100 Cards/100 Days Challenge

Howdy friends.  I have started a new challenge over on SCS.  I am playing along with the 100 cards in 100 days.  The deal is, I cannot buy any new product except adhesive until I have finished the 100.  This is my own personal addition to the challenge.  There is one exception though.  I am hoping to hit the Hobby Lobby down near the Hershey area when we go on vacation in July.  Since we don't have any LSS here in our area, and I have never been to a Hobby Lobby, I really want to go.  So, my personal challenge is to use what I have to make the cards.  I really, really need to use up my stash.  If you scroll down a few posts you will see why..LOL.  I am also going to try and use up some scraps.  I have way too many of those too. 

Anyway, I started the challenge yesterday.  I am  a bit behind some of the other ladies in the challenge, so I need to play catch up.  I made 24 cards yesterday but am only counting them as 4 towards the challenge.  I made these for a swap so each one had to have 4 in it.   Thanks for looking.

This is the first one.  The card base is GinaK Chocolate Brown.  I used a piece of Turquoise cardstock from my scrap stash and the DP is DCWV.  The turquoise cardstock was border punch with a Fiskars bracket punch.  I stamped  the image (Inkadinkadoo)  in TCP Chocolate Brown on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla.  I tore the bottom edge of the stamped images as well as the mat, which is a piece of brown cardstock from my scrap stash.  The butterfly is from K&Co Susan Winget collection.
 This is Butterfly #2.  The cardbase is Stampin' Up Whisper White.  The DP is from K&CO Susan Winget Collection.  The turquoise strip is from my stash collection.  The huge butterfly is from the Susan Winget collection, too.  I stamped the greeting in Colorbox Catseye ink.  I am not sure which company the stamp is from.  I got it at Ollies, which is an outlet store in my area.
 On to Dragonfly #1.  Again, the patterned paper is Susan Winget.  The cardbase is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake.  I just love the kraft color.  I have been hoarding it because I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more product until I used up some of my stash.  Dang it !!  I used a shipping tag for the greeting which is from GinaK's Friends Set. I stamped it with Colorbox Catseye Purple.   I tied it on with a piece of purple ribbon from Michael's.  The dragonfly is from the Susan Winget collection.
 Dragonfly #2.  I used the same collection from Susan Winget to make this card.  The image is from GinaK's Springtime collection.  I stamped it in Broken China Distress Ink then stamped over it with Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used a Fiskars scallopped border punch for the bottom and inked around the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.  I mounted it on a piece of Olive Cardstock from my scrapstash.  The greeting is from the GinaK set, Eclectic Summer Sayings.  It is also stamped in Broken China Distress Ink.  I mounted it on a piece of the olive cardstock and punched holes in each side using my Cropadile.  I added a piece of sheer ribbon from my stash to each side and wrapped it around the back.  And, again, the dragonfly is from the Susan Winget collection by K&CO.  I just love K&CO. 
So, those are my first four cards for the 100 days challenge.  If you would like to join the challenge, please click  HERE  .  Thanks so much for checking out my projects and stay tuned for Day 2.
