WEEK 1 - Billie and Monika challenge for each other WORDS BACKGROUND and a Baby Onesies Card

I knew Billie Anderson from Ink On My Finger since I was joining Make it Monday challenge (its already closed now, sad), then we continued to encourage each other on our blog...(thanks dear Billie it always a happiness to see your smile face on my comment section :) )

Billie and me have an idea how about if we make our own challenge, MAKE OWN BACKGROUND PAPER. Each week we will pick a theme and Billie make a card (me too) with that theme.

This week is our first week, I choose the theme SENTIMENT as a BACKGROUND PAPER. Here is the card I made:

 I first stamped the sentiment for background with these tools:

Here is the closer look of my Background Stamped Paper:

I then stamped again the sentiment with black ink on a white paper and put on the top of the black paper and adhere on my card, I stamped also 4 times the sunglasses on the main Sentiment.

Here is our CASE ing card from ANGEL RIVERA:

Here is the card I made:(Complete Photo)

  4. Great idea to use the sentiment as a bg, you could enter this into the Birthday challenge at Uniko. And your baby card is adorable, like the font on that sentiment x

  5. Wonderful job stamping your background! I love that mini onsie on your baby card!

  6. Great cards and a great idea using the sentiment as background paper Monika..Loz

  7. You've made such a lovely background with the sentiment Monika!! Love the different colors and your "little" onsie design is very sweet!! Great job my friend! Have a wonderful week! :)

  8. What a fun thing you've got going with Billie! No surprise to me the theme was chosen by you, you're the queen of stamped backgrounds! Your card turned out really cool and masculine.
    I love clean baby cards, yours is truly CAS and so sweet, that little onesie is so versatile...

  9. Two brillian cards Monika! The second one would be great for the challenge at The Crafting Cafe this month, where the theme is Welcome Little One! I do hope you can play!

  17. Love both of your cards...but especially enjoyed that background your created on your birthday card! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday and using our topping too!

  18. I love what you did for our challenge to each other with the word bg. Great look and funny I almost used the same colors.. How funny is that. I used purple in place of your darker green. Thanks for the idea of doing this bg challenge between us.

    I love the simple baby card. Great look and fun card.

  19. Monika love that fun stamp set and your mini baby onesie! Thank you so much fro sharing with us at CASology this week!

  20. What a great idea to start with your own BG with your friend Billie! Love the stylish font of your happy Birthday sentiment and your onesie creation is totally CAS and cute, love it!!!
    Congrats in Top 3 at Amuse Studio!

  21. Love how you did the background! Beautifully done! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

  22. So pleased you did sign up at Uniko xx

  23. Your background is fabulous Monika. And like your little onsie.

  24. Die Idee ist super.
    Dein Hintergrund mit dem Textteil in der Mitte gefällt mir sehr gut.
    LG Flo

  25. You rocked another stamped background, and your baby card is adorable!

  26. Both cards are great. I love that you and Billie have started a fun challenge between you two. I've made my own background paper when I couldn't find anything to match and to save money. I hear things are a tad more expensive where you are. Love your interpretation. The mini card is adorable too...perfect..CAS.

  27. What a clever idea, my friend! The challenge of making your own bg is a wonderful way to encourage and inspire each other. I love your wordy bg. Also the onsie care is CAS perfection! Well done. Off to take a peek at Billie's card now. :)
    hugs, Asha
