Hello friends! Are you glad it’s Friday? Sometimes I think where did the week go and other times, it seems forever before we get to the weekend! I know that although I am a homemaker, there is still something about the weekend getting here. Hubby still works so perhaps that the reason, I’m not sure. None-the-less TGIF! 🙂
I know you had gotten used to seeing (lots of you really enjoyed looking at them each week too!) the Friday results of ICAD, but now that it’s over, I still have a different kind of results to share with you. As in this last Monday’s post, the following creations that I’m showing on my blog here are from the Splitcoaststampers “Dare to Get Dirty” challenges for fan club members (only) for the week long event which ends today for the challenges. I think they’ll give you a few extra days to upload your creations just in case you need some time to complete some challenges. If that link above to SCS does not work for you, then you need to be a fan club member to see the challenge details. CLICK HERE for information regarding that if you are interested.
And as I mentioned in Monday’s post also, I am not able to reveal the full details of how I went about making these creations. But, if you are a fan club member on Splitcoaststampers, then you will know exactly what I’m talking about here! 🙂
The first card here was made for Anita’s challenge:
I will say that the products I’ve used on this design are from a Brutus Monroe Inspiration Box. (This was from a previously released box.) I really love the cool and unique things in these kits! It was hubby’s idea to add the Starbucks gift card on the inside! LOL! Good one hunny! (He wanted me to give him credit for that!) Let’s just say that I had a BLAST creating this one! 🙂
challenges for the above card:
- 4 Crafty Chicks – Out of This World/Space
- Creative Knockouts – Fancy Fold
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Distress It (distressed edges)
- Sweet Stampin’ – Travel
This card was so fun! It seems to be a creation that was commented on over in the gallery quite a bit. This was made for Angie’s challenge and I really like how this one turned out too. The little piggy, sentiment and sentiment die all came from My Favorite Things. I paper pieced the heart for the little piggy. 🙂
challenges for the above piggy card:
- Stamping Sensations (August) – ‘current’ favorite stamp (OMG this pig!)
- Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies – August
- Try It On Tuesday – Inspired by Song (‘Total Eclipse of the Heart‘ by Bonnie Tyler & ‘Smile‘ by Uncle Kracker)
This was for Sandee’s challenge. I’m getting ready to be in need of some masculine cards coming up in the next few months or so, so I’m trying to get ahead of the game by having them on hand! Let’s see how that goes! Do you remember the cool Stamp On It products that I purchased from my Stamp Convention trip in THIS POST? I’ve used it again on this card.
This is a challenge that is released today at the “Dare to Get Dirty” event for Kelli Jo’s second challenge. I think it turned out pretty cool and can I just say that I wish I had this hair?! LOL! The sentiment was white heat embossed from My Favorite Things More Essential Sentiments and then I added some heart sequins. And that’s all I can say about it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my creations even if you don’t understand how I’ve arrived at the completed design. 🙂 Looking back at these now, I can see how they could each fit into a masculine style category which is pretty cool!
Thank you so much for stopping through my blog and having a look! Hope you will consider becoming a subscriber or check on updates in your favorite reader with me…I have much more to share!
