Bonus Challenges Post!

I think this may be the most cards I have ever made in a week. :D But yes, I'm back, with two more cards to complete ALL the current Unity World Card Making Day challenges. 






This is for Unity's current kit of the month sketch challenge. I had a brilliant design in mind, till I realized I was thinking of a Unity/Jillibean Soup set, not a kit of the month. (I think that card may still show up in a future Friends with Flair post!) So I thought some more, and decided to use the September 2011 kit. I thought the kraft cardstock had a nice envelope/packaging look to it, and randomly stamped the postmark and cancellation in red and green to match the three "stamps".




And finally, this card for Unity's monthly challenge. This month, it's all about pumpkins. And I just happened to have one on this Halloween stamp, from the same kit (what a surprise) as the Christmas stamp above. I added the postmark and cancellation from the same kit, then some images from Fright Night. Why yes, I do quite like that spooky tree! And no, of course that little BOO banner isn't covering a mistake, whatever made you think that? It's, um, balancing the twine in the opposite corner. Hard to believe from the photo, but the tree, BOO and mat are actually dark purple. The postmark is black. 
Since it's Friday, I'm linking up to Friends with Flair! And my Halloween card is going into the current Simon Says Stamp inspiration challenge. 
Phew! :D Have a great weekend. 

Suppies: (joy stamp) white & Stampin' Up kraft & real red cardstock, Unity September 2011 Kit of the Month (All Seasons) stamps, Colorbox evergreen & frost white & Stampin' Up real red & garden green inks, clear & Wow opaque white embossing powders, Twinery maraschino twine; (BOO) purple & Stampin' Up naturals ivory cardstock, Unity September 2011 Kit of the Month (All Seasons) and Fright Night stamps, Versamark & Memento tuxedo black, elderberry & tangelo inks, clear embossing powder, Twinery mandarin twine

Pin It Now!
