Some Challenge Cards

Since I will be leaving Thursday for CHA--and won't have much free time, I thought I would share some challenge cards with you!  I have been busy using these digital stamps from Bugaboo Stamps.  Go to http://bugaboostamps.com/home.html and check them out.  Every time I go, I find stamps that I have never seen before!  Jodi has a wonderful variety of stamps.

My first card is made using my new image "cupcakechocchipgirl".  I also used a sentiment stamp from AMuse.  I used the swirls cuttlebug folder, a brand new roll of ribbon that I had on hand, some DP from my stash, and Papertry cardstock.  I colored the image with copic markers.  I used stickles on the icing.  I think she turned out cute--and makes a very cute Valentine card!

This card will be entered in several challenges:

This challenge was the "debut" challenge.  You were to use something new--and I used a new (to me) image, a new AMuse sentiment, and new ribbon.

January's challenge is to make a Valentine card.  With this "love" sentiment, I think choccupcakegirl makes a great Valentine!

This last challenge for the cupcake image is to use 3 different textures on the card.  I used an embossing folder, grosgrain ribbon, a turtured flower with a rhinestone, and stickles.

This card that I showed you earlier for the new release is from Jodi's new Mildred line.  It is called grandma off the streets!  I will be submitting it for the challenge at:

For this challenge,a button or buttons were to be used.

My last card is made with the image--Ruby Tequila.  I am using this card for a SCS swap, hosted by design team member Michele (Delfinaus).  For this part of the swap, you had to use a digital stamp and a fancy fold.  I used my Ruby Tequila image on a criss cross card.  They are so much fun to make!  I used Papertrey cardstock and ribbon, some DP from my stash (I never know about my DP because I hoard small pieces!), and small pearl embellishments.  I colored this card with copics.

This card will be entered into the challenge at:

This challenge was to create a card for a girls' night out!  Since the sentiment on the inside of the Ruby card says "one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor", I think this card is very suitable for this challenge.

Hope you enjoy my challenge cards!
