 Hello, Judy Woodland and Vicki Dutcher here, and it's time for a new Mod Squad Challenge.  

CHALLENGE:

Our challenge for you this week is to make a card featuring The Great Outdoors. This can be anything from a critter who lives outside to a beautiful outdoor scene. And it can be any season.....all four are accepted.


***** As Donna mentioned last week, there is one new rule change, you may enter our Challenge up to 3 times, with a new unique project each time. *****



This week our SPONSOR is the wonderful stamp company  

 

Kitchen Sink Stamps offers us a discount CODE: ModSquad15.

  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! And one of the best features of this stamp company is that there are color recipes for most of the multi-step stamps, so you don't have to guess what colors to use. There are even alternative colors if you don't have the inks that are suggested. Maria from Kitchen Sink Stamps is a member of our Mod Squad Challenge Facebook Group so feel free to say Hi or ask any questions.

THE PRIZE
$25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the store. 
You can pick your own goodies and there are lots of choices!


Here is a sample for you:

This card was made using the fabulous new stamp set, just released last month, called Multi Step Icy Pond. All I could think of was a secluded pond where two skaters are enjoying a crisp winter afternoon. I used a product called Crackle Accents by Ranger to give the pond some dimension.

Here's a closer look:

Here are the ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder
GKD Inks in:
*Ocean Mist
*Blue Raspberry
*Grass Green
Simon Says Stamp Olive Ink

Happy Wednesday!

 Donna Phelan here hosting this week's Challenge!

***** One new rule change, you may enter our Challenge up to 3 times, with a new unique project each time. *****

The Challenge.......FROM THE HEART

The challenge this week...is to make a card that incorporates.....you guessed it.....HEARTS.

This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

http://cas-ualfridaysstamps.com/


All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele , and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 

The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

 
2 Prizes

2 - $15 Gift Certificate each to the STORE

My first card


I used the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps,  3 In A Row and matching dies, Tic-Tac-Toe.  Grabbing my Minc Foiling Machine, I added some pretty Gold Foil to my die cut hearts.  Stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink. 


Finished off the inside with a second sentiment and a pretty little heart.



My 2nd card

I used the same CAS-ual Fridays Stamps for a different look.  Stamping sentiments, 'nuff said and xoxo while using heart die cut outs in many different Designer Papers.  I first drew 3 straight lines using a Sakura Silver Glitter pen so I could line my hearts up adding Adhesive Pearls for accents.


Now it's your turn to create with hearts, hope you join in all the fun.....remember there are TWO prizes up for grabs!
