It’s Dare to Get Dirty week at Splitcoaststampers and there are multiple challenges to play every day through Sunday.  I really wanted to play yesterday, but it just never happened.  For today’s challenges I started with JulieHRR’s because I have been dying to get out some Fabriano notecards and make a set of some sort.  I made a set of notecards just about every month I was in the Dirty Dozen, so this seemed very appropriate for DTGD08.


I recently got the Just Rite Monogram stamper and some accessory sets and I’ve been dying to play with them.  I’ll be going to lunch with my friend Kimmie on Friday and her birthday was a couple of weeks ago so this will be the perfect little gift for her.

The monogram was stamped by inking the “K” with a Stampin’ Up! Real Red marker and the border was inked with Versamagic Dew Drop Chalk ink in Sea Breeze.  After stamping the monogram, I added the two score lines using my Scor-Pal.  Then I masked off the top portion and the monogram with Eclipse masking tape and stamped the SU retired background Filigree in Real Red ink – I still love that background! 

I didn’t have exactly the ribbon I wanted so I created some using SU ivory taffeta ribbon and my BG02 Copic marker  which coordinates closely with the Sea Breeze ink (as well as with SU Cool Caribbean).  The final touch was yummy red Kaiser Crafts pearls.

Here’s a close up.




I’m off to work today and I have prayer group tonight, but I hope to play some more challenges tomorrow.  I hope you’ll come play and chat with the DD and DD Alums this week – it’s tons of FUN!  If you’re not already a SCS Fan Club member this is the perfect week to join!  Thanks for stoping by.


ETA: I just saw that Emily used one of my cards as the sample/inspiration for this week’s Color Challenge on SCS – this is the regular weekly challenge open to all. 🙂 It’s this card and the colors are River Rock, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla.  You are welcome to play and even to combine challenges if you like!  THANKS Emily!!!!

    So glad to see that circle punches doesn’t have to be used in making the cards.
    I really like them this way.

    REALLY beautiful notecard set, and they look just perfect! I just may have to case these for some thank you notes I’ll be needing… Thanks!
