Back to the challenge. This time it was Leah's turn to determine what our challenge would be. We were to create a card using "No Layers". Not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes I can do these types of cards fairly easy other times not so much. This one came together rather quickly.
The products used on this card are all from Papertrey Ink except for the Turquoise ink. That is from VersaMagic. I used the "grid" paper and I really liked how it gave another dimension to a "flat" card. The stamp sets used were "Bird Watching Additions" and "Bitty Baby Blessings" for the sentiment. The three birdies go great with that sentiment.
Thanks for taking a peek at my card today.

Most of the supplies used on this card were just scraps from my stash. The orange "waves" at the bottom of the card were embossed with Zing embossing powder. (I just love that stuff). The Wave stamp is from Hero Arts.
Thanks for taking a peek.

Here is a little gift bag I made using a stamp that I purchased last weekend at the Mega Meet and I also used a Bella Stamp on this one. I just love the possibilities of this little bag stamp. It's from http://www.inkyantics.com/index.htm. They also have a few other stamp templates that I want to try soon. The Bella stamp is Emmy Bella from http://www.stampingbella.com/ The first view is of the plain tote so you can see how it looks assembled. Really cute and easy to do.
The second view shows the completed bag with the Bella on the front. I used this for a gift card holder for my mom for mother's day. She likes to shop. :)
The paper is from the Citrus collection from DCWV available at Joann stores. It's a very cute collection and sparkly too!
Let me know what you think. Thanks for taking a peek.

Here is my card for the Kristina Werner Design Color Challenge. This is the first time I've attempted one of her color challenges. I love her style and the cards she posts on her blog along with her tutorials. She makes pretty simple cards look just amazing. I really liked the colors in this challenge and will be using them again in the future.
The white and brown cardstock, the chocolate brown ink and the polka dot ribbon, and buttons are all from Papertrey Ink. The stamp set is Sheltering Tree by Gel-A-Tins. The mustard color ink is from Marvy.
Thanks for looking.

Here is the card I made. I used the stamp to create a piece of patterned paper then cut it out with my Nestabilites Label 1 die. The tree is cut from a Quickutz die. The cardstock and ink is from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey, Granola collection. Buttons from my stash and twine was also used.
The wood grain pattern came out great. I can see using this stamp over and over again. I'm sure you'll all be seeing it soon. Plus it is great for those tough to make masculine cards.
About tomorrow, if any of you are going to be in the area. Mega Meet is going on and I'm taking the day off of work and attending. It's fun scrapbooking show and sale. They also hold classes so I'm taking the Glimmer Mist/Tattered Angels class. Looking forward to learning how to use their products. If you plan on attending and want to meet up, that would be great.
Hope everyone has a fabulous day!

This first card uses "Grillafella" from http://www.stampingbella.com/ . The Sentiment "Hot Stuff" is from two different sets. The "Hot" is from Martha Stewart drippy goo which I used the "rock and roll" technique. The "stuff" used Simple Alphabet from Papertrey Ink. I image was colored with Copic Markers. I think he looks pretty spiffy.
