Feature of Barb Ghigliotty at Fascinating Fridays' and Cards by me

Fascinating Friday's at Paperie Designs' Studio is back with a bang... This time our featured artist is Barb Ghigliotty, I am sure you all are aware of her excellence in creativity and amazing cards. So, I thought it was time to know her a little more :) Please check out the link here Barb's Beauty to get an insight into her life and to know from where does this creativity come :)

Now on to my cards, lately I won a gift certificate from Paper Sweeties during the 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop at Case Study. Yeah !! lucky me, trust me I am never lucky when it comes to winning prizes. Probably, it meant to be... The Craft Gods wanted me to use more stamping in my cards ;) LOL. 
So, I thought what would be a better place to use my stamps than Case Study Challenge #154, where the Muse this time is the famous, ever inspiring Jennifer McGuire :), I was also inspired by the sketch at CAS colors and sketches #39 So here's my card...

To make this I stamped multiple color rows of Gingham border stamp (from Paper Sweeties- Borders), cut out the strips and stuck them on a separate panel. I them stamped the panel with Mini Flourish (from Inkadinkadoo). The flourish was a bit more intricate, I decided to make it more solid and colored the blank spaces in flourish with my fine tip Sharpie Marker and then added sequin butterflies (bought from local crafts store), sentiment was stamped (from Paper sweeties - you make me smile) I then drew dash line frames on card base and stuck the panel. The arrows (from Studio G-iClear stamps) were stamped to add some character :) Yeah I did it :D an all stamped card.
The challenges are -

Now my second card. I am a big fan of CASology challenge blog and just can't resist playing along with them. There cue cards always intrigue me to create a card with a new idea :) This time at CASology Week 58, the cue card is PAPER. So here's my card...
It was easy because I hand drew the paper bin and the crumpled papers. It was fuzzy cut and colored with grey metallic pencil color. The sentiment (a quote I read online) was printed. Finally the bin and papers were stuck using foam dots.

Hope you like my card and thank you for leaving me a comment :)
