Creative Crew Cards

Hi everyone!  I have a few cards for you today!  These are the cards I made for this month's Splitcoast Creative Crew challenge.  We'd love to have you play along with us!  The challenges this month are great!

This card was made for the color focus challenge which was to use the soon to be retired incolors.  I decided to use all of the retiring incolors in my stamped flower image.  I just stamped the flowers and and I added a few basic pearls in the center of some of the flowers and then I cut out my image using the label framaelits.

My background was dry embossed using my honeycomb embossing folder and they all I needed to do was to assemble my card and add my ribbon and sentiment.

This card was made for the Holiday focus which was to create a masculine card and we were to try using a non-masculine set or try a new technique.  For this card I decided to try a new technique. 

I never tried double embossing before and so on this card I decided to give it a try.  I dry embossed my background using the chevron embossing folder and then using my versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder I heat embossed over the raised embossed background.  It turned out great and it looks neat in person.  I even clear embossed over the blue truck on my image.

To create my image I did some paper piecing.  I really didn't want to color the image so I just did some stamping.  I stamped my image first using cajun craze ink and then I stamped it again onto a piece of scrap paper using night of navy ink.  I cut out the night of navy truck and placed it on top of my main stamped image.  I did the same thing for the 'fresh apples' sign using more mustard ink.  I did use my SU markers to color in some of the grass and the apples.

This card was made for the Holiday focus which was to create a masculine card and we were to try using a non-masculine set or try a new technique.  On this card I used the create a cupcake set and I tried making masculine cupcakes.  What do you think?  I think it worked.  The cupcake tops were stamped, punched out and dry embossed using my perfect polka dots embossing folder.  The bottom of the cupcakes were just stamped and punched out.  The center cupcake has a bow stamped on it and I added a small rhinestone gem.

I did some paper piercing along the top and bottom of my baja breeze card stock and I used my scallop border punch along the bravo burgundy card stock layer.  To complete my card I added some twine and then stamped the sentiment.

And lastly, I made another card for the holiday focus which was to create a masculine card and we were to try using a non-masculine set or try a new technique  I'm not sure if I like the way this card turned out, but I figured I'd better let it alone before I mess it up.

I used the leafy image from the SU Just Belive stamp set.  I stamped the leaves and then the sentiment slightly over it.  I then cut it out using the ovals collection framelits.  On the crumb cake oval I added some paper piercing and I did some distressing using my scissors along the oval edge.

I even tried a new technique on this card.  After I dry embossed the chocolate chip layer using my argyle embossing folder I swiped my white craft ink pad along the raised areas to sort of give it the sanded/distressed look.

My background was dry embossed with some lines using my simply score board.  I decided to add some ribbon with a button and twine.
