STTS challenge cards

Okay.  I did these two up last nite as part of my Siphoning through the stash challenge.  I think they turned out pretty well.

This first one I am using for a swap card the theme being ‘A’ which of course is for Apple.  I used some PP from my stash and I have no idea who it is by.  The apple image and wording I cut using my Cricut using the Just Because Cards cartridge.  Then I added glitter to the the apple to give it a bit more dimension.  I ran the card base through the trusty cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder (ha! I got some new CB folders so watch for a new dots folder.  I got two new different dot ones and I can’t wait to use them), and then some ribbon from my stash.

The second card I used an image I got from an image swap I did over at SavvynSassy. She looks more blue in this picture (man I take crappy pics) but she’s actually colored in shades of purple to match the paper.  I colored her with my copics and then used some scrap PP for the card.  I cut it out using my Spellbinders #4.  The ribbon believe it or not comes from someplace like the body shop.  If you look closely it has their symbol on it, but I thought that it went well with this card so I used it anyway.  LOL  You’ll also noticed that I did some stitching.  My very first time!!! I picked up this little sewing machine at a 2nd hand shop for $10 brand new!  It has tonz of thread, bobbins, buttons, needles etc in it.  It was a wicked deal!  I’m hoping to do more stitching in some of my cards.  We’ll see how it goes.

I hope you liked these.  As always comments are always welcome!

BTW.. I didn’t do any new cards today as DH and I took DS out for a day at the park and then we went on a cool Cemetery Tour in the city!  Great fun!  Lots of family time.  Tomorrow back to our regular scheduled programming.
