Challenge Play

I have been busy playing at a few different challenges across the Internet. Here are a few of the cards I made.
Hero Arts sponsored a great "go green" challenge. I made several cards.

I save lots of the wonderful stamps that come my way on swaps. The sentiment is a RAK from lakeslady/Joan.

I used scraps for this card including the marble paper I created with shaving cream. This card is for my sister who loves cooking and flowers.

I stamped on old calendar pictures for this card and envie.

This card used the newly released Quickutz embossing folder...what fun to sand the images. The sun and flower image are stamped on more of the homemade marble paper. Thanks Tami for the RAK.

I created this fern card using Tami B/teabear's wonderful video tutorial on her blog. Perhaps you may have done the bleach technique in the past but this one has an added twist that is lots of fun.

My most recent challenge is on GinaK's Stamp TV site.
She had 2 tutorials on wax paper backgrounds. I used plain wax paper for the frame and ran some through the cuttlebug for the background behind the flower.


  1. Oh my Jan, look at all these beautiful cards! You have no busy lady! They are all gorgeous! The fern leave looks so 3D!

  2. Hi, Jan! Lovely cards! So many beauties! :-)

  3. These are all wonderful Jan. You've been playing with lots of fun techniques. Thanks for the post about GinaK's tutorial. I forgot about those. She's so clever to run the wax paper through the cuttlebug. Love that.

  4. Wow, these are all great!!! I reall like the tree and the bird!

  5. Fab cards, I particularly like the one wiht the tree that you stamped on an old calender.


Thanks for leaving a makes my day
