karen Foster 1/8 inch snap stamps
  • Stazon jet black ink
  • Marvy Mega scalloped punch
  • push pin

Okay, last but not least JeanneS's paper piecing challenge (which also works for Julie's no layer card too!). This is very similar to a card I made before with the Diva Dresses set from TAC. This time there is no pop dots, no watercoloring, and instead of the sentiment being 'Hello beautiful girl' it says 'My beautiful girl' which would make it great to send to a daughter ir younger girl that is special to you. Hopefully I ccan get my MIL to sell it where she works!

  • Diva Dresses (TAC), Word Play (TAC) stamp sets
  • Stazon jet back ink
  • rhinestones
  • push pin


So before I go I need to ask you guys what kind of 'cookie' you think my card making style is. I was thinking something plain like sugar cookie or peanut butter but then maybe something cool on the inside like a snickers bar or something. What kind of cookie do you think I am? And if any of you say "something with nuts of course" then so help me!!!!!! {wink}

Congratulations on the DT spot! It is well are very talented!

Colleen Schaan said...

Congratulations on making the DT...I knew you would get rock. Your cards are definitely dirty worthy...and I would say you are a soft M&M cookie...soft (as in your style is flexible) and M&Ms are a sweet special little treat hidden throughout the "regular" dough...and I think you have a very "mainstream" style with some extra special "WOWZERS" sometimes. (that are totally different from your normal style...) Does that make sense?

Julie Masse said...

Yea!!! Heidi's back and yea for you and the DT!!! Can't wait to see what you'll be making!! Love all the cards of course. And cookie, oh I guess I'd say one of those yummy no bake cookies - they are sweet and delicious and no baking!! :)

Rose Ann said...

Congratulations on your design team, Heidi!! Yay!!

I love all of your cards! The top two are my faves. :)

Cookie??? I would say some kind of cut out type, with just the right amount of "toppings".
