SUINKWWC29 & Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. It's Wednesday, which means it time for another WHACHADOIN' WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE at Storage Units, Ink & More. This week we are going green. No, not the color green; the environmental type of green. Use something you would normally throw away on your card. So, do you want to play along? If so, check out THIS post for more information. If you upload your creation to SCS, remember to use keyword SUINKWWC29.

For my challenge card this week, I used my SUINK set, GOIN' TO THE CHAPEL. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. I added StarDust Stickles to the hearts and used my Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Pen to add sparkle to the cake. The cardstock colors are Choice Snow White, Prism Classic Red, and Basic Black and I picked up the patterned paper from my LSS a while back. Mary Jo always has the best challenges for the SUINK DT and this week was no exception. I struggled to come up with something to use on my card that I would normally throw out. Then, it hit me. While drinking a pop (I don't know if it's me or a Midwest thing, but I call it pop, not soda) over the weekend, I looked at the pop can tab and thought "Hey, I can use that as a ribbon slide...LOL". So, I slid my ribbon through the tab and covered it with StarDust Stickles, so it didn't look so dull.

Today is also the start of SNEAK PEEKS for the two newest releases from Storage Units, Ink & More. The two new sets are called YOU'RE SOME BUNNY SPECIAL and LET'S PLAY and they will be available starting March 1st. The sneak peek schedule is as follows:

And your pop (soda for me, hee hee)top ribbon slider is fabulous---I sooo love it! Will have to try this cuz' I drink 2 Cherry Cokes everyday so I've got lots of these :o)



Wow!! I am super impressed! I never would have thought of the pop top (I call it pop too) as a buckle! It is so perfect and creative! I am definitely going to case this idea! Love the image and the layout! A wonderful card!



Oh this card is sooo pretty...and I love that shadow effect you have going in the middle - NICE!


How cute, great idea. Love the layout of the card too. Fabulous job.
