Kathy Krug here and I am so excited to be the hostess for this week's Mod Squad Challenge. Thanks, Joyce, for asking me.  

Let's make it easy... Anything Goes plus using any brand of die that One Happy Cut sells. That's easy since they carry all the major brands.  Be sure to list the company that makes the die or dies you use. 
It is a prize week with One Happy Cut offering a $15 gift certificate for one lucky winner who will be selected RANDOMLY. 


Here is my card. For my focal point, I used the Zinnia die by Spellbinders. I must tell you that it is a time consuming flower. Lots of cutting and gluing, but the results are beautiful.




 Here are the other dies I used.
Die Versions brick cover plate
Spellbinders Lotus Pendant die
Die-Namites Beautiful flowers
Impression Obsession Hydrangia stem

Have fun!!!  I am looking forward to seeing what you  create. 



WOW, you all are awesome! Judy sure had a hard time picking the top 3, so many gorgeous entries.

For this weeks challenge I want you to use water and/or a sky on your card. You can paint, color, emboss, however you'd like to depict a sky and/or water. I am learning how to color with light and not all that successful yet...but I am practicing LOL. It would help if my white gel pen would cooperate:-) I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

These stamps are amazing. Most have a multi-stamp feature that lets you get great detail in your images using several colors. There is real dimension with a 3-D effect. For my card I used the Kitchen Sink Lighthouse Stamp Set


 I stamped on glossy cardstock. For the rock and lighthouse I used one of the "Color Recipes" from KSS. I used Distress and Marvy inks to sponge the sky and water. My Signo pen for the white on the water kept stopping and not working:-)
