Card Design: Two Challenges -- One Card...Gerda Steiner Designs PC & Sami Stamps

Once again I've decided to combine challenges with one creation.  I've used the stamp that I got in the Gerda Steiner Designs progressive challenge to create the front of my card and then took a freebie I got from Sami Stamps and used it on the inside of my card.

First up for the FRONT OF THE CARD--Gerda Steiner Designs... Progressive Challenge for August
Gerda Steiner Designs images are just so cute!  Check out the one we got to work with this month... 
This little guy is so adorable.  This image is currently available in the shop for purchase.  Click HERE or on the watermark above to go and check it out.

Here is the front of my card...
General Information:
  • I used a Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen Giron.  I adore her sketches and one of these days, I might even get a card using one done in time to actually submit to one of her challenges... ...yeah, you're right... ...the odds are probably not in my favour since the challenges are only open a week but I suppose miracles could happen (click on sketch to head to blog).
Digital Image Details: 
  • Kid in Pumpkin Costume:  You can find this image in the store.  Details above.  This image was coloured in and grounded with Copic Markers. 
  • The button was purchased as part of a collection at the Dollar Tree.
Paper Products: 
  • Designer Papers:  The two different Hallowe'en themed papers are from Recollection's All Seasons Paper Pad.

Now for the INSIDE OF THE CARD with Sami Stamps...
Sami Stamps is another company that I love.  Unfortunately, my regular monthly work keeps me so busy I don't have a chance to play in their challenges as often as I would like.  However, I was lucky again this month to find a great Hallowe'en image in my collection to work on the inside.

Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps.  Click HERE for the store, and HERE for the blog.  Sami has the most beautiful images and each month offers up a new freebie.  In addition to the monthly challenge there is always great inspiration from the design team.  You won't be disappointed.

Here is what I came up with for the inside of my card...  
Digital Image Details: 
  • Halloween Kitty:  You can find this image in the store in the Hallowe'en section.  I've linked the watermark below to take you to that section.  This image was coloured in and grounded with Copic Markers.
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • I found the perfect sentiment in my collection from Create with TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products:

  • Image and sentiment base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Card base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, black.
  • Solid yellow used for decoration on the front and matting on the inside is Michael's open stock scrapbook paper.  
Challenges I am entering:
  • Sami Stamps -- Anything Goes with a Sami Stamps image
Other Challenges I am hoping to get it into...

    Thanks for popping by everyone! Can you believe that September is almost upon us?  A new season is coming filled with lots of colour, beauty and wonder.  Hopefully I won't blink and miss it.  Time to get to more crafting done.  Hope you are having a glorious week so far.
    Until next time,
