GDT Post for Meljens

Hey there everyone. I know this is late and should have been posted Saturday but I still want to share with you my Guest Designer Spotlight at the Meljen's Designs DT blog.

This is the start of my FINAL week as GDT and I am super sad that it is coming to an end, I love everyone I have gotten to know over there. They are truly some great and talented people.

I have two cards to share with you today, the first one I have also entered into a few challenges.

This card is made using the "Seagull Frame". I used the Core'dinations cardstock and embossed it with Swiss Dots and then sanded it down to reveal the color through the texture. Then I took another piece of the same color and tore it on the edges and then sanded it a little to roughen it up. The chipboard stars I inked and adorned with random blue buttons. I think this card truly has that beachy vibe.

I have entered the seagull card into 4 challenges:
1. Cute Card Thursday http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ Challenge 127 - Dieing for a Punch! (No die-cuts or punches)
2. Character Cafe http://www.charactercafe.blogspot.com/ Crumbling/Tearing plus 2 or more buttons
3. Christmas Stampin' All Year http://christmasstampin.blogspot.com/ create a non-Christmas card
4. Stampin' for the Weekend http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/ Anything Goes


This next card is using the "Retro Cherries" Freebie and "Oval Cherry Frame". For this I wanted to keep the papers simple because of the images so I just used plain black and white cardstock which I edged using my border punch. I added the polka dot paper to tie in the colors of the cherries and the frame. I used some rickrack and red bling to finish it off.

Well that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed my spotlight as much as I did. LOL. I will be back on Tuesday for the Meljen's DT Inspiration Post.
Lastly, I have a few reminders for ya. One is that there is a fab freebie on the Meljen's Designs DT blog.
Also you have got a couple more days to enter the current which is HAPPY BIRTHDAY, in honor of Dee's birthday last week.
Don't forget the sale in the Whimsy shop, all stamps are on sale for 25% off until the end of August! That is today and tomorrow people.
