New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash #514


Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS514 ...A "shopping your stash" challenge!!  This current challenge that begins today has a Winter Wonderland theme!!  

From my stash, I pulled out my "most used" embossing folder and this "not used enough" jumbo snowflake die.  These items made for a classy white on white with just the right pop of color!!  I am excited to see your winter wonderlands...what do you have in your stash that fits this theme?!?  Dig deep and share your creation with us!!  For additional inspiration, check out the fantastic winter wonderland themed card created by the rest of our design team over at the Shopping Our Stash blog.

3 additional challenges inspired today's card...

CAS on Friday // #275 ...A "clean and simple" challenge!!  For this current challenge we are asked to create a WINTER themed card!!  Snowflakes and Christmas make for a perfect winter combination!!

Time Out Challenges // #TOC255 ...A quote challenge!!  The quote for this challenge that is to be our inspiration is... "Winter solitude - 
in a world of one colour
the sound of wind."
-Matsuo Basho
A white of white card with a splash of color seemed perfect for this quote.

Jingle Belles // #JB2402 ...A year round Christmas challenge!!  For this current challenge, we are to use something old and something new.  Mine old is the embossing folder and die, and my new is the printed burlap ribbon.  This brand new roll of ribbon was bought on clearance at Hobby Lobby's after Christmas sale.

The snowflake card was chosen by the Time Out team as "honorable mention"!!  How exciting to get a shout out on this Christmas CAS card.

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Just Add Ink // #JAI686 ...An inspiration challenge!!  Refreshing limes and the color combo was my inspiration from this photo.  Blueberry Bushel and Granny Apple Green make for a very refreshing color combination!!

Sketch~N~Scrap // #SNS258 ...A sketch challenge!!  The trio of squares called for in this sketch worked perfectly for showcasing my trio of lime slices.

  1. Very pretty CAS Design! The embossing on the snowflake works! I had to hide my swiss dots embossing folder from myself just to encourage me to use other folders!
    Great project!
