Two more goodies!

First, another Unity Customer Challenge card, as promised earlier:

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. All the colored paper (other than the Chocolate Chip base) is My Mind's Eye DP from a *huge* stack I got at Costco months ago for some ridiculously low price...I think it came out to less than $0.03/sheet!

The trailers are stamped, colored with Prismacolor pencils, then cut out and popped up on dimensionals. (For those of you that are Creative Juices...this is my card for tonight!)

The second card is for this weekend's Inspiration Challenge (IC143 - Hotel Fox)...the challenge was to draw inspiration from one of the 61 rooms, each individually designed by one of 21 designers. I chose this room:

And here's my card:

The trees are paper-pieced on Creamy Caramel stamped in More Mustard, and the swirly 'grass' is actually the swirl from the Unity July KOTM journaling block (and idea I got from Cyndi Bundy in this post on her blog). It's paper-pieced from Really Rust stamped in Creamy Caramel. That entire scene is popped up on dimensionals, with the little owl from July's KOTM peeking out from behind the trees to say 'Hi there'! I wish the shimmer and sheen of that woven ribbon showed up on's got an amazing coppery shimmer to it IRL.

Thanks for stopping by (again)! Have a creative day!
