I am participating in two challenges, but I am bad about posting my completed pages. The first two are 6x6 pages I made for the His Holy Name Challenge. Each week we are given a new word. The last picture is a canvas creation for Scripture Challenge 2009. I am actually making 3x5 cards for this challenge, but for trust I decided to use a 5x7 artist canvas. I love using canvas!!!! Click on the blinkies on the side of my page to check out both challenges!

Seeing Spots

For such a simple card, it sure has given me fits from creating it all the way to scanning it.
I wanted to create a card using one of the retiring SU! stamp sets so I used the set Seeing Spots.

This is an inexpensive sets that is very versatile. Today I used it to make
a card for my soon to be 11-year-old. I used a 6x6 piece of riding hood red
card stock folded in half to make a 3x6 card, perfect for putting money in. My
boys always enjoy money gifts!
The spots are stamped in riding hood red onto a 2x6 piece of whisper white.
Happy birthday is stamped in riding hood red onto kiwi kiss card stock. The kiwi kiss
circles at the bottom were punch with a 1/4 inch hole punch and topped with
a little crystal effects.

Next, I hope to post a scrapbook page featuring Seeing Spots. It is one of my favorite sets!

This first image was created on a 5x7 canvas. I got the idea from someone, but don't remember whom.
I first painted the edges with brown painted and then covered the top with dsp from stampin' up! All other papers are SU! also. I used my big shot to cut out the top note and then inked the edges with chocolate chip ink.

This card was made using a sketch from a challenge on Splitcoast stampers. The paper is baja breeze dsp. I stamped the image using baja breeze ink.
