DTGD Entries

Hopefully, you are a fan club member on Splitcoaststampers and have the opportunity to play along with some or all of the challenges presented by current and former Dirty Dozen girls! You can find details on how to join HERE. I can't go into details about the challenges here, but wanted to share a couple of cards that I created for two of the challenges so far.

This is for Mary's challenge and I finally got to ink up a new Altenew set called Gradient Sunset.  I inked up the "sun" using 4 shades of inks by Papertrey Ink: Harvest Gold, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Terracotta Tile.  I used my MISTI to stamp the bird and sentiment at least two times as well as the background staggering of the word "happy".  I'm also entering this card into the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge where I tweaked the square element and changed it to a circle.  It also fits for Just Us Girls Challenge where it's word week and the word is "beach".

My second card is a CASE of a card by Laurie Schmidlin and it's for Jeanne's challenge.  The striped pattern paper is from Reverse Confetti's Very Merry 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from RC's Christmas Blessings stamp set and the wreath includes RC's dies - Leafy Wreath and Tagged Tote (bow).  This is officially my first card for the 2018 Christmas list and I have to say it is really difficult for me to do holiday cards when it's up to 90 degrees outside - lol!
