365 Cards Challenge Sketch #2

Yippee...I am rockin and rollin with my stampin and card making! Thanks to 365 Cards and Gingerwood!

The 365 Cards sketch is here:



and my card tries to follow the sketch pretty closely.



The Gingerwood ladies have been posting challenges about using your OLD stamps, papers, and other products that have been neglected...

On this particular card I used old RAFFIA (there's more where this came from, and they're all still in their wrappers), Making Memories' Red Label Frame (was new in the package), Tim Holtz' Grungeboard Square (that wasn't SOOO old, but in a way it was because I hadn't even taken it out of the bag yet). I also used some pearlized powdered pigments (like Pearl Ex) but it must be at least 8-10 years old...and get this...it had not been taken out of the wrapper yet (big surprise, I know). The rest of the colors in the pallete might make another card very soon.... lol

The cardstock is from the DCWV paper pad called the Green line - it's so cute! The red printed cardstock has gold dots of pearlized pigment on it. Underneath is a wood print background paper that came from a garage sale a couple weeks ago.

Hope you all get to check out the challenges this week over on 365 cards :) They're a lot of fun!

OMG - the weather in Seattle is a TRIP right now. BIG, soft pellets of snow are falling like crazy! I can't even see the lake it's so dense! They're hitting the windows outside of where I type and it sounds like little rubber peas pelting against the glass!

Such a cute card Elaine - love that beaver stamp and the raffia is just perfect - texture and a pop of color. Thanks for joining us!

Well if this doesn't encourage me to root around in the forgotten depths of my craft room, nothing will. It's amazing!
