Then I attached the ATC to a few more panels and to a card that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Fantasy Floral folder. And this card was for the Split Coast Dare to Get Dirty Challenge from Jody - to use ribbon on your card. You have to be a member of the Fan Club on Split Coast to participate in these Dare to Get Dirty challenges - so if you aren't a member - head on over and sign up and get going on the challenges. They will be happening all week long!
I used this beautiful plum pudding PapertreyInk ribbon over a lovely Anna Griffin designer paper. I stamped and cut out a Verve Visual flower and added stickles to it. The sentiment is cut out and framed with Nestability rectangles. To finish it off - I added dew drops to the centers of some of the embossed flowers.

And last, but not least! is my card for the Dare to Get Dirty 08 challenge from Laurie - to use vellum on your card.
I chose to sew the vellum over some designer paper and then to stamp and color on the vellum. I love the look of the DP showing softly through. I used a stamp set from Artful INKables called Thought I'd Bug You - and colored the images with my Prismacolor markers. I highlighted the grasshopper with a gold Spica pen so it glitters IRL but it didn't show up on the picture....This is only the 2nd time I've sewn on a card and I felt better about how it came out this time - more even stitches and straighter lines! Practice makes perfect as they say! I cut away the vellum close to the stitching and then distressed the edges of the DP and sponged them with Sage Shadow.
I cut the sentiment shape with my Spellbinder Tag trio die - wove the PTI ribbon through it and attached the ends on the back. The tag is up on foam dimensionals. I added the 3 flower brads on the side.
And just a reminder: Kristin is offering 10% off all her stamp sets over at Artful INKables through July - there's only a couple more weeks - so hop on over to get that set you've had your eye on before the month is over!!
Thanks so much for coming by!
