February DDA Lucky Cuppie

February 20th, 2009

Phew I made it!  Definitely not feeling well today – cold or mild flu or something, but I got my DDA card done!  Heck – I’m the hostess and I’ve had the idea all week – I couldn’t NOT play!

This month’s DDA Gallery Reunion is Know When to Fold’em!

Challenge Focus: Cards/Poker/Games/Gambling/Luck – anything loosely related – just tell us how it relates.

Required Element: A card made with other than a standard fold

Restricted Element: No buttons.




I’ve been dying to ink up this little Lucky Cuppie from A Year of Sweets 1 and I paired him with a sentiment from A Year of Sweet Sentiments both from Taylored Expressions.  The dp is Basic Gray Two Scoops and I thought it would be fun to paper piece the rainbow in polka dots rather than color it in.  The image was stamped onto Confetti White cs and watercolored.  Plus I used a black glaze pen and a gold Zig Painty Pen.  It was cut and embossed with a Labels 2 nestie.  This is a hinge fold card – I love making these.  The big green crystals are Kaiser Craft and have been in my stash for awhile.  Cardstock is Certainly Celery and Taken with Teal.


You should be able to find all the cards for this challenge by going to the SCS gallery and typing in Keyword: DCKW209  , but I know there was a problem with this earlier today.

If you are looking for my TECC sample just scroll down one post.  Thanks for stopping by.  I’m off to lie down for a bit.
