First up, for the Featured Stamper challenge, I CASEd this card by MommaPatti and created this card in her honour:
The Technique Lovers' Challenge "Block that Kiss" was a new technique for me. You have to ink up an acrylic block with a lighter colour and then "kiss" it with a stamp inked up in a darker colour. Then lay your cs on top and gently press all over to transfer image and background. Here's what I made:
Since I had the Falling Snow embossing folder already out, I used it for the background for this card too. I bordered the snowflake panel with silver cs, popped it up on fun foam, and embellished the snowflakes with tiny peel and stick silver dots.
And for the SCS Color Challenge (white, gold, and cherry cobbler), I made this card:
I don't do very many Color Challenges but this one was so perfect for Christmas, and the challenge said to use an ornament for dessert - this immediately sparked an idea for a card.
I think ColorBox Chianti ink is quite close to SU Cherry Cobbler so I used that for the sentiment, along with a dark red shimmery cs for the border.
Both image and sentiment are heat embossed.
So there you have three cards for three recent challenges. Come back tomorrow and see what I came up with for the SCS CAS challenge to base a card on a Salvador Dali painting! Now that was a real challenge!!
