Summer Challenge Done!!

I was able to complete my summer challege cards today from Susan Daly...and these are what I came up with using the goods supplied and a little from my stash...

First I made this 6 x 6 double page layout. I sponged the outer 1/4 inch edge of the Pixie Pink cardstock with Pink Passion to add the look of another layer. Then I stamped with my Embrace Life in tone on tone for the pink and green layers. I cut the Ginger Blossom DS 1/2 inch smaller than the background to keep my border visible. I layered some River Rock Double Stitched ribbon on the Old Olive rectangles to help add some interest.

The next project I made was this Believe card. I started with a 5 x 4 1/2 inch card base of Pixie Pink and layered a piece of Old Olive wrapped with Linen Thread. I stamped the ribbon from Hope Is in White Craft ink on Basic Black and colored it with my Prismacolor Pencils in shades of pink when it dried. I heat embossed the word Believe in clear on Whisper White cardstock and sponged Pretty in Pink over it. I also sponged Rose Red on the mini clothes pins to try to keep the pink theme going. I added a small pink silk rose to the corner to finish it off. I'm very happy with how this card turned out.

The next project I did was the little gift box. I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs in Blush Blossom amd the small blossom in Perfect Plum, stamping it 3 times before I re-inked it to get a nice faded look to the flowers. I stamped Cherish in Elegant Eggplant and finished the whole thing off with some thin organza ribbon.

My next card was the So Saffron Z fold card. It had a few swirls stamped in tone on tone so I added some more swirls and Rose Red butterflies from Priceless. I stamped an extra butterfly on Very Vanilla and cut it out an mounted it on a bit of coiled wire to give it a little bounce. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and finished it off with some Old Olive Poly-Twill ribbon.

The final card I made was this one. I started with a Rose Red base and stamped some swirls from Priceless and then layered some Ginger Blossom DS and covered the seam with River Rock Double Stitched ribbon. I stamped the sentiment on Confetti Cream in Rose Red and layered it on a piece of Basic Black. I wrapped the ends with Linen Thread and added a small Library Clip with more Linen Thread tied to it. The main image is from a soda can that was colored, embossed and stamped. I finished off the card by piercing the upper right corner.

The final project was a 6 x 6 piece of desk art. I started with 6 x 6 piece of Going Gray and layered a piece of 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 textured Basic Black cardstock. On that I layerd 2 1/2 inch squares of Pixie Pink and Ginger Blossom papers. I stamped the swirl from Priceless on the pink squares and them used a black rub-on from the SAB set with swirls and flowers onto the squares. In the lower right corner I added another rub-on that says "You make me happy."

I'm very happy with all of the projects I was able to make from this kit. Susan thank you so much for letting me join. I hope everyone like what I was able to come up with.
