Tulsa "State" Fair Card Entries

Here are my three entries for the soon to come Tulsa "State" Fair. Why the State in quotes? Tulsa IS NOT a state!!!! Uh! That just drives me crazy... Oh well, on to my entries. :)

I've had these all finished for the past 3 weeks, but have posted them now because they were judged this past Sunday. When the fair opens, I'll find out if I won any ribbons. Oh, the suspense!!!!

This card was entered under the Basic Cards in the Rubber Stamping division.
I used lots of techniques, and some of the new Stampin' Up ink colors!! Of course, I had to throw in a little Cricut... and I scented all of the cards.

I used the Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade in the new color line from SU on this card. Gotta LOVE the new colors! Only basic layering here, and I colored the Organza ribbon with the ink pad to match the pinks on the card. Yes, it really matches in person. I don't know why it looks 'off' here.

This is the inside view of the above card. The photo corners are from the Jasmine cartridge, SU oval and oval scallop punches, and only one layer.

This card is entered in the Advanced Card, Rubber Stamping Division.
I used LOTS of layers, and to get these 3 lilacs, I stamped 20!!! There's a trick to layering the Kitchen Sink Lilacs, and I had to figure it out!!

I used Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz from the new SU colors on this card.
One of the advanced techniques I used was masking, the layering of stamps, and I actually cut the ribbon to get the effect I wanted from the sentiment.

Here is the inside view of the Lilac card... it is also lilac scented. I hope they appreciate the scents!

I used this card recently for a swap, and loved it SO much, I recreated it for the Advanced Card division. I ended up using it the holiday division instead. I hope they appreciate the crazy amount of work this card actually entails!!!

This card is: Debbie Mumm Harvest Holiday stack, Cuttlebug Autumn folder, Stained Glass stamps from Stampin' Up, Stampin' Up watercolors, pumpkin ribbon, and double inked embossing with Tim Holtz Walnut stain, and Chocolate Chip ink. I also used the Define Your Life Gratitude stamp, and matted it after using the ticket punch. This card was scented with cinnamon. WHEW! :)

Since it is rubber stamping, I did not use my Cricut Happy Thanksgiving cut, but a very pretty stamp I've had for quite a long time.
