WOO HOO!!

I have never been asked to be a part of any design groups before and I am super excited to be a part of this one! The Creative Crew on Splitcoaststampers.com asked me and couldn’t hardly contain myself! I love challenges!! So! I want to give you a bit more details on some of the challenges for the month of May.

The theme for May is “Sweet Surprises” or “Suite Surprises”. I want to show the first challenge. SIP – Step it up! – Create a CAS project of you choosing with the theme in mind. Then create a second project, amped up with more enrichments, additions, layers…whatever you choose to really step it up.

So, here is my clean and simple card. I chose to make it a Sweet Suite Card. hehe. I used the Cool Treats Suite for both cards. I cut a Whisper White piece of paper that measures 3 x 5 1/2″.  I used the exact same size on the stepped-up version too.  This piece is popped up with dimensionals.  This card uses the Cool Treats Stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits… plus, I just used the Tasty Treats washi tape as an accessory.  You will also notice that I have a banner (though it’s hard to see) popped up on the card as well.  I inked up the sentiment with chocolate chip ink, except for “sweet” which is in Watermelon Wonder.


This card, however, I used Watercolor paper instead of Whisper White for the 3 x 5 1/2″ piece and the banner.  I used the Tasty Treats DSP, the Sprinkles Embellishments, added a spoon with silver foil, added a highlight on the ice cream dish and a water color background in Peekaboo Peach.

Tomorrow, i will show you the second challenge, stay tuned!

Challenge accepted

makeawishThis morning, my amazing upline posted a challenge to our group page on Facebook.  The challenge was… Stamp!  LOL.  There’s 9 more challenges, I hope I can keep up as I am sure they will get harder and harder as time goes on…

Anyway, I ran downstairs to my craft room and stamped this little beauty.  NOW that the Occasion’s Catalog is out, I can post links again for you for the supplies.

This card uses the Window Shopping Bundle and some of the Falling in Love Suite.  Now the Window Shopping Bundle is meant for a box. I was trying to think OUTSIDE the box…. LOL. Maybe in the next day or two, I will actually use the box for the box! Wait. huh? That didn’t make sense, did it? Anyway…. I have to try and pull myself away from this color scheme!  I just can’t! But I promise to try in my next post!! hehehehe
