Just stopping in to share a card and tag for two of my favorite challenges...Muse and Tag You're It!
First up, my incredibly talented and fun blog friend, Michele Ferguson created this fabulous card for this week's challenge at Muse:
I love the repeat elements on Michele's patterned paper, but since I don't have anything like that, I created my own using PTI's 'Uncorked' stamp set. For the bottom panel, I swiped the same ink pad on to a piece of white cardstock, but it dried much darker...I do like the contrast, so I used it, then I die cut the sentiment and wine bottle from the same set. Lastly, I added some of PTI 'Rainstones' for some sparkle, and a thin strip of silver cardstock...and that was it!
I used Hero Arts Passion Flower ink for the wine glasses and solid panel along the bottom... Please note: About a year ago, a few of us noticed that this ink pad had a pink hue, as opposed to purple. Hero Arts replaced them with the correct ink pads, but I used the original color on this card.
Don't you just love that Santa Claus stamp? For this challenge, I created a double tag for a Christmas gift:
In an effort to stay on budget (have you seen the latest ME release?), I pulled out my favorite Mama Elephant penguins from last year, and had some fun coloring. The holly is from PTI, and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
