I had lots of crafty time today, and a lot to show for it. So, I'd better get right to it. I actually made made my first card last night. It is my entry into this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash #21 to feature stars, as well as Simon Says...Patriotic. I used the Bead Die to cut red, white, and blue paper wedges, and then ran them all through with the Stars Impression Plate.
A close up so you can see the impressed stars. Total time 9 minutes 43 seconds. Yikes!
My next card is for this week's Retro Sketches RS #71. I used the AE Balloon Animal and some papers from MME Hootenanny, which I got on sale last week. I covered the entire balloon animal in Glossy Accents, and used a bit of Washi tape in place of the ribbon accent.
Edited to add that I am linking this card up to the Mixy-Matchy Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Hold on to your hats, because the next three cards are not for any challenges at all. They are just things I felt like making as I was playing around with some of my newest purchases.
This first card uses a stamp from MFT Mod Borders. I stamped a sort of random pattern with the triangle strip, and then colored in the open triangles with copic markers. The sentiment is cut with Headline Alphabet dies using Black Shimmer Paper.
I think this might be my favorite of the bunch. I started playing around with WMS Funky Feathers and my new Memento Teal Zeal ink, and came up with this pattern.
This is my last card for the day--more playing around with WMS Funky Feathers--this time I made a square card, and the feathers are topped with a die cut flower from Bigger blooms, using SU Crisp Cantaloupe ink. I bought this ink as a substitute for PTI Melon Berry, and it is a very good match--only a little prettier, in my opinion.
I am also linking this post up to Stacey's Birthday Linky Party, as there are lots of birthday cards here for the party.
