Getting Dirty

Hi there, y'all.
For those of you not on Splitcoast Stampers, this week is all about bonus challenges (called Dare to get Dirty) for those of us who are Fan Club members -- it's a relatively small financial investment, and it gets one into bonus galleries and bonus challenges like these! All of today's cards feature multiple challenges, but to learn the details, you gotta join for yourselves!

First up, first 3-challenge card:

The new square lattice embossing folder from SU is pretty nifty on it's own. Here, I embossed my cajun craze panel about 4 times, shifting the angle each time and finishing up with a panel that feels fabric-y -- and it tears really easily, too, just so you know. But it feels cool! Image is from Unity, BG is from tattered angels.

Second, and 3 more challenges:

One of the challenges was to take inspiration from TV. Earlier this summer, I read Julia Child's autobiography. Then I discovered that Cooking Channel plays old episodes of Julia Child and Company, which is sometimes randomly replaced by even older episodes of The French Chef.  I'm hooked. Her show is so, so much more "real" looking than most cooking on TV, and I just love her attitude.
Stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms and Hero Arts.

Third three-challenge card:

More kitchen utensils from a barely-used SU set, along with some dental floss from one of the hundreds of sample-sized flosses from the dentist. No one travels THAT much! Papers are from Oliver (Basic Grey).

One of these things is not like the others:

This is for just one regular ol' challenge -- CAS76. OA papers, PTI and Tattered Angels stamps, SU twill.

I've made more, but I'm a little slow on the photos. Maybe later! Enjoy your day.

You already know I love all these cards. I love the idea of running the square lattice folder through a couple of times--and yes, it does tear easy!! ;)

On to movies: Could you please get out of my head!??! Nobody else has even seen Stranger Than Fiction, much less loved it! Agree with Eternal Sunshine, but have to go with Groundhog Day over Lost in Translation. We *just* sent back Greenberg without watching it. I guess we'll have to check it out again based on your recommendation! :)

I love the eggbeater one!

Love how you stamped on the twill!!! Going to have to try that out... maybe it will make me use my stamps more :)

HAHA, I had to chuckle that both you and Meg have the lattice ef and used it on the same colour!!

These are all fantastic but my favourite two are the eggbeater and the vintage birthday. I love the eggbeater masked into the woodgrain and the way you stamped the sentiment on twill. Fabulous work, Angela!
