STV's new Release Party - 2 challenges done (-: and MFP's Challenge

This week Gina released the new stamp sets for September over on Stamp TV. I managed to get two of the three challenges from the release party done - hope to do the third one tomorrow....

For my first project, I've done a photo album (one of those adorable ones for $1 and perfect for a baby or grankid brag book) to enter in Lee's Challenge to make a 3 D item or anything BUT a card. If we had it all wrapped we get entered twice! I didnt wrap mine because it will be wrapped on top of my baby present. Made this for a young girl at our church expecting their first baby in it wont be wrapped for awhile (-:

This is from the GKD stamp set Oh Baby from Rupa - ducks colored with copics and the little card was stamped with Vivid's Tuscan Tan and Memento Bahama Blue (dp is scrap of Webster's)

The second one is a card for Theresa's Challenge to highlight with nestabilities - now this has become a technique so many of us do without even thinking its a "technique"  (darn I wish I remembered it in my last Blast from the Past Challenge card)

This was done with two GKD's stamp sets "Tropical Blooms" and "Fancy Tags" by Nina. Using up my SU dp and cardstock is GKD's Vibrant Violet, ink is Memento's Grape Jelly and clear embossing powder, blooms are paper pieced

also entering this one in Vicki's challenge over at Marks Finest Papers! to do a friendship card

both of these were a pleasure to do, easy and uncomplicated for a change (-:

have a blessed Lord's Day,
