Z is for Zombies

I haven’t joined in with any of the challenges yet on The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers blog, but I came across this sentiment yesterday while looking for something else, and I decided I couldn’t go past joining in the Z is for Zombies challenge. It really makes me laugh, and would make an awesome non-mushy Valentine’s Day card! 😛

Supplies used:

  • Inks: Red Velvet, Dusty Rose, Sweet Mango, Sweet Corn by Gina K Designs
  • Sentiment: Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings by My Favorite Things
  • Splatters: Gorgeous Grunge by Stampin’ Up! (retired), and Red Hot embossing powder by Gina K Designs
  • Mummy (zombie) die: Trick or Treat 2 by Sizzix

Nativity card

Another day, another challenge – this time it’s a Christmas Nativity theme card for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog. When I’m tired and can’t think of what to create, a challenge really helps to give a basis to work from – that was definitely the case tonight! And day 27 of CardMaynia is also completed, so that’s a win/win. Only 4 days left to go!

I usedf the Nativity Silhouette dies by My Favorite Things, along with Gina K Designs inks, and black glimmer cardstock by Stampin’ Up!

MFT sketch challenge 593

Here’s my first contribution to My Favorite Things sketch challenges. A bit of a different interpretation of the sketch. I had this background sitting on my desk and I was undecided what to do with it – but when I saw the sketch diagram I couldn’t help but imagine this background as my cardbase. It’s certainly not what I originally had imagined for it, but that’s the great thing about challenges, often unexpected ideas come out of left field. This also qualifies as day 16 of my personal CardMaynia challenge.

The feather dies are from Paper Rose, and inks are by Gina K Designs.
