Getting Dirty

I feel like I am always a step behind on following challenges. I know it shouldn't matter, but there are A LOT of stampers out there that crank cards out within hours of the challenge being posted. How do you ladies do it? I'm about a week behind on these challenges, but yesterday I finally took a look at the Dirty Girls Challenges over on SCS. You have to be a member of the Fan Club (so worth the annual fee!) to see the amazing work of the Dirty Dozen each month on the 15th. This past week they have been celebrating by posting challenges each day by a different dirty girl, past and present. I only had time to do two, so I picked two of my ALL Time Favorite Stampers, Julie Ebersol (JulieHRR) and Lauren Meader (mytime). Here is the card I did for Julie's challenge-Create a clean simple white one! I used to think this was hard, but the more you work with a white card base the easier it gets. I love how this one turned out! I used white stampers select cs and used my scoring blade to create a dry embossed line across the top and bottom of where I wanted my image to be. I then masked off the top and bottom of the card base with copy paper and stamped my flourish from Baroque Motifs in River Rock. I added the little flowers and the Birthday sentiment (PTI) in Soft Sky. This card was also for this weeks color challenge except I used white instead of vanilla (oops, got focused on Julies challenge and forgot about the vanilla). I then sent the card through my cuttlebug with my pin dots embossing folder along the bottom third of the card. To finish it off and add a touch of pretty I took the stitching out of the Soft Sky ribbon and tied it on.
Check back tomorrow to see my monochromatic card! Hugs,


  1. This is so pretty!! I love the double ribbon and the touch of soft colors make it elegant!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful card! I've always wondered how they crank those cards out so fast too! You're not alone!

  3. This is gorgeous!! Don't feel bad, I've been off all summer, have no children, and I still am behind and can't crank the cards out like that! lol!

  4. I just LOVE this card!!! Don't worry about not getting challenges done in a timely manner, I always have good intentions of doing all the challenges out there but just never seem to find the time!!!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
