Here's one I found on splitcoast stampers. I'm not sure what all those numbers mean.

I did it!! I actually did the card right after Cass posted the sketch. Yippee!!! Anyway, here it is. TFL.

WOW that's FAST and really cute, too.

04-25-2008, 11:59 PM
Oh very cute card Diana, and super quick.

it seems that the numbers refer to the paper layers on the card front? and the SC173 is prob a reference #? (ie- SplitCoast#173)

Not positive on this, but the numbers may refer to specific colors of SU products. They use a lot of SU stuff on those challenges there. I think the SC173 'might' be the challenge number and there would have been a gallery set up for it and so for anyone wanting to post in that gallery they would use that number. That's how a lot of them work over there anyway.

Thanks ladies! I was on a roll last night and got 2 done really quick. I'm up early this morning and ready to get at it again. I'll post more later.
Thanks for the nice comments!

Where's yours????

We're still all waking up! LOL Going to work on this one today.

Ok I'm awake now...LOL
Here's my card. The flower paper is wallpaper and the buckle thingy I made on my wb, not rocket science but for me a good accomplishment. The tag thingy is layered, it's a take off fromt the nestibilities ribbon tags that I saw on line. The ribbon is from HL, p/u yesterday on sale. Oh you can't tell the ribbon is pink with white dots. Hmmm after looking at it I should have used my dotted swiss on the main part of the card. Oh well maybe next time. :D

Diana- lovely card! I like your use of score lines and the pretty purple ribbon in the center! (i like the papers too cuz I own the stack!)

Donna- your card in wonderful as well! such a pretty floral, and the touches of black add elegance. Good job on the slide buckle! You are really getting some great use from your wallpaper book!

That wallpaper is perfect and just screams "make me into a card!" Really nice card!

04-26-2008, 03:10 PM
ROFL ...Sam you're too funny. Thanks ladies for the kind words. Have all this wallpaper gotta do something with it, it was free....;)

Donna.........beautiful card!! I love that you use wallpaper. I have a craft robo, but never got the hang of it. It's now collecting dust and I have a new Cricut Expressions. LOVE it!!
My husband is going to use the CR to make stencils. He likes to airbrush.

Great card!!

Thanks Diana.
Thanks to Barb (countryrose) I've learned alot, she gives me instructions and lessons via the pc, otherwise all mine would do is make letters. LOL

very nice :D I used the sketch this morning. post pics later :D cute Penguin Stamp I bought at the store yesterday and the paper to go with it. The paper was more than the stamp!

Donna, LOVE your card and way to go on making the ribbon slide on WB! I need to get Danielle off the other computer so I can print the card sketch, lol!

Nice cards Diana and Donna. I think the wallpaper is a great idea for cards. Everytime the wallcovering sales reps. come into my office to show me the new stuff my wheels start turning. They think I'm interested in it for work when I'm thinking about using it for a layout or cards! Little do they know.

Nice card Carol. What is the paper just behind your title paper? That's really cool looking! Great job!

04-27-2008, 10:37 PM
Karen, it's a Karen Foster paper called Wet Sand. Liked it with the other browns to break up the solids.

04-27-2008, 11:08 PM

Although I like the look of pencil colored and blended images, the process is soooo time consuming.

04-29-2008, 09:13 AM
VERY nice cards ladies! Maybe I'll actually get to this one this week.

04-29-2008, 11:21 AM
Shari, that colored pencil technique may be time consuming the results are fantastic. Great card.
