In Stamping Mode

A couple quick challenges

Every time I go out of town I get completely inspired to hide away in my stamp room and get busy. Maybe it's for fear of losing my mojo...or maybe I just get to missing my hobby so bad! So after a much needed long weekend at the in-laws (they live on a ranch) I attacked...yes, I attacked a couple of challenges.

First up, Papertrey's new Make it Monday challenge to use Scor-tape in a straight glittered line. I likey.

I went clean and simple with some vellum over patterned paper. I didn't get a chance to play in last week's challenge to make a vellum label so I wanted to carry that over here. :) I took a que from the Framed set and made my glittered borders from that. My sentiment is from my all time favorite Signature Greetings...added some colored rhinestones and called it done!

And here's my Splitcoast CAS challenge for Monday. I know, two challenges done the day they were put?? Surely I must be ill. I do feel maybe a cold coming on. :\ So the challenge was to stamp your own background. I've been itching to use Fruit Stand by Technique Tuesday lately...must just be me longing for some warmer weather. :) So I stamped the strawberries boldly as my background and then subtly with my sentiment. I think it's sweet and those strawberries really look just good enough to eat!

Ok, there's my CAS cards for the month....quick and simple...attacked, right?? :)

Thanks for stopping by!
