Two PCC Challenges

Hi Everyone!

This week PaperCrafter's Corner has TWO challenges. The first is week 96 for the Magazine Monday challenge. Here's the inspiration piece:
The second is the challenge for Earth Day. The requirement is that the "entry must be a papercraft project – it must somehow incorporate paper – and that it must include an element of recycling, re-purposing or re-using, and be submitted by the deadline."

I started with the Earth Day challenge. I had a cigar box that I've been meaning to decorate. This challenge got me moving. I didn't want to do a lot to it because it will probably be tucked on a shelf. I used a K& CO pad that I bought a long time ago. After I finished the box I had lots of scraps. So in honor of Earth Day I used them up making cards. 
 As you can see the paper I chose for the box also fits the weekly challenge. The colors (green and black) and butterflies from the inspiration are all in the paper. The cards even fit inside the box!
That's it for me. Have a great week!

PCC #95

Hi Everyone! 
This week's inspiration at PaperCrafter's Corner image is so fun. 
It got me moving to create a card that I've been wanting to make for a while.
It's very simple but fun to create. I used Prismacolor pencils but it can easily be made with paper scraps, ink, paint. 

It's a BEAUTIFUL day today so I'm getting myself outside. 
Have a great week!

PCC #94

Hi everyone! I just have a quick post today. 
This week's PaperCrafter's Corner Magazine Monday Inspiration was easy for me. As soon as I saw the denim with red I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Sorry about the poor photo. Evening light is rarely good. :)
I used a very old denim paper from my stash and a Hero Arts stamp. I used Prismacolor pencils to color in the image. I decided I would stamp a sentiment on the inside on the this card.

Have a GREAT week!

It's week 93!

Hi Everyone!

This is week number 93 at PaperCrafter's Corner. With Easter being on Sunday it's no surprise that this weeks inspiration is Easter themed. 
Although you can do just about anything with an image like this I picked one egg for my card.
Can you guess which one?
I even got to use up some scraps. 
Here are a few more with scraps:

This last card is done using shimmer sprays. I never really liked them at all. They never sprayed straight. I was about to toss them all until I saw a video on a different way to use them. All you do is wet the watercolor paper and drip, not spray, the shimmer sprays on it.
 I love the look. Guess I'm not tossing those sprays afer all.

Have a Happy & Blessed Easter!
