Sharing a couple of cards created for SCS -->

Here are a couple of recent cards that I created for a couple of fun SCS challenges. To see more wonderful Papercrafting designs, to find tons of Tutorials, to find Great Resources and to get Endless Inspiration, visit

This is the first of two SCS cards to share with you today.
***Dancing Queen***
This one was created for an SCS Challenge called "Queen for the Day" found HERE: 

And this is my take on that:

Stamps: Studio G - VC0010 Series 47 - Prom Theme
Paper: White Heavy CS, Blakc Textured CS, Silver Metallics Textured CS, Doily
Ink: BLACK StazOn
Accessories: Ribbons, Jolee's Boutique PROM Dimensionals, Creative Memories Circle Punches, Spellbinders, Rhinestones
Second up is ***ENCOURAGEMENT ***
This one was created for an SCS "Ways To Use It" Challenge found HERE: We were to use Colored INKS in our projects, avoiding any BLACK, WHITE or neutral inks. This is what I came up with:

Stamps: TPC Studio - Faith Greetings Set
Paper: Metallic Textured RED CS, Cream textured CA, Gold Doily
Ink: Marvy Matchables Dye Ink - CrimsonLake RED
Accessories: Spellbinders, Sizzix EF, Fiskars Border Punch, Metallic Red Pearls, Gold Cording, Gold Rose Charm
Techniques: Dry Embossing

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!

Hey Kiddo! I've so missed coming here! Please forgive me for being so errant in visiting your blog. I always love looking at what can only be call your "works of art". Every time I see one of your cards I just stare at it in amazement because they are so rich with detail. These are certainly no exception. Love the little shoes on the first one! So adorable!
