Feeling a little Salty... my card that is...

and by saying it feels salty, well it actually does... because I put sea salt on it.  Yep, I'm super weird like that, hehehehe!  When I saw the Mama Elephant GD Challenge photo, my first thought was Sea Salt:






It could be the giant jar of Sea Salt in the picture, but my mind flew to the tiny jar on my oven stove, hehehe!  And from this thought, came this card:




This card is much prettier in person... the green splotches have a softer green to them, and the main photo couldn't quite capture the layer of vellum around the panel of the card (you can kid of see it in the first photo if you look again.).   Plus the sea salt has a shine to it in person as well.  But I hope you were inspired to think out of the box a little when getting your craft on!

SweetStamps.com 2 for 1 challenge! woo hoo!

Hi!  Since today is the 15th and a Tuesday we are combining the weekly challenge with the monthly technique challenge at SweetStamps.com... woo hoo!  So this week is our Anything goes weekly challenge and Embossing Monthly Challenge.  And here is what I have created...


Supplies:



I never really think to emboss on a stamped image, so I wanted to try something new.  I really like the texture it gave to this little guy, and will def. have to keep this technique in mind more often.  Now remember you can use any products you like to participate in our challenges, and you will def. want to play along for a chance to win the $20 store shopping spree!


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Can't wait to see your creations!
