sarah kay challenge

i stumbled across these adorable sarah kay stamps and was instantly hooked. well my friend Christine had a link up to a sarah kay blog and they issue a challenge every sunday so of course i had to play!

i must say i am so in love with this card. the colors are not colors i might have normally put together but i started the picking process with the patterned paper (DCWV nana's nursery stack) and went from there. the sketch itself was so good i just knew the card would be too! the image is colored with copics. corners are a fiskars corner punch, border is also fiskars. i finished off with a couple primas, a flower button and some dots of dimensional pearls here and there.

HOWEVER, i SO don't need any more cards! SO i used it on this LO:

i repeated the border somewhat across the top and bottom and added more primas. i have some moss rose across the front of our blueberry patch that is growing really well so i said Pez, go sit by the moss rose and i'll take your picture. well she sat IN the moss rose (holding a dead plant she uprooted while in the garden with Tiger).

i was really pleased with my prima layering. i used to hoard primas but i am getting more free with them.

I also got another LO done with pics of the same afternoon - Tiger found some mint in my garden and it was like catnip! she was rolling around and totally filthy! well pezzy just had to go see what she was up to:

Close up of the stamping - i used a bella and some MFT's. loving the primas on this one as well.

these LOs were both done using Page Maps - a FABulous resource if you haven't already been there.

these LOs got me thinking about some things so when i collect the thoughts completely i will share them with you along with that blog candy i mentioned yesterday.....STAY TUNED!!

  1. Lovely Sarah Kay card--that is my favorite stamp of hers. Love the colors and good for you to put it on a scrapbook page. I'm embarrassed to say how far behind I am on my scrapbooks, lol!
