Sunday, October 7, 2012 OWH blog hop (Nina)

Well...I'm liking these challenges....I get to clean up all of my scraps!!! LOL!

Nina challenged us to use up the leftovers of a paper collection. I had 3/4's of a sheet of my FAVE paper...Bo Bunny's Gabrielle. I had just enough to make these two cards. You really can't add much more to this beautiful paper!!

I'm going to call it a night. Love to you all!


OWH blog hop challenge (Brit)'s a couple more cards for the Crop Chocolate DT blog hop. Brit's challenge was to use paper scraps from one paper group. So, I busted out my Authentique paper and made some cards.
Here you go.....

I love how they turned out, don't you??

OWH blog hop challenge (Julie)

Here's Julie's sketch.....

                                                       And here are my cards.....

So this little card only uses one Crop Chocolate item.I'm using my Carta Bella paper TONS!!


And same with this card. I think they look just great without anything else added. Agree??

OWH blog hop challenge (Brenna)

So....Brenna's challenge was to cards with dimension. Here are my cards.

Ok...this card was fun and full of experiments. The paper is Carta Bella Beautiful Moments. The stamp is Imaginisce and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder in Copper. Then...I used MM glitter paint and MM scrapbook paint and dolloped and swirled it together. Then, I topped it off with Stickles. Different but lots of fun!

This card is also made with Carta Bella Beautiful Moments paper. The papers are lightly distressed with TH distress inks (fired brick). The flourishes are made with Stickles (xmas red).
Off to the next one!!!

OWH blog hop challenge (Michele)'s the next challenge. It's from By Belle (Michele). Love the sketch she chose. Here's the sketch....


And here is what I made.

 All of the patterned paper, ribbon and buttons are Fancy Pants. I also used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink pads and MME lime twist twine.

I'm off to get more cards done.


Crop Chocolate OWH Blog Hop

I love making these cards for Operation Write Home. What makes it even MORE wonderful is when my favorite online crafty supply company does a blog hop and has us do even MORE OWH cards!

The blog hop has been going on for a bit but things here have been soo crazy. I'm just getting started on these cards so you will be seeing MANY posted today!

Here are my cards based on Amber's challenge. Here's the sketch....

...and here are my cards.
I used FP "My Family" paper and Bazzill paper which was purchased at Crop Chocolate. Ribbon and chalk from my stash. Enjoy!
