Friday Nite Challenge at Scraps of Color

What a FUN nite from 6:30pm-11:30pm on SOC making four cards while chatting with some awesome friends.   It started with a challenge from Mary Joyce to design a card from the three ladies making it funny.  After seeing the last lady with the peace sign. I thought of Love, Peace and Soul from Soultrain.  Didn't want to cut them out individually and separate so I came up with Love, Joy & Peace baby!  Had a lot of fun designing their outfits and thought the perfect paperpack to use was Basic Grey Lime Rickey.
Products used:
Basic Grey Lime Rickey pp
Copic marker
Marvy LePlume II markers
Hero Arts alphabet stamps

We moved on to our Friday nite 30 minute card challenge  hosted by Renee 
The 1st challenge was to use black & white, ribbon, button, flower, stamped image or sentiment.   It took me about 40 minutes. I double matted the stamped image and cut out the popcorn & bottle using pop dots to adhere to the card.  I tied two different black & white ribbon to the striped one.
Products used:
Hanna  stamps - Cslumber
PaperStudio flower
Ribbons from Hobby Lobby

The 2nd challenge was to make a masculine birthday card.  It took me about 45 minutes.  I pulled from my stash and took more time to give it a distressed look by inking the edges, cutting out the stars, and working with the cardboard.  I love the way it all came together.
Products used:
Scrappy Cat clear stamps - Birthday Wishes
The rest is scraps from my stash including the cardboard

The 3rd challenge was to make a card using an animal for a childs birthday.  Finally a card I made within 30 minutes.  I think I got the swing of it now!  If I had more time I would have embossed the owl.  Instead I used stickles to make it pop and inked the edges and background.

Products used:
We R Memory Keepers pp
Inkadinado stamps
American Crafts thickers - daiquiri
