Last Minute Lucy

I signed up for the June card challenge on Scrapbook.com this month and now 27 days later I am trying to catch up before the final deadline of June 29th. There are 8 themes and now I have completed four of them. The first card posted today is for the duct tape theme. That blue and white strip is actually some of the new decorated duct tape, can you believe that! I used embossing folders on the white card base and the black card stock. The butterfly was a raw chipboard shape I found in an assortment pack purchased from Michaels. I painted it white and added stickles for a little shimmer and a little strip of gray polka dot washi tape to finish it off. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.



My second card for today is a Scraplift, another theme in the challenge. I used some pattern paper from my stash that I purchased from Oriental Trading a while ago. I was a little unhappy with the weight of the paper but I still like the patterns and it is good for card making. The stamped image and sentiment is from a MFT stamp set gifted to me by my bestie. I did a quick handmade flower and added some crinkle ribbon. I don't normally think about sewing on my cards but this is one time when I could envision some zig zag stitching around the edges, so maybe I will start giving it a try?

Go 'head, Tamika! Great cards. I'm so intimidated by stitching. There's some kinda tool that's supposed to make it really easy without using a sewing machine. *shrugs* I'll have to find that. Looking forward to seeing how you add that element to your cards.
