Crafty Contagion: It’s Not Easy Being Green!

Hi, crafty pals! Thanks for stopping by for a closer look at the card I created for the latest challenge at Crafty Contagion! This time, the Divas are getting groovy with the color green!

I’ll admit, it’s not one of my favorite colors, but I had fun with this challenge! I asked Scott for some ideas using the color green, and one that he came up with was a dragon. So, I picked one of my Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps that features a dragon, and colored it up!

Here’s my card, featuring many shades of green:

Supplies: patterned papers (Cosmo Cricket – Social Club), sentiment stamp (My Favorite Things), image stamp (Kraftin’ Kimmie – Takara), Copic markers, ribbon, coin charm, brads, Spellbinders die (Labels 8), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance), card base, foam tape.

Hope you’ve been inspired to create something green for our challenge! We’d love to see what you create! Before you link up, don’t forget to see what the other Divas of Team B have whipped up at the Crafty Contagion blog!

Crafty Contagion Challenge: 12 Days of Christmas!

Happy Saturday! This week, the Stamping Together Divas have all contributed to this week’s challenge at our Crafty Contagion blog, which is inspired by the 12 days of Christmas! Each of us chose one of the days and then created a card inspired by that day!

My card was inspired by the “10 Lords-A-Leaping.” My first thought was to use frogs, and then I dressed them up for Christmas:

Supplies: card base, image stamps – (Santa hat – Paper Smooches; frog – Stampin’ Up!), ink (Stampin’ Up!) sentiment (Making Memories rub-on), glitter brads, Copic markers, cardstock, (Stampin’ Up! & Bazzill), patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye – 12 Days of Christmas), corner rounder, pom-poms.
The rub-on sentiment actually said “happy holidays,” but I borrowed an “o” from another of the sentiments and used it in place of the “a” to make my custom sentiment.
There are 11 more fantastic cards for you to see! Head over to the Crafty Contagion blog to check them all out!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I’ve inspired you to craft something fun and festive!

Crafty Contagion Challenge: Leftovers!
