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

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


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!!

Best Day Ever

2 challenges inspired today's card...


Retro Rubber Challenge // #rrcb189 ...A color challenge!!  It is a throw back to the 80's!!  I used Mariana Mist, Flirty Flamingo, and Pear Pizzazz along with Stampin Up's Best Day Ever stamp set.  Retro indeed...cause this set came out in 2015 as a Sale-A-Bration set.  The tiny triangle in this set was perfect for recreating the gnarly 80's pattern that was pictured.

Sketch Saturday // #707 ...A sketch challenge!!  It has been a long time since I played along with Sketch Saturday...fun to play along again!!




Update:
Happy Dance!! This card was a top pick over at the Retro Rubber blog!!  It is always a shot in the arm when one of my cards gets a shout out!!

2 Cards...

Card #1 inspired by 1 challenge...


Jingle Belles // 8.12.22 ...A Christmas challenge!!  The challenge for this current challenge is to make a slim line card.  I am still looking for a source for slim line card bases and envelopes.  I have asked this question on several occasions when a challenge calls for a slim line card and have yet to have a response.  So I will ask again...where do you get your slim line card bases and envelopes??
Slim Line 8.12.22



Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...


Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT569 ...A sketch challenge!!  The current challenge also gave us the option of using an inspirational photo as well but I just used the sketch.

Just Us Girls // #JUG646 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this challenge is to use teal, yellow, and tan.  This combo calls for another Hippiest Hippo card...cause they are just so stinking cute!!

TicTacToe Challenge // #tttc175 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning 3 in a row on this game board:  polkadots (designer papers), die cuts (stitcher rectangles & Hippiest Hippo bundle) and embossing (wavey folder for background)!!

Make the Cards #61 // As You See It #281

My card was inspired by 2 challenges...


Make the Cards // #61 ...A color challenge!! The color combo for this challenge is pink, green, orange.  A combo that calls for florals!!   There is not much green but if you look close in the bottom right hand corner you will find it.

As You See It // #AYSI281 ...A recipe challenge!!  Use all 5 ingredients on your card.  The ingredient list is...Bright Colors, Floral Stamp, Water Colors, Patterned Paper, and Die.  I started with some bright colored designer paper, stamped flowers all over it with a floral stamp, added some ink to the center of the large flowers with my aqua painter for my water color element, and finished it off with a die cut sentiment.
