Some Chilled Drinks and Some Flowers



I found a new challenge yesterday (new to me) called Drunken Stampers. They pick movies as the challenge themes and this week is The Hangover (DSC#129). I am not sure if we are suppose to drink when we create (LOL) or not, but I did have at least 3 cups of coffee before I started this card (that is a lot for me). I have to also admit that I haven't seen this movie so I had to go watch some scenes on the internet and read some summaries before I started my card.

Anyway, I went with the party theme on my card since the movie appears to have a lot of partying in it, and I glitzed it up a bit with sparkle paper, Stickles, Spica pen on my bucket, and silver gems in the corner since the movie is set in Las Vegas. I used my new Doohickey dies to make the banner (love them) and an old DudeTime Doodles image (it is still one of my favs).

Fun challenge - can't wait to see what the next movie will be.



My last card for this morning is a case of Vicki (JustCrazy) for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. Vicki's card (HERE) is so pretty! I changed the colors, layout, and a few other things. Had to do another Thank You card - I still have a zillion more to do for wedding and graduation presents (both kids had major events this month). I used several punches and dies in the making of this card: a Quickcutz die for the base die cut, MFT Dienamics Rolled Rose die for the flowers, MS pine branch punch, MS leaf punch for the flower arrangement, and SU! Butterfly Embosslet for the butterflies.

Hope your Sunday is going well!

  3. I've heard of this Drunken Stampers challenge and wondered if drinking was involved. LOL I would say the coffee certainly gave you an edge here. These are two great cards. I like the feel of the Hangover's card and your pennants are "special". Your second card is just as lovely as can be. I also adore that background paper and your die piece on there. I wish you are great Holiday weekend.

  6. Both great cards! The first challenge sounds interesting. I'm not a drinker...(unless you count coffee) but I'm sure a lot of my crooked cards look like I was drinking when I made them...smile...
    Your second card is very pretty!

  11. Naccy, I remember being so excited when I first found the Drunken Stampers too :) I find actual drinking normally interferes pretty badly with my colouring....lol! I am so thrilled you came to play with us - and you seriously rocked it your first time around! I love that fun image & oooooh, you love Paper Smooches too? Awesome!
