365 Cards Days #118 and #120

The challenges on 365 cards have been getting more and more challenging. I love it! The only problem is that sometimes it takes me more than one day to get an "idea" so I tend to run behind.

Day #118 challenge was to create a card using a frame. I looked through my stash and couldn't find a frame. Then, I remembered that I had some kits in my drawer and in the drawer were my frames! I used this teeny frame to showcase the wonderful letter "A" (my initial ;) )to create a monogram card. I am thinking of using the rest of the frames to create a little set. These are something that i would have NEVER used! I am so glad I did! Oh, after I finished, I thought that the background piece would have been better if I had used my CuttleBug to emboss it.. oh well...




Day #120- today- the challenge was to use this awesome sketch as inspiration. I had my tart n tangy SU set out that I LOVE but NEVER use! I used the orange to create the little embellishment and then decided to try Versamark on my base. Well, the paper I used does not like to let Versamark soak in to create watermarks. SO luckily I had some clear embossing powder that I used to emboss the watermarks. I am actually pretty proud of myself for thinking of a little "extra". One day I will be like some of the other 365ers and create pure works of art. Until then.... I will continue to practice!



I have also uploaded a video on Youtube and plan to upload more. They are VERY simple videos but I enjoy making them! My username is "scrugglenamp"
