Challenge Entries

Hey bloggies! I wanted to share a couple of projects I completed for two different challenges. The first one is Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge #44 with a twist you can see the sketch on their site. The twist is to use monochromatic colors, as well as white or black as needed.

Well of course I knew I had to include a peachy face, so then what? I recently purchased a flower die from Papertrey Ink (PTI) and decided it was time to pull it out. All of the paper and ribbon is rasberry fizz from PTI as well. The punch is by Martha Stewart and the adorable peachy face is from the 'Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment' absolute must have! I found the Valentine stamp in the dollar bin at Michael's and used some white embossing powder to add a little extra dimension. To make the card a little extra special I added an Action Wobble to my flower, so fun!

I think the card turned out pretty well. This is my first submission in a Peachy Challenge.

Next up I created a project for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge. We were asked to use at least 4 Cricut cuts and include something edible in the design. I found this fantastic scepter box on the 'Life's A Party' cartridge and knew I had to make one. I cut the box and all the layers at 10-inches. The paper is a combination of Martha Stewart, BoBunny and PTI. I inked all the edges of my cuts with Rose Red Memento Ink. The stamp I chose is one that is included in a Martha Stewart punch. I also embossed it with white embossing powder and I love how it pops on the red cardstock. The ribbon I found at Michael's in the holiday section.

I really hope you enjoyed these projects and may even find some inspiration to start your own Valentine projects and maybe even put yourself out there and enter some challenges. Thanks so much for stopping by! As always I love your comments and support. Take care!
