Boo Cute

H&M Stamps Weekend Challenge

These cards are for 2 challenges over on Heather Rolin's blog. Heather is the owner of H&M Stamps. Every Saturday a new challenge will be posted. I don't have any of her stamps, but she indicated it was OK to play along anyhow.

One challenge is a layout - the other is a color combo. You can make something for each, or combine them into one. I decided to make a card for each.



Here's my card for the layout challenge.



I used stamps from StampinUP and Studio G. Oval Spellbinders to cut out window and is popped up on dimensionals on top of main image. Coloring done with Copic Markers. I just got paper from Papertrey and Palette Noir ink - so I used it on this card. MAN that paper is great Nice and thick!!! I'm SO GLAD I got it (thanks for enabling me Lorie!) And the ink worked excellent with the Copics. Black and Orange textured CS from Bazzill. Patterned paper is from The Paper Studio called Halloween Random Circles. Fiskars Border Punch, SU Oval Punches, Misc Brads. Turned out pretty cool!



This next card is for the color combo challenge.



I used a Hero Arts Owl stamp that was sittin' on my shelf. I though she would look really cute in purple! hee hee hee. Colored her with Copic Markers and glittered her up with my 2 way glue pen and Art Institute Angel Dust Transparent Ultrafine Glitter :)



The background flowers are from StampinUP stamped with Perfect Plum on Pale Plum CS. Sentiment is also from StampinUP in the For a Friend set. I paper pieced the white cloud and colored the heart red - then added glitter. Main image layer is popped up on dimensionals. This was just a silly fun card. Who says an owl can't be purple?!

Hi, Lori.. You are such a sweetheart for switching off your word verification and joining in my blog candy campaign about it! Thank you so much! All your other visitors will thank you, too! You should consider switching ON Comment Moderation, though, to protect yourself, if you have time to check the comments as they come in.

Anyway, no more pesky little letters! Woohoo! :o)

Yoiu're a star, and you have two entries in my draw. Best wishes with that! :o)
