More Stampin' Out Alzheimers Cards

I’m still playing along with the Stampin’ Out Alzheimers challenges. Tomorrow is the last day of the marathon. To play along each person had to donate at least $5.00, with all proceeds going to the Alzheimers Association. The goal for this week-long challenge was to raise $5,000. As I type this, $6,085 has been raised.

Here are two more cards I made this week.

The first was for the Clear Card Challenge. The image was stamped on white cardstock and then colored using a combination of Copic and Prismacolor markers. After masking the rose, I stamped some leaves in Mellow Moss, added some texture using Itty Bitty Backgrounds, and then sponged around the edges. The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps. My clear cardstock is folded over about ¾ inch to the back and then attached with redline tape. The two flowers attached at the bottom corner are Sizzix Embosslits from SU.

* Stamps – SU Fifth Avenue Florals, SU Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Savvy Stamps happy birthday
* Ink – Palette Noir Black, Mellow Moss
* Paper – Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss, Georgia Pacific White, Clear cs
* Accessories – Sizzix Embosslits, Sponge Daubers

The second card was a sketch challenge. After stamping the bird image, I masked it and made the clouds using a scallop circle and sponges. I was able to use a scrap of some two-sided DP for the small panels and added the buttons.

* Stamp – SU Spring Song
* Ink – Palette Noir Black, Soft Sky
* Paper – Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Georgia Pacific White, Porcelain Prints DSP
* Accessories – Nestabilities, Copic markers, Buttons, Sponge daubers
