Stamp-a-Faire - Three More Challenges :)


Good morning, well, almost afternoon here.  I've had a productive morning in the craft room...and looking at my pictures now, I must have been in a blue mood!  I made a trio of cards for the challenges from yesterday!
My first card was a try at the Tie Die Challenge...but looking at the picture it looks nothing like tie die...it looks better in real life I promise!  I tried to tie die on a piece of paper and then die cut the butterfly!
My second card was for the Ribbon Technique Challenge...looking at this...that is a lot of ribbon. Should have probably added some buttons to the middle to break it up a bit or used a smaller die as the negative image...but we have to try new things to see what we like best, so I'm still posting it! :)


My last card is my favorite of the three.  I'm entering this in the Homemade Embellishment Challenge.  I love that Dawn layered her dies for her butterfly embellishments. I changed it up a bit and layered two different dies (snowflake and banner), but am happy with the CAS end result for this card. The snowflake was sprayed with a Tattered Angels spray mist to give it a feel of snow.

That's it for today...hoping to be back tomorrow with a card set inspired by Betsy Veldman's tutorial!
