Two Cards, One Post....

Good Wednesday Morning,
Today I'm sharing two cards with you. This first card is for Creations By Penny. Penny has her new digi shop up and running. Click here for all the details. This fun gumball machine is one of her latest additions. I knew immediately that I wanted to use my CTMH Animal Cookies paper with it. My idea was to have one red gumball, I know it is kind of difficult to tell, but there is just one in there, hence the sentiment, "You're One of a Kind". I also painted some liquid glass over the image. That was hard to photograph, but it looks great irl...
I love this fun card. What do you think? Check out the inspiration of my DT sisters here. These ladies have some fabby cards to share.

Next up is my bi-weekly challenge card for Penny's Challenges. On this challenge, you need to use chalk. Now there is a technique I've not touched in a while. I printed out this fabulous fire heart from Creations by Penny and chalked it up. I blended red and two lighter shades of pink to achieve this look. I think it is soft and perfect for this card. My dps and sentiment are My Mind's Eye, brads and ink are CTMH, and ribbon is from stash. Are you ready to pull out your chalk and get busy? I hope so, here is some amazing inspiration from my DT sisters. I love what they came up with, you will not want to miss it!

Blessings,

  13. wow, Kim, these are both great cards .. especially like the gumball one. Well, I'm having trouble getting back in the swing of things at work .. how about you? Yep, I'm loving my Gypsy but still consider her a luxury item. It's great for designing in the living room where I can be with hubby instead of tied to the computer. Lots of nice features but still .. a luxury. Hope you have a great week!

  18. Both cards are great!!! I think you did a really good job chalking. Alot of times when I'm using chalk I rub and rub and it starts to tear the paper a little... lol. I need to remember if I want DARK to use water or markers. lol.

    Is that your own handwriting on the first card?
