Sparkle and Shine IO Challenge

Typically, I wonder around the craft room trying to decide what I want to make or I head right for the newly purchased goodies. I like that the challenges give you a little bit of direction. The title of this challenge is "Sparkle and Shine." It is hard to see some of the sparkle from the wink of stella, but it is all over the hearts. There are also glittery dabs on the dots. Here are the materials I made for my card:
  • Road Map stamp (J15058) by Impression Obsession
  • More Basic Greetings (CL549) by Impression Obsession
  • copic markers- R27, R29, R35, R46
  • stitched rectangles by Lawn Fawn
  • aluminum foil- talk about SHINE!
  • wink of stella- clear
  • cuddlebug swirly embossing plate
  • red and silver ribbon from Home Goods
  • memento ink- tuxedo black
The challenges are fun! Thanks again, Karen!

Veggie Basket- Serendipity Stamps Challenge

Even though I didn't win the IO challenge this past week, I really enjoyed the thrill of competing! I have been encouraged to join the Serendipity Stamps challenges as well. The challenge for this one is called "Hidden Gems." I haven't been doing this very long so pretty much everything is a hidden gem to me. I didn't even know my mom had this stamp, but I think it turned out pretty well. Here are the materials I used:
  • Veggie Basket Large stamp by Serendipity Stamps
  • solid tree stamp set by impression obsession
  • labels twenty-eight and decorative labels twenty-eight by spellbinders 
  • copic markers- YG17, YG67, G05, G09, G12, G21, G40, YR14, YR15, E33, E34, E55, R24, R35, R46, Y15, Y17, Y19, Y35, B37, Colorless blender
  • memento ink- tuxedo black
  • colorbox- chestnut roan
  • coordinating enamel dots and ribbon 

Here's to my first attempt with Serendipity :)
