Prettie Pajama Party

Last night was the Prettie Pajama Party at Paper Pretties. Here are the cards that I made for the challenges.

The first was for the Sketch challenge. I used the Ride 'Em Cowgirl set from My Favorite Things that came in my Paper Pretties box. I haven't used my Apple Cider Designer Paper in a while. . .and I LOVE that stuff! I thought it would work well with the western theme. I cut a strip of cardstock to make the fringe on top. I seem to use that fringe idea a lot lately. LOL The cowgirl is colored using ink pads and a blender pen.


The second card was for the Monochromatic Challenge. I love Blue Bayou and it just happened to work well with the striped patterned paper from the Baby Boy Nana's Nursery Stack. You can't really tell from the picture because I couldn't get a good picture with the card propped up, but the coffee mug is actually on the inside of the card. I punched a layered window in the card front and paper pierced around it to frame the mug that's on the inside. This set is the Look Who's Perky set from Paper Pretties.



The last card was for the No Layer Card Challenge. I LOVE no layer cards. In fact, those were ALL I ever used to make! It's amazing how they've become such a challenge. I'm always worried they're too plain. I know a lot of the other players last night thought it was a challenge too, so I'm sure I'm not the only one! This card uses the Flutter Sophia set that was released last night at Paper Pretties. The card is coloring using Stampin' Up markers and a bit of an Aquapainter.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a wonderful day!

They're all so beautiful! I love the no-layer-card...my favorite, for sure. Although, I do agree that the lack of layers makes it a little harder, I love the way it keeps the focus on the stamp!!

So much creativity in one place!
The fringe is really cool, I love the double matted window and the papers. I love the Sopia card also. You have a magical way with coloring. TFS.

I'm with Shannan, totally having an Oklahoma moment over here!! I used to love to watch that, and I would wake up and stand at the screen door and sing, "Oh What A Beautiful Morning" all the time!! I bet my Mom wishes she had a videocamera back then!! Gorgeous cards, just wish I hadn't missed all the fun!! Thanks for sharing!!
