Stepped up already…

CCREW617SIPFor the month of June, the Creative Crew on splitcoaststampers.com asked us to only do 5 projects, instead of 6. I chose to make this challenge already stepped up and not do the simpler version of this card.

I also used this card as a color challenge that my upline put out.  The challenge was to make a card with all the In-Colors or to make 5 cards using only one In-Color.  So…. I used them all!

The stamp set used was Feathery Friends.  I used all of the In-Color markers for ink, I used all the In-Colors for paper too!  The flower centers have Clear Faceted Gems.  Cute huh?

Challenge #6

positivedifferenceThis challenge was a great one. In short, it was “pick a stamp set out of the annual catalog (I’m an over-achiever, I chose two) and use two embellishments on the card.” Now, oddly enough, I am not sure what’s current and what’s retired in my craft room now BUT I just so happened to buy a few of stamp sets out of the annual catalog for a project I am going to be working on. So, I knew they were current…. LOL.

Here’s my card. I used Gorgeous Grunge and In This World. My two embellishments (ok. I used three… I hear you thinking it…) are Basic Black Baker’s Twine, Silver Metallic thread (which is really hard to see) and Metal Rimmed Pearls. I am a monochromatic girl, as well as a butterfly girl. So this card tickles me to the core! The layout I CASE’d from something I saw on Pinterest but can’t find the card again. UGH! She didn’t use any of the same stamp sets. The card is different but similar. ANYWAY….

I also just recently got my hands on new Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits! OMG!! I am so in love with these. It also works with the Layering Ovals, Circles and Squares Framelit sets. Of course, I used the Layering Ovals set for the card.
