Bloggers Challenge - Baby or Patriotic

Seeing that it's Labor Day Weekend - my challenge to the players today was to create either a Baby or a Patriotic card...I choose to create both.

My first card is a Baby card and features the Designer Tiles Technique from the TJNL - although I only used 1 DSP, as it was the only baby colors I could find! It also uses the JustRite Baby Stamp Ensemble. I don't actually own that stamp YET, I just happened to have an image stamped from when I visited the JustRite booth at CHA.


My patriotic card uses the Hero Plate from Artistic Outpost for the main image, and because I misplaced my "hero" sentiment from that plate - my JustRite Stampers Monogram came to the rescue! My image on this card is done with the Marker Watercolor Technique (TJNL). For my background, I adhered my card stock to a panel piece then ran it through my cuttlebug folder and distressed the edges.

If you'd like to play along with this weeks challenge, just leave a link to your card here on this blog post, or if you upload to SCS, use keyword BC62.

Have a safe and relaxing Labor Day Weekend!

These are both great, Lisa! I really like the background on the patriotic card--the distressed stripes are a perfect match for the image, especially in red, white, and blue.
