New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash

Today begins a new challenge...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS478 ...A theme challenge!!  Animal Antics!!  What does that mean??  We want you to shop your stash & create a card with animals doing things that humans do.  For my card I picked a frog riding a unicycle.  I love this retired stamp set from Stampin Up...So Hoppy Together.  I have just never been able to part with it and it is perfect for our Animal Antics challenge over at SOS!!  We hope you will hop on over to our blog, check out the other design team creations, shop your stash, and play along with us!!

Animal Antics #SOS478

2 additional challenges inspired this card...

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT570 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch challenge was the perfect partner for our SOS challenge!!  The fact that they suggested bugs as an optional twist sealed the deal!!

INKspirational Challenges // #272 ...A word prompt challenge!!  ROTATE!!  That is exactly what a unicycle does...that one wheel just rotates and rotates!!

Update:This card was chosen at a "top 3" over at Try Stampin On Tuesday!!  A big thank you to the DT for a shout out on this card.

Card #2 was inspired by one challenge...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc383 ...A "what would you do" challenge!!  So, what would you do without white card stock??  Me, I would use kraft as my base and designer papers!!  No white paper on today's second card, and you know what??  I love it!!  Turned out great!!  It can be done without white card stock!!

Card #3 inspired by 1 challenge...

Just Add Ink // #JAI618 ...A color challenge!!  The trio of colors for this challenge...Old Olive, Pacific Point, & Crumb Cake.  By now yall know any color combo that remotely suggests the ocean...I am gonna run that direction with it!!  I am a sucker for the beach, the sea, the sand, the aquatic creatures, and all things nautical!!

Update:  This card got an "honorable mention" from the design team over at Just Add Ink.  Here is what the DT had to say....A fun modern Ocean scene!  A sweet nautical card.  Lovely clean and simple card.
