Good evening friends! I don’t normally post in the evening, but I had been working on some other things this weekend and today and hadn’t had a chance to create a post to share my creations with you for the “Dare to Get Dirty” challenge on Splitcoast Stampers! You can CLICK HERE to see the challenges, but ONLY if you are a fan club member, if you are not, then you can CLICK HERE to see more info about becoming one!
And of course since the challenges are exclusively for the SCS fan club members only, I cannot share the details with you about what the challenges are about…so please keep that in mind when you see my creations for this without full details! 🙂
The first three cards that I’m sharing were created for my challenge during this event. It went “live” yesterday and there are really so many wonderful and creative entries in the gallery for this! I’m so glad everyone has been having fun playing along with it!
I couldn’t stand how stinkin’ CUTE this My Favorite Things stamp set was, so of course I HAD to go grab it! I had been holding off on it for quite a while and then finaly broke down and just got it! That cow in there just kills me! LOL!! I am talking about the MFT BB The Whole Herd stamp set. I’ve used a ton of different paper from my stash to create a scene for the pigs. I’ve also used various MFT dies to put everything together. I have hand written the words that are on the trough the little piggy is standing in.
My next card is made using the tutorial on SCS called the Herringbone technique. (You do NOT have to be a fan club member to see this technique…it’s open for everyone.) It’s been around for a while, but I really love the results it can bring to a background on a card! I have used the flower image from a retired Lawn Fawn stamp set and a greeting set and die from Impression Obsession.
This final card for my challenge is done using an ‘Iris Fold‘ technique. I have used a circle die cut to create my design and then went around the circle with a tag die from Lawn Fawn that I also used an additional circle die that I’ve used to cut out the center of it for a framing effect and so that it looks more like an ornament. I used an embossing folder from SU! as well as the snowflake image in the middle of the ornament along with a wonky stitched rectangle die to cut the panel out with and then added a seniment cut with a die from CAS-ual Fridays with gold foil card stock. The gold thread was added through the tag hole at the top and secured around the back of the main image panel and lastely I added a crystal in the center of the snowflake.

Another card I wanted to share was for another challenge issued from a fellow Dare to Get Dirty Dozen design team member. This one took me a while to grasp how to make it happen, but once figured out, it turned out pretty cool:
Again, I can’t share with you the details about the challenge, but it’s sort of a ‘mixed media’ based design! 🙂 I’ve die cut some stars using some silver foil card stock and added a sentiment to go with it embossed with white EP over a black banner strip.
Thought this would make for a fun masculine style card.
Be sure to stop by again tomorrow! I have something fun to share with you!!!
