Challenge Cards

 It's been a long time since I made any cards for the challenges at The Outlawz.  (or posted on my blog!, No guarantees, but I hope to post a little more often to this blog in 2018)

 I've missed doing the challenges but was busy with collabs and challenges on You Tube, plus went through a period of missing mojo.  But with the new year I thought this was a good time to revisit and support one of my favorite sites.

So here are the cards I've made so far for this first week in January.

This card is for Sunday, December 31st.  Sundays are always CAS (clean and simple).  There was an added twist to add some sparkle to your card.  I used a very old SU stamp (1993), a foam stamp.  Anyone remember when SU offered those?  Ha!  I used a die from Simon Says Stamp.  It is a series of stars that I kept together as one die rather than cutting them apart.  I placed some silver glitter paper behind the front white die cut panel.

This second card is for Tuesday, January 2nd. Tuesdays are Color days and we were to use teal, plus two other colors from a photo prompt.  I chose black and coral.  Now, I do have to say that this card was CASEd from a card I saw on a Paper Pumpkin (SU Kit) Facebook page where demos and customers share alternate card ideas using the kits.  The coral die cut portion was from the Dec card kit for 2017.  The white "dots" are from a gel pen.  We had to add our own twist, so I could say banners or enamel dots were my twist.

This is my favorite card so far this week.  This card was for Wednesday, January 3rd.  Wednesdays are sketch days.  The sketch was for a square card, but I wanted to make an A2 sized card.  The snowflake is from SU. I just turned the gold snowflake over to reveal this off white color on the back side.  For the patterned paper I used some Trimcraft paper from my stash.  As I was about to put adhesive on the back side of the paper I decided I liked that pattern better so switched it up.  Do you ever do that?  The ribbon has slight variations in color and looks so nice with this patterned paper.

This last card that I'm sharing today is for Thursday, January 4th.  Thursdays are known as Twisted Thursday and you can make anything you want, but a twist is given.  Since I am mainly a card maker I stick to making cards. The twist was to make it into a shaker.  I pulled out one of my favorite snowman stamps and cut out his belly for the shaker area.  I filled his belly with a snowflake sequin and the some clear, white and blue seed beads.

That's it for today!  It was a fun-filled morning of card making!  Now I have quite the mess to clean up!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

 Hope you're having a great day wherever you are.

Off to create some more!
