TWO CHALLENGES, TWO CARDS - FRIDAY MASHUP #20 AND STAMPING ROYALTY #59

HERE IS MY FIRST CARD FROM THE CUTE SUMMER SUITE STAMP SET FOR THE FRIDAY MASHUP CHALLENGE (http://fridaymashup.com/).  I HAD SO HOPED FOR THIS SET TO BE IN THIS CURRENT CATALOG.  MAYBE IT WILL BE IN NEXT YEARS?  ANYWAYS, I USED BUTTONS IN TANGERINE TANGO, MELON MAMBO AND DAFFODIL DELIGHT ON THE BUTTON CARD THAT WAS STAMPED FROM THE SET.  I MADE A TAPE MEASURER WITH YELLOW CARD STOCK AND THE STAMP, AND BROKE DOWN THE FIBERS SO I COULD MAKE IT BE UP AND DOWN ALONG THE CARD BY USING GLUE DOTS UNDERNEATH CERTAIN PORTIONS OF THE TAPE.  I PUT A REAL NEEDLE IN THE SPOOL OF THREAD.

I USED TANGERINE TANGO CARD STOCK AND PRINTED PAPER FOR THE CARD ITSELF.  YELLOW SCALLOP OVAL BEHIND THE STAMPED SPOOL.  MELON MAMBE BEHIND THE BUTTON CARD. 

I LOVE BUTTONS!! 

MY STAMPING ROYALTY CHALLENGE (http://stampinroyalty.blogspot.com/) ENTRY IS THE FOLLOWING CARD:
I USED CAJUN CRAZE LAYER ON THE BASE.  ON THE I USED AN UNUSUAL TEXTURED WALL PAPER SAMPLE THAT SEEMS LIKE IT IS BAMBOO OR STRAW.  I LIKED THE TEXTURE AND THE COLORS MATCHED MY CARD.  I STAMPED MY ONE LARGE IMAGE USING MY MARKERS TO COLOR IT WITH OLD OLIVE, GARDEN GREEN, DAFFODIL DELIGHT, AND CAJUN CRAZE.  I LIKE HOW THE DIFFERENT COLORS ALL WENT SO WELL TOGETHER AND GAVE IT A MUCH MORE DECORATIVE FEEL.  I USED 3 BRADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAMPED IMAGE IN THE ORANGE, GREEN AND YELLOW COLOR.

I FINISHED IT OFF WITH TWO RIBBONS TIED INTO A KNOT AND GLUED ONTO THE WALL PAPER SAMPLE ON THE LEFT.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.

Please leave a comment.  I love to hear from YOU.

  1. Hi Jen, thanks for your entry into the Friday Mashup challenge this week. I love your home made tape measure, fabulous thinking there. Buttons are really cute as well.

    One small thing, could I please ask you to add a link back to the Friday Mashup challenge site to make it easy for your followers to locate the challenge? It's probably just a small oversight! Thanks.

    Cheers,
