Challenge #23--Stamp and Stomp

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Good Morning Fellow Crafters,

Welcome to Challenge #23 at Just A Scrappin'. The challenge for this week is to use the colors lime green, orange, another color and a stamped image to create a card, layout or project. I will write that at first the color challenge had me thinking--Really! However, once I had a moment to think it over I thought, "This color scheme might be great for a masculine color if anchored by black."

So off I went to my craft room to pull out paper and embellishments for my masculine card. I used a French script background stamp along with twine and other embellishments to complete my card.

Please take a moment to visit the Just A Scrappin' blog to see what the other DT members created.

Hello fellow crafters,

I am interested in starting a card business and some of the best individuals to help and encourage you in this area are your family and friends. Enter my mom. My parents have a neighbor who loves to garden and share the fruits of his labor. So my mom commissioned me to create a Thank You card for her neighbor. My mother is creative, she owns an Expression 2 and Cuttlebug, but she wanted to help me get my start. She had something in mind and wondered if I could make it work. After she gave me her ideas I set out on a creative journey. My mom and dad were both pleased with the end result.

Hello fellow crafters,

I have been in a card making frenzy. Unfortunately, I have not had time to post the pictures to my blog. When life events arise, I love to make and send cards. This batch of cards includes Birthday Wishes, Thank You, Thinking of You, and Just Because (we all need one of those cards once in awhile). Thank you for stopping by.



Challenge #21--Volleyball, Anyone?

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Good morning fellow crafters,

It is that time of the year--sports! I am not a sports girl myself (don't even mention the Cal vs. Stanford game around my husband), so this week's challenge really was something of a challenge for me. For the Just A Scrappin' challenge we are told to use a volleyball theme incorporating the colors gold, maroon, and white. Plus do not forget the brads.

For starters, I do not own a single Cricut cartridge with sports of any kind...not good. I improvised. I used a beach ball (and I have seen individuals playing volleyball with a beach ball so I think it counts). Then for the brad I used my imaginisce brad-maker, which is awesome! Presto, this week's challenge is a hit!

Thanks for stopping by and please do not forget to check out the other DT members' projects.



Recipe: 5" card base

Paper: Recollections, stash
Cartridge: Birthday Bash (5" circle card base); Pack Your Bags (volleyball 5"); Indie Art (gypsy 2.50" for the POW and word bubble)
Brad: Imaginisce
Cuttlebug folder: dots
