a Stamp It Challenges Card to share

I don't share my publications nearly as often as I should, I'm not sure why because I love so many of those card and would love to share them here on my blog with you.  So, I really should fix that!  I promise I'll do better!
Back at Ed Board, the Go-to Gals brainstormed over a hundred different stamping challenges which, with a lot of work, then turned into Stamp It! Card ChallengesSee that quilt inspired card with the orange bow on the cover?  That's mine too! :)

I love stamping and I love challenges so this was a really fun issue for me!  This is one of my favorite cards from the issue. 
This is the card I made for the challenge to stamp a frame.  I love so many things about this card, the pinked border is fun and I love how the blue peeks out from behind it.  I also love how I gave the cardstock the appearance of texture by stamping the envelope pattern background pattern stamp over the entire panel.  I do this a lot, it's a fun trick.  It works great with subtle background stamps.

If you don't have Stamp It! Card Challenges you can find it here and also see a sneak peek here.

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: We R Memory Keepers

It's the last Wednesday of the month and that means it is time for another Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine Go-to Gal Designer Challenge.  This month, we're focusing on products from We R Memory Keepers.
 
For my card, I played with 6x6 washi blackboard pad.  What's awesome about these pads is you can do so much more than you would with a traditional washi tape - the possibilities are endless! I cut some of the pads down into strips and then die cut hearts too! 
 
Now it's off to check out the other Go-to Gals to see how they've used products from We R Memory Keepers.  Kimberly Crawford is taking care of her family this month.

Heather Campbell <-- That's me!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me!  Have a great one!

Avery Elle Anything Goes

It's an anything goes day over on the Avery Elle blog and this is the card I made for it.  I used Laurels and Winter Wreath to create my card.
For some extra interest, I stamped the pine cones twice, once in a lighter in and again with a darker ink color using a rock and roll technique to selectively ink my stamp.  I also added some glitter using my Wink of Stella glitter pen, I love it! 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
